We're very sad to bring you the news that earlier this week, Up The Millers was put to sleep. He is a big loss to the yard and of course to DGA Racing. He was a lovely young horse that had plenty of potential and bags of character and will most certainly be missed.
On a more uplifting note, we welcomed back an old face to the yard. The beautiful, big white face of Peach Pavlova. Peachy was purchased as a yearling, broken in at Sun Hill and raced for two seasons. She was incredibly unlucky not to win as a two-year-old but her seemed out of sorts for much of her three-year-old season, which in hindsight concided with the yard suffering a virus. Her owners, Rosamund and Elizabeth Stott, decided that a future as a show horse would be worth considering, given her flashy looks and fluid action. Peachy has spent the last year at the local yard of top show producers Magnus and Kate Nicholson. They have done a brilliant job with her, she looks fantastic as you can see below and looks to have strengthened up into a lovely filly. She is now a four-year-old and with her long-term future in mind, Elizabeth and Ros have decided that now is a good time to bring her back into training. Hopefully she will pick up a race or two during the upcoming season. This will increase her prospects as a broodmare and she still has plenty of time to turn her hooves to showing or dressage.
