Friday 11th May 

It has been all systems go for us at Thorne Farm, at the beginning of the week the preparation started for the horses to be turned out for their summer holidays and by Wednesday evening the first lot of 18 horses went out which included our stable star Speredek who has very much earned his. It was so lovely to see the horses enjoying themselves and getting the sun on their backs.


On Thursday Lady Mix went to Worcester. She was partnered by Tom Buckley and ran brilliantly to finish 2nd only beaten by 1 length. Nigel says “she ran a nice race”.
Faction made his first appearance for us this season and ran brilliantly. He was partnered by Connor 0’Farrell to finish 7th. We where delighted with him and he will come on from that race a lot.
We have a quiet weekend ahead with entries, but Katherine Hawke has three entries of her own at Trebudannon Point to Point.
Another exciting opportunity for Thorne Farm is our new Sponsorship. We our now sponsored by Junction 24, this is the owner of Sedgemoor auction centre near Bridgewater markets, conference and events, a familiar successful local business.
