Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 29 January 2018

The horses continue to run superbly…

Lady Mix and Ouro Branco both ran well at Doncaster on Friday and Saturday also Camron  De Chaillac won on Sunday at Sedgefield, he was well ridden by Sean Houlihan and made all the running for another success. Camron De Chaillac is entered for Taunton on Sunday and if he’s ok he’ll run again. We also had some pointers running at the weekend at Chipley park, Bellini Dubreau was third in the maiden and ran well for a very long way, he should win one before the ground changes as he wants it soft. Brave Vic ran in the novice riders race and gave Tom Buckley his first ride in public, they both had a good school round as required, it was ideal as it was Toms first ride and the horse had not ran for three years. We have quite a few horses entered this week, firstly we have Le Musee entered at Wincanton on Thursday, he’s a nice horse by Galileo and is having his first run over hurdles. We then have Sin Sin entered at Catterick on Friday, Then the mighty Pearl Royale at Wetherby on Saturday and finally On Sunday at Taunton we’ve entered Camron De Challiac, Take A Break and Sapphire Noire so it’s going to be a very busy week ahead.
