Current Partnership Horses

Yes He Does Syndicate

Does He Know is the first horse we have trained by Alkaased, he is a four year old who won his only start in an English point-to-point. A very happy horse, he always looks to be enjoying his work and likes to get on with things. We hope he will make his debut in October, although we are yet to decide whether to run in a bumper or go straight over hurdles.

The Belle Stars

Yeavering Belle surprised everybody when winning her bumper at Warwick in March in good fashion. She then got stuck in the mud around Southwell before running a huge race to be a narrowly beaten third at Cheltenham in April. With her preference for top of the ground, we took her to Newton Abbot early this season where she jumped very novicey early on before getting the hang of things and winning nicely. She has had a short break and will hopefully be one of the first ready to run and we hope to get her some listed form in novice hurdles this autumn.

Bucks Fizz

Drumreagh is a hardy looking mare who seems to have a very good attitude to life and after being brought down on her debut, she finished second of thirteen in a point-to-point, jumping well and staying on very strongly. We will start off in a mares bumper before Christmas and that will tell us where we will be heading in the future.

The Fiftyshadesofneigh

Donnie Brasco was purchased at the Tattersalls Ireland sale at Cheltenham in February after he made a winning debut in a point to point. An embryonic chaser he looks to have a bright future under rules.

We had hoped to run him in April but due to fast ground he never actually made it onto the racecourse even though we had made entries to run. He is currently out at grass enjoying a holiday and will be coming back into training in July with the view to running over hurdles before going chasing.

The Jury

We purchased Adjourned from the Cheltenham Tatts sale in November for £100,000 and he was very quickly syndicated by members of The Jury.

He had his first run for the syndicate in April where he finished fourth in what worked out to be a competitive bumper around Wincanton. He is currently out at grass and will return to training in July, with the plan to have head straight over hurdles, as he is a very good jumper at home.

Surf on the Turf

The latest new syndicate formed for this very good looking daughter of Milan who we purchased at the Cheltenham Tattersalls Sale in May 2018 after she won here only start in an Irish point-to-point.

Subway Surf is a very athletic mover, who has a great pedigree and will certainly make a fantatsic brood mare once her racing career is over.

Having won her first bumper around Ludlow in January, she followed up impressivley in a bumper around Chepstow this March. Subway Surf is currently enjoying a summer holiday at grass before running over hurdles next season. Albeit, she seems to have a bright future ahead of her.

The No Risk Syndicate

Pond Road is a french bred 4 year old owned by the No Risk Syndicate. A lovely young horse who has shown all the right signs in his work and has already shown great scope jumping at home. He made his racecourse debut in December 2018, finishing an eyecatching 3rd in a bumper at Huntingdon. Pond Road had his first run over hurdles in February, and again around Huntingdon in March. He jumped well and we very much look forward to him progressing this season as he is a horse we very much like for the future.

Pond Road is currently out at grass and will be returning to run in Handicap Hurdles in this coming season.

The Midgelets Partnership

A new small syndicate has been formed for this imposing son of Kap Rock.

Espoir de Romay is a fine big horse with plenty of scope, who will be given time to mature but is in training and has already schooled very well. Making his racecourse debut over hurdles in March at Ludlow, he finished a promising third, jumping well. He is currently out at grass and will be heading over hurdles when he returns to training this season; his future certainly looks to be chasing.

The Second Chancers

Shantou Express was purchased from the Goffs Landrover Sale, a lovely youngster by Shantou, a sire which we like alot. A new syndicate formed for this lovely gelding who comes from a great winning family, Shantou Express made his racecourse debut in March finishing a very good second in a bumper around Ludlow. He is now enjoying a summer break at grass and will probably run in another bumper before heading over hurdles this season.

The Schiaparellis

Lord Apparelli was purchased as an unbroken store from the Goffs Sale back in May 2018. He is a full brother to Prince Llywelyn who we like enormously.

Lord Apparelli showed plenty at home last winter and although we made lots of entries for him he didn't manage to get a run. He is currently out a grass and will return to training in July before starting off the season in a bumper.

Inn for a Penny

Balleticon an athletic son of Arakan caught the eye at the Cheltenham breeze up sales.

Arakan is a very good flat sire producing Gr1 winners Dick Turpin and Toormore but is now also producing quality national hunt horses, including dual bumper winner Thebannerkingrebel. The dam is a point winner and is from the same family as Cheltenham Festival winners Java Fox and Hartstown.

Balleticon is an exciting prospect for the upcoming season, finishing second in his first run in a bumper at Southwell. He has since followed up with another second at Chepstow in November and will be sticking to running in bumpers this season.

The Commodores

Commodore Barry is a fine imposing 5 year old son of Presenting who had two runs in Irish Point to points finishing fourth and second.

