Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 19 May 2017

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.
