Since advertising our new yearlings for the 2018 season on our website, our compact Kodiac filly to be trained by Marco Botti has been a huge hit with all ten shares have now been sold.
In October 2017 owners enjoyed a trip to Warwickshire to the beautiful set up of Jamie Lloyd’s yard (Marco’s Bloodstock agent.) The filly has been with Jamie a matter of weeks but is shaping up into a fine looking horse!
The un-named filly is currently learning the basics of riding and racing with lunging and long reining taking place daily (to get her used to the sensation of a jockey’s legs either side of her) and she has walked through a set of open stalls to get her used to these too. All of this she has taken in her stride so it came as no surprise that she already has a rider on her back and confidently leads a small string around the outdoor school. See a video of her progress below:
She is a very forward and intelligent filly who we like a lot here at the farm. She has been straightforward from day one and has been a complete pleasure to break in. She will gradually start to do more ridden exercise, and when she is ready we will take her up onto the gallop where she can enjoy a light canter over 4 furlongs. There is a lot to like about this horse, and I’m delighted that we purchased her for the price we did!

We would thoroughly recommend consider Far Westfield Farm for any of your pre-training needs. It is a beautiful place and Jamie, Roz & their team are most welcoming. Our Owners thoroughly enjoyed their visit here and were extremely well looked after! Visit their website for more information – http://www.jamielloyd.com/
Update November 2018: This filly is now in full training with Marco Botti.
