Another winner for the yard last week when The Twisler got his head in front at Fakenham.  Not having won for nearly two years it was great to see him back in the winner’s enclosure.  The winner was the first for Harry Reed back riding after breaking his arm in a fall back in August and it was good to see Harry back in the saddle and back riding winners. It was a busy week for the...

The jumps season is getting into swing and the yard has plenty to look forward to if the form of the younger national hunt flat racers is anything to go by! Since August, the yard had seen two wins and a second-place finish from three runners in “bumpers” and last week at Exeter that became three winners and a second-place finish from four runners when Any News won comfortably.  ...

In the last update, we were preparing for the Neil Mulholland Racing Club horse, Doing Fine, to run at Warwick.  Unfortunately, the ground went against him that day and he was a non-runner.  He is now being targeted at a race later this month and if you would like to get involved in ownership through the racing club, then please check the racing club webpage and get in touch if you would...

After second-place finishes in the last fortnight from Heavey at Perth and Man of the Sea at Lingfield, it was great to see the yard back in the winners’ enclosure on Sunday when Caroline's Charm passed the post in front at Plumpton.  He was brought into the yard by the Jockey Club South West Racecourses Syndicate, but when their two-year ownership period completed, he was taken ov...

National Hunt Flat races are a starting point for national hunt horses to gain experience of racing before they begin their hurdling career.  These races (often referred to as “bumpers” due to the inexperienced horses that contest them) are an early indicator of the ability of the participants. It is especially pleasing, therefore, to note that since the restart of national hunt ...

On the 21st August, members of the Neil Mulholland Racing Club had a great Saturday afternoon at Uttoxeter watching their horse win the day's big handicap chase.  He was backed into favouritism but needed plenty of cajoling from jockey Robbie Dunne on the way around as he was on and off the bridle for most of the race.  Obviously, however, the crucial part of the race is the winning line...

Three more winners for the yard since the last news post.  These were kicked off by Simply Sin who won on Tuesday 11th at Wolverhampton.  Ridden by Cieran Fallon, a young jockey who has had a great start to his career, Simply Sin ran on really well to win.  He did not have a smooth passage after he was slow away and needed to wait to make his run, but when he got in the clear, he st...

The good recent run of winners was continued this week when Princess T won the last race at Southwell on Tuesday. Molliana had already gone close, beaten into 2nd place earlier on the card, so this race was some recompense for Mollianna's owner Mike Burbidge who part-owns Princess T through his business Dajam Ltd.  Tom Scudamore was on-board for the victory and when challenged on the run-in,...

The last news update recorded the yard's first winners since the shutdown of racing when Man of the Sea, Hidden Depths and Glengar delivered three wins in three days. At the time of writing that post, we could hardly have known that the streak was going to be extended to a magnificent seven winners in a week! Perth is a track that the yard likes to support with runners and they often produce som...

With uncertainty arising from the shutdown of racing in March, and the knowledge that owners were paying training fees with no prospect of seeing their horses on the racetrack, communication led to agreements being reached with owners to give most of the horses the yard a holiday.  This minimised the financial burden of having horses in full training and it was only when we had a degree of co...
