Continuing The Streak

LINENHALL

We were thrilled to see LINENHALL put his head in front on the first time of asking over Timber in 2m6f Maiden at Stratford. He was always a horse we liked a lot last year but he just didn’t seem to have the extra gear needed to win one. He is a lovely big Chasing type for the future and jumping was always going to be his game. He made all and, although he was green in front to start with, he warmed to his task nicely and jumped almost impeccably. What we were most pleased about was how he knuckled down when the well-backed Alan King horse joined him at the last but he was soon on top again to win by a length. The track was sharp enough for him but over 2m6f we just got away with it. We will look to run him under a penalty in a month or so and then we can make a plan for the remainder of the season from there. I would imagine he will be running over 3 miles by the end of the season.

CARLOS DU FRUITIER

It was another good performance from CARLOS DU FRUITIER to win the 2m3f Novice Hurdle at Wetherby. It was a race that looked to have a few decent types in it but not a lot of strength in depth. This was very much apparent with the first two drawing well clear in the closing stages. He showed plenty of guts and determination to win by a length from 'Jammin Masters', who is a well-regarded horse of Warren Greatrex. CARLOS jumped very well throughout and was just a bit tight at the last which meant he had to pull out all the stops. He quite clearly had come on for his run at Huntingdon when he was second and is a horse Daryl likes a lot. We will look for a race in 5 weeks or so and you may see him step up in grade rather than carry a penalty as he is not the biggest. It certainly has a very jolly group of owners who made themselves heard on the track and I hope their heads are not too sore this morning!!

RACING CLUB RUNNERS

It is another exciting week ahead for the racing club. BARDISTA looks like he will run at Exeter on Tuesday. He is a horse that has turned inside out since joining us and his work has got better and better. He is a fabulous jumper and his future is defiantly over fences but I believe he will be up to running very nicely over hurdles as well. UNCLE PERCY is back working away really well and is not far away from his next run at Huntingdon in the middle of the month. These are two cracking horses that I am sure will be visiting the winner's enclosure this season. There are still some shares left in this very exciting Racing Club and it is a fantastic way to get into racehorse ownership and experience the thrill of being an owner.
