Weekly Update 19-08-18
By BG Racing Syndicates On 19th August 2018
Quiet week on the news front this week. No problems to report, but no action to discuss either. I am planning a trip down to the stables on Tuesday and I will hopefully see the horses then. We nearly made an entry for My Brother late this week but had a change of heart, more details below.
The Way You Dance
The plan is still to get The Way You Dance back for the Grassroots Stayers Series final at Nottingham at the start of October, which is a valuable prize. I would then like to keep him going into the winter to try to get some mileage out of his hurdles mark and on that basis I am almost certain that we will extend our ownership of him for another year.
With the success that The Way You Dance has had this year, I will be increasing his value at renewal. For the current year I am holding the share price at £280.50 per 1%, reducing to £275 per 1% if you buy 5% and £270 per 1% if you buy 10%. As a special offer, if you buy 5% or more, I will credit you with all prize money won so far this season – which is payable at the year end – this will mean that you already have about £250 of prize money in the bank, with nothing else to pay before renewal in October. Contact me for details.
I am still speaking to a couple of people about re-homing Justice Super and I spent some time this week, working out the finances for end of the ownership year.
As stated last week, despite getting a handicap mark, we are keen to stick with novice hurdles for the moment with My Brother. There was what looked like a suitable race at Fontwell next Thursday and this Thursday when it was pouring with rain, it looked a good target, but the rain did not get into the ground and on Friday morning, “Good to Firm” still appeared in the going description and with no further rain forecast, there seemed little point in making the entry.
The next possible option is a novice hurdle at Cartmel next Saturday and the ground there is looking soft enough. The entry would need to be made tomorrow and I will be discussing this with Neil.
Shares in My Brother remain £450 for 1%, but I will discount these to £430 per 1% for 5% purchase and £410 per 1% for 10% purchases. All purchases will be credited with full share of prize money for this season. This is an all in cost to 31st October 2018 and at renewal shares will be less than £200 per 1% share to cover training fees should you decide to stay involved for another year. Please contact me for more information.
From The Stables
After no runners from our stables on Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday was a bumper day of runners! At Newton Abbot, Neil had All Hands on Deck who was well beaten and Chantecler who ran well but finished 2nd. Lee Side Lady and Bit More were non runners at Worcester where Full ran well to be 3rd. White Lilac was a loser and Highbury High was only 5th before Great Fairy was well beaten. Neil’s success came at Kempton, where Penny Poet was well backed and produced by Jamie Spencer inside the final furlong to win a shade cosily.
Johnny had a second through Winter Spice at Newton Abbot, where Kalakadesmilley faded out of contention. Bermeo clouted the first, but he plugged on well for 3rd and Spring Storm was well beaten. At Worcester, Marvellous Monty did not feature.
There were then no further runners on Thursday or Friday, but Johnny was back in action on Saturday with four runners. Ali The Hunter was disappointing at Chepstow where Hell of a Lady was also beaten. There were two good runs at Market Rasen though where Courtlands Prince was 3rd and Sporting Boy was 2nd.
Sunday saw three more declared by Johnny. Billy Two Tongues was beaten in a race where Love The Leader was a non runner, but Polished Rock was then a well backed winner of the next providing Johnny with a winner to match the one from Neil earlier in the week.
Buying a share in one or both of the horses is a decision that you will not regret. All quoted prices 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 discussing 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“.

Have a great week.
