Xtara and the trainer make the long journey to Kempton where Barry McHugh takes the ride …. that’s leaves the girls at home to man the ship in the snow The dream team having a walk and snif in the snow after Lances great run yesterday
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…..
PLEASE LOOK AT FACEBOOK FOR MORE REGULAR UPDATES !!!!
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
Well we are delighted to report that Vivernus got his head in front the 3rd time of asking from us. Andrew Mullen gave him a lovely ride and Big V loved the surface at Newcastle.
We also got 2 new yearling a Out Strip Colt and a Acclamation filly, very nice individuals with hopefully big futures.
Munfallet ran an other solid race to finish 4th on saturday at Ripon, he is now for sale and looks like he is soon going to be in that winners spot, so dont hesitate to give Adrain a call if you are interested in him. A lovely fun horse that can run reguarly would suit a syndicate to give them lots of fun.
Sir lancelott is still enjoying his holiday he has been blessed with the weather out all day and in all night what more could he ask for….
Scooby has been having a day out with his jockey he won the fancy dress at Scorton Feast winning a thorphy much to the delight of us here at the Ranch and numerous other rosettes for games ….
We have got our first two yearling and are both lovely individuals with hopefully big futures…
Swiss Spirirt Filly
Mia has been learning the jockey trade on Barrons Lad, he is perfect teacher and she will learn alot….
Also Mia attended Malton Open Day where they had a jockey relay show jumping competition her partner was Jason Hart he was a great sport as were all the jockey, they are a credit to racing
Xtara has had a change route for his winter campaign and is staying on at The Ranch, he has had a good 7 week break and will be aiming to run on the all weather before the end of the year and the rest up again for his 3yr old career.
Hafait Alain has had a few teething problems and will most likely not race until he is a 3yr old, he is now enjoying life and gaining a few pounds. 2019 will be his time to shine.
We have some lovely big back end 2yr olds wheter they as 2 or 3 yr olds, we will decide in time there is no rush with them but once we get the sign they are ready we will run(the horse will let us know)
We have had a few runners a long the way, we have not troubled the judge but we ahve been knocking onthe door. There is still time to get an other winner before the grass finishes, God whiling. But as first years go I reckon this has been a great one we have some lovely horse to look forward too so onwards and upwards.
Until next time x x x x
