Two for two

Midnightly had another cracking run last night at Chelmsford in the last race of the evening. From a poor draw, she was like a bullet out of the stalls and ridden at speed to take an early lead. Martin Harley gave her a great run maintaining her hard won advantage right to the winning post; holding off the challenger. This little filly is on great form and her last two outings have shown she has that all important fighting spirit.  


It's a whiteout in Newmarket

Not even the snow could stop our team of dedicated staff getting the horses out today. Horses are a 24/7 job so, despite the severe weather, the staff at Chestnut Tree Stables braved the conditions and managed to get the yard exercised this morning. Well done team!!




Midnightly back on top

Midnightly made a very convincing job of last nights race winning the Betway Sprint Handicap at Wolverhampton. She was quick out of the stalls to take the lead from the outset. She determinedly maintained her advantage throughout the race winning nicely with plenty in the tank at the finish. This tough little filly, owned and bred by Mr Chris Mills, appears to enjoy dominating from the start so Martin Harley did a great job giving her that opportunity. It's good to see her back in the winner's enclosure.

Bright and crisp

It was nippy again this morning but another bright and sunny day here in Newmarket. Rachel was out with her camera taking some shots of the 2 year olds enjoying the sunshine. No SAD here!








Top rating in Team Champion Awards

We were delighted to find out just before Christmas that we had been awarded the top rating of 3 Stars in the inaugural Lycetts Team Champions Award. 

Participating in the award has made us realise that we do a lot right to ensure a positive and safe environment for our staff. It has also helped us see what we could introduce to improve our practices even more. 

Following the award, the organisers shared Best Practice activities from many different yards which gives us all an opportunity to assess what we could do better.
