Newsletter - Susan Corbett Newsletter - Horses poised to win
January 16, 2023
Susan Corbett's newsletter:
So the usual ups and downs with the ups far outweighing the downs this week. The Two year olds are all in work and gently proceeding towards races in – maybe 3 months- time. The Flat horses such as Mekbat, Clear Angel and Naughty George are all heading for a Spring campaign after having a good break. Beaumesnil – ‘best horse Jamie has ever sat on’ is back in work after fracturing a leg – that was a close call but as you can see from the pics he is proceeding nicely!
We are looking for new members of the Northern Racing Club with Orlas Abbey due to run at the end of the month ( rather good out take of her and Jamie schooling! ) usual plan of £90.00 per share with a maximum or 20 shares. Mekbat will be ready when Orlas has her rest – he was 4th last time out on the Flat – there are also shares in him to buy as the club just leases 50% Orla and 50% Mekbat – please ask for details.
So to the racing – Atomic Angel won her race at Catterick under Sam Coltherd by 14 lengths! He had no idea where the rest of the field had gone ( should have gone to Spec Savers lol )
Competition – anyone who wants to put a £1.00 in the charity kitty and guess how many pounds the handicapper will put her up on Tuesday, please let me know before tomorrow morning! All charity work we do this year will go to Cancer Research.
Velasco did not cover himself in glory at Kelso running of with our yard jockey before the start and then pulling up – but we have his measure now and he will go to Catterick on the 25th over hurdles. Meanwhile Wor Verge gave a great performance to be 3rd in a 0- 135 way above his pay grade! Nathan who achieved his 100th winner this weekend gave him a patient, waiting ride.
Excitement this week – we hope!
Maisie Too – first time over hurdles and her MO was 3rd! 4th 4th and 5th not as recently reported!
Nulli Secundus runs in the bumper on the All weather for the Cheltenham Trail Racing Club.
Imperial Sachins has his second run for us depending on how he works early week
Les’s Legacy – may go to Newcastle or defer to Market Rasen – Friday for better ground with Devour who is also looking for better ground.
Gowanbuster goes to Newcastle Friday – second run after his wind op – it looks a hot race but he has improved from his first run after his wind op.
Fingers crossed the snow does not interfere with our plans as it’s a positive week ahead!
