Ayr 18th July
Royal Duchess ridden by Adam Macnamara was making a quick reappearance after her win at this track a week ago, all things being equal she didn’t run a bad race but nothing really went her way as it had done previously and it may well have been a bit soon for her to be back on the track. Remember Rocky also ridden by Adam Macnamara ran a great race, he finished in third place staying on well at the end of the race, he was the first horse off the bridle and looked like he may struggle to stay with them but he dug really deep and stayed on fantastically over the last couple of furlongs for a well deserved place. The trip was short of his ideal distance anyway but by the way he kept going there looks to be no reason he won’t stay further in time.
We celebrate in style – Normile style!!
A Royal Delight
CWOW – what a day Monday was at Ayr!!!!!!!!! Royal Regent and Royal Duchess both ridden by Joe Doyle, (who was using his three pound claim for a final day) both won their races. Reggie was running in the one mile two furlong handicap and he never saw a rival, Joe used his stamina and when there was no early pace decided to make all and was still pulling away from the others at the line. Duchess was running in the seven furlong handicap had to work a bit harder but once she got a space she charged to the front and perhaps won with a little in hand, ears pricked!! A truly magical day for our little yard, however the screaming done at the track racegoers could have been forgiven for thinking there were millions of us there!! Fantastic for Steve Dick who not only owns but bred them both, hoping that he puts the mare back in foal soon!!
This Thyne Jude ridden by Grant Cockburn was stepping up the three miles today, but unfortunately the rain came and the good going we were hoping for became soft, very soft!! She still ran a great race to finish in fifth place but a lack of pace throughout the race didn’t help her when they sprinted up the home straight. However still another very promising run from her!!
