Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing

Blog –

Friday 12th April 2019

Point n Shoot hacked up at Sedgefield last week, he is a bit of an enigma and in many ways a strange horse.

He can be quite miserable in the box and is happiest left alone most of the time but when he wins he always wins easily.

At Sedgefield he demolished basically the same field that he could only finish third to the previous time on ground that was probably too fast as well.

He’s now won three races since a life threatening injury happened a few years back so it’s a big thanks to the staff at Thorne Farm who nursed him back to full health and then to the winners enclosure. Ridden by our conditional Tom Buckley who gets on really well with him having had his first win on him at Exeter last year.

Pomme has had a colt foal by Sageburg and is visiting Getaway next. Pomme was a very good but unlucky on the track but it looks like the bad luck is over as the foal is a cracker so look out for him in a few years as he could be a bit special.
