Had a few runners in the week putting some big smiles on faces. Sommer Daisy who is a home bred filly by her owner Douglas Pryde, ran a lovely race first time out at Kempton, she is a big filly that has taken a while to get 'just right' but she ran a stormer finishing 2nd. She will definitely improve a lot for the run.
Papas Dream also ran a nice race at Kempton finishing 4th on his second outing to the sports, it was a hot maiden and he had to also overcome a very bad draw of 14 of 14, but still ran really good. He is still a bit raw but has plenty of size about him, he will make up in to a lovely 3 year old. Our other horses ran their races. Bomb Squad showed his turf form can cross over to A/W and ran a sound race at Wolverhampton on Saturday finishing 2nd he will try and go one better tomorrow back at Wolverhampton again.
We have two runners on Sunday both lining up in a first time handicap at Wolverhampton, hoping they will both run well. They are all in really good form. We had another new inmate today, some of you might remember Hope Again who won first time out at Chepstow a couple of years ago. This filly by Outstrip is his half sister so she could be a nice prospect for next year.
Goffs had its first 'online bidding only' sale this week for yearlings, which went well and well done to them for creating a great opportunity to the vendors to get their horses sold in difficult times. Tattersalls will be doing the same with their next sales so good luck to them as well.
A big weekend of racing with some exciting races forecast at Ascot.
