Shanty Town is a lovely athletic individual who was placed 2nd on his only start in an Irish point to point at Tinahely in October 2013, only beaten a head before running very promisingly in three events on British soil for Suzy Smith including in two Novice hurdles throughout 2014.
Shanty Town joined us here at Tyre Hill Racing Stables in early November 2016 making his debut for us at Wetherby in early February 2017 where he finished a very pleasing 3rd in the totepoolliveinfo.com Novices' Hurdle and was placed on another two occasions last season.
Sheldon Cooper arrived with us in November 2018 having previously run both on the flat & over hurdles in Ireland prior to his latest run where he finished 2nd at Chelmsford in October 2018.
An athletic type by Excellent Art, Sheldon Cooper made his debut for us back on the flat at Wolverhampton in December 2018 running with promise to finish 5th with only 3 lengths covering the first five home. We now look forward to seeing him progress for his new owners throughout the winter months.
Spencer Lea is a very good looking gelding who arrived with us in October 2018 having previously been a dual winner over hurdles in 2014 & 2016.
A son of popular Sire Overbury, Spencer Lea was also placed 3rd on his sole start over fences in October 2016 & made his yard debut for us at Market Rasen on Boxing Day 2018. Although pulling up that day, he is entitled to come on a lot for that run, having been his first time back on the racecourse in over two years. We now look forward to seeing Spencer Lea continue to run throughout the season.
This compact horse joined us in February 2017 and has always shown a good attitude to his work.
This son of Swiss Spirit made his racecourse debut at Windsor in June 2017 finishing 6th and ran with plenty of promise on several occasions before getting his head in front for the first time to land the Bet toteexacta At betfred.com Nursery Handicap at Chelmsford in December.
Veiled Secret arrived with us in November 2017 having previously been in training on the flat with Sir Mark Prescott.
A previous winner over 1m6f, this son of Teofilo is a fine upstanding horse who made his hurdling debut at Doncaster in February 2018 finishing a very pleasing 5th in a field of 14 runners & was placed in the first four on a further two occasions at Ludlow last season.
Veiled Secret enjoyed a summer break before making a return to the track in October 2018 over hurdles & following a couple of runs at Chepstow & Exeter he enjoyed a spin on the flat at Lingfield on his latest outing in December. We now look forward to seeing him continue to run throughout the season & hope he can bring his owners Clan Mcneil lots of success.
Zee Man is a 2014 gelding by Soldier of Fortune who first arrived with us in the latter part of 2015.
This son of Soldier Of Fortune made his racecourse debut at Hereford in December 2017 where despite running a little greenly, finished a very pleasing 3rd under Trevor Whelan in a NH flat race & was 5th on his next appearance at Kempton, in very competitive company. Zee Man went onto finish 2nd in the Smarkets Maiden Open National Hunt Flat Race at Wincanton in March 2018 before his final run of the 2017/18 season came at Warwick where he finished 14th.
Back in full training this season, Zee Man pulled up at Chepstow on his seasonal reappearance in November but put up a much more pleasing performance next time out finishing 5th at Exeter in December 2018 on just his 2nd start over hurdles.
We now look forward to watching him progress throughout the season as he continues to learn his job over obstacles.
