|Get your jumpers out - winter is on the way!|
|DATE POSTED: 18/09/2013|
Its time to crank up
the thermostat of the heating, light those coal burning stoves and
hunker down for the winter. But how about a jumper to make
those short winter days seem to last a bit longer?
At Ownaracehorse we believe we have one of their strongest teams for the winter we have ever had. With both jumpers and All-Weather horses, we are hopeful to bring a bit of winter cheer to shareholders.
Our three jumpers are all based in the North this season - Brunello and Bob's Ticket are being trained by Philip Kirby in Middleham, and Panama At Once, our Hunter Chaser, being looked after by our training yard in Gisburn and trained by Carol Richardson.
Brunello will be facing hurdles for the first time in his life this winter. He's been running well on the flat this summer, but hurdling looks like it could be his forte. Philip Kirby is really looking forward to sending this one over sticks, and he should be racing early in Autumn.
Brunello - ready to go hurdling this winter
Bob's Ticket had a good winter season last year over chase and hurdle obstacles, and he is another who is sure to provide some good sport this winter. He runs for fun and rarely finishes out of the first few home and is a welcomed addition to our jumps team.
Meanwhile, if its flat racing which does it for you, then you should get plenty of warmth on those cold winter evenings from Chateau Lola, trained by Derek Shaw in the Midlands. She won and was placed three times last winter, running at Wolverhampton, Kempton and Southwell. This mare is great fun and runs plenty of times as she is robust as ever. She will no doubt be taking shareholders racing on a regular basis from November through to April.
Chateau Lola will be joined by Shamrocked at Southwell and Wolverhampton. This seven furlong and mile handicapper has a good record on the artificial surfaces and trainer Ollie Pears is convinced he will be getting competitive through the colder months. This four-year-old is a headstrong individual, but when things drop well for him he is more than capable.
Also look out for Cool Reception, our un-raced 2YO, who will be having her first few runs on the All-Weather through the wintertime. She had to have a chip removed from her knee in July, but Ollie Pears is expecting her to be ready for her opening attempts in Maiden races around Christmas time.
All in all, a really eclectic team of horses, and we're convinced there will be a winner or two amongst them and some decent days racing. Don't forget that as well as the shall shares, we have one or two 'Private Service' shares available in these horses as well.
