by Hayley  All quiet on the Western Front this week with no runners and none scheduled for the weekend either, however, we have several entered up for Monday. We've been cracking on with breaking in the yearlings. Anna has had her skills put to the test with one of the fillies showing a particularly spirited nature. Wednesday was an experience to say the least but since then this youngs...

by Hayley  Rain, rain and more rain.  Yorkshire has been hit with a serious amount of water in the last couple of days and though South Yorkshire seems to have had the lions share, we've also had an abundance. The ground is so soft we've had to hang fire schooling Anticipate over hurdles for now as it's just too soft for a young horse that's still learning the job. The rain didn't...

by Hayley The older horses remain in decent form with another placed effort on Friday courtesy of Arnold at Newcastle. Being placed is great, it confirms they're fit and well, but of course it's winners that count and we can't seem to 'buy a winner' at the moment. Our luck will change, and we have placed our hopes firmly in Uncle Charlie's hooves. He runs tonight in the 6.15pm at Newcastle (the...

by Hayley  A beautiful start to the week with back-to-back sunshine, a welcome change after the deluge of rain we've experienced with Friday afternoon especially soggy! The result of such rain has ensured 'heavy' going for Catterick's meeting today but we're looking forward to an afternoon in the Yorkshire sunshine nonetheless, as our local track stages their final flat meeting before the ju...

by Hayley So much goes in to getting a horse to the races, the dedication of the staff, skilled vets/farriers/physios and the patience and investment of the owner/s to name but a few key factors, but one thing we have no say in and all want on our side, is ‘luck’. Lady Luck hasn’t been too kind to us lately and though things seem to be turning a corner with some decent runs fro...

by Hayley The Wensleydale Heifer is a hugely popular restaurant, not just in the local area but across the county and certainly amongst the racing community here. Excellent food in the comfort of a traditional country pub with a welcoming warm ambience, what more could you want? We always recommend the Heifer to visitors of the yard and the lodges while Ann and George can often be found enjoying ...

We’ve had a few of horses hit the goal posts recently, Troop and Cuppacoco especially ran very well in defeat which is both encouraging and frustrating in equal measures. As a win is proving to be somewhat elusive, we’re pining our hopes on Troop as he heads back to Newcastle to contest the 5.30pm under Franny Norton. Fingers crossed for a bit of luck – we could use it! Making...
