We're pleased to be able to bring a few pictures from Red Paladin's recent win at Doncaster. The son of Red Clubs has come out of his latest win in good form and is likely to be out and racing again soon to build on his latest strong form. Red Paladin is pictured above making his winning move under Neil Callan, and again below as owners greet him in the paddock. The in-form handicapper is likely to be back out and racing by the end of the month.
It was great to see Red Paladin back to winning ways at Doncaster on Thursday, as the imposing son of Red Clubs scored under Neil Callan. After travelling quite well in behind, Neil had Red Paladin well positioned before making his effort in the final quarter mile. Despite encountering some traffic problems the four-year-old was brought through to lead inside the final furlong, before battling on to repel the well backed runner-up in the 14-strong field. Red Paladin was winning his third race for his owners and his second at Doncaster, following on from last year’s August win on Town Moor. He received a great reception from his delighted owners who then enjoyed an interesting debrief with Neil Callan. It’s great to see Red Paladin back in top form. He’s sure to be out again soon to try and build on this very solid win. We’ll have more news, pictures, and reaction to Paladin’s win on line soon.
We’re delighted to be able to announce details of our next available syndicate. The horse in question is a three-year-old filly called Kiss Of Spring who will be based with David O’Meara. She’s bred in the purple and made a small fortune in the sales ring. We’re fortune to have the chance to offer her on a lease basis to our owners and she’s already very popular with half the places taken in the syndicate before we managed to get her details on line! More details about Kiss Of Spring, who is pictured below, can be found on David’s Available Horses page.
An exciting two-year-old destined for better things, so said the media after Fast Act's taking win at Carlisle on Wednesday, and we're delighted to be able to bring you some pictures from Carlisle. Fast Act, pictured above crossing the line, has come out of the race really well and is now being trained with the £250,000 Weatherbys Super Sprint in mind. The DBS Premier recruit not only bagged the winners prize money at Carlsile, but also the £10,000 Racing Post Yearling Bonus for his owners. We're looking forward to more exciting days ahead with Fast Act, who also has an entry in a valuable race at York's Ebor meeting.
There were some broad grins in the winners’ enclosure at Carlisle today as Fast Act came home a comfortable winner of the five furlong maiden under Jamie Spencer. The success was achieved in good style, with the young colt, pictured above on his naming day at Hambleton, travelling well after overcoming a wide draw before putting his seal on the race when given the authority to go forward by Jamie, who was able to ease his mount down in the closing stages. Jamie and Fast Act received a great reception as they came in as owners revelled in the success and the fact their horse had just won them the £10,000 Racing Post Yearling Bonus. As the champagne flowed in the winners room attention turned to the future for Fast Act, who Kevin will now intends to aim at the £250,000 Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury next month. It should be a very exciting day for all concerned as Fast Act competes in one of the most valuable sales races of the year. Fast Act is yet another horse to advertise the affordable quality Kevin sources our owners from the DBS Premier Sales. We’ll have pictures, and more reaction, on line from his win soon.
The sunshine was glorious and the company fantastic as owners got together at Hambleton on Saturday for Sir Domino’s syndicate day. Owners initially gathered at the historic Hambleton Inn, opened especially for the syndicate in the morning, and enjoyed refreshments prior to the events of the day. Bright sunshine drenched guests as everyone looked ahead to getting to see the main attraction of the day, Sir Domino. Soon after, owners were driven to the gallops to see the exciting two-year-old canter on Kevin’s woodchip gallop, and he impressed on lookers as he stretched out under Kevin’s talented apprentice Kevin Stott. Sir Domino looked superb with the spectacular back drop of the Hambleton Hills behind him which made for some fantastic photos on the gallops. There was some good banter on the gallops and after trotting steadily down in front of his owners the two-year-old son of Evasive then headed back into the yard ahead of meeting his owners at closer quarters for those all important photos. After a refreshing and much-needed wash off Sir Domino joined owners in Kevin’s front yard, just a few metres from the on-looking French Derby winner The Grey Gatsby, where photographer Louise Pollard ensured owners had a nice picture of themselves and Sir Domino. Sir Domino was reasonably well behaved in front of the lens but as an enthusiastic young colt certainly kept everyone on their toes before heading off to enjoy a well earned roll and relax in his box. After that owners toured Kevin’s yard as owners got the chance to catch up with their other horses and new owners got the chance to see and find out more about Kevin’s impressive facilities. Following a tour of the yard it was back the Hambleton Inn where drinks and a fine meal were enjoyed amid much chat and laughter as new owners to Hambleton were given the warmest of welcomes. After lunch owners raised a glass of champagne to Sir Domino as attention turned to the future. Early suggestions suggest the exciting individual could be out and racing in the second half of July. He certainly looks a young horse to look forward to.
