Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog- Friday 5th October 2018


This week we have been relatively busy with runners. On Sunday Take A Break finished 2nd at Worcester in the ‘Local Parking Security Selling Hurdle’. He was partnered by our yard conditional jockey Tom Buckley who gave him a brilliant ride and was very unlucky to be beaten 3/4 of a length.

As well as being busy racing, at home on the yard has been as well. On Wednesday our three year olds took to the schooling ring and schooled over their first lot of hurdles. It was a great success and everyone of them showed a lot of promise and ability.

Today we have Mead Vale, Lamh Ar Lamh and Lady Mix running at Hexham. Danny Cook takes the ride on Mead vale and Tom Buckley takes the ride on both Lamh Ar Lamh and Lady Mix.
