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.

SALAMANCA SCHOOL

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.

HERAKLES

2017 Bay Gelding – Saddler Maker x Une Histoire
HERAKLES is by a top stallion in Saddler Maker, he has a good pedigree with plenty of winners in it. He is a good moving horse with size and scope and has learnt plenty since arriving with us. I am sure he has a bright future ahead.
