Monday 10 October
Really pleased to report a vast improvement in Omaruru. Although a long way from being out of the woods, he looked a thousand times better on Saturday than he had the previous Sunday. He is a lot brighter - a lot more alert, and is eating for England - so let's hope he continues on the upward curve. The new boy San Telm has settled in really well, and goes very nicely on the gallops, Stuart has not let many other folk ride him yet, and says that he is a lovely horse that continues to give him a lovely feel - very exciting.He was vetted last Monday and was given a clean bill of health so Geoff Bridgford popped over to see him on Saturday, and liked him very much, and has purchased a share, which only leaves 1/4, so if you are interested then please give me a call - San Telm has had one run in a bumper showing a great attitude and no small amount of ability finishing second, he is by top sire Oscar out of a Be My Native mare, so has a wonderful National Hunt pedigree, and judging by the feel he is giving his jockeys at home he is sure to give his new owners a great deal of fun! Kikos has come out of his race in great form, and could now step up to 3 miles at Fakenham at the end of the month. At the moment it is only an idea, and we will explore all options with him, but I think it may well be worth trying him over the trip on the track - as the prizemoney is £10k and the ground will suit, and if he is going to stay 3 miles Fakenham is the place to do it! Hopefully he can enhance our course record of 6 runs - 4 wins a second and a 5th!! Colebrooke is in fine fettle, and has an entry at Uttoxeter on Thursday. He should run, and with the form of his previous race working out very well he should run a big race. Smart Exit is just ticking over waiting for the much needed rain to arrive - he needs some give in the ground and will niot run until it arrives - all of his owners are keen to see him run, but it is just not worth the risk!
