Rowe Park reaches £100000
Rowe Park took his winnings past the £100 000 mark when he finished a close 4th in a class 1 race over 6 furlongs at Lingfield (20/11/2010). This was a great achievement for the stable as Linda and Paul purchased him for just 1200 guineas.
Hereditary won an eventful conditional jockey’s handicap hurdle at Plumpton (24/4/2011). Ridden by Peter Hatton, he travelled at the back of the five runner field but well in touch until losing a little ground going out on the final circuit. Then the race changed dramatically as the favourite, who was leading, crashed out at the flight at the start of the back straight almost knocking Hereditary over. This left him nearly 10 lengths adrift but he slowly worked his way back in touch, moving into third around the home turn. He then ran on well up the hill, catching and overtaking the leader after the last to run out the three quarter length winner.
She’s Humble notched up her second Plumpton win (28/3/2011) this year by taking a class 5 handicap chase under top weight over 2 miles and a furlong. Ridden by Richard Johnson she jumped well and she tracked early leader, Bid Art, who also likes to front run. She went in front at the seventh fence but Bid Art retook the lead under pressure three out. She was still a length down, but Johnson had not got over serious, when Bid Art fell two out. From there she just had to be kept up to her work to run out the 20 length winner.
She’s Humble won her second steeplechase today (17/1/2011) at Plumpton, ridden by Andrew Thornton. They went straight into the lead and she jumped really well. The others, bar one, struggled to stay with her going out onto the final circuit and she held the runner up off up the home straight to win by a length and three quarters, with the third another twenty lengths behind. This was a first winner for owners, Valence Racing Too.
She’s Humble finished 3rd in a (class 4) 2 mile 1 furlong handicap chase at Plumpton (11/4/2011).

She stayed on up the home straight, taking third place after the final fence.
Roe Valley finished 3rd in a 1 mile 2 furlong maiden at Kempton (23/3/2011). Ridden by Ian Mongan he was held up at the rear this time and it seemed to help. He ran on strongly in the straight and nearly grabbed second, 5 and a half lengths behind the comfortable winner.
She’s Humble finished 2nd in a class 4 handicap chase at Plumpton (28/2/2011). On ground that was not really to her liking, Andrew Thornton gave her a sympathetic ride and, realising that she had no chance with the eventual winner, he made sure she enjoyed the race and was able to pass the rest of the field in turn as they faltered.
King Kieren followed up his 3rd placed run with a second place, again at Lingfield, over a mile and a half (25/2/2011). Ridden by Eddie Ahern he travelled in midfield until asked for an effort about three furlongs from home. He responded to being driven and ran on well only going down to the well fancied winner by two and a quarter lengths.
King Kieren had his first run on the all weather at Lingfield in a 1 mile 5 furlong maiden. (16/2/2011). Ridden by Ian Mongan he was dropped in at the rear of the 5 runner field. He moved up with half a mile to go and challenged for the lead before finding no extra entering the straight. He finished a very satisfactory 3rd, 8 lengths behind the winner but 4 lengths ahead of the 4th placed favourite.
