A stable star, winning 9 of his 41 races in top company with total career earnings of over £250,000. Winner of 2 Group 3 races over 7 furlongs and a mile.
He went on to have a career as a stallion, and is currently fit and well at 25 years of age living at Norton Grove Stud in Malton.
A winner of 3 races, and a career spent racing against the fastest sprinters in training, she was probably one of the quickest horses out of the stalls the stable has ever trained.
A vey speedy family, we still train her sister Daffy Jane, a 4 time winner.
She is pictured here, ignoring the camera, with her first foal by Ifraaj, and she is currently in foal to the speedy Dark Angel.
RODEO STAR & PURITAN
Rodeo Star in blue, and Puritan, both prolific winners for the stable, living together in Boston Spa and very happy to receive a visit from Nigel.
Rodeo Star won over Hurdles and the flat, with many big race victories including the Chester Cup, the Tote Gold Trophy at Newbury and the Queens Prize at Kempton.
Puritan also won on the flat and over obstacles.
In a 49 race career, he won twice on the flat, six times over hurdles, and four times over fences.
Without a doubt they have both earned their long and happy retirement.
Aged 32 and 30 respectively, they have a combined age greater than that of the trainer!
Teetotal was a stable favourite and got his head in front 5 times during the 5 years he was with us.
He left us to go flapping in Scotland where he raced with some success.
He is now residing in a field near Castle Douglas with Shetland ponies for company, relaxing and enjoying his well earned retirement.
Downland had a long career, racing over 9 seasons and winning 8 of his 75 races.
He eventually went into retirement as a 10 year old and is still enjoying it in good health at the age of 23.
Etienne Gerard was with us for 5 years and in that time won 5 of his 52 races. He was the first winner for current Jockey David Egan at Windsor.
He provided lots of owners with plenty of fun, and has clearly had no problems adapting to retirement!
He now lives in North Yorkshire and under the guidance of Amy Tinkler, is embarking on a career in endurance.
Allux Girl only had a short stay with us and a career of 6 races, and has proved far more suited to a career as a polo pony.
One of the smallest racehorses we have ever trained was Pony, which the name does suggest.
She is now being trained up for Mounted Games in which she has been part of the Lancashire open team at the English championships this year.
Bright Sun was with us for 5 years and was the winner of 5 races.
On his retirement he moved in with Helen, who had ridden him throughout that time since he was 3 years old.
He retired at 8 and went on to have a very successful showing career, picking up many prizes along the way.
Looking at the photograph of him, that is not a surprise!
He was a multiple winner who was with the stable for 5 years.
He has enjoyed a varied retirement since he left us, including show jumping and dressage.
Bouncin Back had a glorious career spanning over 7 months. He took part in 8 races, never once making the frame, and amassed total career earnings of £0.
Highlights included having Rowan Scott walk him from the paddock to the 5f start at Beverley racecourse, before returning at the same speed, and destroying the toolbox of stable blacksmith Liam Murray.
He has set out on his new career as a polo pony.
A gorgeous looking horse, probably one of the slowest horses the stable has raced. In a relatively short career of 5 races, and zero prize money, he did managed to beat a total of 2 horses.
He leads a very active life and participates in many events including endurance, show jumping and dressage
Never managed to win for the stable, and eventually retired as a 5 year old before becoming a broodmare, and a date with good old Sugarfoot!
