Speredek strikes gold at Sandown…

We had a very successful weekend thanks to Speredek winning the feature race at Sandown on Saturday. He went off as hot favourite and after going nearly flat out with Gino Trail for most of the race, he asserted after the second to last lap and strode clear to win it easily in the end. Obviously we were all ecstatic and it means so much to a small yard to have a horse like Speredek, he puts other horses to shame because he’s so genuine and tough. On Sunday we had Samingarry and Double Captain running at Wadebridge and they both finished third, both running very respectable races. On the same card our ex inmate My King won the maiden ridden by stable amateur Kieren Buckley and trained by another Thorne Farm employee Joe Tickle, so a great weekend was had by all. The Entries this week at Taunton on Tuesday are Rejaah, Farmer Boy, Sir Mix and Alminar then on Wednesday we have Sin Sin at Ludlow, they are all possible runners at the moment.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!

We’ve had a very Merry Christmas here at Thorne Farm thanks to Pearl Royal and Camron De Chaillac. Firstly Pearl Royal won on Boxing Day and was very impressive, It was her first run over fences and she dominated and outclassed her opponents in what looked a very competitive race. Hopefully she’ll keep on improving and will step up a bit more next time. Camron De Chaillac also ran on Boxing Day, finishing a respectable third and we then decided to run him again on Saturday at Taunton with the inspired addition of a visor, he battled on and won. Camron is a character to say the least and it’s thanks to his lass Katie Bennett that he’s actually won a race as he’s a real handful at home, she rides him every day and she has always said he will win. Next weeks entries are Lady Mix at Lingfield on Friday, Then on Saturday we have Speredek, Level Of Intensity and possibly Lord Ballim at Sandown also we have a nice young horse called Alminar at Chepstow racing.

We had a busy Sunday….

Unusually for us we had three runners at Wadebridge point to point on Sunday, Samingarry ran in the novice riders race and finished really well snatching third close to home. Samingarry was well ridden by Kieren Buckley and seemed to really enjoy the drop in class, he will probably go back there again for the next meeting. Double Captain ran next in the restricted race and also finished third, he was ridden by Naomi Simms who is the daughter of the very much underrated ex jockey Martin Simms who is also the owner. Naomi and Double Captain gelled really well and will be winning before long. Bellini Dubreau ran in the maiden and was running a big race when unseating his rider with a circuit to go, it’s a shame when that happens because your always thinking what if but that’s racing its full of what ifs, horse and jockey were alright and that’s the main thing. This week’s entries are Georgina Joy at Taunton, she’s learning and improving all the time. Friday at Doncaster we have Lady Mix, Farmer Lad and Sir Mix all ground dependant.

We have a new filly from Ireland that should strengthen our team, she’s called Sin Sin and she’s a three year old by the same sire as Level Of Intensity Intense Focus. She’s only run seven times and been placed four times so she’s lightly raced and we’ve already got her popping over poles in the school, she seem a very hardy type and could run in the new year. Greybougg ran a cracker on Saturday at Newbury and he could step up in trip next time as he was staying on again at the line, he’s a tough horse who jumps really well and loves to make the running. Point N Shoot will run at Lingfield on Tuesday after unseating at the first last week, it was just bad luck and he has since schooled over eight fences very well so there seems to be no ill effects. Level Of Intensity is entered for Market Rasen on Thursday and Ballymagroarty Boy is entered for Exeter on Friday. We will possibly have Blue Sire entered for Chepstow on Saturday, he’s a really nice horse but very fragile having not run for a year and a half so it will be nice to see him back on the track.
