20th April – Stable News












Friday 20th April

We had two runners at Fontwell.  “Swift Native” ran in the 2:50Fontwell 20 Apr 2018 Sussex Manures Equine Race Solutions “Puckamuck” Novices’ Hurdle(Class 4) (4yo+) (2m5f164yds) 2m5½f Good 11 hurdles.  She was ridden by “Joshua Moore” for ” The Nick Gifford Racing Club”.  She unfortunately pulled up after really running in snatches.  It is only her second run on the track for us, she is very green and slightly nervous and the delay at the start and two falling at the first probably did not help her cause.  However she needs to show something on the track similar to she is showing at home.  So she will be out again in two weeks and we will possibly try her in a hood to calm her nerves a bit and see if we can get her to finish a race.  We truly hope she is much better than she has so far shown on the race course.  She did win a P2P in Ireland , so we know she has some ability.  

Our second runner was “Project Mars” who was given an amazing ride by Jockey Tom Cannon in the 20 Apr 2018 Gliaubertas Family Handicap Hurdle (Div II) (Class 5) (0-100, 4yo+) (2m5f164yds) 2m5½f Good 11 hurdles to finish a just beaten 2nd.  It is always frustrating to finish second.  However the blinkers definitely helped and it was great to see “Project Mars ” ran a great race.
