MARTHA BRAE Wins Over Hurdles
Last week one of our mares’, MARTHA BRAE, put in a great effort to win the 2m3f Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Fontwell. Adrian Heskin took the ride and they were prominent throughout before kicking into the lead three out. However, the soft ground made the stamina test even stronger and they were headed on the run in. MARTHA BRAE showed real tenacity, battling back and crossing the line in front of her competitor. This is only the fourth start of her career after also winning a bumper last season. She looks to be quite talented and hopefully we can get her back out soon. It is fantastic for her owner/breeder Mrs R Vaughan to have a successful mare who she can look forward to future offspring from once she has finished her racing career in years to come.
He is a very nice horse who has had two progressive runs in bumpers this season, finishing 3rd and 2nd. He could win his next bumper, or progress to run over hurdles; he has schooled very well at home. Genuine reason for sale, we would love to keep him in the yard if possible.
On the 6th of December our media manager, Dougie, got married near Faringdon. Incredibly it was during the only dry spell of weather we have had in the last few months and the rain managed to hold off. There may have been a couple of hangovers at Aintree the next day too.
