Weekly Update 11-08-19
By BG Racing Syndicates On 11th August 2019
Not much to report this week. I could not face my planned trip to Bath on Thursday on the back of last weekend’s Market Rasen trip and the knowledge that I was up in Suffolk this weekend, but I did get up to Epsom on Friday to see The Way You Dance who is doing very well at Michael Attwater’s. I am hoping to get down to Neil’s on Friday as I am playing golf in Oxford on Thursday and plan to stay in the area and head down on Friday morning.
The Way You Dance
The Way You Dance is doing really well and the staff at Michael Attwater’s yard all think he is a great horse to have around. He has been cantering every day and coming along quite quickly. Michael wants to give him a proper gallop next week to see how he fares. If that all goes well then we will probably be only a week or two from giving him a run, but we will know more later this week.
He is working well and showing no issues or problems. Obviously, we know that he has run below par this season even when he has worked really well at home, but on the flip side he would be is unlikely to run well if he was working badly, so everything is as good as could be hoped for at the moment. I uploaded a video of him cantering to Facebook here and I updated some photos that I took a couple of weeks ago with some new ones here.
Nothing much to update on Fr Humphrey this week. He is back in training after last week’s run and we will see what handicap mark we get on Tuesday.
Nothing new to update on My Brother this week.
From The Stables
No runners last Tuesday and just the one on Wednesday when Michael Attwater’s Big Time Maybe ran well at Bath finishing second. On Thursday, Mountain Rescue ran really well to finish 2nd for Michael at Sandown and on Friday, he had two runners at Brighton. Noble Deed was well beaten, but Ask the Guru ran OK to just miss out on the places. Saturday saw Michael’s two runners at Lingfield unplaced and The Cruising Lord was also beaten at Ascot.
Fees for horses are all-inclusive and buying a share in a BG Racing horse is a decision that you will not regret. Quoted prices (except for Fr Humphrey) include the purchase price of the horse and should you decide to renew for a second year, you will only need to pay training fees which are under £200 per 1% share. If you are interested in finding out more about what is involved, then please do get in touch as I would be delighted to discuss things with you.
I also have an e-book entitled “Racehorse Ownership – Everything You Might Have Wanted To Know But Would Not Have Known Who To Ask“. This is free and the download page can be accessed here.
Have a great week.
