As the leaves are changing colour and the days are getting shorter meaning that Autumn is well & truly upon us, so too is the NH season really getting into full swing now here at Tyre Hill Racing Stables.
The horses have continued to run well during the transition from Summer through to Autumn while the real Winter horses are awaiting some much needed rain before they really show their best.
Roman Flight is a horse that has been taking full advantage of the recent dry spell and was last seen landing the totequadpot Four Places In Four Races Handicap Chase at Stratford earlier in October. The Antonius Pius gelding will now line up in the Byrne Group Handicap Chase (Listed Race) tomorrow (Saturday 29th October) at Ascot with Noel Fehily taking the ride and we hope he can give another good performance.
Fled Or Pled is another that has been running well of late. After losing his maiden tag at Towcester back on 5th October he ran well again last time out to finish 3rd in the Visit timeform.com/freebets Handicap Hurdle at Bangor earlier this week and he is sure to continue to progress throughout the season as he settles further in his races.
Another who has been running consistently on the dry ground is Doitforjoe. With a win and a further three placed efforts to his name since July he is likely to head to Hereford now on Monday (31st October) to take advantage of his preferred going conditions before the inevitable Winter rain sets in.
My Mo would also fit into this category. He is declared to run in the 32Red On The App Store Novices´ Hurdle at Huntingdon on Sunday and has been enjoying the fast ground to land one victory and three 2nds in succession of late. He is not a lover of soft ground so it would be great to see him in the Winner’s enclosure once more before his likely Winter break.
Looking forward to the weeks ahead we will be excited to see the likes of Marquis Of Carabas, Cyclop & Norse Light continue to run as well as Doctor Phoenix, Final Nudge & Brunel Woods who will be set to make their seasonal debuts as soon as the rain begins to fall.
As well as being busy with runners most days, David’s attentions are also very much focused on the new stable yard that continues to progress. The outer brickwork is now complete and the internal stables began to take shape this week. With only fixtures & fittings left to put in place now alongside some landscaping & the installation of a new horse walker & wash down bays, there is definitely an air of excitement in the yard at the prospect of being able to begin moving horses into their new state-of-the-art housing in the very near future.
