Wednesday 21st March
Dragons Voice has been declared to make his seasonal debut at Kempton Park on Friday evening. Graham Lee jumps back on board and we look forward to getting his 4yo campaign underway.
Just a few remaining spaces left for our first event of the year to Palace House in Newmarket next Tuesday 27th March. Join us for a private tour, a delicious lunch in the Tack Room Restaurant, see an ROR demonstration from our ex-racer Royal Battalion and have a look around Marco Botti’s fantastic yard! Contact us now to book your places. SB

It wasn’t quite the result we’d hope for from Cilaos Glace at Kempton unfortunately, and his keenness (for over a mile!) surprised us all! He will be ridden differently next time with a cross noseband and earplugs firmly fitted.
New boys Alternate Route and our 2yo Epaulette colt arrived at Gary Moore’s today ready to start full-training. It’s great to have them here and we are delighted shares are selling so well. Join our open morning this Saturday 24th March to see them both in action – all welcome. EA.
Friday 16th March
Cilaos Glace has been declared to run at Kempton Park tomorrow in the 5pm bumper, Josh Moore takes the ride. The horse’s debut has been a long time coming and we can’t wait to see him in action!
Other runners coming up include Dragons Voice at Kempton next Friday, and Raven’s Lady also looks set to run Good Friday on AW Championship Day. EA.
Monday 12th March
It is Cheltenham Eve and we are so excited for a week of thrilling National Hunt action! Best of luck to all horses, trainers, jockeys and connections this week, especially to the Moore family who head into the Festival with a decent hand. A staff day out to Cheltenham is also planned for later in the week – Guiness Village watch out!
With jump action in the air, we are excited to have an entry for the Gary Moore trained Cilaos Glace. He has been entered to make his racecourse debut in the NHF race over 2m at Kempton Park on Saturday. SB
Saturday 10th March
We had a fabulous morning at Philip Hide’s yard today as Onehelluvatouch, Dragons Voice and Zambeasy all looked great as they were put through their paces! All 3 horses are on track for returns to action in March/April (read below their race plans.)
Monday 5th March
Waikiki Waves holds two entries this weekend at Hereford and Warwick but if it’s heavy ground he won’t run (Josh Moore feels 2m6f+ is just too much in heavy ground for this young horse.) There are some ideal options coming up later in the month.
We have a visit to Philip Hide’s yard this Saturday 10th March and head of this we are pleased to have some race dates for our owners:
3-time winner Dragons Voice is likely to race at either Kempton Park on 23rd March or aim for the £50,000 open handicap race at Bath on Good Friday, Onehelluvatouch could line up on Easter Monday at Plumpton, and Zambeasy will return to his winning track Windsor on 16th April. SB
Saturday 3rd March
Unfortunately Velvet Revolution is a non runner at Chelmsford this evening. He will now be prepped to run fresh at the start of the turf.
Good Luck Charm and Guns of Leros have now returned to Cisswood Stables for full training and both seem pleased to be back. Videos of the in action of the gallops will follow soon. SB
Tuesday 27th February
Lots of snowfall around the office this morning, but we are hoping it won’t scarper our plans for the week ahead!
We have two runners lined up – Velvet Revolution has been entered in the 2m handicap race at Chelmsford on Saturday evening, whilst Waikiki Waves holds an entry at Lingfield Park on Monday. SB
Monday 26th February
We would like to send our deepest condolences to the Gary Moore team, Owner Nick Peacock and everyone else involved with the lovely Ubak who was fatally injured yesterday. A cracking horse who raced and was placed at some of the most prestigious NH meetings, and was a popular winner of the Grade 3 hurdle race on Grand National Day in 2016.
Saturday 24th February
Sisania looked fabulous at our owner visit this morning. She has settled into her new yard well, hasn’t lifted a hoof and all in all seems very happy. She has now commenced fast work on the gallops (see above pic) and looked to enjoy stretching her legs a shade quicker this morning. She is on course for a return to hurdles this March, and we look forward to her debut for her new yard.
Cilaos Glace continues to make encouraging yet steady progress with Gary Moore. The horse has done plenty of bassline fitness and has now been given the green light to step his work up a gear. This willing horse seems pleased to be doing so and we are keeping everything tightly crossed that he will make his bumper debut next month. SB
Monday 19th February
We had another encouraging stable visit to see our 2-year old colt by Epaulette on Saturday. He looks stronger and moved well as he enjoyed two hack canters on the all weather gallop. He looks almost ready for the next stage of his career now – we can’t wait! See his latest pre-training video here!
Due to the heavy ground Waikiki Waves was not declared for Lingfield today. SB
Wednesday 14th February
It was a shame not to see Velvet Revolution finish closer at Wolverhampton on Monday. The horse appeared a little ungenuine at times and it was disappointing to see this side of his personality once again. However he still ran well amongst decent horses to finish 4th. He may go to Chelmsford on 3rd March next.
A quiet period has evidently done Waikiki Waves the world of good as he was as fresh as a daisy this morning, and has therefore been entered at Lingfield on Monday. We will need to keep a close eye on the ground however. SB
Monday 12th February
Velvet Revolution reunites with Josephine Gordon at Wolverhampton for the 6.40pm race tonight. They were a winning combination last time and with a little luck on our side, we are hoping for another decent performance.
We have a stable visit this Saturday 17th February to see our 2yo colt by Epaulette. He has resumed light ridden exercise in preparation for joining Gary’s yard in early March. Join our visit – a few 5% shares remain! SB
