Flat season update 2017
02 September 2017
An update from our Manager Mick Towell about many of our clients having a very successful season including;
Clive Cox - Heartache wins at Royal Ascot in impressive style taking group 2 Queen Mary stakes and 2 runners up with Profitable and Harry Angel very close in their Group 1 targets. Harry Angel then beats the star sprinters at Newmarket to win the Group 1 July Cup, a fantastic training and riding performance, this horse surely heading for bigger success into the Autumn
Charlie Hills - Magical Memory returned to form winning the Group 3 Hackwood Stakes at Newbury and running into a place at Deauville in the Group 1 Prix de Maurice d'Gheets. Exciting sprinter Baattash arrived in the big time after winning the Group 2 King George Stakes at Goodwood to go with his earlier win at Sandown earlier this summer. Hopefully he will bag a Group 1 race before the end of the season.
Brian Meehan - exciting 2 yr old Barraquerro wins the Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood for the Sangster family, great to see those famous colours in the winners enclosure, this horse at Manton in great form at present
Harry Dunlop - Robin of Navan continues to pick up Group races recently winning the Group 3 La Coupe Longines at Chantilly
Ed Walker, Sylvester Kirk and Brendan Powells stables - all continue in good form picking up plenty of prizes. Ed Walker seems to have settled well into his new surroundings and Sylvester Kirks 2 y olds are running well this summer. Long may this continue.
Nicky Henderson - Has been raiding in France this summer taking some valuable prizes with Fixe le Cap taking a listed race and L'Ami Serge winning the Grade 1 French Champion Hurdle at Auteil (Paris), great performances from both horses
Roger Charlton - Decorated Knight winning brilliantly in early summer at the Curragh, in the Tattersalls Gold Cup
