    Stormy Morning finishes a battling third at Musselburgh, and trainer Philip Kirby looking forward to his next run    
    DATE: 17/02/2012    
    Trainer Philip Kirby declared himself 'delighted' with the way shareholders racehorse Stormy Morning ran at Musselburgh yesterday.  The 6YO gelding was having his second race of 2012 and despite being bumped and having to go wide around the bottom bend, finished well to take third in one of the most competitive races of the day...

Philip Kirby had plenty to be positive about following a really good day at the office on Thursday.  Not only did he have a second with 'Call It On' in the chase, but he managed first and third in the big handicap of the day.
Speaking this morning he told us "It was a great day, and it was good to see all my horses put in very competitive performances - especially in the handicap hurdle."

He continued "'Stormy' ran a cracking race for his shareholders, and when you consider he was giving my other horse a stone, he's done really well.  What was most gratifying was the fact he travelled so well on the 'Good' ground which bodes well for the rest of the year over hurdles, but also on the turf."

Stormy Morning won over hurdles just before Christmas in soft ground conditions, but as a dual purpose racehorse he is set to race right through spring and summer on both National Hunt and Flat codes of racing.

Philip is particularly looking forward to when the ground gets to proper fast ground, as he believes the gelding will thoroughly enjoy some of the two mile flat handicaps available in the North through the summer.

We still have a few shares left in this really solid performer, and with Philip's spring yard visit not too far away he would be a great share for a gift or for a racing enthusiast who wants to get involved in ownership and follow the exploits of a very competitive and likeable gelding.
