We are very pleased to have secured another Irish point to point winner for next season in the five year old The Road Home, pictured. By Oscar he ran a super race at Bartlemy when we were there, to fall at the last when in second. He then won decisively at Kinsale at the start of June and looks a good type to go for bumpers in the autumn, in the colours of two of our existing owners. The Road Home was vetted in Ireland yesterday by Eugenio, and should be here by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, the road to the track started this morning with ten horses coming back into pre-training. Using an eight week conditioning program we aim to have the horses fit to run well early on and to last the full season in training. The program is exact in its work and has been proven to be efficient. Thus this morning, Emissaire, Cockle Bay, Misfits, Boys On Tour, Hey Listen, Chasseur De Tetes, Le Frank, Shanroe Street, Ceegem and Bescot Springs all started off trotting on the roads and up the gallops. More details as they happen.
