A Christmas Treat!

This entry was posted on 2015-12-22 by Caroline.

Well we had our Christmas treat early this year in the form of Knight of the Realm (pictured left) at Ascot on Saturday. He has really turned a corner since he won at Exeter last month and at Ascot he proved again that he is developing in to a smart stayer. Ian Popham gave him a peach of a ride and he was only beaten by a well handicapped horse. He would have prefered the ground even softer but it was testing enough that his stamina came in to the fore. The plan was to send him chasing after Ascot but that plan is now under review and I will look for another staying handicap for him. Ascot really look after their owners, Heather and Chris Dunn who bred Knight ofthe Realm and his syndicate had a thoroughly enjoyable day!

Also at Ascot our yardmans son, Arron Butterfield was presented with his prize for coming 3rd in the Champion Headware points pony racing series, this was a great achievement as it was his first season on his new pony Blaze'n'Daze.

We are having a quiet week before Christmas but will be having plenty of runners between Christmas and New Year. Entries for boxing day include Darkest Before Dawn, Jack By The Hedge and Prince Mahler (pictured getting in to the christmas spirit!) .

I would like to wish all my owners, supporters and blog readers a very Happy Christmas and all the luck in 2016. A very special thank you goes to my team at Larkinglass who have worked so hard all year to produce the horses fit and ready to win for their owners.