Thursday was a magical day for Hit The Jackpot's syndicate as their horse scored a famous success at Ripon on Ladies day. There were some great scenes at Yorkshire's garden racecourse, and we're delighted to be able to bring you some images from Thursday below. Another exciting day is now planned as Hit The Jackpot firmly has the £150,000 John Smith's Cup at York firmly on his agenda.
Royal Ascot is perhaps the hardest meeting of the year to win at but success at the meeting was always on the cards for David O’Meara and Louis The Pious provided a first Royal winner when taking the Buckingham Palace Stakes to give David yet another feather in his cap. Last year’s Ayr Gold Cup runner-up stayed on strongly under Silvestre de Sousa to win, with Watchable, David’s other runner in the race, finishing close up in third. Speaking after the race David said "I'm absolutely delighted. We ran two in the race and the other guy (Watchable) has finished third." The win just adds to David’s seemingly ever-improving training record, having started training just four years ago the man with the Midas touch has already amassed 270 winners, amassing nearly £3 million worth of prize money. Early success at Group level marked David down as a special talent and his year-on-year improvement continued last year when amassing his first century of winners last year. That was a fine achievement and success at Epsom’s Derby meeting and now Royal Ascot has maintained the impressive momentum in 2014. David has shown time and again he can achieve quite staggering results, often with cheaply sourced horses. We’re delighted for our talented young trainer who continues to provide us with excellent results.
It’s been an amazing few weeks for Hit The Jackpot’s syndicate and their horse provided another fine performance at Ripon on Thursday when winning the feature race on Ladies Day. Always travelling well under Danny Tudhope the five-year-old took it up over a furlong out before staying on strongly to run right away from his toiling rivals to take his earning to date this year to over £18,000. There were some great scenes in the winners enclosure after the race when talked turned to the £150,000 John Smith’s Cup, a race Hit The Jackpot may well head for at York on his next start. Wherever Jackpot is seen next, he looks sure to continue to make his presence felt for his owners, who are pictured below, savoruing the moment after his second win of the year. We’ll have pictures and more reaction on line soon.
Things are gathering pace all the time for those owners involved in Sir Domino, and it’s now just a fortnight till his owners will be getting together at the stables for his syndicates day at the stables. The son of Evasive, pictured above on the gallops, has settled into work with Kevin like a duck to water and is coping really well with his training regime at the moment. At his current rate of progress it looks likely the well bred colt will be in racing action in July as he bids to further Kevin’s amazing record with his breeze up recruits. Astaire, a Group 1 winner and last year’s champion sprint two-year-old, Hot Streak, a two-time Group 2 winner who looks set to challenge to for top sprint honours this year and The Grey Gatsby, a Group 1 winner in the French Derby last weekend, have all advertised Kevin’s amazing prowess with his purchases from the breeze up sales. It is of course early days for this well-related colt but Sir Domino’s owners are entitled to dream given the promise he showed in his breeze and his exercise at home. We’ll have reaction and pictures from the day on line soon after the event. In the meantime, more details on Sir Domino can be found on our available horses page.
