Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing

Blog –

Friday 12th July 2019

It’s been a great couple of weeks since the last blog,

Flints Legacy won after promising to do so many times, she’s been hard to train to say the least. Over the last four seasons she’s only run ten times and had various problems on the way but last week she battled hard to win over fences at Cartmel and hopefully can build on that now, incidentally that was our first winner at Cartmel.

It was a great performance by the team to get her there and very satisfying to finally see her win.

Most of the horses that were having a summer break are back in now and they look great there’s plenty of nice new horses to look forward to and also the old favourites like Speredek and Pearl Royal are back in again.

It’s great to have a break but better to get busy again with some nice horses to run there’s a real buzz about the yard.
