Multiple Winter Winners

Black Corton has won 12 races for us since we bought him from France after finishing second in his maiden hurdle.  Over fences this season alone he has won 8 for Paul Nicholls including a Grade 1 and pictured here winning The Reynoldstown.  He is owned by The Brooks, Stewart Families & Jeremy Kyle and is 7/1 best price for the RSA.

Since we bought Poormans Hill, he has won 6 of his 9 starts for Gordon Elliott over hurdles and fences. He has given his new owners, Vincent & Kathleen Caldwell great fun over the 17/18 season and runs off a featherweight tomorrow in the Leinster National with Jack Kennedy on board.

Recent Graded Winners

Native River has had a quieter season this year after his heroics of 2016/17.  He took the Grade 2 Denman Chase on his seasonal debut and is second favourite for the Gold Cup in which he was 3rd last year.

We bought Chris’s Dreamonly in December at the Cheltenham Sale for Henry De Bromhead.  I had been trying to buy this horse for a year or more and it was particularly rewarding that he should go and win a Grade 3 on his first start for Henry by a whopping 64 lengths!  This strong stayer by Mahler is 12/1 for the Albert Bartlett.

Vision Des Flos came with a big reputation after winning the Goffs Land Rover bumper at Punchestown.  He was pitched in at the deep end in a couple of Grade 2’s in the Autumn but after a more promising effort after Christmas was given a wind-op and sluiced in at Exeter in a listed hurdle by 30 lengths.  He is still unexposed and is a value each way price for the Ballymore Hurdle.

Danny Kirwan

One of the exciting young prospects mentioned in the Racing Post Podcast is Danny Kirwan, no not Fleetwood Mac’s lead guitarist but an unbeaten son of Scorpion who we bought privately out of Pat Doyle’s yard for the de la Hey family after winning his Irish Point in October.  He created a fabulous impression at Kempton on his first run for Paul Nicholls in a bumper, swooping down the outside to win comfortably on his British debut. Cheltenham will come too soon but Aintree is firmly on the agenda.
