We have recently added a new crop of youngsters to the Yard and we are excited to be working with them and to see what they will be capable of as they start their careers. We recently bought two unbroken three year olds at Doncaster sales; a lovely filly out of the listed winning mare […]
The new season beckons, and the anticipation is unbearable as we prepare our old stars for comeback heroics. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, we also have some of the youngsters who are about to start their careers (more on that in the next blog post). Our beloved Coneygree (Max) has made an excellent recovery […]
The sun is finally shining, the horses are on form and we are very much looking forward to Gus (otherwise known as Bloody Nose) making his debut at Warwick next Wednesday, ground permitting. He is a big strong sort by Kalanisi and we are certain he will make a lovely chaser in time. Gus works […]
It was both an emotional and popular victory at the well-attended Hackwood Park point-to-point when our gallant old warrior Carruthers gave Lily her first race win on Easter Monday. She rode a cool race in the competitive Ladies Open as there was a runaway front runner which has in the past been Carruther’s nemesis. However, […]

I write from Coneygree’s box where I have spent the last week making sure our hero gets all the love and attention that he is used to while being assessed and treated by Ian Wright at the Newmarket Equine hospital for a hock injury sustained last week. He is now back in biting good form […]

There’s no doubt that Coneygree’s fairy tale […]
As the team get ready for the 2015/16 National Hunt Season, Sara takes time out of her busy schedule to share her thoughts about the horses in training and how they have been progressing since returning to work. Having enjoyed some downtime in the field all summer, it’s all systems go as Mark and Sara look to emulate the success of last year.
We try to go to as many of the sales as we can, and the Goffs Land Rover Sale is always very well attended, and you can usually find some amazing horses there.
