September Round Up

 In Latest News

September proved to be another successful month for the team with winners continuing at a good rate and many horse holding their form and running well in defeat. This time of year is always crazy with plenty of horses still in full training whilst new recruits are being gathered up at the yearling sales ahead of the 2022 season.

Brazen Bolt was a dual winner this month at Gosforth Park (Newcastle). All three of his career wins have now come at this venue. We feel that is purely coincidental as he has shown very decent form on turf too this year. Jason Hart did the steering on the first occasion and Oisin Murphy rode him to the second victory later in the month.

Rebel Redemption has also hit his straps this month and bagged himself a couple of victories at Catterick and Chelmsford respectively. He is a fun horse to have around the yard and has now won at least one race in each of his seasons to race. This season his tally of victories stands at three (so far!). Regular rider Jason Hart, who gets on so well with ‘Rebel’, was on board for each of his victories. On both occasions he dictated matters and made all of the running. These tactics suit Rebel very well and he can be hard to peg back on his day granted favourable conditions.

Oisin Murphy, chasing his third jockeys championship this season, rode two winners for us this month. Prior to winning on Brazen Bolt at Newcastle he rode Melody King to victory at Sandown on September 15th. He produced his mount very late in the day to win by a head at the line. This was Melody King’s second victory of the season and he has really found his groove since dropping back to five furlongs.

The Ayr Gold Cup meeting is one of our favourite of the year. There is competitive racing over the three day festival and our owners are always very well looked after by the racecourse. There is an ‘end of term’ feel about the meeting and we always like to target it with a few of the team. Mr Wagyu continued his excellent season by finishing third in the Gold Cup and frustratingly a good few of our string hit the crossbar up there. In the end it was Titan Rock who saved the day by winning a competitive 0-95 seven furlong handicap on Gold Cup day, the penultimate race on the card…phew!

Crocodile Power, as popular horse as we have on the yard owing to his legion of followers and members of the Racing Emporium shed his maiden tag at Newcastle under Jason Hart. We had felt things hadn’t really dropped right for him in recent outings but here Jason gave him a lovely ride, getting plenty of cover and pouncing late in the day to win cosily at the line.

It is extremely satisfying to see so many horses holding their form this far in to the flat season. There are another six weeks of turf racing to go and we have plenty that can still win races for us going forward. The 50 winner mark is not far away!
