First winner for 2019

Minoria clocked our first win for 2019 yesterday at Lingfield in the Novice Median Auction Stakes.

They went at a good pace and coming off the last bend she was in a nice position to make steady progress to win by half a length.

This is only her second run, so at 4 years old, owner/breeders Chris Mills' patience has paid off. Congratulations!


Retired and enjoying a quiet life

This is Mousehole, now in his 27th year and enjoying a pick of grass at home. He was trained by Rae from 1994 to 2002 and won 12 races during that time.

Our old Travelling Head Lad (now part time), Andrew Bubb, has had him since he retired in 2002 and sent this picture to us yesterday. It is lovely to see these horses enjoying their retirement after such a productive career. 


End of year results

We are delighted to announce our end of year results with 20 winners from 30 horses in 2018. We also had 42 placed; 14 seconds, 9 thirds and 19 fourth places. Our multiple winners in 2018 included:

  • Kachumba (4 wins)
  • Dame Nellie (4 wins)
  • Show Stealer (2 wins)
  • Midnightly (2 wins)
  • Alaskan Bay (2 wins)

We look forward to an even more successful 2019 with some exciting existing and new young prospects.

Consistent and reliable

Alaskan Bay got her second win yesterday at Wolverhampton. She's a little fighter and likes this track.

This pocket sized filly hasn't been out of the top 4 for the last 6 months so the owners thought it might be a good time to sell. Unfortunately, she didn't attract enough interest at the December Mare sales so Rae made a great decision and bought her back. She has rewarded him well hasn't she? 





It's Christmas!

... and the Christmas jumpers are out!
