    Our 2YO's for 2016 are all doing well as they battle through the February wind and cold in preparation for the turf season    
    DATE POSTED: 17/02/2016    

We have six un-raced two-year-olds in our Ownaracehorse syndicates for 2016, and our trainers both in the North and South reported this week that all of our youngsters are progressing nicely and getting ready for the forthcoming turf season...   

Our team of un-raced two-year-olds are reported to be fit and well by both our trainers of these youngsters. Ollie Pears, based in Malton has four of them and Seamus Durack trains another two down in Lambourn.

At this time of year the cold conditions make training any racehorse something of a challenge. In the last few days both in the North and South, ice and snow have been a feature of the working day for the yards. However, we are delighted to report that all our two-year-olds are making good progress and none of them have suffered any major setbacks.

I Call The Shots has developed into a very scopey, athletic type of horse during the last few months and has been very popular with shareholders. Trained by Ollie Pears, this gelding was one of our more expensive purchases at the sales and he is working with plenty of promise. He is by first-season sire Delegator and believe he may well have been very well bought by Ollie and ourselves. 

Also at the Ollie Pears yard, Spanish Beauty is turning out to be a smashing Paco Boy filly. One of our stable favourites, she is quite forward going and Ollie is pleased with her breezing work.  Her distance is likely to be six furlongs, and these Paco Boy offspring seem to like the firmish going through high summer.  

Orithia - a very promising young filly who cost 48,000 - available for only 185 per share..

Our second filly is with Seamus Durack in Lambourn, and our most expensive purchase at the sales. Orithia is a very interesting young horse indeed stop with a US pedigree, she is by one of the 'breakthrough' sires of the last couple of years, More Than Ready. She has had a touch of tendonitis (growing pains for young horses), and has grown significantly in the last few weeks, but is still expected to be racing in the early stages of the season. Her mother was third in the Albany at Royal Ascot and although it's a long way off, we could see Orithia attempting to follow the same route.

Also with Seamus is a smashing High Chaparral colt called High Wells.  He has done nothing but grow since he arrived at the yard last October and he has the sort of pedigree which could see him competing at a high level. He will need at least six or seven furlongs on breeding, so don't expect to see him out before June - but we are very excited about his prospects.

Back in East Yorkshire, our final filly of the bunch is Dyna Might. We at Ownaracehorse like this filly an awful lot and are already getting excited about her size and scope. She is a two-year-old by first season sire Foxwedge, who is firing winners in relentlessly over in Australia at the moment. This filly is not small and will need a little time to fill out, but we are hoping she will be a little bit special. Five furlong Maiden races in May will be her opening target.

Finally, we have a very sharp and forward Compton Place colt with Ollie Pears in Malton. Fire Engine is currently expected to be our first runner out of all our two-year-olds this year. Despite being the youngest of all the five horses, this chap is just like his father and we expect him to be racing over five furlongs right at the start of the season.

That's your roundup from around the training centres in terms of our two-year-olds. Now all you need to do is choose which of them you fancy owning for the upcoming season!
