IT would be a bit of an understatement to say we didn’t expect Seven Eye Bridge to win the way he did at Perth on Thursday - but it was great to see!
It was an unorthodox Perth ride going so wide and we didn’t think he’d be able to do that on good ground, so it was amazing to watch and it really gives us plenty of excitement for him going chasing next season.
He’s had a good year, winning first time up at Carlisle and his form is stacking up nicely so there’s plenty to look forward to with him.
Do Not Disturb (top picture) ran another good race in the novice handicap and just bumped into one in the Peter Bowen horse. We were well chuffed with him and he’s another with plenty to look forward to.
Famous Moment ran at Perth today (apologies for not getting the blog up before the race!) but found the ground too quick and he’ll be better back on softer and over further in future.
That was the last runner of the season for us, we’ve ended up with 21 winners which is only four shy of our best-ever total and it's so satisfying to be back in good form after the last couple of years.
Given the fact racing was stopped for a while and there were a lot of northern cancellations in winter, we’re delighted to get to the number we’ve got and the biggest thing is we have so many nice young horses to look forward to in the autumn.
We’ll have a few summer horses to run over the next few months and keep the yard ticking over but although one season ends, it doesn't take long in starting up again with meetings at Ayr and Kelso before Perth kicks in again in May.
Here’s a video of Famous Moment having a pop in the indoor school on Thursday.
