Martin’s Blog 10th February

A pretty cold & damp morning but lots of visitors to cheer us up! Jo Stainer & Jon Hughes were in 1st Lot to watch fast work. Warren Marston, Max Comley & Mark Caswell all in to ride out.

We worked Sporty Yankee, Enforcement, Cotswold Prince – Cut & Run, Buckle Street, Richie Valentine, Bobble Emerald, Lord Condi, Oscar World, Morning Herald, Sugar Storm and Pomme De Nuit 1st Lot.

2nd Lot we were delighted to welcome PJ & Anne Maher back as owners into the Yard and they came to watch Pirate Look work with Catherine, Leigh, Grainne & Rosie Glazebrook. We also worked Solstice Star, Fairmount and Ask Alice.

Dave & Mary Cull were here to help Belinda make breakfasts & entertain. Her carpal tunnel operation yesterday went as well as could be expected but box rest isn’t really suiting her already!

We are thrilled to welcome owner Jim Burley to the Yard and his horse Gold Mountain has already settled it. He looks a cracker & is ready to go with shares available so please get in touch and come and see him. Poor Issy took 10 hours to collect him yesterday from beyond Taunton as the M5 was closed.

Two runners at Uttoxeter today. Lerichi Belle should go very close in the first and after finishing 2nd four times for us certainly deserves to win. I hope today is her day. Lady Vitesse looks up against it in a pretty hot maiden hurdle but is learning all the time and will gain more experience from today’s run.

I was only brief about Brillare Momento in yesterday’s blog but I’m still buzzing from her performance. She was given a very mature ride from Harry Stock and after we both walked the course and agreed the best ground by far was out wide he rode to the letter. Our strike rate together at Towcester is now 4 from 4!

Her owners Ollie & Irene Ryan are such massive supporters of our Yard and good friends too so for her to win with her ears pricked beating such a well fancied rival with relative ease was fabulous.
