by Hayley Two good performances yesterday by both our runners at Beverley. Two-year-old filly, Heartstring, running for only the second time, again showed plenty of promise to finish fourth. Though still a little green, she is a quick learner and once the penny has dropped fully and competing in handicap company, she will be seen to stronger effect. She is well related, a half-sister to muli...

by Hayley  A holiday always sounds like a good idea until you get home and hit the ground running, the return to work is always something of a baptism of fire! A week in the sun appears to have melted my brain as it certainly doesn't seem to be functioning as fludily as pre-vacation, I'm sure it will take a few days to catch up and get back into the swing of things properly - but hey, it was...

by Hayley  James, our headman, is a grafter. He wakes up 4am, feeds at 4.45am (his choice), mucks out, rides out, and handles many of the horses using the water treadmill. A couple of hours off and then he's back in the yard feeding and rugging up. He works hard. He likes to keep active, you won't see him having more than a 5 minute tea break and I doubt he will ever fully switch o...

by Hayley  A couple of weeks ago, Ann and George headed down to London to meet with the BHA (British Horseracing Authority) to argue the case of the 'stalls rein'. The below video was filmed by us at Mick Easterby's last September and highlights the extremely useful bit of kit that he designed to stop horses ducking beneath the gates. The gadget used to be allowed on the racecourse, but...

by Hayley  A busy day with owners today, Alan Court popped in for a coffee (sorry Alan, we know Jean reads the blog, you can't get away with skiiving), Paul and Zee Thompson were in to watch their two work while Joe Richardson called in to see his filly, Swift Intrigue, and check out his brand new set of colours soon to be worn for the first time at the races. Picking a name and choosing you...

by Hayley  What a week we have enjoyed so far, and with Ninepin Bowler entered to run at Hamilton this evening the ball could keep on rolling.

Following on from Highly Focuss...

by Hayley  Yesterday was a great day for the Sun Hill team, celebrating a quick fire double at Beverley, courtesy of Arnold and Highly Focussed. The fact that all of the owners were present to enjoy the day was the icing on the cake. Perhaps for large yards, a double isn't so exciting, but for a small yard it is an occassion that we very much enjoy, appreciate and remember. Thank you to ever...

by Hayley The calm after the storm, today has been dry and muggy after last nights downpour. Thunder and lightning lit up the sky while a vast amount of rain hammered down for several hours. We, along with the rest of the country, have been in dire need of rain and so we welcomed it gladly - though whether the local farmers currently harvesting share the senitment, I don't know! We have four run...

by Hayley The only word to describe Friday was 'manic', luckily, today has been much less so, but busy nonetheless. To celebrate stable staff week, we enjoyed sandwiches and cakes in the sunshine while James cooled down under the hosepipe - it really was another scorcher. As winners of the Lycetts Team Champion award, we are keen to say just how much we respect and value the team here. None of it...
