Last night we had one runner at Goodwood.  “Givehimtime” for Mrs T.Brown ran in the 1 Jun 2018Sussex Roof Garden Handicap(Class 5) (0-75, 4yo+) (1m3f218yds) 1m4f Soft1st £5,175.20 2nd £1,540 3rd £769.60 4th £400 5th £400 6th £400 7th £400 8th £400 .  Edward Greatrex gave him a cracking ride to finish in 5th place out of 12.  he ran a a cracker,  he has one cruising speed and actually Edward said if it had been another couple of furlongs he would have been a lot closer.  The jockey and all connections were pleased with him and said we will have a lot of fun with him .

Then we had “Oden” who ran at the Derby meeting yesterday at Epsom.  Oden is owned by Mrs Sarah Cotty and what a fabulous day out we all had, it was only his second run for us and we are learning about him all the time.  He ran in the Investec Out Of The Ordinary Handicap (Class 2) (0-105, 4yo+) (1m4f6yds) 1m4f Good 1st £31,125 2nd £9,320 3rd £4,660 4th £2,330 5th £1,165 6th £585.  It was good ground and the time of the race was only 1 second slower than the Derby.  The Derby time was 2.34 and Odens race was 2.35, he finished about 10 lengths behind the winner.  So for a horse that we now know definitely wants soft ground ( not heavy) ,  he actually ran with credit.  It always a journey with young horses and we had an amazing day out with our friends the owners. ” Oden”  will have a break now and we will look forward to a hurdling campaign in the early Autumn when we get the rain.
