Following Boxing Day all the horses were given Flu and Herpies vaccinations. We do these every six months in the hope they boost the horses immune systems and help them stay healthy. Over this period the majority of the string are freshened up for a spring campaign.
We have been pleased with Condaw Caitlin’s aptitude to hurdling and, although it is difficult to say how good a horse she has beaten, she has won both her hurdle starts very well and shows a useful turn of foot in the closing stages. We have options going forward and she seems to thrive on racing so we will continue whilst she is in good form.
Return Ticket ran well at Catterick but will probably benefit from coming back to two miles. A big galloping track will also help him as he is not the best at fiddling fences!
It goes without saying that we were disappointed Waiting Patiently met with a setback when chipping a bit of bone off his joint but he has come out of his operation well and will make a full recovery.
