It has been a quiet time here runners wise as we have only had a few horses in through the summer. Lawmaking has been running well on the flat, his second at Newmarket his stand out performance so far, he ran on oaks day at Epsom on his latest start but things didn’t go to plan for him there. He has come back fine from that run so we will re group and go again. Belmount Jewel ran a cracker last night at Ffos Las to be second ridden by Richie Mclernon, it wasn’t ideal as they had taken all the hurdles out up the home straight due to the low sun. It was great to see her back on form and gives us lots to look forward to for the rest of the summer.
While we have been quiet on the race course we have been very busy back at the yard and at the sales. All the stables have been pressure washed and re painted all ready for the horses to come back in in July. We have had two new arrivals Shattered Glass was bought at Cheltenham Tattersalls sales, a son of Sholokhov and a winner of a point to point in Ireland on just his second start he is only four. He will go on holiday now for six weeks or so and then come in when the others come back. We also bought Cape Shama a unraced three year old by Cape Cross for Jimmy Chua. Cape Shama is beautifully bred and looks the ideal type to go juvenile hurdling with this season.
