RACING WEEK 28 This update kindly written by one of my owners – Paul Eggett. A much quieter week as College Farm sent three3 horses to Yarmouth on Wednesday, this being the only meeting of the week. Percy Toplis (Percy) was in a class 6 Handicap over 1m and like his previous run at Chelmsford was slowly away. Unlike his last run however he was unable to get on terms throughout the race and finished 5th crossing the line. The last race of the day saw Shyarch (Archi )and Agent of Fortune (AoF) entered for a class 6 handicap over […]
RACING WEEK 27 Thus update kindly written by one of my owners – Paul Eggett. The week’s runners were seen at three meetings as the stable looked for results to keep the statistics ahead of last year’s figures. July 2018 was the busiest month of the year and offered up two winners and four places in all, so the pressure is on during the corresponding month this year. On Thursday, Yarmouth saw both Agent of Fortune (AoF) and Penarth Pier line up in a class 6 handicap over seven furlongs. AoF has yet to find the form of last year […]
Where have all the April Showers gone? Time is flying by. I don’t think we have been so busy or excited about a season as we are currently here at College Farm. Horses are running well, despite only one winner on the score board at the moment, from 23 runs to date, 1 winner and 9 in the frame I am calling that a promising start to the year. Our first 2 turf runners hit the grass at the Craven Meeting in Newmarket. 3yo’s Secret Treaties and Queen of Burgundy. Both ran very respectable in good company. We are all […]
Well 2019 has started off with mixed reviews, sad to lose our old favourite Warden Warren but plenty to look forward to for the New Year ahead. With the help of some of my very dear loyal owners, they have got this web site rejuvenated and up and running for exciting things to come. Grateful thanks to them, and I am sure they will keep me on my toes to keep everyone informed what is going on!!! Just because there has been no news on here doesn’t mean nothing has been happening! Far from it. You have all read the […]
Happy New Year to everyone. This should be the first of many blogs as I am being given plenty of nudges to keep this up! First of all I am going to start the New Year with a tribute to my wonderful old boy WARDEN WARREN. We bought Warren as a 2yo at the very start of my training career, in fact my first purchase as a trainer. Warren had won 2 races before we bought him but had the reputation of a “very quirky” individual, just the sort I was looking for to start my career! He certainly was […]
College Farm Stables had a slow start to the 2018 season but Mr. Trevor Milner’s 4yo gelding Drop Kick Murphi by Sir Prancealot(IRE) ex Rindiseyda(IRL) set the ball rolling when winning a 6 furlong handicap at Nottingham in May at the attractive odds of 33/1. July saw Mr Andy Machin’s filly Agent Of Fortune by Kheleyf(USA) ex Royal Bloom (IRE) winning her maiden, a 7f handicap at Gt.Yarmouth at 12/1 with Mr Francis Butler’s Shyjack 40/1 a Shd runner up. Later that month the Boss, Mrs Dunnett, returned to Yarmouth with her own Percy Toplis by Kheleyf (USA) ex West […]
