Winners and the week ahead
Thank you very much won very well last week at Newcastle, she thoroughly deserved this victory as she had been knocking on the door this year and we are delighted for her owner Mr Gibbons. Thankyouverymuch is now heading off to stud to be covered by Jack Hobbs and we look forward to what this match may bring!
The snow has returned unfortunately and this means our preparations for the start of the new season have been halted slightly. However with this all being said, our staff have done a great job getting the horses out and ridden over the weekend and this morning.Due to this weather we have drawn a line through entries for the Lincoln meeting as we believed it would all be too much of a rush to get the potential runners there!
We have one runner this week and that is Rich Again, he runs in the 8.45pm race at Newcastle tomorrow evening. He looks wonderful in his skin and he is certainly on a favorable mark to do himself justice, we all certainly believe he will be in the first three.
The horses work has been stepped up over the past two weeks and we are now going to turn the screw a little tighter this week by hopefully galloping a few horses at the end of the week.
Finally a little word on one of our former friends Penhill. He was a horse that we always believed to be very good and we are delighted for his new connections that he is finally showing it. He was also a huge success story for us, we purchased him for £24,000 as a yearling and two years later we sold him for £230,000, in the two years he also won three times for us. He certainly has a huge amount of quality and although it was a shame he didn’t run in our name we are delighted that he has shown what we always thought he could do.
