Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog- Friday 14th September 2018


We started the week off at Newton Abbot on Monday with a winner. Atlantic Grey won the ‘Newton Abbot Racecourse on Facebook Selling Hurdle’ by an impressive 4 lengths. This was his first run for the yard after his move from Nigel Twiston- Davies.

On Tuesday Lamh Ar Lamh ran at Worcester in a Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle. Partnered by Tom Buckley she ran another brilliant race to finish 4th. She has now learnt to settle in her races and this will benefit her massively.

We have 3 entries so far next week which includes Mead Vale and Heart of Kernow making there way up to Hexham and Lord Ballim going to Worcester. Heart of Kernow won twice at Hexham last year out of 2 runs so fingers crossed he can produce something similar again.


Upcoming Entries

Heart Of Kernow – Monday at Hexham

Mead Vale – Monday at Hexham

Lord Ballim – Monday at Worcester
