We have had a very quiet month in the month of August. The horses are very well in themselves and we are just about to turn it up a bit.
Gifted Girl may head to the Dubai Duty Free Arc Trial or she has been invited to the Flower bowl Invitational Stakes at Belmont Park in New York. Gifted Girl is in very good form and is fresh and well, There was some more good form for her through Lady's First at Sandown on Saturday, there has got to be a big one in her.
Jim Crowley came to ride Berkshire on Saturday and felt he was in good form and had come on from his race, the horse has grown an inch and we are very happy with him physically and mentally, he is ready to run and is fit and well. The Champagne Stakes is his target a week Saturday.
Double Points heads for Craon in France and runs in the Listed Criterium De L'Ouest over the extended mile. Double Points came fourth in a listed in Deauville on the 20th August, he was very unlucky not to have been there or there abouts after nearly been knocked over at the bend and loosing momentum and then finishing like a train. We really like him and he should have a good chance in Craon he is growing and strengthening all the time. He also thrives on racing
Complicit heads either to the Sirenia Stakes or the Mill Reef Stakes. Complicit is a very nice horse, he's come on from his race leaps and bounds and runs in the colours of T A Rahman. We expect him to run well for our new owner who we are delighted to have in the yard. He is a half sister to Jersey Stakes winner Rainfall and seems to be talented himself.
We still have some nice two year olds too come out either at the end of this month or even next month. Ones too look out for are Fort Berkley by Fastnet Rock who is a half brother to Ebor winner Tiger Cliff. Also Treasure Key who is by Bahamian Bounty and is shaping up really nicely.
