Nigel has had a busy week juggling the sales and racing at Warwick with Level of Intensity. Although finishing 5th he was only beaten by just 4 lengths, Nigel says ‘he ran brilliantly, the pace was just a bit to slow for him which just caught him out at the end but exciting times ahead with this horse’.

The DBS sales at Doncaster always create a natural buzz and horse purchases are often the start of many exciting journeys to success. Nigel bought three unnamed store horses by the sires Kapgarde, kayf Tara and Arcadio. All three horses look the part and will now be broken in to be ridden by the team here at Thorne Farm and are offered for sale. They all have lovely temperaments and coped well with the rigours of the sales environment and travelled home smoothly which is a brilliant start to their careers, their future certainly looks very exciting. Nigel also bought a lovely horse from Juddmonte consignment on day three the horses in training sale, which looks very special. Our last purchase from Juddmonte was Pomme who we all adored and if this horse is as good as her we shall be very pleased. This purchase was of a similar source to Tiger roll, a 3yr old flat horse consigned by a very highly regarded establishment.

Pomme our last purchase from Juddmonte.
