As at 15th August 2018
Horatio Hornblower has run so well for us over the last few months. Since he joined our string during the Autumn of 2017 he has run SEVEN times and has finished 3, 4, 1, 5, 2, 2 and 3 and won prize money every time. His win was at Newbury in January 2018 and both his second places were in big races, one at Sandown and one at Haydock and winning £17k for those three races alone, and remember - all that prize money goes back to members.
Queen of the Wind has also run in seven races during the 2017/2018 season which is quite a lot for a five year old especially as she has encountered soft or heavy ground in nearly all her races which has not been in her favour. She has done well, learning from every run and winning her penultimate start at Southwell in March 2018.
Outofthisworld is going to be fascinating and exciting to follow later this year. Harry Fry is very excited about her and believes we really do have a star in our stable, but could not risk running her on the dreadful ground conditions we have encountered this year. She will be out again in the autumn when (hopefully) ground conditions are much better.
Our five horses in Ireland are doing very nicely. They are all in pre-training and doing everything asked of them. We believe this method of bringing them on slowly from two year olds is really beneficial. We have two 4-y-o fillies, two 3-y-o geldings and a 3-y-o filly. They are put through their paces by Denis Leahy, an experienced trainer who gives them plenty of attention and seems to know when they should be pushed harder, or given a quite few days, in a relaxed environment and they will stay with him until he says they are ready for the rigours of joining a full-on racing yard. Watch this space.
Chasing Gold organised a trip to Ireland this summer and twenty lucky people went to visit our mares and their offspring maturing at stud and also got to see other young horses owned by Tom Chadney, some of which may join Chasing Gold in the future or be syndicated separately. This really was a special event as our members were able to visit the amazing facilities at the stud, plus we visited three Coolmore NH studs to view 17 stallions, and also enjoyed a trip to the Killarney Racing Festival which was great fun. This was our first Chasing Gold trip but could well become a regular feature.
