TALKTOMENOW Wins Over Fences & Lolly Retires 🏇
Last week TALKTOMENOW gave the very successful Fitorfat Racing Syndicate another win to add to their collection. This time was the 3m2f novice chase at Fontwell under Gavin Sheehan. This was TALKTOMENOW’s first start over fences in England after winning a point-to-point in Ireland on his very first run. The ground at Fontwell was very soft and quite tough going for the six runner field and they crawled for the first few miles. TALKTOMENOW put in a class round of jumping and battled over the penultimate and last fences to emerge victorious around the figure of eight track. He has shown good form over the smaller obstacles but maybe the bigger are his real forte. Only time will tell but we are very pleased with his initial step up.
LA BAGUE AU ROI
Saying goodbye to La Bague Au Roi will be an emotional time. She has been with us since she was 3 and has taken my career to another level. She has had many battles and for her to keep coming back for more shows what an attitude she had. She has won from 2m to 3m. Her novice chase season was incredible and she beat all before her and gave her owners and Uplands some amazing days both in England and Ireland. It is a huge credit to my staff and especially Ash Price to keep her turning up at the top table time and time again. I have no doubt that she will be a great broodmare!! Thanks Lolly. We will miss you. xxx
