Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 6 May 2016
The summer is upon us at last and we have started to turn out some of the Thorne Farm horses that are finished until the autumn.
There is lots of space and grass here on Thorne Farm so we can monitor the horses when they are out. Some horses get too heavy and they need to be a little bit restricted as too how much weight they put on.
A horse like Samingarry for example could easily put on eighty to one hundred kilos and all that has to be got off before he gets to the racecourse. On the other hand some horses don’t thrive out at grass at all and can come in looking terrible so we keep a good eye on every horse and make adjustments as to how there doing.
Rejaah runs at Warwick on Saturday in a fillies handicap, it’s quite a valuable race for this time of the year and she goes there in great form having won her last two runs. This will be her biggest test to date but she’s very progressive and we think she’s up to the task.
My King could also run in the novice hurdle (LISTERS AUDI QUATTRO NOVICES´ HURDLE (CLASS 4) (4yo+) 23 runners 2m3f Good RUK), he ran a nice race at Exeter first time out and could be a nice horse for the future.
