Kachumba gets 7th career win

One of our favourites, Kachumba, added another win on Saturday to her tally this time at Lingfield, NOT Brighton,  in the Class 4 Handicap over 7 furlongs. That makes seven wins in all.

She has given The Bucket List Racing Syndicate a fantastic season. For most of its members, this has been their first time in racehorse ownership. The syndicate was set up as a taster experience at a fixed price of £3,000 for the year and has delivered everything we hoped it would to help encourage new owners into the sport.  So what about joining us in 2020?

Victory dance

This strong filly with a great attitude has been knocking on the door in her maiden season but has been unlucky. This was Poets Dance's fifth run, having achieved three seconds and a third (first time out) on previous occasions. She was definitely in command this time and achieved a well deserved win in the EBF Novice Stakes at Lingfield yesterday. Owner Joyce Wallsgrove was thrilled. She can now hopefully relax and enjoy her filly's racing. Thanks to Pat Cosgrove for giving her a very positive ride.

Back to Back Wins at Windsor

Show Stealer had another great run at Windsor yesterday winning the Fillies' Handicap Stakes (Class 4) by a length and half. This win comes off the back of her success in the Windsor Sprint Series Finale at the end of July which put her up 3lbs. She ran a great race, this time with Richard Kingscote on board and without cheek pieces. This morning she is fresh and well - in fact you wouldn't know she had been to a race. She is looking very pleased with herself! 

Kachumba - Boooom!

Kachumba gets her 5th win at Brighton today in the EBF Fillies' Handicap Stakes (Class 4) under Stefano Cherchi who was having his first ride at Brighton AND adding another win to his tally. He had to sit patiently but found a gap when it counted.

The saying "Horses for courses" certainly fits this tough little filly who bounced back from a less successful run at Newmarket the other day having lost a shoe during the race. That makes it Kachumba's 6th career win so congratulations to The Bucket List Racing Syndicate and FTP Equine Holdings. Corks will be popping!

What a Finale!

Show Stealer made it a 7th career win last night in the £75,000 Windsor Sprint Series Finale Handicap with Silvestre De Sousa on board. They are a proven partnership with two wins last year at Bath. Her owner Colin Joseph was at Windsor to enjoy the moment and a very exciting finish it was too. The filly put in a gutsy performance fighting it out right to the end. Rae has trained her from a yearling and now at 6 years old she will be heading to stud at the end of the season.
