Wow what a week and there can’t be many tougher performances than Kazontherazz’s winning run yesterday at Uttoxeter under a superb ride from James Best. She was stepping up in trip and I wasn’t sure she’d enjoy the softer ground however she simply didn’t miss a beat, jumping for fun and looked to have everything beaten off turning for home. However, it’s a long way up the home straight and she was challenged after the last but she showed how tough she is to stick her neck out to win by a fast diminishing head at the line. A fabulous result and a shame that none of The Meagher Family could be at Uttoxeter to watch but I have no doubt they were screaming at the tv at home! Well done to Vicki who rides her out every day and to Beth who looks after her.
What a mare Giovanna is. She’s now bred us 9 winners this season (or 10 if you include Back on the Lash’s charity race win with Beth!) from Back On The Lash (4), Pinnacle Peak (3) and now Kazontherazz (2). I wonder if another mare can challenge that stat this season – I doubt it.
That makes it a run of 3 winners from our last 3 runners with Kaz adding to Ben Buie (won Wednesday) and Brorson (won Tuesday) and 5 winners this week with Mozzaro and Brianna Rose both winning at Southwell. If Carlsberg did weeks….!
In London at The London International Horse Show, Freddie & his shetland pony Blackie (Brewards Kerwen) are in action and are absolutely loving it. They had a great race last night to finish a good 4th and are aiming to try and improve on that over the weekend where they have 5 more races. It’s so much fun and a brilliant way to spend a few days before Christmas. Very special.
