All our horses are now having their summer break and will return to training mid-July when our trainers will get them ready to run from the autumn. 

During the summer we have our Irish trip to the Coolmore Studs, Ballincurrig Stud and the Killarney Festival to look forward to.

We also have our Trainers' Owners Lunches which will be happening during the summer when we will be able to see the horses when they have returned to training - always great occasions!


Below are details of some of our recent action :


Exciting runner - Whitehotchillifili ran in the Mares NH Flat Race at the Grand National Meeting, Aintree on Thursday 4th April - great day out


Another big meeting - Ascot on Sunday 31st March - when Horatio Hornblower ran in the 0-150 Chase but unfortunately the ground had dried out and was too quick for him.  At the first fence he collided midair with Josses Hill, unseating Nico de Boinville, and although our jockey (Harry Cobden) stayed in the saddle, Horatio did not enjoy the run and pulled up after a circuit.  He is being entered to run at Ffos Las on Sunday 7th April.


Well we achieved a 3rd with Horatio Hornblower and a 4th with Whitehotchillifili in the Listed NH Flat race at Sandown on Imperial Cup Day, Saturday 9th March.  Picked up decent prize money, just disappointed Whitehotchillifili did not get in the frame, but she came out of the race well and will head to Aintree


Dilson ran nicely at Hereford on Tuesday 26th March, finishing 5th and only just missing out on 3rd.  He picked up some prize money and we were delighted with him.


Whitehotchillifili WON on her racecourse debut in a bumper at Southwell on Tuesday 4th December beating strong opposition - a most impressive performance.  She then ran again carrying a penalty and was only just beaten into 2nd place at Warwick in February.


Outofthisworld is pleasing her trainer Harry Fry.  She should be in action soon.


Queen of the Wind WON twice during November 2018 but was unable to get the hat-trick on Sunday 30th December.


White Hart Lady is biding her time waiting for her chance to shine


Our Arcadio 3-y-o gelding and our Presenting 3-y-o filly are currently pre-training in Ireland and doing extremely well

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.

Outofthisworld lived up to her name with a runaway success in a mares' bumper on her racecourse debut at Market Rasen on Monday.

She travelled notably well through the race before easing into the lead two furlongs out and quickly drawing clear to win decisively by eleven lengths.

Outofthisworld came to us in September from Ireland where she had been broken in and pre-trained by Denis Leahy who has also sent us Just A Sting and Acting Lass in very good condition.

She wasn't over big when she arrived but has grown over the winter and had been going nicely at home with our other four year olds who we like to run in March and April once the ground begins to dry out.

We were happy with her and quite hopeful on Monday without expecting her to hack up by eleven lengths.

Outofthisworld was well bought as a foal for 1,600 euros by Tom Chadney who runs the Chasing Gold Racing Club.

They now look to have a decent prospect on their hands.

We'll see how she comes out of the race before deciding to give her one more run this season. Further ahead Outofthisworld could go for a Listed mares' bumper in the autumn.
