Rinty Maginty ready to go when racing resumes

Rinty Maginty is in really good form and Henry is looking forward to getting him started again as soon as racing resumes.

We don’t yet know where the racing will be and there isn’t a programme book for the summer, so we’ll have to wait to see how things develop.

Please click on the video to the right to see him in action on the gallops in Newmarket this morning.

Sea Willow is also going nicely and she is also being prepared for a racecourse return in the coming weeks.  Fourth on two of her three outings in handicap company before struggling on fibresand on her latest outing, hopefully she can find a race or two this summer.

Arc weekend competition won!

I am delighted that so many of you have been taking part in the daily competitions and many congratulations to Geoff Barrow, who last night won the prize of a trip to Paris for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in October!

There will be a short break in the competitions until next Monday, 4th May and they will then continue again until racing resumes over here.

Glance Back enjoying a well-earned holiday

We enjoyed another tremendous season with Glance Back, who has given us all so much fun and excitement in the past few seasons.

He really is a wonderful horse to be involved with and though we were limited to five starts this season, there were two wins to celebrate amongst them, including a career-best effort when scoring by 10 lengths on his latest outing at Uttoxeter just six weeks ago…it certainly feels a lot longer!

Emma and her team have done a brilliant job with him and I am looking forward to him returning to training later this summer, with a view to starting back in October.

Sir Canford out in the paddocks

It was great to see Sir Canford show such promise in his first couple of starts over hurdles at the turn of the year, finishing runner-up on his debut over timber at Newbury before a good fourth in a highly competitive juvenile contest at Kempton Park on his latest outing in January.

There is still unfinished business on the flat – he definitely didn’t get the rub of the green on his most recent few runs in that sphere – but with the flat programme likely to be very compressed in the coming months, I am quite keen to start him back over hurdles.  He is likely to be ready in late July (we’ll bring him back into training at the beginning of June) and providing we can get some safe jumping ground, I’m very hopeful there is a novice hurdle or two with his name on it!
