    Crumble looking very well indeed as she builds up for a winter of hurdling and then Novice Chasing    
    DATE POSTED: 06/07/2012    
    Crumble is on the move!  Our 'store' horse is ready to go Novice Chasing, after a couple of hurdles runs to get her in the mood.  However, this big chesnut mare has never looked so good...

When you are bringing a nice horse along, time and patience are the two essential ingredients.  That's what Crumble, our hope for chasing success has had lavished on her over the last three years since we bought her from the National Hunt 'Store' sales - but now this mare is ready to get her racing career properly underway.

The mare is now breezing every day up the pre-training gallop at Gisburn in Lancashire and is making great progress.  We've just posted a new report on the mare ahead of her share period starting, which includes videos and photos from the yard.

Carol Richardson, the Head lass at the yard and her regular work rider told us "She's just such a lovely horse, and just eats up the ground.  I can't wait until she goes over a proper trip like three miles or more because she's going to just love it.  I can't wait to watch her jump chase fences on a track because she's such a great jumper and you can just tell that she loves doing it."  
By recognised National Hunt sire Karinga Bay, this mare is a daughter of a three-times chase winner.

She had a few quiet races over hurdles late last year, gaining experience each time over the smaller fences, but this winter will see her doing the job she is really bred for - Chasing.

She has only raced over inadequate trips so far - staying on nicely at the end of each race, for this big bay mare will be a force when she steps up to three miles and above.

Richie McGrath rode her in her last hurdle at Carlisle and told us she was a really nice mare, but she needed a bit more time, and a couple more races over hurdles for experience - but that she would be a really nice chasing prospect.

We've followed his advice to the letter - she will be out in October and September over hurdles for further experience, and then she will face the chase fences.  We already know she is an excellent jumper, but we believe that move to chase fences and the stamina sapping three miles and above will be the making of her.

Shares are already available in Crumble for her winter campaign - and we are already reporting on her on an ad-hoc basis, which will become far more frequent as we reach the start of her share period in September.
