Lucy Normile and the team have been training racehorses from the tranquil surroundings of Duncrievie, Glenfarg and have gradually built up a smart, efficient and friendly racing yard, though lots of hard work and dedication.
Both STROBE and BADGED have been entered to run at Bangor on Friday 19th August.
BADGED, STROBE and THIS THYNE JUDE, have all been entered to run at Perth on Saturday 20th August.
REMEMBER ROCKY has been entered to to run at Carlisle on Monday 22nd August.
Son Of Feyan has been entered to run at Kelso on Wednesday 14th September. Hopefully there isn’t too much rain coming!
Royal Duchess has been entered to run back at her favourite track on Thursday 15th September!!
Remember Rocky, ridden by Doigie Costello ran a blinder of a race – he really is Mr Consistent, he finished in fourth place only beaten three lengths. Dougie gave him a great ride and if only he could get some help from the handicapper he would be winning again, and unfortunately in class 5 races he does struggle a little, hopefully we can find a class 6 race for him and he can get the win that he really deserves!!!
Perth – A Winner
This Thyne Jude repaired everyone with their patience that they have given her and she WON her first race, and won it very bucket too. She looked terrific in the parade ring and Grant Cockburn gave her a really very very good race as the race wasn’t quite a simple as it might be, she had a loose horse to contend with amongst other things, but seemingly only having to jump the last two hurdles before he first win – my eyes were right shut, however she WON, with plenty in hand by four and a half lengths!!!! Strobe ridden by Adam Nicol ran a cracking race to finish in third place, the softer ground didn’t help him so it was boring that it had rained in the morning.
Royal Regent ridden by Joe Fanning couldn’t quite keep up the ferocious gallop that was set in a higher grade of race but nonetheless wasn’t beaten far. Remember Rocky ridden by Adam Macnamara ran another fantastic race but just was hampered at the wrong time but ran on strongly to be fourth, Mr Consistent.
Super Strobe – super second
The old boy Strobe, ridden by Joanna Mason turned back the clock in the two mile handicap and ran a blinder to finish in a great second place. He was four times older than some of the runners, and he won BTO – he loves the cameras and thinks all racegoers are there to see him!! We had a small champagne celebration. 🍾🍾🍾
