Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 05 May 2017

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!
