Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog- Friday 7th September 2018

Share

We have had a busy & exciting week culminating with our Nigel Hawke Racing Club open evening on Saturday 1st September & our Open day for invited guests on the Sunday 2nd September.
It was a lovely warm late summer evening with 40 members of the club who saw their Racing Club horses paraded & Nigel commentating on each individual horse. The club horses for this season are:
Alloneamongstamillion
Atlantic King
Ballymagroaty Boy
Georgina joy
Mead vale
It is not too late to join the racing club any enquiries give Steve Winfield a call on 07739437574.

On Sunday we held our Thorne Farm Racing Open day. The weather enabled the six paraded horses to gleam in the sunshine and over 100 invited guests saw Speredek, Tanrudy, Verbitude, Pearl Royale, Rejaah and Deauville Crystal. Speredek particularly enjoyed all the photos & attention. Nigel gave a full commentary on each horse & explained about the races that they will be aimed for. Speredek will be aimed for the Haldon Gold Cup in November at Exeter. Verbitude will go Juvenile hurdling in October/ November. Pearl Royale will hopefully go to Carlisle in November for a Grade 2 mares chase and Tanrudy will possibly go for a 3m hurdle and then onto novice chasing.

We also showed off a small elite selection of young horses for sale from France & Ireland to a very captive audience. For further information on these horses please visit our website or give Nigel a call on 07769 295839

On Tuesday Lamh Ar Lamh went to Stratford for the ‘Bet at Racinguk.com Mare’s Handicap Hurdle’. We were absolutely delighted with her performance finishing 3rd. Now that she has learnt to settle she should pick up a race or two at this time of year.
We have a very busy week ahead of us with lots of entries coming up.

This week we have been busy preparing for the weekend, with the racing club open evening being held on Saturday evening and the open day on Sunday.

We are really looking forward to seeing everybody and would be great to meet any potential new owners or members to our racing club. The weather forecast is looking good for both events, so we hope to parade a few of the horses in the sunshine for everybody to see. The horses that we will be parading include Speredek, Pearl Royale, Tanrudy, Verbitude, Rejaah and Deauville Crystal. If you would like to see any other horses parade do not hesitate to ask Nigel or Eddie Buckley on the day. With the British weather being as unpredictable as it can be, we do have a big marquee up. If you would like to join us for either our racing club evening or open day, please contact Nigel on 07769 29583. On arrival you will all receive a complimentary programme which holds information on all of our horses in training at Thorne Farm Racing.

This week has been relatively quiet on the runner’s side of things for Thorne Farm, but it certainly isn’t that way at home on the yard. With all the horses back into work now the team are extremely busy with riding out and taking care of them all.
Due to a couple of days with heavy rain, on Wednesday we were able to school a few of the horses out on the grass over hurdles. Its great to get them out on the grass as they can properly stretch out and it would be the nearest thing to being in a race.

On Saturday 1st September at 6pm Nigel Hawke Thorne Farm Racing Club is holding an open evening for existing members and potential members. The racing club is a great way to get involved in racehorse ownership at a very reasonable cost. If you think that you might be interested, please contact Nigel Hawke on 07769 295839.

On Sunday 2nd September Thorne Farm will be hosting its annual open day. It is invitation only but if you would be interested in coming and also have an interest in buying into our racehorses or having a horse in training with Nigel then please do not hesitate to contact Nigel on 07769 295839.
