Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing

Another winner yesterday at Fontwell Park.

Point N Shoot won for the fourth time in his career ridden by our yard conditional Tom Buckley who has now won on him three times. He’s a real character at home, doesn’t like too much attention or anything different just wants to do his work and be left alone. Molly Legg led him up and it was also a great day for her leading up her first winner, she done a great job with the horse as he’s not the easiest, it all makes the difference on the day so all credit to her.

Le Musee ran a great race on the flat to just be denied by a neck at Carlisle on Tuesday, he’s a monkey but a lovable one and could go novice chasing next.

We we’re hoping to have some runners this weekend but the weather has put a stop to that, it’s been constant rain for three days and more forecast so we’ll just wait until things dry up a bit before we run any more.
