Martin’s Blog 16th May

Three runners last night at Towcester and plenty of owners there to support them all and enjoy the evening. Jazzy didn’t jump as well as he can but ran ok to finish 5th on his reappearance after a few months off the track. Ash did well to stay on The Kvilleken after a bad mistake four out which cost him any chance he had of staying on to be placed and he was beaten far enough. He is a fun horse but needs everything to fall right for him but will give the Racing Club plenty of fun this summer I’m sure.

Madame Fiona ran another absolute cracker to stay on to finish 2nd in the bumper. She’s a tough little filly and her attitude is improving all the time and her owner/breeders Roger and Yvonne Allsop were not surprisingly delighted with her again.

This morning Andrew Tinkler and Warren Marston were in and we worked Spice Girl, Ask Alice, Twentyoneblackjack, Cul De Poule, Lerichi Belle, Viking Mistress, Brass Monkey, Whatalove, Young Phoenix, Somewhere To Be and Thady Quil. All the rest cantered. Mary Hambro brought Primogeniture over to work with ours 2nd lot and it was good to see her. We’ve bought her horse Buckle Street recently and are delighted to have him back in the yard.

We were thrilled when Ed Chamberlain from ITV donating a fantastic prize to Belinda’s live auction at the Hollow Bottom on Thursday night. He has donated a behind the scenes tour of ITV’s Opening Show plus tickets to the race meeting in question and the opportunity to join Ed in the Paddock on the day too for two people. We will happily take bids from you if you can’t get to the Hollow on Thursday! However, do get in touch if you would like tickets as they are going fast which is great news.

Some great prizes including a Stable Visit with Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson and also the chance to either look after and/or ride Champion Court – money can’t buy prizes!!!
