New to our team Quantatmental had 3 runs last year where he showed some promise. He’s a lovely big strong horse who needed the run on his return to the course before running a race full of promise on his first attempt over 1m6f at Wetherby (29/4/18). He is more then capable of picking up races and will give us plenty of fun through the season.
Tough Remedy - Keith Dalgleish
2015 Gelding - Tough As Nails x Remediate
His dam Group 3 placed in the US and producer of black type performers from the family of California Derby winner Always A Cinch.
His sires first crop of 2 year olds to run in 2017, Tough As Nails a very precocious 2yo from a speedy family himself by Dark Angel.
Tough Remedy made a highly encouraging debut finishing 2nd beaten a neck. Having been unlucky in running.
Things didn't go as planned at Hamilton where gaps didn't appear and he finished a close up 3rd being beaten a neck. He will now be given a couple of weeks before we find him a 6f race somewhere.
Tough Remedy's run at Carlisle some could say was a backward step however he is still green and still learning, he hit what seems to be his customary flat spot mid race before staying on at the finish only being beaten around 2 lengths in 5th. He now has a mark of 73 and holds entries this week.
Tough Remedy ran another solid race in defeat at Ayr (24/7) he was slowly away but soon found his stride and picked up when push came to shove he just couldn't quite catch the winner whom looks easily an 80+ horse. He has now been gelded just to help his concentration and will be back after Christmas.
Tough Remedy made a winning return to the track at Newcastle on (12/1/18) he looked a picture in the paddock. He settled just in behind the leaders and travelled nicely before picking up in the final furlong and winning by 11/4 lengths.
Unwritten - Karl Burke
2015 Colt - Poets Voice x Passata
This Colt is a half brother to 3 black type winners including a champion German 2 year old. Passata herself was unraced.
His sire was a high class winner at 2 over 7f who progressed at 3 to be a top miler including winning the Queen Elizabeth II beating Rip Van Winkle. Sire of G3 Oh So Sharp winner Poet's Vanity and leading second season sire.
He's a big framed horse as you can see in the 2nd picture, with plenty of scope. Although he will need a little time he has a good attitude and takes his work well.
Unwritten has continued to work well and he will make his racecourse debut sometime around the end of August.
Unwritten made a pleasing debut at Hamilton (25/8/17) finishing 4th in a race where the form has worked out well.
Unwritten won (28/8/17) by 9 Lengths at Pontefract readily going clear on the rain softened ground. The second has won since and he will be aimed at the Silver Tankard Listed race 23/10/17 back at Pontefract.
Unwritten finished a pleasing 5th in the Silver Tankard, he probably needs a step up in trip now. We will geld him and put him away for the winter with races like the Melrose at York possible targets for him next season. Unwritten has been given a mark of 91.
Landing Night - Rebecca Menzies
Kodiac X Night Delight
Landing Night or Romeo as he's known at home is new to our team for 2018. Currently rated 78 after 2 wins last year and racking up a number of consistent efforts. He normally needs a couple of runs to put him right and he will run frequently through the year. He loves Catterick and Newcastle and will also be aimed at the likes of Chester and Musselburgh. We're sure he will prove a great asset to the team and give members some great days out through the season.
Kodi King - Karl Burke
Kodiac X Throne
A lovely individual. The dam is related to several winners, most notably the top-class sprinter Kyllachy and smart Speedsters Borders and Speed On.
He is an early type who we are looking forward to progressing through the winter.
French Sonnet - Karl Burke
Poet's Voice X Bahama Mama
Another early type. The dam, a dual Listed winner (including at 2) and 3rd in the German 1000 Guineas, was a three-parts sister to Group 3/Listed winner Lady Wingshot.
Fortunate Move - Richard Fahey
Heeraat X Fortunately
A lovely, racy sort. The dam was a very precocious juvenile, scoring on four occasions at two including at Listed level and repeating the feat later on in her career in the US. Has already produced winners.
Unfortunately on our stable visit she had an accident on the gallops and cracked her pelvis. She will miss this season but will be given plenty of time to recover.
Swissterious - Karl Burke
Swiss Spirit X Mysterious Girl
Half brother to triple juvenile scorer Four Dragons. The dam was successful on three occasions, including on debut at two, and she herself was a full sister to the dam of very smart 2yo Zebedee.
