Another successful trip to Perth this week with four runners up there resulting in one winner two seconds and one pulled up.

Guardia Top won the juvenile hurdle on Thursday in great style, ridden by Sean Bowen she’s a very game and genuine filly, she jumped brilliantly and made all to win by five lengths in heavy ground.

Farmer Boy was just denied on the line by a head on the Wednesday and The Boole Bee ran a great race over a trip probably short of her best to finish second after returning from a long break.

Thorne Farm is in full swing now and we have loads of entries coming up, the horses are running well and Guardia Top was our eight winner of the current season.

All our staff at Thorne Farm are working hard to keep the show on the road so it’s full steam ahead with lots to look forward too.

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.

The horses are running really well at the moment and we’ve had loads of placed runners but more encouragingly to first time out horses are going to the races and really knowing there job.

There’s nothing worse than a badly behaved horse first time out and this is usually a reflection on the trainer.

As a rule virtually all the big successful yards horses behave very well first time out this is down to proper schooling and training at home on the gallops.

Nearly all of our horses are back after the summer break and have just started steady canters on the gallop, most have done very well and there seems to be plenty to look forward to.

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.
