Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 21 April 2017
Lord Ballim has a fabulous win, making it three in a row now!!
Lord Ballim won again at Carlisle last Saturday, he has now won his last three races and we think there could be more to come. The handicapper has taken a dim view and shoved him up nine pounds so it’s going to be tougher but he’s a very tough horse and is capable of winning again. On Thursday Deauville Crystal runs at Cheltenham in a mares hurdle, she’s very well and hopefully can do the business again. On Friday Petergate runs at Fontwell, he’s not run for a while but he’s in good form and should run well. On Saturday Samingarry runs at Bangor and Nachi Falls runs at Wolverhampton on the flat. Nachi has had a break and a run on the flat will do him good and bring him on, depending on how he gets on he could run again on the flat. We are taking advantage of the nice weather and have let out lots of horses this week, it’s nice to see them out relaxing in the sun especially the ones that have won. The pictures below are of some horses schooling on our sand gallop, the ground is so firm so we are very lucky to have somewhere safe to school the horses.
