Unfortunately Iron Horse hung throughout his race at Leicester today. Having worked and schooled well recently this is a bit of a puzzle, however it is probably something muscular and we will investigate the possible problem. He ran so well over course and distance last time that we can put a line through this run and hopefully we can get him back to that form soon as we approach the better ground in the spring.
It was good to have a work morning today, exercising a few potential runners for next week including Corrany and Run Rosie Run. Delighted to get some of our promising five-year-olds into some faster work and hopefully we have some exciting bumper horses for the spring.
It was great to welcome owner June Watts to the gallops yesterday to see her five-year-old Great Star go through his paces (pictured). He is a very attractive grey and he is pleasing us with his progress.
Looking forward to the Adlestrop Club Cheltenham Preview at the Cotswold Club in Chipping Norton on Monday 7th March. Many thanks to our brilliant panellists for agreeing to take part in this year’s event, with Alice Plunkett and Luke Harvey from ITV Racing and leading jump jockeys Tom Bellamy and Jonathan Burke going through the Festival runners. Details below. If you would like to attend, please book your places as soon as possible as we are restricted on numbers.
