Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 28 July 2017

A big problem in the racing industry is staff shortages and for as long as I can remember it’s not been any different, if it wasn’t for the kids who go into racing who have a genuine love of horses it would be chaotic. These are our future head lads/girls jockeys and our future trainers but wages are not the answer. Most of the young people in racing have decent cars and the latest mobile phones, they also have a very good social life no different to any other teenagers starting out a working life. So much has been written about conditions of work and long hours etc. but it’s not like working down the mines, if a trainer is treating his staff badly then they can always  leave and if your any good you’ll have another job straight away. The point is that there’s no need for all this so called unpaid long hours and it’s mostly down to the management to make sure that everyone starts and finishes on time in a good working environment because that’s what puts people off more than anything. Brigid Jo runs on Sunday at Uttoxeter, she’s a nice mare by presenting and goes well at home, she will take a couple of runs to learn the game as she’s very green at home but she should have a good future. Nachi Falls runs next Tuesday at Worcester and is going up in trip, we think it should suit him, he schooled over fences this morning and is raring to go.

We started with a bit of a bad day at Worcester on Tuesday, Atlantic King whipped around at the start and ended up unfortunately not taking part. Sadly these things can happen at the races and it’s no one’s fault. Just like a horse unseating at the first, you get no run for your money so it’s very unlucky but it’s all part of racing, It is what makes the good days better. We only have one runner this weekend Calin Du Brizais who is running on Sunday at Newton Abbot and he’s in great form. His last four runs have been third, first, first and second so we’re very hopeful of another good run from him.

We have a few pictures below of our amazing winner last week Pomme, who did a very impressive run

 

All very proud of Pomme!

Pomme did us proud!

Last Sunday was a good day as the ever promising Pomme showed everyone what she has been showing us for a while, she cruised along in front jumping well and won as she liked. Watching that race it’s hard to imagine that she couldn’t even get around Newton Abbot last time and that remains a mystery, needless to say she probably doesn’t like the track and won’t be going back there in a hurry. There is a similar race back at Market Rasen in two weeks and she’ll probably go for that. Nachi Falls ran another great race finishing third and in doing so has a record of fourteen runs and finishing in the frame ten times considering he first ran for us last July, he has won and been placed over hurdles, fences and on the flat. There are No runners this week but we are very busy now and will be until next April, we’re not complaining though, we’ve got some lovely horses. We will be at the Newmarket sales this week where there are three days of decent flat horses for sale hopefully we can find another winner or two.

All back to normal after last week, the funeral was massive and fifteen hundred people turned out to pay their respects. People from all walks of life came, the boss will be sadly missed. We had two runners at Newton Abbot today, Flasheen has to improve and Atlantic King should run well if he builds on his last run. Nachi Falls and Pomme  run on Sunday at Market Rasen and both are in good order. Nachi is having his first run over fences and has schooled very well at home. Pommes last run was a bit of a mystery, she’s a decent mare who will come good. The annual Thorne Farm golf day was held on Thursday and was won in a very impressive fashion by Eddie Buckley who completely outclassed the opposition, a very weary Mark Phillips finished second but was never the class of the winner, Nigel pulled up!!!
