New owners to the yard, The Jolly Boys Racing Club, have asked Andy to train their newly-purchased Monsieur Bond (IRE) x Velvet Jaguar yearling colt. This handsome colt will become a handsome gelding when the vet visits the yard tomorrow!
Ripon is the focus of attention for Team Crook today as Racemaker and Crakehall Lad compete in the last two races on this afternoon’s card. Good luck to both horses and to their respective owners.
Racemaker is off to Carlisle races today, hopefully the going and the distance will be to his liking.
Following two recent retirements, it is good to have new horse in the yard. Please welcome Mr Brian Valentine’s 2yo chestnut gelding, Red Seeker. The horse is seen here at the Tattersalls Breeze Up Sale in May.
Liskeard made a fair effort of his racecourse debut but struggled with the uphill finish. However, prior to the race he did win the ‘Best Turned Out’ award, aided & abetted by BTO Queen, Amy of course!
Liskeard is due to make his racecourse debut at Hexham tomorrow, hoping to justify the patience of his owners. Ideally he’d like the going to ease a little so any rain would be appreciated.
Hot on the heels of Nashville, Python has also been retired following his race at Beverley yesterday.
