|Ollie Pears prepares for his first runner in the Northumberland Plate this Saturday at Gosforth Park.|
|DATE POSTED: 24/06/2011|
trained by Ownaracehorse trainer Ollie Pears will line up in the
most prestigious race of the day on Saturday, The Northumberland
Plate, run at Newcastle.
Our Malton based trainer, Ollie Pears is gearing himself up for a big day at the races tomorrow, following a great run of form from the yard.
With 28 racehorses in his care, Ollie has been firing on all cylinders recently, with it being rare that any of the racehorses being sent from the yard finishing down the field.
Ollie is relatively new to training - but has made a huge impact after only three full seasons of training. With a percentage win rate well into double figures, the ex-jockey is making a name for himself. And that quick rise through the ranks could be given an even bigger boost if his stable marathon star, My Arch, can run a big race at Newcastle tomorrow.
The Northumberland Plate is one of the most iconic Northern based races in the racing programme, and even to have a runner in the race is an achievement. My Arch has crept in at the bottom of the weights, and Ollie is really looking forward to the race.
"We've just managed to squeeze in at the foot of the handicap and I'm absolutely delighted. He only ran a week ago, but he dominated that race, and came out of it in good heart. Basically the more rain the course gets, the better it is for us, as the horse loves having plenty of cut." stated Ollie today.
"We're going to have to run the race of our lives, but this horse is more than capable on his day, and if things go his way he could be getting into the first five or six - and maybe even better."
He concluded "It's an important day for the yard and the owners - we'll have a lot of support and I've already had plenty of well-wishers on the phone and email. We'll do our best and the horse will run his race - if he can get an un-impeded run through from the turn in we've a chance of upsetting the big boys."
We certainly hope that the horse can run a good race for Ollie and the staff at his Malton yard. He's amongst some of the elite in racing on Saturday, and deserves to be there.
