The week started with Les’s Legacy having his second start over Fences he was no disgrace and much better than his first attempt.
We have been looking for a horse to replace Konik King who is having the life of Riley staying here and doing no work being pampered in his new ownership!
Sam Coltherd found us a horse ( Theatre Light ) in Ireland which was due to come to the posh Cheltenham sale on Friday. We quickly had her vetted ( having being recently gazumpt ) and she set off as planned for Cheltenham but we collected her on the way!
So many thanks to Marj and Mike for the supper and the sofa for a few hours when, we three, all set off to collect the mare from a huge Lorry Park at 3am! I got back to the yard at 7am and we are all very happy with her – she is back in work and we hope she will run in around 3-4 weeks. She is a lovely big mare, winner of a PTP in November and we still have a few shares left. Then we had Beaumesnil and Velasco at Hexham in heavy ground but they needed the run and did not make a bad account. Velascos jumping was very good – they both head for Wetherby on boxing day where they both drop back in trip. It was the end of a career for Gowanbuster after winning 5 races – including being our very first Two year old winner – he has ran 47 times – won 5 and placed to 4th 19 times, winning almost 36K and being rated up to 80.
He will retire as he bled in his race and we will look for a good home for his retirement. Thanks to Les and Viv who entrusted his care to us and we look forward to his nephew Gowaneddie – taking up the mantle……
I hope everyone that came to the Owners Christmas Party enjoyed themselves. The raffle raised over £400.00 for Cancer research thanks to all who bought tickets and brought the brilliant raffle prizes.
