Tuesday 13 December
Apasionado failed to pick up quite like Stuart would have liked in his work this morning, and will therefore miss his intended target in Ascot on Friday. It is a shame, as we would have liked to have tested him over a more suitable trip, against a lot of the best 2m novices out there. Apasionado will now have a holiday and be back in the spring, on his favoured Good ground.He remains one to very much look forward to - and will contest some really nice races in 2017. Molly Childers has been entered in Hereford on Monday, she is in fine fettle! On the subject of nice mares - a super prospect arrived at Fences Farm in the last couple of days, Stuart has given her a canter and says she is smashing - very athletic. She is already a winner of her only start, the form of which has been seriously franked, so she is a very bright prospect indeed. More details on her towards the end of the week.
