Well, well, well, could it get any better??? It certainly did with a cracking weekend at Ayr providing two third placed efforts from ROBINROYALE and SOMCHINE – All connections present, not sure if all present and correct following their equine machine’s superb efforts!
And then, to top it all, they go and do it again – WHO ? Who you ask, only Mowgli Sansom and CHESTERFIELD for Rumble Racing in picking up £60,000 prize money for first place in the Scot...Read Full Post »

Afternoon All - well it’s a big week ahead for Team Mullins, off to Ayr to land some decent prizes but back to that in a moment as I must not forget to mention, regrettably, the Annual Charity race at Larkhill this Saturday has been cancelled due to the lack of rain resulting already in the ground being too firm.
Great shame as it's always well supported from people at the yard. This year Philippa Downing was making her 100th appearance, Tracey Keeping was intending to make a vir...Read Full Post »

Well what a week it’s been for Wilsford Racing Stables! COURT AFFAIRS, with Jerry McGrath on board, started the roll off with an impressive bumper debut win at Carlisle and now heads off to the Cheltenham Sales to seek a healthy return. Things then simply got better at Aintree on Grand National Day as immediately after the big race the team of CHESTERFIELD and Dan Sansom – still claiming a valuable 10lbs – took part in the Pinsont Masons amateur and conditional jockey’...Read Full Post »

Morning All – just waved James and Reg off on their world tour. They’ve taken the big lorry with three horses on board to Carlisle for COURT AFFAIRS debut run this afternoon – hopeful.
They are then off to stop over at Haydock tonight (base camp!) before travelling to Aintree tomorrow with LANDIN ( again hopeful) then back to base camp and then travelling back on Grand National Day (Saturday) with...Read Full Post »

Good Afternoon Bloggers
Just back from Lambourn this morning where we gave FERGALL a piece of work up the Jockey Club’s gallops. Dan Sansom on board and the horse moved splendidly, very well and very pleased.
Consequently, no stranger to winning on the flat so all roads for FERGALL lead to Kempton on Saturday 1 April for the Rosbery handicap over 1 mile 3 ...Read Full Post »

Fresh back from a superb four days at Cheltenham. As ever, the pinnacle of the jumps season and the icing on the cake gave us a few runners on the last day. Fantastic racing, featuring most of the best horses in our sport competing in the cauldron of the Cotswolds, splendid.
As usual, the buzz, the craic, it was a fantastic week, topped by being...Read Full Post »

An Ode to my leaving Assistant Trainer, an ode to Paul
Well, it’s finally happened, he’s walked out the door,
Quick change the locks, before he’s back for more.
After four long years, finally I’ll see his back,

Good Morning Bloggers
What a weekend! Can’t really mention the football as one of my biggest owners (who wished to remain anonymous) is a massive Saints fan – took the whole family to Wembley yesterday to see his side get turned over by Manchester United. I’m told by the football scholars in the yard that Saints played superbly, had a goal disallowed and were by far the better team, very unlucky t...Read Full Post »

Fresh back from Warwick with a couple of second placed runners - good runs from both of them - LANDIN equipped himself well, miles clear of the third placed horse and a superb day for Members of the Racing Club, 22 Members in attendance who readily collected at 33/1 on ROMEO AMERICO, also finishing second in a later race on the card.Read Full Post »
