A race to report on for The Way You Dance at Goodwood, as well as a visit to the stables so plenty to report this week.
The Way You Dance
The Way You Dance ran last Tuesday at Goodwood and went unexpectedly well given the soft ground. The more important thing was how he came out of the race and we were a little disappointed that he was a bit stiff the morning after. That said he was improved on Thursday and better again on Friday when I went down to see him. So much so in fact that Neil decided not to withdraw the entry he had put in for TWYD at Chepstow next Thursday. The race is a 1m 4f handicap and whilst it is currently unlikely that we will run him here, we will make a final decision on Monday or Tuesday.
I went down to the stables on Friday to get some photos for the new website. The weather was hardly ideal for photography and Tracey my photographer nearly drowned during one squall. Ever the gentlemen, Neil and I sheltered in the car while she took refuge under some trees unable to get back to us!
She did get some nice shots though and I am looking forward to getting them up on the website.
The sad news from Neil’s yard is that Sean Corby who has ridden The Way You Dance to two wins is leaving the yard. Sean has struggled to get many rides and has decided to move back to Ireland. He is planning on riding out at Aiden O’Brien’s yard and will retain his jockey licences as he tries to get some rides back at home. It is sad to see him go as I think he is a good rider and is a big part of last year’s success for The Way You Dance.
BG Racing Syndicates Development
I rounded off the day with a meeting with David who has been helping me with how to
market the syndicates to new members. This was really positive and gave me loads of good ideas.
I hope to launch the website later this week and look forward to developing the offering to members of the syndicates.
Have a great week.
