(Opens to a third party website)
Just a very brief newsletter this week as I'm concentrating on our full Review of 2014 and our Website Awards which should be up for viewing by the end of the week, a must read for all.
Our only racing over the last week was a successful one completing a memorable year as Blackstone Marco landed the Henlow Cesarewitch worth £2,500 beating kennelmate Vanfrenchie in fine style by 3 3/4 lengths in a fast 33.30. To add to a great day Ilewin Allot easily took the Dual Distance Final worth £500 winning by 3 1/2 lengths in 25.68. Unfortunately in a messy Coral Olympic Final at Hove on Sunday our last runner of 2014 Benkaat Nero could only finish 4th.
Towcester on Saturday was absolutely heaving with a huge crowd on a bitterly cold night and though the night didn't start well with Vanmaestro taking a tumble (thankfully ok afterwards) on his debut and then stayer Swift Sandra breaking a hock when in a good position over 655m it did get better. Poodle Star for Lord Hesketh ran very well when just shaded in a P5 and then we had wins for Club Notes (15.46) in a sprint and Aero Gerry won our first ever eight dog race leading all the way to record a good 28.51 and in the last race Benkaat Boomer led on the run in to take an A2 in 28.74.
This just leaves me to say a very Happy New Year to everyone and here's hoping 2015 is just as good as 2014!
PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK
WHAT'S ON NEXT WEEK
We are back with a bang on Friday as we look to emulate last year's 1-2-3-4 in the Coral Coronation Cup at Romford when this year's event kicks off on Friday. Adageo Bob leads our entries and he would be a worthy and deserving winner of a Romford 575m competition!
We will have plenty of runners at Towcester both on Friday and Saturday.
WEBSITE RECOMMENDED BETS
Unfortunately we couldn't go out with a winner as Benkaat Nero could only finish 4th yesterday at Hove in the Olympic Final.
The Coral Coronation Cup will be the chance for Adageo Bob to gain some big compensation for missing out on a golden opportunity to land the Essex Vase.
ADAGEO BOB - 5 pts win ante post - Coronation Cup - Romford - starts Friday
ADVISED LAST WEEK
BENKAAT NERO - 4 pts win - Coral Olympic Final - Hove - lost
