Sonnetina and Eagles Dare were up on the gallops on Saturday morning for their owners to view, along with the un-named Mastercraftsman gelding and Bobby Kennedy. Some photos of them in action are posted in the Gallery. A lunch was also an enjoyable overture for the season !

With February having been the wettest on record, racing opportunities have been very limited for the horses schooling over hurdles as the ground has been mostly atrocious and many meetings abandoned. All are awaiting better ground So it has been a very quiet month in terms of racecourse action, with only a trio of performers on the all weather. Nonetheless the yard has been very busy indeed, in readiness for the flat season ahead. Up on the gallops last week Sue Huntingdon was on hand to get some action shots - as a number of two year olds were put through their paces along with a few of their more senior stablemates.
A selection of photos can be found on the Gallery pages.
Located on the Berkshire Downs in the famous racing village of West Ilsley, this picturesque and tranquil racing yard with some of the finest gallops in the country is a fantastic place to have a horse in training. Pictured right is Miss Marjurie winning Group 3 at Haydock 30th May 2015
