Pre Christmas Fun

This entry was posted on 2015-12-14 by Caroline.

Last week was a quite one generally with just 3 runners, Jack By The Hedge made his debut over fences at Fontwell and finnished 3rd in the most atritional conditions. His jumping has always been very confident but in ground that wouldn't really suit any horse he was exceptional and James Best was very pleased with him. He will hopefully run again between Christmas and New Year.

Darkest Before Dawn had his first run for 18 months at Taunton and blew away a few cobwebs jumping and travelling well for a long way before tiring. I couldn't have picked a hotter bumper for Denny Kerrell's debut, he behaved perfectly and stayed on well at the end though. He will come on well for the run in both experience and fitness, he is sure to give his new owners plenty of fun!

We had a very exciting new jockey making her debut this weekend - Izzi, my assistant and secretary was having her first ride in a point to point at Larkhill on her own horse Rotablade. Luckily there was no racing so all the staff, friends and relations were able to go support. With a foot perfect round of jumping Izzi lead all the way in the Ladies Open to make a winning debut. What a thrilling achievement! We will have lots to celebrate at the Christmas party on Wednesday now!

Knight Of The Realm runs on Saturday at Ascot to start the ball rolling over Christmas.
