    Winter Team now in place with addition of Chateau Lola    
         
    DATE POSTED: 13/09/2012    
         
    Our winter team of horses for 2013 is now complete with the latest addition - Chateau Lola, a 3YO filly who will be racing at the All-Weather tracks through the winter and trained by Derek Shaw...
 
We've got the last of our winter season horses sorted out for the 2013 season - As well as the two jumpers going through the winter, we've also just added a new All-Weather horse to our stable.
 
Derek Shaw has long since been a name on the All-Weather scene, having only just missed out on the top trainers title a few years ago.

He's moved more into the mainstream since, moving his yard to Sproxton, close to Melton Mowbray a couple of years ago, but still maintains a very strong winter team of All-Weather horses each year, and we are delighted to have added Chateau Lola to our team for the winter.  She's a good looking individual and a sprinter, which should ensure plenty of action.
 
Chateau Lola

This filly has already won on the All-Weather this year, and been placed, and is a typical example of the sort of horse with which Derek manages to pull in an average 13% strike rate with through the winter. She is a much better animal on the artificial surfaces and we are looking forward to seeing her race at All the All-Weather tracks, including Kempton and Southwell especially - where she has run well in the past.

Chateau Lola has the sort of profile that Derek excels with - a horse rated in the 50's, which he will conjure improved runs from, in a grade where there are plenty of races for horses in handicap company.

As well as the flat runner, we have the return of Stormy Morning for his winter campaign - having won last winter for us over sticks (and on the flat this summer). He will be a popular horse with shareholders, as his enigmantic style means he is always finding out the handicapper and popping in an unexpected win.

Joining Stormy Morning and Philip Kirby at Dibble Bridge stables is Crumble, probably one of our longest running 'projects' we have ever had. Bought at the 2009 National Hunt 'Store' sales, this nice big mare is set to race over hurdles and then over chase fences, and we can't wait! She has matured really well over the last six months and when she gets going over the bigger fences and over stamina sapping distances, both we and her trainer are expecting she will make her mark.

So we have three nice horses for the winter already available - and you can purchase these horses now for their winter seasons. Of course there will be more horses on their way onto the site soon enough for next season's flat campaign as we go to the sales again in the coming weeks.

Look out for news on our yearling purchases very soon, as the first sale we will be attending is later this week during the Doncaster Ledger meeting.
