Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 06 October 2017
It was a sad day at Exeter…
On Thursday, Pomme broke down badly and has been retired from racing, the good news is she’s fine and back in her box at the yard. Pomme ran nine times, she won two and was second once, she never achieved her full potential and was very unlucky with injuries. Pomme will make a nice broodmare, she has the size and a decent pedigree. Danny Cook came down and schooled a load of our horses before going to Exeter, It was his first visit to Thorne Farm and he was quietly impressed with our facilities. Danny started his career down in the West Country and has progressed since, he is now one of the top jockeys up north. There are plenty of entries this week, at Carlisle we have Cameron De Chaillac, Tequila Secret and Sapphire Noire, the same day at Uttoxeter the entries are Johanos, Jack In A Box and Georgina Joy. At Lingfield on Wednesday we have Nachi Falls entered on the flat.
