Corner Creek got December off to a good start when winning at Southwell(05.12.2017) ridden by Robbie Dunne. Owned by Mark Blandford this was corner creeks first win for us, Mark has had to be very patient with Corner Creek as he showed a lot of promise in his first run but minor set backs since have constantly held him up. He had come back in this season looking fantastic and was a unlucky when falling last time when still going well at Hexham. Gabby looks after him and rides him every day and has done a great job in getting him right, he is still only seven so hopefully there will be a lot more to come from him in the future.
Robbie and Corner Creek get led in after their win.

Sunday (10.12.2017) saw a huge amount of snow descend on the yard!!! while it made for a great snowball fight on Sunday it did not make work any easier and a massive thank you to all the team for having to work in very difficult conditions, Becky had to walk to work, Nicky was unable to get to work but unluckily for the others they all live on site so had no excuses!! We stil managed to get all the horses ridden, hacking around the fields which they all really enjoyed particularly Zafire Aramis who decided to take a roll while Timo was on his back!!
Its a busy day tomorrow with three runners at Cheltenham and Copper Coin heading to Bangor if it survives its early morning inspection. Twenty Eight Guns Mysteree and Kingswell Theatre all head to Cheltenham and all four runners on the day have chances. Mysteree is declared here rather than the Welsh National and with just 6 runners looks a nice race for him as long as the ground is soft enough. Twenty Eight Guns is in a mares chase and is in great form she should not be to far away, Kingswell Theatre is back over the cross country fences and Copper Coin runs in a bumper having been 4th on his first start in a race that has worked out very well he faces just the 3 rivals.
