Wednesday 1 September
Always nice to be in demand, and there is still a great deal of interest in the shares that we have available in various horses.I hope to be able to sell the remaining share in Robo or Bobby Gee this week, and we continue to get a lot of interest in Omaruru. Omar has been slowly coming alive since his arrival - he is piling on the pounds, and has taken to jumping very well. He is now cantering up 3 flights of hurdles and thoroughly enjoying himself. He is cantering gently and bucking and kicking his way around the farm, so he seems to be in the rudest of health. Remember shares in this fellow are only £400, and being supremely well bred he should be giving us a fair bit of fun through the winter!! Robo is cantering, and will be aimed at Novice Chases this winter, hopefully starting over 2 1/2 miles, gradually stepping up in trip with age and experience. He is a real staying chaser in the making, and a very exciting prospect.His details can be found on the horses for sale page, along with those of Bobby Gee. Bobby has been struggling with a breathing problem for a little while which has meant that we have not seen the best of him for a day or two - but that has been rectified now, and he could be very dangerously handicapped on his return. He is still a novice over fences and will mix novice and handicap chases throughout the winter. Bob is not far off a run. Kikos is also working well - he was very good at the weekend, and when he starts to tell us that he is ready we will find a race for him, be it over fences of hurdles.
