The Ball Is Rolling
Work On The Grass
Due to the good amount of rain we have had over the last few weeks we are able to get onto the grass gallops. On Sunday we took a few of the horses to do a piece of work up the Back Of The Hill. It was fantastic to see them go so well.
3YO by ROCK OF GIBRALTAR out of PRINCESS SOFIA
SALAMANCA SCHOOL is a good sized 3yo who did well in his 2yo campaign. He ran three times, where his form figures were – 3,2,1. He finished with a rating of 79! He also has form in soft and heavy ground. His 3yo season was not as productive, but he did finish second on his final start over 1m3f at Goodwood. Tess and I think he has the size and scope to make a hurdler and after having him vetted we feel there are a few things we could do to improve him. He has settled in well at Uplands and I look forward to getting to know him.
