All good news on our horses as the
build up to the new season begins. I have sent photos of Lydia Violet, Mythical
Jewel and Queen Of The Wind and those that have the WhatsApp facility will be
able to see videos I have sent.
Outofthisworld: Doing two canters a day now and has been
schooling over hurdles. Harry Fry thinks she has re-discovered her love of the
game and is bucking and squealing and really well. She will have a first run
over hurdles in early October and if all goes well will then go chasing.
Whitehotchillifili is doing well and is now cantering and
will go hurdling, but will need some cut in the ground. She was very unlucky
last year, but was very impressive and big things are expected of her this
White Hart Lady is making good progress and Harry Fry is
confident she will be very competitive in bumpers this season and should be
ready in October.
Dilson is pleasing Nick Williams and is now doing three
canters a day and has schooled well over hurdles. He will be one of our first
runners and Nick has a race at Exeter pencilled in for the 10th
October. Nick thinks he should be well handicapped and having fully matured
will be a force to be reckoned with.
Horatio Hornblower is back in full training and Nick says
he has never looked better at this time of year and is very full of himself.
He only came in two weeks ago so his first run will not be until November. He
would appear to be very well handicapped so we should have some fun this year
and a return to winning ways.
Queen Of The Wind has completely recovered from her leg
injury and has been on the horse walker daily for the last three weeks and
will come back into full training next Monday. It is always a worry when they
start racing again after an injury, but she too is well handicapped to win
again for us and should add to her 3 wins. She is likely to remain hurdling.
Mythical Jewel has taken well to his training and is doing
very well. Colin says he has a good attitude is very willing and enjoys his
work. He has matured nicely and seems to have the ability to be a good horse.
He should be ready to run in bumpers in the Autumn.
Howdilyoudo is pleasing Jamie Snowden who reports she is
now doing two canters each day, looking really well and in seriously good form
with herself. She will start off in a mares bumper in October all being well.
Lydia Violet is enjoying her training and has settled in
well with Tom George, she is also cantering and another who will start off in
Chasing Gold organised another trip to Ireland this summer
and twenty lucky people went to visit our mares and their offspring maturing at
stud and also saw 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 the main Coolmore stud where the flat
stallions stand and met the most expensive stallion in the world ... Galileo ...
what an amazing horse. We also viewed the Coolmore museum which is an
incredible treat and is where they store all their trophies, we came face to
face with Saddlers Wells, and spent a long time looking at the history of the
stud and their impressive victories. We followed this with a visit to three
of their NH studs to view 17 stallions, and also enjoyed a trip to the Killarney
Racing Festival which was great fun.
