Our new 2-y-o filly Fidelma Moon confirmed the promise of her debut 2nd placing by scoring in a 7f Novice Stakes at Wolverhampton in what could turn out to be a very hot little race. In a small but very select field of 5 she lined up against a previous winner from the Ann Duffield yard and 2 well regarded types from the big Newmarket stables, one which had previously ran in a Listed race. There were still signs of ‘greenness’ from Fidelma as at first she was a bit reluctant to enter the stalls and then when they opened she missed the break completely giving away 4 or 5 lengths to the others. Regular Jockey Joey Haynes soon got her organised though and after 2 furlongs she rounded the field and settled nicely at the head of affairs. Joey managed to get a breather into her down the back straight and then as they turned for home 2f out he kicked on again. This soon had the others in trouble and Fidelma lengthened away quite nicely and went onto to win a shade cosily in the end eased down at the line, much to the delight of her happy band of Owners who were cheering her on from the Stands.
Our 2yo filly Fidelma Moon ran a race full of promise when she debuted in a 7f Maiden at Great Yarmouth. On leaving the stalls she was very green for much of the first half of the race but once the penny dropped she came with what looked like a winning run under jockey Joey Haynes only to be beaten by the narrowest of margins in a photo with the favourite.
Considering the winner had the benefit of experience this was a great first run from her and although she finished second, on this evidence it won’t be too long before she’s getting her head in front – A nice prospect for the future!
Pleased to say our new 2yo filly by Dylan Thomas has now been officially named as ‘Fidelma Moon‘. It’s an Irish girls name meaning constant beauty thats forever good and we certainly hope it’s a name she can live up to.
It’s a case of so far so good with Fidelma as far as her work at home is concerned, she’s a nice filly with plenty of scope an easy mover with a good engine is how she’s described and is very well thought of by all.
We have plenty of share packages available in her so now is the ideal time to get involved.
Tuesday 18th March saw Eva Clare make her debut in handicap company in what could turn out to have been quite a decent little race over 5f at Southwell. Straight from the gates opening they went very hard and full credit to Eva who managed to go with them and was in with a serious shout at the furlong pole until she was hampered by the eventual runner-up who drifted across the course taking Eva with him. The general feeling was that we probably wouldn’t have beaten the winner but could have finished 2nd instead of 3rd if we hadn’t been hampered, but she was back safe and we live to fight another day.
This was another solid run from Eva who was up against seasoned handicappers and conceding weight to them as well, she will have learned a lot from this and will come on for it again. There’s certainly going to be plenty more visits to the winners enclosure for her owners to look forward to with her.
