Newsletter - Susan Corbett's Newsletter
January 10, 2023

New Year's Newsletter from our trainer Susan Corbett.

Well a mixed week but overall a very positive one. Starting at Mussselburgh on Sunday with En Meme Temp running very well to be 3rd after being the most difficult horse to keep sound and train! Five stars for the patience of the Owners. This was quickly followed up by a 2nd for Les’s Legacy over an unknown distance for him. He was well ridden by Dillan Hurst who has picked up a spare ride on the back of that at Doncaster tomorrow. So now we have choices with LLegacy 2 – 2.4 he always tries his best!

Gowanbuster then came back ( more comebacks than Bing Crossby singing White Christmas! ) to run a blinder to be pipped into 2nd after a new type of wind op looked like it has worked very well – fingers crossed for Konik King who will be back racing with us after his rehab. Maisie Too ran very well in an ‘above average mares race’ at Newcastle under Dillan she was just pipped into 5th but not much between 3rd – 5th she will go hurdling now after a bumper career.

First run for Imperial Sachins did not go so well, he ran well for ¾ then ran out of steam – I think he needed the run and will need better ground – because of the ground we then pulled Devout out of his race at the request of his jockey Sam Coltherd as he was sure Devour would hate the ground and I agreed. Disappointing but there will be another day coming…

So staff are ( at last! ) all back to work and they are still coughing but getting on with the job and still eating their Christmas chocs. All the Flat horses Mekbat, Clear Angel, Naughty George, the three New Colts are all back in full work this week as is the gorgeous Beaumesnil. Still got three to break in but no rush for those ones – they are our own home breds. An experiment with the staff of a new yard man doing more mucking out and giving the riders more time to ride. He has also been a groom and can help with lunging, long reining and brushing horses as well as going racing if required – which brings us to some exciting news Emma Tully – has reached the top three of the Godolphin stud and stable staff awards! Winning 2k for herself and the team with a potential of winning 10K! She has her final interview in February - finger crossed.

So this week – Thursday sees Atomic Angel back over hurdles at Catterick which should suit her its over 3 miles. Saturday maybe Nulli Secudus at Wetherby but she may wait for the AWeather at Newcastle. Kelso we have Wor verge in a big race 0 – 135 but half are entered elsewhere so that may cut up nicely. En Meme Temp and Velasco in the same chase which I hate doing but its perfect for both. Devour tries again in the Conditional jockeys race 3 mile 0 – 100 – again ground dependant.

So another exciting week ahead!

Kind Regards
