I popped down to see Jamie Snowden early yesterday morning and watched our un-beaten mare Rhythm Star jump 9 hurdles with jockey Brendan Powell in the saddle.
All went well, Brendan is pleased with her schooling and were hoping Star will be ready for hurdle debut & first run of the season in late October / early November.
Our other mare that we recently purchased called Dino Mite is now in full training also with Jamie. We gave Dino Mite a month’s turn out after the sales to ensure she was well rested and in a good frame of mind, this half sister to Cockney Sparrow looked in tremendous condition and has settled in well at her new home.
Dino Mite looks a really exciting prospect, she was well above average on the flat and with her national hunt blood lines in the family her owners have a lot to look forward to. We hope our filly will be ready to run in the early part of December.
Jamie Snowden has purchased some nice horses over the summer and moved on quite a few that didn’t make the grade, with luck I’m sure the yard will have a very good season and is worth keeping a close eye on.
I’ve not had chance to look at the racing this week with been away for a couple of days and going through Newmarket sales catalogue. However with the going changing to soft for the first time in six months from what I’ve seen winners have been hard to find.
With the Cesarewitch taking place at the weekend and plenty of other action hopefully something will come to light over the weekend.
