Nigel Hawke Thorne Farm Racing Blog- Friday 28th September 2018


Unfortunately we haven’t had many runners this week due to the ground not being suitable for the horses we would like to run, although we do have two runners today at Worcester that will appreciate the good ground that it is being called. Both Pirolo and Take A Break are entered in the ‘Local Parking Security Selling Hurdle’. Pirolo will be partnered by Tom Cannon and Take A Break will be partnered by our yard conditional jockey Tom Buckley.

Next week is Looking rather busy for us as we have three entries at Newton Abbot on Monday. This includes Mutoondresdashorse, Parelli Gold who will be making her first appearance over hurdles and Nikap who will be having her first run back this season after an impressive first run in a bumper at Chepstow to finish 2nd. We have just the one entry on Wednesday at Bangor-On-Dee which is Heart of Kernow in a novice handicap chase, this will be his first run over fences.
