Looking Forward...

As we look forward to the new season, we are delighted to welcome back a previous stable star to parade at our Owners’ Day next weekend on Sunday 11th September.

Between December 2012 and July 2019, Sleep in First won six times over fences and four times over hurdles with a further six seconds and eight thirds so he was a great fun horse for his owners.  On his retirement he went to Jo Fox and we are much looking forward to seeing Sleepy again together with his pony companion Bubbles!

Craig Farm Syndicate – A fun way to enjoy racing at a very reasonable cost!

More detailed information can be found on all these horses and The Craig Farm Syndicate by clicking on the names above.

Staff and Other News

There have been a number of recent staff changes.   Rosie Ford is off to work during the winter in Australia doing track work and we wish her well.  Blake Storrie has joined us as a work rider and is a very experienced horseman and a great asset to the team and Charles Marini will re-join us very shortly as Assistant Trainer after his good filly (second in a Listed race) runs in Rome on Tuesday!

On other staff news, Sarah Poole’s ex Flat four year old Cully qualified for the ROR Tattersalls Ex Racehorse class at the Highland Show and Leah Barnfather won every class at her Pony Club camp!  Leah helps us out at weekends and during the holidays and we miss her now that she has returned to school as she is a very accomplished 14 year old.

We look forward to another Open Day on Wednesday 14th September when once again we take part in the Racing to Schools initiative and welcome pupils from Langholm Academy.

We were greatly saddened to hear about the tragic death of Henry de Bromhead’s  13 year old son Jack after a fall at the Glenbeigh Racing Festival and our heartfelt sympathies go out to his family.
