Noble Act back in the placings

Noble Act ran another good race and secured a gutsy third, despite having a bad draw at Lingfield on Saturday in the last race of the day. She was prominent throughout the race and held her pace to the end. Well done to Martin Harley and congratulation to her owner Mr Colin Murfitt.

Launch of new syndicate

Four shares in the new syndicate for 2017 have already been snapped up by our existing owners, leaving only two remaining for sale.   Like the winning model of the successful Reprobates, Chestnuts and Calm Again partnerships, the new syndicate includes three fillies - this time by top two year old sire Kodiac (sire of Tiggy Wiggy), Group 1 winner Frozen Power and Group 1 producer, Intikhab, sire of Snow Fairy and Red Evie.  More details appear on our horses for sale page but if you are interested in taking a share at £5,500 + VAT + £1,000 per month, ring Rae now on 07711 301095 as we expect them to go quickly.    

Date for your diary

Great win for Going Up

The Hornets' home bred Going Up (Duke of Marmalade - Guilia) hacked up this evening by 6 lengths at Wolverhampton in a mile and six furlongs maiden.  It was great to see, as he has always been a nice staying horse who was a bit unlucky last time when he didn't enjoy the track in a slow run race.  Tonight there was no mistake however under Martin Harley who gave him a decisive and positive ride, making pretty much all and showing them the way home.  Staying is his strong suit as you would expect and he looks to have a bright future for the Hornets (Eamonn Duggan, Paul Smith and Rae Guest).  Well done to Steve Davis and Shaz who led him up.

Nostalgie progressing well

Kirsten Rausing's Nostalgie ran another good race yesterday and continues her progression up the placings. Unfortunately, this time she came up against a 'hot one' but she showed real grit and determination getting her head down at the finish to secure a well fought second.

We are very pleased with her attitude and look forward to seeing her out again in a few weeks - hopefully this time as a winner.
