are starting to be assessed and treated as early season or late
season horses at the moment in training yards up and down the
country. After assessing our Clodovil filly, at our
pre-training yard this well balanced filly has been sent to start
the serious work with Ollie Pears with a pre-summer start for her on
Throwing Roses is our latest 2YO to join trainer Ollie Pears at his
yard in Malton. This daughter of Clodovil has grown well over
the winter and has started her galloping regime. So, it was
time for her to go to Malton and start the next phase of her
Our pre-training yard
contacted us late last week to suggest that Throwing
Roses, a 2YO filly, was now ready to start galloping in
a string. She has been broken, ridden away and
spent many days lunging and being ridden in the indoor
school, but Carol Richardson, the head lass at the
pre-training yard told us it was time to let a trainer
get on with her.
So on Tuesday afternoon the filly was boxed up and left
her stable in Lancashire which has been her home since
October and made the 80 miles trip to Norton, just north
Ollie Pears was there to greet his
new inmate - she will be one of thirteen 2YO's Ollie will have in
training for the 2012 flat season. She will be joining another
of our 2YO's at the yard, Poppy's Purse, who is already galloping up
the Malton All-Weather exercise moors six days in every seven.
Ollie Pears said "She's a good looking filly and travelled well and
has settled in to her new surroundings. We'll be giving her a
day or two to get over the travelling and get used to us and then
we'll have her up the gallops for some initial swinging canters."
Of course its not just the fitness of the horse which Ollie has to
manage - he will also be teaching the filly how to enter a set of
starting stalls - and more importantly how to exit them quickly!
She will also be introduced to racing by being worked upsides other
horses and learn how to respond when asked to chase and pass other
However, for now, this filly is acclimatizing herself to the
Yorkshire Wolds and a new stable full of new people. Our current
expectation is that Throwing Roses should be the sort to start her
racing career in Spring.
