Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 18 December 2015
We ran four four year-olds last week and they all ran well. On January 1st they will be five year-olds and they are all capable of winning races.
The stand-out horse was Pomme ridden by Conor O’Farrell at Doncaster in the BETDAQ.COM £25 FREE BET MAIDEN HURDLE (DIV I). She nearly fell at the second hurdle but recovered very well to finish fourth and stayed on well. We all think she’s got a bright future over hurdles and fences as she has already schooled over them well.
We have a few runners over the Christmas period namely Avel Vor, Petergate, Tokyo Javilex, Acadian, Bellini Dubreau, Master Neo, Deckers Delight, Calin du Brizias and Pomme. These all depend on the ground conditions and so on as to whether they run or not but at the moment that’s the plan.
In the new year there will be plenty of young horses having their first run so there’s loads to look forward too.
In the meantime we would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year from everyone here at Thorne Farm Racing!
