Little Miss Kodi gained a well deserved second win on Friday night at Kempton Park, making it her first win on an all-weather surface. She had a lovely run round under jockey Liam Jones, who made good use of her draw on the rail by utilising the cut away to get her head in front and then pushing her out all the way to the line. We were delighted for owners Steve & Anita Mares who have been very patient … Read More
Harbour Approach finally gets his well deserved win after several placed efforts. Wearing blinkers for the first time & under a very well timed ride by Silvestre De Sousa he was produced late and got up to win by half a length, in the 7f handicap at Kempton Park. It was our first winner for owners Sohi & Sohi and continues the good form of the yard. Terrific team effort!
After a brilliant run to finish 4th in Ascot last Friday we were undecided whether to turn Big Lachie out again this week for the 6f Silk Series final at Doncaster yesterday, but because he was in such good form in himself at home we decided to give it a go… and thankfully it paid off. Young apprentice, Jessica Cooley – who comes in & rides out for us – took the ride and although she was one of the … Read More
Precision Prince continued the good form in August when he made his first start in a nursery a winning one! It was also his first start on the All-Weather and he really seemed to enjoy the polytrack surface at Kempton Park. Kieran O’Neill was having his first ride on him and loved his attitude, as he put his head down and battled all the way to the line. It was a first winner for owners Precision Facades Ltd & they … Read More
It was 12 months ago when Pensax Boy went to Wolverhampton to pick up the feature race on the card and he returned last night to do exactly the same again! A full field lined up & Pensax Boy had to carry top weight, giving away a lot of weight to the younger, unexposed 3 year olds – hence a nice price of 14-1. Liam Jones rode him for the first time, after riding him out on the gallops at … Read More
Seaforth was having just his third run for our yard and made it a winning one – on the 26th time of asking! Returning to Brighton where he had been a good second over 6 furlong a few weeks earlier, we stepped him up to 7 furlong today and he seemed to relish the extra trip. Kieran O’Neill rode him again and pushed him out for a cosy 4 length win. With Big Lachie finishing a good second in the … Read More
Onefootinfront returned to Wolverhampton 2 weeks after his last visit and noticed up another win, with Luke Morris taking over the steering this time. It was the closest of finishes, but Luke was typically strong in the saddle and managed to get him up by a nose. Onefootinfront looked very relaxed & pleased with himself after the race!
Racing Staff week, from 30th June to 7th July, gave us the opportunity to thank our team for all of their hard work & dedication. We took the opportunity to introduce our employee of the month awards, had breakfast rolls & ice-creams whilst at work & a lovely evening BBQ for all of the team, including a couple of our regular jockeys. Megan Wingrove & Abbey Rogerson were the two employees of the month – Megan for her continued commitment … Read More
It might have only been a normal Monday evening meeting at Wolverhampton for most racegoers last night, but for 2 Counties Racing it was a very memorable one as their horse – Onefootinfront – did exactly that and picked up his first race. For many of the syndicate members it is their first taste of racehorse ownership and therefore their first winner. For the team at home it was probably more of a relief to get a winner after loads … Read More
A great win for Big Lachie and all connections, to win the last at Bath racecourse under a well timed ride by Kieran O’Neill. It’s been a frustrating few weeks for the yard with loads of placed efforts, so fantastic for all the team to see him get his head in front. BIG LACHIE turned the form around with the second horse, who had beaten us at Ripon last time, but he stepped up a fair way on that form … Read More
