by Hayley Two weeks have passed since former jump jockey, James Banks, took his own life. This weekend, tv presenter Caroline Flack, ended hers.   We can try to empathise, attempt to understand 'why?', but only those who have been on the brink themselves can truly know what makes someone feel that this is their only way out, their only chance of peace. In recent years, the racing communit...

by Hayley    With the yard back in full swing, it was lovely to meet some 'new-to-us' owners, when they came to meet their horse for the first time. Steve and Julie are part of the syndicate that have 'Sea Storm', a pretty chesnut filly yet to make her debut for the yard. Now a four year old, she has two runs under her belt and should provide her connections with a bit of fun over the ...

by Hayley Rehoming racehorses is not always an easy task. With a huge volume of ex-racers looking for new homes every year, it is sadly quite easy for people to pick up a horse for either very little or no fee at all. No doubt some fall into kind, educated homes, but others won't be so lucky. We try our upmost to ensure that all of our retired racers go to experienced, caring ...

by Hayley  Dale and Anticipate It’s a little too soon to get excited about spring, but the presence of blue skies and sunshine accompanying the horses coming back into work has us dreaming of lighter mornings, warmer days and the impending turf season. The winter provides the horses with a much-needed period of rest, with many on the go for the majority of 2019 they earn the right t...

by Hayley  January is always the quietest time of our year. A month where horses are able to rest and recouperate after a busy season, whilst not letting themselves go quite as much as some of us have over the festive period! January is also the time that all those odd jobs get done, power washing, steam cleaning, painting and general maintenance - it doesn't make for interesting reading b...

by Hayley  For many, it's that weird period of time between Christmas and New Year where the Modus Operandi is relaxtion, chocolate is deemed a suitable breakfast and 'it's gone 10am, fancy a drink?' is totally acceptable... Most racing fans will have either been in attendence at one of the many Boxing Day meetings across the country yesterday, or in front of the fire with all of ...

by Hayley We are so pleased to say that James has reached the Top 10 in the Dedication category of the 2020 Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards.

by Hayley A switch of codes for You Little Beauty (12.40pm) and Troop (1.50pm) this afternoon, with both heading to Wetherby to make their debut over hurdles. It's been a little while since we had a jumps runner, the last of which was Silver Streak back in 2016 when he was second at Wetherby. He has of course gone on to do very well for Evan Williams and we've thoroughly enjoyed watching his jou...
