Nothing much to report this week, I feel we should mention the Davy Russell incident, even though it’s boring everyone  by now. No matter what anyone says if the same thing happened to a claimer or apprentice they would have received a large fine or ban or both and be made an example of. What Davy did, didn’t affect the horse either way but it does look bad and there should be consequences. Racing should be seen in the same light as other equestrian sports and not be tarnished by incidents like this. The horses continue to get fitter and a few have really improved physically, we just need some rain. Patsy Oriel runs tomorrow at Newton abbot in the novice handicap chase, riding Patsy is Sean Bowen. He’s a lovely big horse but he’s also got a bit on the slow side so the trip should be ideal. Nachi Falls is entered for Southwell on Wednesday and will love the ground. On Thursday we have  entered Dharoos at Chelmsford on the flat, he’s been ready to run for a while over hurdles but we need some rain so we’ve decided to give him a run on the flat, he’s a nice sort and should go well.

We haven’t had any luck with any winners this week but they all ran well, with the exception of a couple. Nachi Falls wasn’t to impressed with Stratford but was staying on fourth and wasn’t beaten by far. Atlantic King ran well at Fontwell and is going the right way, we shall try him over further as he seems to appreciate a trip. Calin Du Brizais ran well after getting hampered turning in at Newton Abbot but seems better over fences, it was worth a try back over hurdles. We are very busy at the moment getting all the horses fit, when the ground comes soft we shall be ready to go. There are loads to run and we are really looking forward to seeing some of the better horses back in action again.

We have a very busy week coming up…

Both horses that raced this week ran good races, Atlantic King was third at Bangor on Wednesday and only got beaten by five lengths, he struggled early on and then stayed on really well to grab third place. It was his first run over fences and hopefully he can build on that. Patsy Oriel ran on the same day at Newton Abbot and finished third in a novice hurdle staying on well at the finish. He will come on a lot for that run and will probably run over fences next time. This weekend we have runners at Market Rasen, Pomme runs in the novice hurdle and is in great form after winning there last time, Brigid Jo is in the same race, she ran at Uttoxeter last time and was very green so she needs to improve this time. At Newton abbot next Tuesday we’ve entered Calin du Brizas and Buffalo Sabre, Calin is back over hurdles where he is well in compared to his rating over fences, he also loves the track and the trip so we’re hopeful of a good run. Buffalo is in the conditional chase and has been going well but has something to prove. Thursday we have a nice horse called Dharoos entered for Worcester and as long as the ground is safe he should run. Thursday stable star Nachi Falls will be entered for Stratford in a novice chase and Atlantic King entered for Fontwell so after a quiet time we could have a busy week next week.

It has been a quiet week here at Thorne Farm with no jump racing but there’s lots going on in the yard. All of the horses are back in and are big and fat, it’s going to be a hard couple of months getting them back into shape, this consists of lots of walking and trotting then loads of steady work up the gallops. This is hard work for the horses and riders because the staff have been on holiday as well and they need to get into shape also. There a few races next week and we have entries at Newton Abbot one being Patsy Oriel who is a nice big horse from Ireland and is the winner of a point to point, he will probably need the run to sharpen him up. We also have Buffalo Sabre who is racing in the novice chase and is coming back after a wind op and finally we have Calin Du Brizais racing, he is in the same race as Buffalo Sabre and has got a great record around Newton Abbot. Atlantic King is entered at Bangor over fences, he jumps very well and hopefully it should bring about some improvement in him.

Beautiful views at Thorne Farm Racing
