2019 Season

2019 Season

Thursday, January 9, 2020


My 4th full season has now come to a close. We finished 44th in the Championship. Prize Money and Winners were down on 2018 but Prize money up from 2017. We had a very good start to the season and have been thriving since September however we had a quiet couple of months in July and August. I suppose this is just how things go. I think I lacked a few older horses to get the numbers on the board during these months but all good things come to those who wait and I was very pleased with how the slower maturing horses did at the back end of the season. It means we have some lovely 3 years to go to war with in 2020.

In November we got all the yearlings in ad they learnt their trade all the way up to Christmas, before their break they were cantering upsides and the more forward ones where doing some stronger canters. Everything had flu and EHV vaccinations and a nice easy time, ready to crack on in the new year. Aims for this year is to get some nice two year olds to Royal Ascot, then continue in the year with some nice saturday winners and getting every horse past the winning line first!

We have a great team here and I am proud of all the work they do. The NTF and BHA have put together some great training schemes which some members of staff at completeing.
