Indian Valley finally wins

Indian Valley is a gorgeous looking filly with a very nice pedigree so it has been a source of some frustration that she has yet to get her head in front on the winning post in a race. That all changed on Wednesday at Yarmouth however when she won, albeit a weak race, extremely well. She will be trying to do the same again before she goes to the horses in training sales.

Mirza doubles up

Chris and Lesley's Mirza made it two wins for the season in admirable style, in soft ground at Salisbury on Wednesday. It is that ground and gelding that have been the making of him and he is proving a real little star. He will be off like many of these to the horses in training sales in October. Indian Valley ran well in ground that was too soft for her. Midnight Fantasy clearly has her own ideas about racing these days (not quite on Sariska levels but close) and Gaselee ran encouragingly after a long lay off.

Tattersalls sales next week

Rae is off to the Tattersalls October 1 yearling sales this week, starting looking at horses today. He will be concentrating on fillies as that's what he is most famous for but we are always happy to look at colts as well. The sale starts on Tuesday. If you have thoughts on a yearling you wantto buy or have been left something you want to sell, please ring Rae on 07711 301095. If you'd be interested in a share large or small, now is also the time to let Rae know.

Indian Valley gains confidence giving win

Indian Valley won again today at Pontefract, easing away readily from inferior rivals under Silvestre de Sousa. While she has not fulfilled the hopes we all had for her at the start of the year she has proved herself game and consistent; and of course she still has the lovely pedigree and good looks that made us buy her in the first place. She goes to the horses in training sales later in the month. A second win for Triple R Racing.

Fabulous Grade 1 win for Serious Attittude

Derek Willis and Rae Guest today equalled their biggest win as owners when their own Serious Attitude ran away from an international field in the Grade 1 Nearctic Stakes at Woodbine in Canada. Settled towards the rear of the field by big day jockey Garrett Gomez from a poor draw in 10, she was always travelling and the jockey reported that he never had any doubts about the outcome. She eventually ran away from the rest of the field to win by a widening two lengths. This really was a case of the plan coming together as she is to ship next to Lexington where she will be sold in Fasig Tipton's select sale on 7 November. It will be a sad day to see her sold, but fantastic that her career with us will end on a well deserved high. Sam Davis did a great job looking after her while in Canada and Woodbine have done a great job in looking after all the connections and everyone concerned and are a credit to their country. It's been a great day. Slightly worryingly for the rest of us, Derek plans to celebrate all night!
