New Life In The Yard

A new colt foal was born on Wednesday at the yard.  Nicknamed "Harley" because he kicked as if he was starting a motor-bike, he is out of proud mum, Hopeshedoes, by Watar.

Good For A Break

It's A Sheila Thing came back after a winter break and ran a very encouraging race on the turf at Lingfield today.  In the mile and a quarter contest she was held up near the rear all the way to the home straight 3 furlongs from home.  She was then asked to move forward and she responded moving through the field to get into second place near the line.  However she was pipped on the line for this place by another horse with similar tactics and finished a pleasing 3rd at the rewarding each way odds of 66/1.
It's A Sheila Thing (pink cap) moves up in the final furlong.

Contentment In Retirement

With the sun on their backs, Red Anchor (retired last week) and Rowe Park (retired a couple of years ago) enjoy a quiet morning's grazing in one of the paddocks.
