Sir Lancelot

A great run from Lance today at Wolverhampton he was just collared close home to finish 3rd. He is so tough and consistent, a real yard favourite.


Due to a very busy time over the past few months the website has been neglected but that is all to change from next week on there will be weekly updates, but in the mean time our facebook back keeps you right up to speed ….


By for now


We have had a busy time hear at The Ranch 8 new arrivals broken in and riding away while the runners are keeping the flag flying Vivernus(15 Nov @ Kempton 6th and then 30 Nov Southwell 3rd), Sir Lancelott(15 Nov Kempton 2nd, 28 Nov Newcastle 5th, 5 Dec Newcastle 3rd), Xtara( 15 Nov  Southwell 7th) all running well.

We have been very busy with our empire growing with some lovely horses and great owners. 2019 is looking very exciting with a grand bunch of 2 year olds and some big strong 3 year olds.

I will update with some photos in the next few days…..



A couple of winners…..

October has been a good month to us here at the Ranch with Sfumato winning at Catterick on the 9th under a nicely timed ride by Andrew Mullen. Delighted for connections who are great friends with our Head lad & head lass Ben and Sue, he really was a special winner.

The end of the month brought Vivernus back into ther winners circle in the number 1 spot, which now makes him King of the Ranch with two wins under his rug lol. Hopefully he will keep going the way he is and the winter might become very exciting……

Looking forwar to November it sees the return of Xtara who has enjoyed a little down time and will hopefully enjoy the all weather season. Also an unraced two year called Gate City is set to make his debut he is a horse full of character and is extremely laid back so might take a few runs for the penny to drop. Also our stable star Sir Lancelott is going to makong an appearance with an all weatehr campaign mapped out for him, looks like our saturday nights are mapped out Wolves here we come lol
