November got off to a brilliant start with Sabbathical winning a two mile chase at Fakenham. He won the same race last year so we were hopeful of a bold show and Adam Wedge gave him a brilliant ride to get on top close home. That now brings our total to five winners for the year which we are thrilled with.
We also had a yard open morning at Mark Walford Racing to view our new yearling purchase by Bungle Inthejungle. It was an excellent day where we got to watch him being broken in. It was quite amazing to see the horse being ridden for the very first time. He has such a willing attitude and was eager to please. So far so good and we are exciting to hear how he progresses over the coming weeks.
I also stopped by Gemma Tutty and Phil Makin's training yards. Shahnaz who is trained by Gemma Tutty was looking incredibly well. I'm sure she has grown and strengthened for her winter break. She will come back into work around Feb time. Our Sioux Nation filly trained by Phil Makin is now starting to canter upsides and although she is big girl, she looks much stronger. Over the next six weeks we will start to step her work up with a view to a possible debut in the first few months of 2023. Kalabana will run towards the end of this month as we look to continue his education. He is a lovely long term prospect who will ultimately be wanting three miles over fences.
