Thorne Farm has a magnificent day at Hexham….

We had two runners at Hexham on Thursday and two brilliant winners, It was a great day and worth the long trip! Heart Of Kernow won the novice hurdle easily even though he was very green and inexperienced, he quickened up from two out to win by six lengths. This was only his second time on the course after one run last season, we gave him a long break and got him in early with the intention of winning races like this. Take A Break on the other hand was back on the track after a five hundred plus day absence, he jumped really well and was never in danger. It was a great effort by all the staff at Thorne Farm Racing to get him back in the winners enclosure after such a long absence, he’s had leg trouble and is a hard horse to get fit. Both of our impressive winners were ridden by the talented Sean Bowen, we had two very great wins! We continue to get the rest of the horses in shape and there are loads to look forward too so keep an eye on the blog for all the news and updates.

One of our exceptional winners, Heart Of Kernow ridden by Sean Bowen at Hexham.

Nachi Falls Impresses Again!!

Nachi falls ran another great race on Wednesday, he was very fast finishing second after having to make his own running which is not ideal, he got headed and fought back really well. He really is a remarkable little horse who doesn’t know how to run a bad race. Dharoos on the other hand was a little bit disappointing and could only finish fifth after having a bad run all through the race, he eventually got out and ran well up the straight. He’s better than that and might run again on the flat. There are no runners at the weekend but we’ve got some entries next week at Worcester. Robin Why Not is in the hands and heels hurdle, he ran disappointing last season but works well at home, he has got to be better than his bare form. Georgina Joy is having her first run and will need the experience. Heart Of Kernow and Take A Break are in Hexham on Thursday and could run if the ground is safe. We bought three horses at the Doncaster Sales on Wednesday, one is a half-brother to Big Orange, he is called Stormy Blues and was second in a maiden at Nottingham, he really looks the part. We also bought a horse with a big name called Mutoondresdashorse, a nice Colt who is a winner of a maiden this season at Newbury, we’ll have him gelded and take it from there. The third one is a nice mare by Kayf Tara called Tequila Secret, she is owned by Mr Steve Winfield and was placed in a bumper at Southwell and has a lovely pedigree.

Nothing much to report this week, I feel we should mention the Davy Russell incident, even though it’s boring everyone  by now. No matter what anyone says if the same thing happened to a claimer or apprentice they would have received a large fine or ban or both and be made an example of. What Davy did, didn’t affect the horse either way but it does look bad and there should be consequences. Racing should be seen in the same light as other equestrian sports and not be tarnished by incidents like this. The horses continue to get fitter and a few have really improved physically, we just need some rain. Patsy Oriel runs tomorrow at Newton abbot in the novice handicap chase, riding Patsy is Sean Bowen. He’s a lovely big horse but he’s also got a bit on the slow side so the trip should be ideal. Nachi Falls is entered for Southwell on Wednesday and will love the ground. On Thursday we have  entered Dharoos at Chelmsford on the flat, he’s been ready to run for a while over hurdles but we need some rain so we’ve decided to give him a run on the flat, he’s a nice sort and should go well.

We haven’t had any luck with any winners this week but they all ran well, with the exception of a couple. Nachi Falls wasn’t to impressed with Stratford but was staying on fourth and wasn’t beaten by far. Atlantic King ran well at Fontwell and is going the right way, we shall try him over further as he seems to appreciate a trip. Calin Du Brizais ran well after getting hampered turning in at Newton Abbot but seems better over fences, it was worth a try back over hurdles. We are very busy at the moment getting all the horses fit, when the ground comes soft we shall be ready to go. There are loads to run and we are really looking forward to seeing some of the better horses back in action again.
