We had a good day at Newton Abbot on Wednesday, a winner and a second place from two runners. Black Anthem won his second race for us from just three starts. We claimed Black Anthem a few months ago for 6k, the horse has now paid for himself and is giving his owners some great fun. Competition bumped into one on the day, finishing 8 lengths clear of the third horse. Competition ran very well but ...

Jumps racing starts back today after a break, we have two runners. Newton Abbot & Worcester hold fixtures. The going is likely to be soft at both meetings and not quite what’s expected in the middle of August. Competition is our first runner in the 4:10 at Newton Abbot. Competition was pulled up last time out, losing his place quickly when seemingly going nicely. Nothing has come to lig...

We’ve had no runners this week with the National Hunt racing taking a break. Work doesn’t come to a halt though as the Goffs, Doncaster sales took place on Wednesday. We pleasingly secured the horse we wanted at the sale, Hugo ‘N Taz. I was very close to buying this horse last year in a private deal, but we couldn’t quite get it over the line. Hugo ‘N Taz is a long-d...

We have a runner at Market Rasen this afternoon, this is the last jumps meeting for over a week as a National Hunt break starts from tomorrow. Irska runs in the 1:50, Gavin Sheehan rides. Irska is a nice young horse for the future, he’s going to be a long-distance staying chaser on soft ground. Irska is bred for a trip, his relatives ran in the likes of the Welsh & Scottish National pl...

A nice comeback ride for William Buick yesterday on Lazuli who won with any amount in hand. I heard this was the horse William didn’t want to miss and planned on riding. Lazuli looks smart whilst it's great to see William back in the saddle, hopefully he can kick on now. I’ve stayed clear of Goodwood all week, it’s been a bogey meeting for me over the years. For what it’s...

We have a runner at Bangor this afternoon in the 2:10, Aldrin takes his chance with Tom Scudamore in the saddle. Aldrin or Buzz as we call him ran a nice race on seasonal debut last time out finishing 3rd. We were keen to run again before the National Hunt break kicks in from Monday, this race was the only real option. Aldrin runs over 2m3f furlong today, he’ll have to prove he gets this fa...

We have a runner this afternoon at Newton Abbot, Included runs in the 4:45. We had a few other options for Included but the midlands area was hit by 3 inches of rain in the past 48 hours. This has resulted in soft ground at other racecourses. Newton Abbot missed the rain, so we run here as Included needs quick ground. Included enjoys a big open galloping track so Newton Abbot might not suit, we&r...

Plenty of good flat racing today, Ascot, York, Chester & Newmarket all hold meetings. Most eyes will be on Ascot where Enable runs in the Group 1 King George And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at 3:40. Enable is one of the best mares’ we’ve ever seen, it would be great for racing if she can get her head in front again this afternoon. Crystal Ocean will ensure Enable doesn’t have thi...

We have two runners today at the feature jumps fixture of the summer. Our horses run in the two big races at Market Rasen, the Listed Summer Hurdle & the Listed Summer Plate. Having runner’s in each race is fantastic for the owners, it’s also a pretty big achievement for us. Competition goes first in the 2:10. Competition got hit hard for a having a very good novice season. His t...

Black Anthem won on debut for us and his owners at Stratford on Sunday. It was a good afternoon and nice to secure a winner after so many placed efforts of late. We claimed Black Anthem for just 6k and thought he was a horse that might have more to offer. Black Anthem does indeed look like a shrewd bit of business, hopefully he can win again during the summer months. Irksa makes his debut for us ...

We had another good night of racing at Ffos Las on Friday, our two horses finished 3rd and 2nd. So far this season, we’ve only had three horses finish out of the winners enclosure from fifteen starts. Stratford today with Black Anthem who makes his debut in the VRC colours at 5:55. We claimed Black Anthem for just £6000 after finishing 3rd in a selling race at Exeter. Black Anthem is...

We head to Ffos Las this evening with two runners, it’s set to be a fun night in the Welsh sun with Elvis playing after racing. I heard Elvis had been hiding out in Wales, staying in the Heartbreak Hotel apparently. Included runs in the first race followed by Trigger Nichol in the 6:40. Included ran well on chase debut finishing 2nd, the race perhaps fell to bits, but it was a fair effort....

We were really pleased with Aldrin's seasonal debut at Worcester on Monday. Aldrin finished 3rd in what was a decent little race. The run was Aldrin's best first time out effort for us, he normally doesn't run that great. David Pipe has done a super job with Aldrin. It's great to see the Pond House team is super form. We head to the Newmarket sales today for a couple of days. Plenty of work has g...

It’s the start of a busy week, we head to Worcester today with Aldrin who makes his seasonal debut in the 4:45. Aldrin has been a big success, winning 3 times from 9 starts. He’s a nice horse that holds a fair engine. Buzz as we call him, normally needs a couple of runs to achieve full fitness, he’s a big gross horse that requires a lot of work to get 100% fit. This is a compet...

A quite week for us with no runners. However, things will be very busy in the next ten days, five possible runners whilst we’ll be at the Newmarket sales from Wednesday onwards. Tomorrow, we’re at the yard of Jamie Snowden’s with the owners of Irska and Tinsmith. Both horses will work on the Lambourn gallops, afterwards a champagne breakfast awaits. It’s set to be lovely s...

We had a good afternoon at Ffos Las on Wednesday, Included & Velvet Revolution both ran super races on chase and hurdles debut. Both finished second. Included finished ahead of horses rated 15lb better than her and jumped great, whilst Velvet Revolution was beaten a length with 12 lengths back to the third placed horse. Velvet Revolution looks a nice recruit to hurdles, trainer Alastair Ralph...
