Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog- Friday 17th August 2018

Share

This week has been relatively quiet on the runner’s side of things for Thorne Farm, but it certainly isn’t that way at home on the yard. With all the horses back into work now the team are extremely busy with riding out and taking care of them all.
Due to a couple of days with heavy rain, on Wednesday we were able to school a few of the horses out on the grass over hurdles. Its great to get them out on the grass as they can properly stretch out and it would be the nearest thing to being in a race.

On Saturday 1st September at 6pm Nigel Hawke Thorne Farm Racing Club is holding an open evening for existing members and potential members. The racing club is a great way to get involved in racehorse ownership at a very reasonable cost. If you think that you might be interested, please contact Nigel Hawke on 07769 295839.

On Sunday 2nd September Thorne Farm will be hosting its annual open day. It is invitation only but if you would be interested in coming and also have an interest in buying into our racehorses or having a horse in training with Nigel then please do not hesitate to contact Nigel on 07769 295839.

On Tuesday Lord Ballim travelled to Worcester for the ‘Angel Hotel Pershore Pensham Handicap Hurdle’. Kieren Buckley our yard amateur partnered Lord Ballim to finish 2nd with only ½ a length between the winner and himself. Nigel says “Kieren gave Lord Ballim a lovely ride and settled him extremely well. It was great to see he saw the trip out and we are sure to have plenty more fun with him”.

(Lord Ballim and Katie Bennett)

Not only where we busy on Tuesday with runners we also brought in more horses from the field ready to start their training. This included a lovely 3yr old Kapgarde filly who looks to be a very exciting prospect.

Next week is looking rather busy for us as we have plenty of entries across the weekend and the week. On Sunday we have Mutoondresdashorse, Take a Break and Calin Du Brizais all entered at Market Rasen and on Monday we have The Boola Bee and Georgina Joy entered at Newton Abbot.

Friday 27th July 2018

Although not having any runners this week, the team at Thorne Farm have still been extremely busy. Most of the horses are all back in work now but we still have the last lot to bring in next week. They will have shoes put back on and start their road walking for a few weeks. The horses that came in on the 1st July, which included our yard superstar Speredek and Pearl Royale are nearly at the end of their walking period. Next week is when they will start to canter again.

It is always a nice feeling when the horses start cantering again as you know it wont be too long before the season is in full swing. Not only are we looking forward to seeing how our horses have come on from last season, we also have a lovely collection of exciting new prospects.

Next week we have 2 entries at Worcester on Tuesday, with Lord Ballim and Nachi Falls both entered in the ‘Angel Hotel Pensham Handicap Hurdle’. We also have the 1 entry on Thursday at Stratford with Petergate in the ‘ Priority SMS Selling Hurdle’.

 


Upcoming Entries

Lord Ballim – Tuesday at Worcester

Nachi Falls – Tuesday at Worcester

Petergate – Thursday at Stratford
