They say horses either love or hate Southwell a bit like Marmite. Well it turns out Land of Winter is a bit of a fan. Running in the last race of the evening, Land of Winter made light of an up in trip distance despite being caught on the outside for much of the race. Then just over a furlong out he started to leave the rest of the field in his wake winning by 11 lengths.

He's entered up next week, again at Southall.  Lets hope he can repeat the performance ahead of the Tattersalls Autumn HIT sales next month. 


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!
