Yesterday Briardale won very well at Newcastle, leading the entire way round, and winning by three lengths, under a lovely ride from Jim Crowley. We also had Belle de Lawers and Flawlessly run after long lay offs due to injury- Flawlessly a year, and Belle de Lawers nearly two! Both fillies got round safe, which is the most important part, and we are sure that it will have done their fitness a lot of good. Cray ran very well earlier in the week to come third, he was beaten only by two very nice looking horses. Airton was unfortunately bumped into in his race, causing his jockey to loose his irons, and nearly fall, but luckily they both got home alright.
Please feel very welcome to visit us on the Middleham open day on Monday, we will be showing some of our lovely colts for sale, as well as doing a schooling demonstration in our arena. While you are here you could also have a go at our four to follow, which only costs £10 to enter and will have a prize fund of over £200. Pick one two year old and three older horses you think will run well during the flat season, and earn points for wins and places!
