3rd January 2017
We didn't quite finish the season off as I had hoped out in Doha with Scarlet Dragon, as unfortunately he picked a bug up on the plane and did not give his true running. I am happy to say he is now home, well rugged up and recovering from the trip. It was a very interesting trip and one I would be happy to make again, QREC (Qatari BHA) looked after us all extremely well and it was a great learning experience for us all.
Apart from that, what a great season we had last year. I must just give it one more quick recap, as I have to keep pinching myself that it really did happen. In summary, we had 41 winners and won over £502,000 in prize money. We finished 43rd in the trainers list and were leading female trainer. All of which is quite a phenomenal effort from our small yard. To say I am immensely proud of myself and my fantastic team is quite the understatement; I am also incredibly grateful to all my owners and my brilliant staff who made it all happen.
That's all well and good, but now we are into a new year and new season and we are back to zero. The winners board is empty again and we have no prize money on board. So what can we look forward to. Of the 3yos; Accidental Agent did really well last year and looks to have improved so should be exciting; Onto Victory showed up well last year, as did Bahamadam. There are a few less exposed ones to look forward to as well. We also have a nice bunch of 2yos, who are shaping up well, more of them in future posts.
So lets hope that we can do as well or even better this year. Happy New Year and best of luck to you all.
