Monday morning and lots of activity in the yard…

Yesterday we ran ANDALEEP at Sandown. Andaleep is arguably the most consistent horse in the yard, he hasn’t finished out of the first 3 in all of his starts this season. He’s run a total of 18 times under rules without getting his head in front, well yesterday that changed. Andaleep battled well up the Sandown hill to win by a nose, however the dreaded “bing-bong” echoed across the racecourse, a stewards inquiry and the places were revised. Frustrating, but rules are rules. There will be other days for Andaleep, he was in the paddock this morning not knowing any different!

A few days ago we promised that there would be pictures of the horses we purchased at Goffs Summer Sale… Four lovely, exciting stars of the future, we’ve got photos off three of them. Remember to get in touch for more information, all of them are for sale!

Good news that Kielan Woods has recovered from his injury and will return tomorrow at Southwell with five rides! They are tough these jockeys. Kielan rides CALUM GILHOOLEY and CAST IN GREY for us tomorrow.

It’s excellent to have lots more horses on the gallop every morning, the winter horses are cantering and there is lots more activity. Here is a video of 2nd lot this morning. Lilly was wearing the jockey cam on JESSICA RABBIT.

It’s terrific to see the horses looking so well and in such good form. Hopefully the two runners at Southwell continue our good run. This week will be fairly quiet in terms of runners.

Here are some photographs from this morning, have a great week and stay safe!
