Proud Sponsors

I am pleased to say the Adrian Nicholls Racing are proud sponsors of Thirsk Falcons U12 footy team…. We have done it to support the local community but also because I know my dad would have been very proud to see my name on the kids vests.

World Champion

Last weekend was one of the best ever Mia represented GB in Abu Dhabi in the Worlds first pony race, where she only went and won. To say we are bursting with pride is an understatement. The whole week was an experience they will never forget.

The Future of The Ranch

This afternoon we had a bit of fun with the trainer giving the girls a lesson in jockey style (its not only horses he trains). We believe in starting as mean to go on…Go fast go home

We were also very pleased with Racing Angel run at Newcastle where she ran a very creditable 4th only beaten less than a length so hopefully we will be troubling the judge very soon.

Little Update

All is well at The Ranch. Racing Angel runs tomorrow at Newcastle in the 8.45 Ben Robinson(5) take the ride on her. Sir Lancelott is having a mid season break to get him all freshened up for his winter campaign. The young team we have are coming on nicely and will no doubt tell us when they are ready.

Yard News

The weather has not been kind to us. We have a lot of surface water, but the team is coping very well and none of the horse have missed a day. Its all go with horses getting clipped ready for our winter campaign. The young horses are getting to grips with what we are asking which is very pleasing. The trainer is enjoying his night time reading the Horses In Training Catalogue, hopefully he can pick a few nice ones to join our team.

Saturday Morning at the Ranch

This morning the trainer was very busy he had 3 lots on the gallop followed by a few lots on the lunge


1st Lot Finmark 2yrold Filly this was her first strong canter she was a little shell shocked and a bit green.

2nd lot Callomania also her first strong canter since joining our team she was straight and honest.


3rd lot was a routine canter for Sir Lancelott after his run on wednesday, which he came out of fine and he will be running again soon


Sir Lancelott

LAnce is running today at Notthingham in the 5.25. He is running for his new owners The Golden Horse  Racing Club. Fingers crossed for a good run.

New Arrival….

Delighted to have  a new filly arrive at The Ranch. A lovely 3yr old called CALLOMANIA, hopefully she is going to be lucky for her owners Sultan Harib
