A fun yet raining day at Huntingdon yesterday. Here is Mythical Legend coming back in after her race. Adam Wedge wanted to allow Mythical to get into a nice early rhythm, and give her a chance to see her hurdles but with the field going a good gallop early on it probably took her out of her comfort zone causing her jumping to suffer. She stayed on really well and galloped all the way to the line. It was only her third race over hurdles and that showed on the first circuit when she needed several reminders to concentrate. She was on-and-off the bridle at the back of the pack and looked set to finish completely tailed off, but she made strong late progress to finish a respectable sixth of 16. On this evidence she clearly needs a stiffer test so perhaps a step up to 3m is called for now that she can move into handicap company. #emmalavelle #adamwedge #huntingdonracecourse #nationalhuntmare #bonitaracingstables #novicehurdle #eveningracing #britishracingclub #mythicallegend
Audora was withdrawn from her race yesterday on veterinary advice after she was kicked by another horse at the start. A very unfortunate event but the vets made the decision to immediately withdraw her as there was a small cut on her right hind leg thankfully she is ok. She showed no ill affects afterwards pulling Jerry McGrath's arms out the whole way back after the race. She will now go to Taunton on Wednesday evening to make her hurdling debut. #audora #martinhillracing #newtonabbot #tauntonraces #novicehurdle #bravehorse #jerrymcgrath #horseracing #nationalhunt #britishracingclub
Today Audora will be making her hurdleing debut at @newtonabbotraces . It looks a rather competitive affair and a big ask of our inexperienced mare, but you have to start somewhere. She goes in to the race fit and well and hopefully will enjoy the experience and give us all a thrill. Jerry McGrath is in the saddle, he has ridden her at home a few times so is familiar with our girl. The race is at 2pm and there are 12 runners. Good luck!
Beautiful scenes on Lambourn gallops this morning with Harry Dunlop and the Club. @harrydunlopracing #stablevisit #lambourn #britishracingclub #flatracing #garswood #filly #gallops #windsorhousestables #harrydunlopracing
Belatrix enjoying the sunshine at Manor House Stables this morning! This warmer weather will do her coat the world of good, she seems very happy at her new home and has settled in well. She is being brought along slowly as she is a small filly with a bit of growing to do. We are really excited to have another horse with Tom Dascombe this season, Manor House Stables is always a treat to go to, the Club will be visiting in June, all members are welcome. #tomdascombe #galileo #filly #manorhousestables #michaelowen #britishracingclub #summer #excitingtimes
Really excited to get back to the races today after a quiet and wet few weeks. Born Legend heads to @wincantonraces this afternoon to take his chances in the 3:45pm Novice's Handicap Hurdle. Tom Garner will take the ride, Tom has ridden Legend before so knows all about his little/large quirks. Hopefully the weather will cheer up a bit for the afternoon. Born Legend won't mind the soft ground, let's hope he enjoys himself today and turns up to the racecourse with his a game. Good Luck to everyone!!!
We popped in to see Born Legend at #oliversherwood Rhonehurst Stables this morning. Such a shame the #Lambournopenday has been forced to cancel tomorrow due to the weather, he was rather looking forward to the attention. Oliver is looking at the race book for next week, he's bucking away at home and ready to go racing. He almost managed to dislodge poor Hannah (with him in video) on Monday in his excitement. #carrots #britishracingclub #goodfriday #rhonehurst #leightonaspell #bornlegend #peterosullivan #lambourn #cheekyhorse #nationalhuntracing #easter

Cardaw Lily enjoying a pick of grass yesterday after her morning's work at #ruthcarr 's Mowbray House Stables. She is looking great and enjoying her work after a couple of months fun and relaxation in the field.

Born Legend heads to @sandownparkracecourse tomorrow to take his chances in the Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at 1:20pm. Harry Beswick will once again be in the saddle, he rides Born Legend at home so knows him and all his little quirks well. Here is Club member Iain with Born Legend after his race at Warwick last time out. He is in good form at #oliversherwood 's and let's hope he will enjoy the outing and show us what he can do. Good Luck Born Legend! #bornlegend #britishracingclub #sandownraces #matchbookimperialcup #jointhefun #owners #trainers
