Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing

Blog –

Friday 2nd August 2019

Malina Ocarina was very unlucky on Tuesday at Worcester.

She was running a big race and going like a winner when she tipped up at the second last.

A big shame because that would have been our first homebred winner but her day will come and she’s fine afterwards.

Everybody is concerned about the impact Brexit is going to have on the bloodstock industry and seeing as we access nearly all our horses from France and Ireland and we use the best Irish stallions for our brood mares there’s every reason to be at the least apprehensive as to what’s going to happen, hopefully Bojo as he’s known now will sort it out to suit everyone but it just seems to be an almighty mess.
