Thorne Farm is heading to the Doncaster sales next week!!

The sales at Doncaster are on next week from Tuesday through to Thursday, we shall be attending all three days. We have been quite lucky in the past and bought some nice horses from there. Pearl Royale, Johanos, Lady Mix and Nachi Falls were all purchased from Doncaster. Its a gruelling few days but if you pick up a few winners it’s all worth it. There is plenty to look at from young unbroken horses to horses that have ran on the flat and also point to pointers, so there’s something for everyone. It’s all about value for us so we will be looking for potential winners at a reasonable price. If anyone is interested in buying a horse and want our help just come and say hello, we are only too happy to oblige. We have got some runners this weekend they are Faction and Njorls Saga who will run at Bangor on Saturday. Lake Placid and Queen of Epirus run at Stratford on Sunday, they’ve all got little chances so it’s fingers crossed.

We had four runners at Newton Abbot on Wednesday, three in the first race, a mares novice hurdle. Pomme was our most fancied but she hung very badly right and was pulled up. It was a bit of a mystery because she’s never done anything like that before and she’s won left handed at Weatherby so we’re at a loss to explain it. The main thing is she’s fine after the race and will be out again very soon, probably on a right handed track. The other two in that race were Phoenix Firebird and Njorls Saga who finished fourth and fifth, we are very pleased with both of them. Lake Placid ran in the other novice and will benefit from the experience. Next week is fairly quiet at least up to the weekend when we might have entries at Uttoxeter and Bangor but we need some rain!

 

Pomme didn’t have a much luck at Newton Abbot on Wednesday

Welcome to Thorne Farm Racing’s first blog of the new season!!

Our very last runner of the old season was a winner, Lord Ballim won on Friday at Perth to take our seasonal tally to 28 and his personal tally to 4 which is very impressive considering he looked like he lost his way for the first half of the season. A big part of his success must be put down to Cairan Gethings who has ridden him in all his wins, he seems to click with the horse and that’s why he’s the horse with the most wins in the yard this season. Other multiple winners were Speredek, Deauville Crystal, Midnight Request, Johanos and Rejaah then we had Greybougg and Pearl Royale who both only won one but were placed another three times. Nachi Falls and Rejaah got us off to a flyer both winning three early season. Other individual winners were Lady Mix, Deckers Delight, Point N Shoot and Ouro Branco who are real soft ground horses, Petergate managed to win one as well. Our final total number of winners were 28  from 227 runners and 72 placed horses with £252.497 prize money a fantastic season and by far our best. A big thanks to all the owners and the staff who made it possible and of course the horses!

 

Lord Ballim ridden by Ciaran Gethings, wins for the 4th time this occasion at Perth Racecourse in the Glenearn Flooring Balnakeilly chase of the day!

Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 21 April 2017

Thorne Farm has had a very quiet week with the season ending this weekend….

A quiet week last week with only a few runners, unfortunately Petergate got injured when running a big race at Fontwell and will be out for quite a while, it’s a real shame because he would have had a great summer campaign but these things happen in racing and he’s being well looked after here at Thorne farm. Deauville Crystal ran below par at Cheltenham and will now have a nice break out at grass, she’s done very well winning three times and picking up £47,359 in prize money and will be one to follow next season. Nachi Falls ran well on the flat last Saturday and runs again this Saturday then we shall aim him at the two mile handicaps on the flat and see how he gets on. Lord Ballim was unlucky to unseat his rider at Perth on Wednesday and runs again at Perth on Friday, he’s always been a bit clumsy but if he jumps well he won’t be far away. The season ends this weekend and it’s been a very good one for us, there will be a review in next weeks blog!

 

Nachi Falls will be running this Saturday!
