Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 14 July 2017

We started with a bit of a bad day at Worcester on Tuesday, Atlantic King whipped around at the start and ended up unfortunately not taking part. Sadly these things can happen at the races and it’s no one’s fault. Just like a horse unseating at the first, you get no run for your money so it’s very unlucky but it’s all part of racing, It is what makes the good days better. We only have one runner this weekend Calin Du Brizais who is running on Sunday at Newton Abbot and he’s in great form. His last four runs have been third, first, first and second so we’re very hopeful of another good run from him.

We have a few pictures below of our amazing winner last week Pomme, who did a very impressive run


All very proud of Pomme!
