A New Arrival

This entry was posted on 2015-03-19 by Caroline.

After several disturbed nights watching and waiting Mrs Fir, a lovely winning mare by Luso that Pat trained, finaly produced her foal. A lovely strong bay filly by Dream Eater. He stands at Vauterhill Stud in Devon and is a very correct grey by Night Shift. He was an extremely successful horse over a mile when trained by Andrew Balding and we are hoping he may inject a little speed into Mrs Fir, who has a stout staying pedigree being out of a Deep Run mare. Breeding is always a lottery but it will be great fun seeing her develop.

Our runners this week were a little disappointing, Strawberry Hill just didn't handle the drying, sticky ground at Taunton as well as we thought and although i still think he stays 3m, he will need some genuine good ground to help him. Judge Davis finally had conditions to suit, but after reaching for fence 3 and brushing through the top he never really travelled and finished down the field. La Madonnina however relished the better ground and jumped really well for her first time over fences. She needs to drop back to 2m5f or 2m6f but obviously enjoyed herself and fences may bring about the improvement we have all been hoping for.

Some of our babies are comming close to running in bumpers soon. Quarryman (pictured Left) and our as of yet unamed 4yr old (pic right) by Marienbard went with Knight Ofthe Realm for an away gallop at Gask's today and are really comming on well.

Regal Flow has entries at Fontwell on Saturday and Taunton on Monday. With 3 of Pat's pointers due to run at The Mendip Point to Point at Ston Easton on Sunday we have a busy weekend ahead.

The Mendip Point to Point is held just north of Shepton Mallet on the A37 postcode BA3 4DH. It is a great meeting and a fun family day out, with lots of trade stands and cracking racing too. Well worth a visit - just remeber it is the Mendip so wrap up warm!
