A fantastic start to 2018!!!

Just two completed months into 2018 we have already had 6 winners!  The yard is in brilliant form.  

 

Argus completed a Kempton double and qualifies for the £70,000 middle distance final in November 2018.  His first win came on the 16th January over two miles.  His second win of 2018 was again at Kempton, this time in a higher grade of race on 17th February.

Tactical Manoeuvre won at Taunton for The Tacticians.  Taunton  is always a popular win, with a full home crowd cheering us on!  This was Tactical Manoeuvre's second win for us; his previous win being at Exeter.

Diamond Reflection won at Kempton on the all-weather.  He was a fantastic buy by Tom Dunn, who brought him very well from Tattersalls Ascot sales.  Diamond Reflection runs for the Jas Club and has already been a lot of fun. 

 

French Mix another purchase by Tom Dunn out of the powerful Joseph O'Brien yard then went on to win at Lingfield.  We were incredibly lucky for the meeting to be on, with "The Beast from the East"  causing an inspection to be called at Lingfield due to snow.  

French Mix showed s gutsy attitude and got up on the line to win by a nose.  She is for sale to stay in the yard and we anticipate her to make a lovely summer hurdler as she is a four year old filly, so will run off very light weights.  She will continue to run on the flat in the meantime.

Minella Voucher also added to our winner's tally.  Scoring at Towcester to give Blue Blood Syndications a first winner.  Minella Voucher had to fight hard for the win and managed to win by less then a length.   The plan is to now take him chasing; but we will need to going to thaw out for us to get a run.