In 2017/2018, his first season under National Hunt rules he finished an encouraging fourth in his first bumper at Huntingdon. The current season 2018/2019 he finished third on his first run over hurdles at Huntingdon and then went on to win his second race at Worcester. After a short break he has restarted the season with two wins and a second.

The Red River Syndicate

Red River, a good looking son of Beneficial had one run in an Irish point to point where he finished second. He is a very free and athletic mover and has a good old fashioned English pedigree which includes Champion Hurdler Night Nurse. 

In 2017/2018, his first jump season, Red River won his novice hurdle at Wincanton impressively first time out and followed up with a very good third in a very competitive Grade 2 hurdle at Sandown. He capped off last season with another great win at Musselburgh, this season he goes novice chasing.

Beginning his 2018/19 season with a novices chase at Ludlow, Red River was running a great race when slipping on landing at the 4th last and was pulled up. He is currently out at grass and will return to training in July where he will continue in novice chases.

Moremoneythan Partnership

Vinndication an athletic 4 year old gelding  by the up and coming sire Vinnie Roe, who won the Irish St Leger 4 times, is producing many notable winners including impressive Gr2  winner Neon Wolf and is from the same family as Irish Grand National winner Insure

Vinndication's first season under jump rules was 2017/2018 and quite honestly he has to be one the most progressive horses in training having started off in November where he won a bumper impressivley at Ludlow he then turned his attention to hurdling winning all of his three starts and on his last start he won the prestigeous Sydney Banks hurdle race at Huntingdon.
 
Vinndication has started off the 2018/19 season brilliantly with a novice chasing campaign, winning his first two starts over fences, the latter being a Grade 2 Chase at Ascot. He gave his owners a great day at the Cheltenham Festival, finishing fifth in the JLT Chase.
 
Following a wind operation, Vinndication is currently out at grass with the plan to return to training mid July where he will run in handicap chases, no plans as to what races as of yet.

Stillmoremoneythan Partnership

Arthur's Sixpence is a good looking 4yo by Vinnie Roe (same sire as Vinndication)

He had two runs in english point-to-points where he won and was second under a penalty.

In the 2018/2019 season, Arthur's Sixpence has began his career, finishing a good fourth on his hurdling debut at Huntingdon.

Now that we are in the new season he will be heading novice handicap chasing.

The WOW Partnership

Bandon Roc is a good looking son of Shirocco (sire of Annie Power).

He has a great record over hurdles where he has won four races, his chase career in 2017/2018 was not a huge success although he was second at Wetherby.

A winner of his first chase last winter at Hereford, a horse which has a huge preference for soft ground so, as you can imagine, he had a very disappointing season with very few runs. He is currently out at grass and will be coming back in July and hopefully the winter will produce some soft ground for him to run back over fences.

Blazing Optimists

Blazon is a son of Dansilli who was in pre training with Juddemonte Farms before being bought at Goffs Doncaster sales.

Blazon won a National Hunt Bumper impressivley at Lingfield and his 2017/2018 season he showed good form over hurdles and was placed. In 2018/2019, following a wind operation, Blazon has had nine runs on the all weather over the winter, winning his last three at Kempton and Wolverhampton. He has delighted his owners and will continue on the flat this season.

The Lucky Spinners

Silver Kayf is a stunning free moving son of Kayf Tara.

He has an excellent pedigree being from the same family of Listed hurdle winner His Nibs, Gr.1 second Splendid Thyne and Cheltenham Festival RSA chase winner O’Faolains Boy.

Silver Kayf has shown some very good form in Bumpers and in the 2017/2018 season he won twice over hurdles and was placed. This good looking son of Kay Tara started his chasing career with a promising fifth in a hot novices chase, and we look forward to seeing him out again.

Although he had one run over fences we decided afterwards to go back over hurdles, he has a preference for soft ground and his last run was a promising third at Wincanton. The plan is to run again before he goes out to grass but that could change as we have had a very dry spring.

Younevercall Partnership

Younevercall is a seriously good looking son of Yeats who was placed third on his debut run to the high class Welsh Shadow in a national hunt flat race at Wetherby. He then went on to win on his second start in a national hunt flat race at Southwell.  

Younevercall started his hurdling career with an impressive win at Uttoxeter first time out and ended last season with another good win at Huntingdon. Younevercall has again won very impressively at Kempton and is now rated 143

Younevercall has now won three races over hurdles and is very highly thought of and as a result has a rating of 143.

Younevercall has continued his hurdling career in fine style, finishing second first time out and following up by winning a competitive race around Kempton in November.

He then ran at Ascot in the Long Walk Hurdle in soft ground which did not suit him. Following a wind operation, he returned to run at Sandown on the last day of the season where he absolutely bolted up in the Grade 2 Select Hurdle. An improving hurdler who will be aimed at long distance listed hurdle races this coming winter.
