delighted to say he’s now found his “forever home” ❤
Thanks to Kay Minton for sharing
Delighted again with Elgin and he now heads for the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday March 14th
Another great run by Elgin finished 7th still inexperienced jumping wise he will come on loads again for this run so much to look forward to with this lad.
After the race, Alan King said he was very happy with the run, as the pace of the race alone caught his jumping out and showed his inexperience. Elgin was fine after the race, and Alan will give him an easy week before deciding where to go next. Alan feels the race will have brought him on, as he has never jumped at that speed before
If you’d had told me way back in March that Marsha would become champion sprinter in Europe i’d have given you a funny look but boy was I wrong! She proved that in Paris on Arc weekend…………..
Her full brother Judicial also joined the party by improving out of all recognition he will also mix with the big boys so it will be interesting to see if they can progress further.
Not forgotten the gorgeous Top Tug who ran a great race at Royal Ascot he’s now going to do the job he was bought for – winning at the Cheltenham Festival 2017!!!!
Zest also made history becoming winner 350, Tribute Act too reasons detailed elsewhere on the blog.
Now as we enter the final 48 hours of what has been a truly memorable season members can smile and look forward to 2017 with all the above horses also Soviet Song’s last ever foal Roubles, 5 unraced 2yo’s (yet to be named by members) out of the clubs best broodmares.
Also the club turns 25 years old next February.
Will one of our 2yo become a star like Marsha?? who knows watch this space…………..
The days of me thinking of leaving are well and truly gone!!! 🙂
if you love horseracing in general live in the U.K. & Ireland
Elite have won at the awards before with Soviet Song
