Racing Ahead!

 

2014 was a very exciting year for our race horses and racing team!

 

We had a total of 9 winners, 8 on the flat and 1 over hurdles, we also had 6 seconds and 6 thirds. Our strike rate is very impressive with just under 50% of runners placing in the first 3 and 19% of runners being winners, one of the finest strike rates in the country!

 

“The highlight of last year would have to be winning a very valuable handicap at Sandown with Treasure the Ridge. A horse we brought for only £6,600, after winning a seller and which went on to win 3 more races on the bounce for us and finally the big Sandown handicap, he has more than paid his way.” Says Michael Keady, our Head Lad.

 

We are currently training 11 racehorses at the farm and have our eyes peeled for new horses to buy from other trainers which we can train and improve.

 

We are looking forward to the forthcoming year as we have very nice prospects for both our youngsters and older horses.
