|Copper Leyf and Village Green ready to race again and a visit to a breakthrough trainer|
|DATE POSTED: 08/05/2013|
The end of this week
and into next is a busy time for both shareholders and staff at
Ownaracehorse. The next few days see the return of Village
Green and Copper Leyf to the turf and on Sunday we visit Philip
Our attention will be taken away from the scouring the sales catalogues this week by the imminent runs from Village Green, our promising 4YO sprinter and Copper Leyf, a well handicapped youngster. Both horses are expected to be racing in the coming days, both having their first runs on turf this season.
Village Green will be racing on Friday evening at Nottingham in a five furlong sprint, up against sixteen rivals. We like this gelding a lot and believe Ollie Pears will have this son of Desert Green winning before long. He has already finished second this season.

Then we have Copper Leyf, trained by Jeremy Gask, running at Chepstow on Tuesday 14th. This youngster was a bit of a lad as a 2YO (Hence his stable name 'Jack'!) but has settled down a lot since being gelded. He looks to have found himself a really great opening in a race which has only attracted eleven entries.
However in-between these two runs we have a yard visit for shareholders. Philip Kirby, one of the breakthrough trainers of 2013 will throw open the doors to his yard in Middleham on Sunday and be briefing our shareholders on how he will increase his number of winners from the current 12 winners already this year.
Since moving to Middleham and taking over the Kate Walton stable Philip has been banging in winners all over the place, both on the flat and over jumps. It should be a great morning with plenty of pointers to be had.
