Archie Watson 2yos Start Season in Flying Form


Archie Watson doesn't let the grass grow under his feet. The Upper Lambourn trainer has made a name for himself at Saxon Stables, throwing aside his rookie status in 2016 with a number of talented horses, especially two-year-olds which he has done particularly well. Many winning on debut.

This new Flat season has started in a similar vein with four [...]

All Work and no Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy

A quote from Stephen King's The Shining (1980). A great film with an excellent cast. Directed by Stanley Kubrick  I know some of you wordsmiths are thinking: ''Stephen King didn't coin the phrase.'' It is a proverb which goes back to 1659. And means (surprise surprise) without time off work, a person becomes both bored and boring.

Getting ready for [...]

Great Yarmouth Horse Racing Membership 2019


I love having a day's racing at Great Yarmouth. 

I've been going since a child when my parents stayed at the Haven holiday park at Caister-on-sea. Lots of good times, making sandcastles, playing the one-armed bandits and going to the races with my Dad (Colin). We always visit the course for the Eastern Festival which covers three days in the [...]

Trainer Quotes Vs Group Horse Daily


It seems the world and his wife want that little bit more insider horse racing news. It seems that many punters are willing to pay for 'info' about what a given horse trainer thinks about their horse(s).

Trainer Quotes is one of a few platforms with connections to stable. I'm pretty sure another known website is called From The Stables. [...]

If Jesus Had Been a Professional Gambler…


It's interesting how we view one another. How we make judgements. Jesus couldn't preach to those he knew because his words were not taken seriously. The people thought they knew him better than he knew himself. 

As time proved - the son of God was everything and more. His proclamations were true. 

In many respects, as a gambler people are [...]

What’s Your Favourite Grand National Winner?


Who doesn't love the Grand National? The greatest steeplechase in the world. It's a race that captures the imagination of young and old. 

Remember the time...

The great thing about the Grand National is that we all have a story to tell. Even if it was your Grandad reminiscing about the day he saw Red Rum walking around the paddock, [...]

Foaled on March 4, 1990, So Factual was sired by Known Fact, who was awarded the 2,000 Guineas in 1980 on the disqualification of Nureyev, but was primarily an influence for speed in his progeny. Bred, and originally owned, by Prince Khalid Abdullah, founder of Juddmonte Farms and trained, initially, by Guy Harwood at Coombelands Racing Stables in Pulborough, West Sussex, [...]
