Bay filly 1st March Camelot - Whirlygig (Mukhadram)

(The Rainy Day Partnership)

A compact filly by Derby winner Camelot from a family Rae knows well as he trained Poets Dance (out of Whirly Dancer, her second dam) for her breeder Joyce Wallsgrove. Rae was pleased to get her and she should be more precocious than her breeding suggests. She is doing very well and if she continues like this we should be able to get a run into her at the end of May.                                                       (Leading)

Bay filly 22 March Tasleet - Alwafaa (Invincible Spirit)

(Lady Cecil, Family & Friends)

Rae has been keen to get hold of a Tasleet as he has done so well with his first crop including Coventry winner Bradsell, and also because Rae trained both his dam and granddam (!). Anyway this one looks precocious and fast, she is from the Shadwell family of Sarayir and Ghanaati. She is doing nice work now and hopefully will be ready to run soon.

Noble Miss

She is a big filly who will take time but she is cantering every day and moves nicely.

Lia Rose

 Grey filly 3 March Ulysses - Rosa Grace (Lomitas)

A very strikingly marked filly who is the most recent offspring of Eamonn Duggan's great mare Rosa Grace and therefore a half sister to our own Jewel In My Crown and Rosa Gold, both of whom are prolific winners of the yard, we are delighted to have her. She is doing well, Rae is doing plenty of conditioning work with her and she is doing it nicely.

Un-named bay filly 23 February Camelot - Trail of Tears (Exceed and Excel)

Family Matters

She is cantering every day and Rae is pleased with her although she will take time.

 Hits The Front

Bay gelding 6 April Tasleet - Mawqed (Invincible Spirit)

(Storm Again Syndicate)

Rae has been keen to get hold of a Tasleet as he has done so well with his first crop and also because Rae trained both his dam and granddam (!). This compact gelding is out of an Invincible Spirit ex Shadwell mare from the family of Group 2 winner Maraahel and Lockinge winner Mustashry. He is doing well and should be able to start doing some fast work at the end of May.
