A pleasing debut from Organdi

Organdi ran a very pleasing debut in the bumper at Wincanton yesterday (pictured, courtesy of Jon Holton).  Pulling quite hard early on, Sam Twiston-Davies settled her towards the rear of the field before moving smoothly through to be on the heels of the leaders turning for home.

She stayed on well up the straight and this very athletic, well-bred mare showed a great attitude despite being green and looks to have a decent future.

Having purchased her along with Beautiful People on a trip to France with the Adlestrop Club, the syndicate have been very patient with her but it looks as though it will be rewarded.

There are shares available in the syndicate, so please be in touch if you would be interested.  Details are on our ‘horses for sale‘ page.

Stoney Cross also pleased connections in the same bumper.  She was on the heels of the leaders turning in – but found the ground a bit quick for her.  She is a well-bred mare and hopefully over hurdles with more of a test of stamina, she will be winning for us.

Timetobenefit travelled into the straight looking as though she was going to be competitive but failed to quicken from two out.  We may now investigate her wind, as she definitely has the ability to win races.

Muthabir showed the signs of a long season, having jumped well in the handicap hurdle and he will now go on his holidays.  He is in the grip of the handicapper but once given a chance, I am sure he will be winning for the Adlestrop Experience syndicate again.

Timmy Murphy announced his retirement last night after riding a winner at Chepstow.  I have known him for many decades having ridden out for us in his early years in this country when we were in Lmabourn.

He has ridden for us on many occasions and is a gifted horseman.  We wish him well in his new career.
