Eva Clare in the Money again

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.

New arrival

Pleased to announce that we have purchased a very classy 2-y-o filly by the multiple Group 1-winning Dylan Thomas to be trained at Spigot Lodge by Karl Burke. This strong looking filly was purchased at the Newmarket Yearling Sales and comes with the Tattersalls £10,000 yearling bonus attached.

Like all Dylan Thomas offspring she’s going to take time to come to hand but we definitely think it will be worth the wait as she looks a very exciting prospect for the future and not one to miss out on. Should be ready to go mid-season onwards and shares are now available.

Eva Clare wins at Southwell

Thursday 27th February saw our 3-y-o filly make the trip down to Southwell for a 5f Maiden and on only her second start on a racecourse she triumphed much to the delight of her loyal owners who were there to cheer her home. Partnered by jockey Ben Curtis she was soon out of the gates and travelling strongly just off the pace. As they approached the furlong pole it seemed as though the heavily backed favourite was going to draw clear but Eva Clare had other ideas and once Ben asked her for an effort the response was instant and she drew along side the leader and readily went past to score by half a length.

This was a big step-up from her debut run and one that she will come on for a lot again, her loyal owners can now start to look forward to plenty more winning days out with her that’s for sure.

Middleham Open Day

An early reminder for the Open day that takes place every year in Middleham on Good Friday. This year it falls on April 18th and The Mount Racing Club will be out in force at Spigot Lodge stables. It’s a great day out when all the stables in the village throw open their doors and give everyone unprecedented access to their yards. It’s also a great day for numerous charities who benefit from the generosity of the public so why not pop along for what’s going to be another memorable day.
