The weather’s not doing us any favours this week but we’ve been working hard on improvements at Thorne Farm nonetheless!

We’re currently installing new hurdles and fences at the farm to ensure our facilities stay top notch and the young horses get best advantage from it. All our recent purchases are progressing nicely and enjoying the lie of the land and training regime here at Thorne Farm.

Our stable star, the four year old Rejaah, who has won his last four outings on the trot, is looking good for the Summer Hurdles at Market Rasen in a few weeks time. Summer jump racing may not be to everyone’s taste but this meeting at the Lincolnshire course always attracts an enthusiastic crowd with races attracting strong competitive fields. It’s going to be a great test but we think he’s up for it.

It’s Royal Ascot week this week and everyone that goes there will get treated to the best flat racing of the year!

The prize money on offer at Royal Ascot is huge and that in turn brings all the best horses from all over the world; it’s flat racings equivalent of the Cheltenham Festival and trainers will have been thinking of which races to go for all winter. Unfortunately we don’t have any runners this year but who knows what the future holds.

We attended the Land Rover sale at Goffs in Ireland last week and bought a nice Scorpion three year old gelding. He’s out of a winning dam and is a brother to a winner and really looks the part. He will be broken in and turned away like the others.

If the rain stays away we should have a few runners next week, Avel Vor is in Southwell on Monday and Tokyo Javilex and Petergate possibly at Newton Abbot on Tuesday.

Rejaah was back in the winners enclosure again for Thorne Farm and Nigel Hawke last Friday jumping nicely and staying on well to win by eight lengths going away.

rejaah44

Since she arrived at Thorne Farm she has had five runs won four of them and amassed £37.695 in prize money. You can see why she is the star of the stable. Rejaah will probably run in the summer hurdle back at Market Rasen in July. She handled the track fine and loves the summer ground.

The horses we bought at Doncaster are being broken in at the moment. The ones that have raced are Nachi Falls , he’s doing plenty of work and schooling over hurdles and really enjoying himself at the moment. He could run in July either over hurdles or on the flat.

Nachi Falls

The other new arrival is Lake Placid and he’s been gelded so he’s having an easy time while he gets over it. We have already schooled him over hurdles and he jumps well so as soon as he’s ready he’ll be on a similar plan.

Lake Placid

Both of these horses are available for purchase, please call Nigel Hawke a call on 01884 881666 or mobile: 07769295839 or email nigel@thornefarmracingltd.co.uk

The Thorne Farm horses have been running well but just missing out on the honours over the last week.

Acadian was fourth at Stratford last Saturday, the rain scuppered his chances but he still ran well. Tom Bellamy rode him and reckons he will get his head in front before long.

Point N Shoot ran a blinder at Newton Abbot on Wednesday in the bumper finishing fourth. This was his first time on the track so we were very pleased. He’s a very tough horse and could make in to a nice staying chaser one day. This time last season he broke his pelvis on the gallops and the vet wasn’t very hopeful of a recovery of any sort. Things looked very grim for a few days but the staff at Thorne Farm did wonders to nurse him back to health. Slowly he started to improve and after a few weeks he was moving well around his box eventually going out in the field for a complete rest before he came back into training.

It’s great when a horse like that can repay your faith in him after all he’s been through.

As previously mentioned we bought well at Doncaster and through the next few weeks there will be pictures of the new inmates to be viewed on the website, these horses are all for sale, if interested give Nigel a ring on 01884 881666 or mobile: 07769295839 or email nigel@thornefarmracingltd.co.uk
