June is historically a busy month, and this month has been no different, though we haven’t had too many runners in the last week. Those that have run have on the whole continued to run with credit, culminating in a first, and much deserved victory for Clearing. Clearing is the latest home-bred foal of our mare Spring Clean to see the track, and having shown plenty of promise in her first four runs, duly made all the running under Joe Fanning to get off the mark at the fifth attempt. Joe thought she still had a bit left in the tank, so we hope she can double her winning tally in the coming weeks.
Intomist has continued to fly the flag for us in recent weeks, and followed up his recent hat-trick with two very good seconds. His handicap mark has shot up from 59 at the start of his winning streak to 75 now, and he is currently enjoying a well earned break in a field. However, when he comes back he will have to show further improvement if he is to add to his profitable season so far, but that is not out of the question after his progressive campaign so far.
At the other end of the scale, Persian Marvel has been retired having shown himself to be badly out of love with the game in his last few runs. It is such a shame, as he is one of the best looking horses I have ever bought, but unfortunately he just doesn’t want to do it on the track. Pip is currently looking for a nice home for him where he can hopefully excel at a different pursuit.
We have a few entries coming up in the first couple of weeks of July, and will be especially hoping to enjoy a litle bit of luck at our local Epsom evening meetings every thursday through the month.
