We have a very busy week coming up…

Both horses that raced this week ran good races, Atlantic King was third at Bangor on Wednesday and only got beaten by five lengths, he struggled early on and then stayed on really well to grab third place. It was his first run over fences and hopefully he can build on that. Patsy Oriel ran on the same day at Newton Abbot and finished third in a novice hurdle staying on well at the finish. He will come on a lot for that run and will probably run over fences next time. This weekend we have runners at Market Rasen, Pomme runs in the novice hurdle and is in great form after winning there last time, Brigid Jo is in the same race, she ran at Uttoxeter last time and was very green so she needs to improve this time. At Newton abbot next Tuesday we’ve entered Calin du Brizas and Buffalo Sabre, Calin is back over hurdles where he is well in compared to his rating over fences, he also loves the track and the trip so we’re hopeful of a good run. Buffalo is in the conditional chase and has been going well but has something to prove. Thursday we have a nice horse called Dharoos entered for Worcester and as long as the ground is safe he should run. Thursday stable star Nachi Falls will be entered for Stratford in a novice chase and Atlantic King entered for Fontwell so after a quiet time we could have a busy week next week.

It has been a quiet week here at Thorne Farm with no jump racing but there’s lots going on in the yard. All of the horses are back in and are big and fat, it’s going to be a hard couple of months getting them back into shape, this consists of lots of walking and trotting then loads of steady work up the gallops. This is hard work for the horses and riders because the staff have been on holiday as well and they need to get into shape also. There a few races next week and we have entries at Newton Abbot one being Patsy Oriel who is a nice big horse from Ireland and is the winner of a point to point, he will probably need the run to sharpen him up. We also have Buffalo Sabre who is racing in the novice chase and is coming back after a wind op and finally we have Calin Du Brizais racing, he is in the same race as Buffalo Sabre and has got a great record around Newton Abbot. Atlantic King is entered at Bangor over fences, he jumps very well and hopefully it should bring about some improvement in him.

Beautiful views at Thorne Farm Racing

Nachi Falls brings home the gold!!

We had a fantastic result on Tuesday when the little star with a big heart, Nachi Falls won over fences for the first time at Worcester. Nachi was ridden by Sean Bowen, he travelled really well and won very easily by twelve lengths with some very decent horses behind him. One of his owners actually led him up(take a bow Jill Warren) and he is her first racehorse, what a great purchase he’s been, that was his fourth win from sixteen runs and earnings of £29,944 in win and place prize money. We will find a similar race for him in a couple of weeks’ time. In the meantime things are very busy in the yard, with plenty of horses to get fit for the coming season and we will be keeping everyone informed as the season progresses.

A big problem in the racing industry is staff shortages and for as long as I can remember it’s not been any different, if it wasn’t for the kids who go into racing who have a genuine love of horses it would be chaotic. These are our future head lads/girls jockeys and our future trainers but wages are not the answer. Most of the young people in racing have decent cars and the latest mobile phones, they also have a very good social life no different to any other teenagers starting out a working life. So much has been written about conditions of work and long hours etc. but it’s not like working down the mines, if a trainer is treating his staff badly then they can always  leave and if your any good you’ll have another job straight away. The point is that there’s no need for all this so called unpaid long hours and it’s mostly down to the management to make sure that everyone starts and finishes on time in a good working environment because that’s what puts people off more than anything. Brigid Jo runs on Sunday at Uttoxeter, she’s a nice mare by presenting and goes well at home, she will take a couple of runs to learn the game as she’s very green at home but she should have a good future. Nachi Falls runs next Tuesday at Worcester and is going up in trip, we think it should suit him, he schooled over fences this morning and is raring to go.
