“A Brace of Seconds”

Eight runners last week and whilst we failed to hit the back of the net we managed a brace of seconds, from either ends of the pricing spectrum!

First up was Giant who ran a cracker at huge odds at Kempton to finish second to a very useful filly of the Crisford’s who is now three from three.

Then on Saturday Run Boy Run was chinned at Chelmsford whilst favourite, having done everything he could to make his own task harder – a quick visit to the vets this week and we should see him in the winners enclosure very soon.

Another notable performance was once again from Sweet Harmony in the Boadicea Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday. Beaten only a couple of lengths and less than a length for the targeted Black Type, she’ll hopefully have her day soon before retiring to stud.

Off the track we were delighted to complete our fourteenth yearling purchase of the year acquiring Sweet Harmony’s half-sister by Ghaiyyath (pictured) at Tattersalls Book 3. She joins our team up at Adam Kirby’s Vicarage Farm, along with our ten homebreds forming our largest team of two year olds to date (twenty four) for next season.

This week we start on Monday at Yarmouth with course and distance winner Cross the Tracks before moving onto Kempton and Ivory Madonna. We are then heading to Longchamp France at the weekend in search of some Black Type with Naomi Lapaglia.

In the meantime I will be having some fun in coming up with some new names …… bring on the Class of 24!
