Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog- Friday 21st September 2018

Share

This week we have been relatively quiet with runners due to the ground not being suitable for some of the horses we would like to run. At home things are very much the opposite. We have currently got the most amount of horses we have ever had in which we are absolutely delighted with. Our three year- olds that have recently been broken in are coming along nicely having been up the gallop and cantering around our sand ring, they are all showing improvement each day.

Today Calin Du Brizais ran another brilliant race at Newton Abbot, partnered by his usual jockey Kieren Buckley who is also our yard amateur the pair finished 3rd only beaten 1 length.

At the moment we currently have just the two entries at Uttoxeter on Sunday, which include Lamh Ar Lamh and Mead Vale. This will be Mead Vale’s first run back this season so hopefully he will show that he learnt a lot from the previous.


Upcoming Entries 

Mead Vale – Uttoxeter on Sunday

Lamh Ar Lamh- Uttoxeter on Sunday

We started the week off at Newton Abbot on Monday with a winner. Atlantic Grey won the ‘Newton Abbot Racecourse on Facebook Selling Hurdle’ by an impressive 4 lengths. This was his first run for the yard after his move from Nigel Twiston- Davies.

On Tuesday Lamh Ar Lamh ran at Worcester in a Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle. Partnered by Tom Buckley she ran another brilliant race to finish 4th. She has now learnt to settle in her races and this will benefit her massively.

We have 3 entries so far next week which includes Mead Vale and Heart of Kernow making there way up to Hexham and Lord Ballim going to Worcester. Heart of Kernow won twice at Hexham last year out of 2 runs so fingers crossed he can produce something similar again.

 


Upcoming Entries

Heart Of Kernow – Monday at Hexham

Mead Vale – Monday at Hexham

Lord Ballim – Monday at Worcester

We have had a busy & exciting week culminating with our Nigel Hawke Racing Club open evening on Saturday 1st September & our Open day for invited guests on the Sunday 2nd September.
It was a lovely warm late summer evening with 40 members of the club who saw their Racing Club horses paraded & Nigel commentating on each individual horse. The club horses for this season are:
Alloneamongstamillion
Atlantic King
Ballymagroaty Boy
Georgina joy
Mead vale
It is not too late to join the racing club any enquiries give Steve Winfield a call on 07739437574.

On Sunday we held our Thorne Farm Racing Open day. The weather enabled the six paraded horses to gleam in the sunshine and over 100 invited guests saw Speredek, Tanrudy, Verbitude, Pearl Royale, Rejaah and Deauville Crystal. Speredek particularly enjoyed all the photos & attention. Nigel gave a full commentary on each horse & explained about the races that they will be aimed for. Speredek will be aimed for the Haldon Gold Cup in November at Exeter. Verbitude will go Juvenile hurdling in October/ November. Pearl Royale will hopefully go to Carlisle in November for a Grade 2 mares chase and Tanrudy will possibly go for a 3m hurdle and then onto novice chasing.

We also showed off a small elite selection of young horses for sale from France & Ireland to a very captive audience. For further information on these horses please visit our website or give Nigel a call on 07769 295839

On Tuesday Lamh Ar Lamh went to Stratford for the ‘Bet at Racinguk.com Mare’s Handicap Hurdle’. We were absolutely delighted with her performance finishing 3rd. Now that she has learnt to settle she should pick up a race or two at this time of year.
We have a very busy week ahead of us with lots of entries coming up.

Take a Break – Saturday at Stratford

Nachi Falls – Sunday at Fontwell

This week we have been busy preparing for the weekend, with the racing club open evening being held on Saturday evening and the open day on Sunday.

We are really looking forward to seeing everybody and would be great to meet any potential new owners or members to our racing club. The weather forecast is looking good for both events, so we hope to parade a few of the horses in the sunshine for everybody to see. The horses that we will be parading include Speredek, Pearl Royale, Tanrudy, Verbitude, Rejaah and Deauville Crystal. If you would like to see any other horses parade do not hesitate to ask Nigel or Eddie Buckley on the day. With the British weather being as unpredictable as it can be, we do have a big marquee up. If you would like to join us for either our racing club evening or open day, please contact Nigel on 07769 29583. On arrival you will all receive a complimentary programme which holds information on all of our horses in training at Thorne Farm Racing.
