Hat-trick for Lady of the Lamp

Three for three at Newcastle as LADY OF THE LAMP won again last night. Luke Morris, who rode the filly to her first victory, was back on board. She obviously likes this track and put in another nice performance. 

Congratulations to owner/breeders Mrs Sonia Rogers and Mr Anthony Rogers from Airlie Stud. This is the first horse they have had trained by Rae and we look forward to a continued and fruitful relationship with them.

The Nightingale sings again

LADY OF THE LAMP got her second win yesterday at Newcastle in the Betway Sprint Apprentice Handicap with Sebastian Woods on board. He got her in a nice position early on, waiting until the final furlong to shake her up. The filly responded promptly, gaining ground and continuing strongly to the post. Sebastian, a former employee of Rae's, gave her a very professional ride and we are delighted to see him get another win (no. 7); his first on the all-weather.

Congratulations again to owner/breeders Mrs Sonia Roger and Mr Anthony Rogers of Airlie Stud for their homebred filly's second success.

A winning partnership

Silvestre de Sousa made it 3 out of 3 and cemented his partnership with Salt Whistle Bay at Nottingham yesterday in the Class 4 1m+ Handicap.

Having manoeuvred the colt into an early lead on the rail the horse defended his position well, digging deep to fend off the runner-up in a really good battle to the finish. Congratulations to Mr & Mrs John Worboys who jointly own this improving colt with Rae.


Yearling sales

The Tattersall Yearling Sales are nearly upon us and Rae will have his beady eye open for a good deal. As usual, he will be focusing on the fillies although we have had good results with the boys this year.

If you have any thoughts on a particular yearling you want to buy or would like Rae’s help picking something to put in training with us please give him a call on 07711 301095 or 01638 661508.

It’s worth remembering that Serious Attitude was bought for 7,500gns by Rae from Tattersalls Yearling Book 3 in 2007 and went on to win 5 times including two Group 1races, earning nearly £400,00 prize money before selling for $1.85 million at the Fasig-Tipton November sale in 2010.

We will also be looking at setting up another three-horse syndicate at a very affordable entry level. If you are interested in a share or part share, now is the time to let Rae know. We are also looking at single horse partnerships if that holds more appeal. Rae looks forward to your call.

Tattersalls 2017 October Yearling Sales:

Book 1 - 3rd - 5th October

Book 2 - 9th - 11th October

Book 3 - 12th - 14th October

A light at the end of the tunnel

A frustrating few weeks for the yard as rain has definitely hampered play!  Last week we had 17 entries and not a single runner due to soft going. This week however gained momentum with a few placed horses ahead of a very nice win at Newcastle last night in the Intergas Maiden Stakes. Our little ray of sunshine LADY OF THE LAMP did it nicely, tracking the leader from the start and putting it to bed in the last furlong. Home bred by owners Mrs Sonia Rogers and Mr Anthony Rogers at their Stud in Ireland she is by Invincible Spirit out of Lady Angola. This filly has always been a beautiful mover and has now shown her promise. Congratulations to Sonia and Anthony. We hope she is the first of a few more to be sent to us from these lovely owner breeders.
