Ad Vitam

There are already entries in place for Monday 3rd June for Vitty, at both Wolverhampton and Thirsk. It will be great to see him back on course. Although he has not been on the track since January, he has not been on a break we have just been unfortunate with entries, so he is fit and fresh. He has run well fresh before and I'm sure he's ready and waiting to remind us just what he can do! I'm looking forward to a great day at the races with him

Stamp Duty

 Stampie continues to progress well. He is enjoying his regular routine again now, but to be fair to him, throughout this next month we must come to a decision regards his future in racing. He will be stepped up with his work and we will see the affect that this has on his comfort and strength. Stampie owes us nothing and we must be 100% confident that he can enjoy his time in racing, and it is safe for him to continue..

Mountain of Stars

27May19 Cfd 6f 10/10 btn 16L Paddy Mathers

It was a long round trip to Chelmsford on the 27th andagain we have many questions regards the result of Jazz’s race. He seemed to jump well but was never able to travel well enough with the pack. He was getting encouragement throughout and Paddy did give us positive feedback regards his manner, as he genuinely felt he never gives up trying, just outpaced throughout. Paddy suggested we up in trip which has been mentioned before, so now this seems to be our next step. On a positive note, there is progression that we can pick out from this race as he was not beat as far as his previous run over 5f and also the competition that beat us at Chelmsford was certainly stronger than those we were up against previously at Newcastle. I think at this stage we will be happy to remove the headgear. We aim to see him travelling well within the park next time out

I'm pleased to be able to confirm this month that we have the addition of a new member in Newstart Partnership. Mountain of Stars will now be running in the partnership colours (% shares available!) And I am looking forward to being able to continue progressing with him. We took a detailed look through the catalogue for the Doncaster Spring Sale – 22nd / 23rd May. Although there were some possible options available, with the addition of Mountain of Stars to the partnership, we feel there will be better opportunities later in the summer sales, which will enable us to get the right horse to join us for the enjoyment of the partnership.

Thank you for your interest & support

Louie came back to the track with a great follow up from his 5th at Southwell, when he finished 2nd under a strong determined ride by Shane Kelly. Although he seemed to make hard work of it, our home research regarding his weight before and after the race, shows it certainly didn't take a lot out of him. He was finishing strongly over the line, coming away from the 3rd. The form from that race stacks up well with the winner going away and winning another 2 races, and also the horse that finished 4th went on and won one again. This gives us reassurance and it shows us he can still give us plenty to work with.

Although Louie had a draw that would suit him well, overall the outcome of Louie’s race at Chelmsford on the 27th was disappointing, following from his 2nd at Southwell just a few weeks earlier. Sometimes we may never really know the reasons why we get the results we do, and we can ask many questions regarding track, trip and surface etc. What we can hope for is to get him back on a track where we have seen his previous good form and enjoy watching him bounce back to better days.
