As often happens in this game you will have a period where luck plays a major part in the results,

Pearl Royale made a terrible mistake with a circuit to go and then fell at the next fence, it’s the first time she’s put a foot wrong and she paid for it. Pearl Royal is a bit stiff and sore but nothing serious and hopefully she’ll be back soon. Le Musee nearly sprang a surprise at Wincanton when he was a fast finishing second on his first run over hurdles, Tom Cannon rode him and was very impressed, he’ll be out again in a couple of weeks. On the point to point scene Double Captain won at Wadebridge with Naomi Simms on board, it was a great result as he’s been very consistent all season, they both deserve it. Its’s going to be a Fairly quiet week with Rejaah running Wednesday at Ludlow, then we have Level Of Intensity running on Friday at Kempton and then Alminar and Farmer Boy at Exeter on Sunday.

The horses continue to run superbly…

Lady Mix and Ouro Branco both ran well at Doncaster on Friday and Saturday also Camron  De Chaillac won on Sunday at Sedgefield, he was well ridden by Sean Houlihan and made all the running for another success. Camron De Chaillac is entered for Taunton on Sunday and if he’s ok he’ll run again. We also had some pointers running at the weekend at Chipley park, Bellini Dubreau was third in the maiden and ran well for a very long way, he should win one before the ground changes as he wants it soft. Brave Vic ran in the novice riders race and gave Tom Buckley his first ride in public, they both had a good school round as required, it was ideal as it was Toms first ride and the horse had not ran for three years. We have quite a few horses entered this week, firstly we have Le Musee entered at Wincanton on Thursday, he’s a nice horse by Galileo and is having his first run over hurdles. We then have Sin Sin entered at Catterick on Friday, Then the mighty Pearl Royale at Wetherby on Saturday and finally On Sunday at Taunton we’ve entered Camron De Challiac, Take A Break and Sapphire Noire so it’s going to be a very busy week ahead.

Speredek ran a fantastic race to finish second to one of the best horses of recent times!

Speredek tried hard as always and was beaten by seven lengths by a multiple grade one winner. Speredek was well ridden by Sean Bowen and ran an excellent race as usual, for a minute they looked like they were going to nick it. Speredek might go back to Ascot in February for the Betfair Ascot chase, it was a career best performance and he seems to keep on improving so let’s keep hoping. A quick word on staffing as the topic was mentioned on the very excellent Luck on Sunday, the Stable staff love their horses and that’s why they work in racing. Compared to other equine sports racing staff get looked after much better than most, yes they work long hours and early mornings etc but they get well paid for it, there also a massive thrill attached to looking after a good horse or even a bad one that eventually wins, you don’t get that in Tesco. I bet there’s a very high percentage of staff that have left racing only to come back again, I for one can name loads that have done that and most yards will cater for young mums by letting them work the hours that suit them. What other industry does that? From our point of view staff want to have as normal a life as everyone and that’s why everyone at Thorne Farm works a five and a half days week. It could be called ground breaking but no other yard in England does it and it can be done with a little organisation. Old school methods are not always the best and some trainers would be horrified at the thought but somethings have got to change. It’s going to be a quiet enough week with only Pearl Royal entered for Exeter on Wednesday and Lady Mix entered at Doncaster on Friday.

Camron De Chaillac is running today at Plumpton, he has a favourites chance as he won last time out. He won’t mind the trip and the softer the ground the better. We have two entries for Ludlow on Thursday they are Sin Sin and Deauville Crystal, then on Saturday we have the stable star Speredek in the big race at Ascot. It’s a tall order but he’s earned the right to have a cut at a big prize, he’s in great heart at home and won’t mind the ground whatever it turns out to be. We have a new addition to the string, a lovely filly by the up and coming sire Arkadio, she really looks the part and should be on the track in the spring time.
