The most improved jumps racehorse in the UK in 2015 notched up a memorable hat trick of wins at his favoured Hexham racetrack this afternoon in the 3 mile feature handicap chase notching up his first class 3 win. Under a tremendously aggressive front running ride our stable jockey Jonathon Bewley refused to be passed by the Sue Smith trained Green Wizard as they battled up the home straight to win by a cosy length and three quarters in the fastest time of the day..........what a combination.......amazing. I had a feeling our horse was up for the race as he let the others know who was the man with a little dressage exhibition at the start lol. With a near full house of MGR members at Hexham to witness the spectacle I could not be more pleased......especially for the Bewleys who have transformed the horse into a mean staying front running jumping machine!
I am off over to Ireland with George for a couple of days on the lookout for a 3yo NH store horse or two. We are really keen on the Irish bloodstock as there is something in the grass and water over there that really helps to bring on the young jumping stock. With the exchange rate being near the 1.40 euro to the pound mark it makes sense to head over the water in the hope we can find a bit of value and spot a future star or two. Martin
