Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing

Friday 13th September 2019

Repetito and Le Musee have been flying the flag for us in recent weeks.

Repetito won at Newton Abbot very impressively and will probably go for a valuable juvenile at Market Rasen at the end of the month.

Last Monday Le Musee won the big race of the day at Perth by twelve lengths and could go back there in a couple of weeks for a similar race, they are both nice horses and hopefully will keep improving.

Farmers Boy ran a blinder at Uttoxeter to finish second on Wednesday, ridden by Kieren Buckley.

Mead Vale ran in the same race ridden by Tom Buckley but he got brought down at the second hurdle, the horse was fine but Tom’s collar bone got broken in the process so that put a bit of a damper on things, he’ll be out of action for a couple of weeks but he’ll bounce back.

The open day was a great success with over one hundred people visiting the yard to see the horses and the improvements that have been made, it’s all systems go from now on and here’s hoping we can continue our good start to the season.
