White Hart Lady       WINNER

 

Sire : Doyen     Dam : Hats and Heels

Bay Filly 2014

Handicap Mark : 85

Trainer – Harry Fry

A very promising mare who has yet to fulfil the promise she showed when winning her bumper at Aintree.  She had a few niggling injuries last year and was a little unlucky in some of her races.  She will start off over hurdles next season before going chasing.  She has schooled very well over the larger obstacles and Harry Fry remains convinced that she will fulfil her potential and still thinks she could be just as good as Whitehotchillifili.  He cannot believe that a mare of this quality has only got a handicap mark of 85 and is sure there will be loads of winning opportunities for her.

Howdilyoudo             WINNER                    

Sire : Presenting     Dam : Little Dil

Bay Filly 2015

Handicap Mark :

Trained by Jamie Snowden

She is an attractive and very well bred bay filly and is one of top stallion Presenting’s last daughters as he died during 2017.  She is Little Dil’s first foal and her two subsequent foals sold for 37,000 and 50,000.  I bought her as a foal and it looks like I got a bargain!

Little Dil is a half sister to Whatyouthink (also by Presenting) who was a winner of 8 races and £177,000 including a 3rd place in the Irish Grand National and achieved a handicap rating of 152.  Her other half brother, Whodoyouthink won five races and £73,000 and achieved a handicap rating of 142.  If our filly follows in their footsteps we will all be very happy.

She has taken well to her training with Jamie Snowden who says she is a lovely mover with a touch of class about her.   She prefers good ground so we have enjoyed summer racing with her this year and she has performed well over hurdles, winning two at Worcester and Uttoxeter, and has finished 2nd plus 3rd on three occasions - in fact in her ten races to date she has only finished out of the first 4 on two occasions!  She is only a 6 year old and is progressing very nicely and we are very excited about her future.

Esprit de Somoza             WINNER                    

Sire : Irish Wells     Dam : Topaze de Somoza

Bay Gelding 2014

Handicap Mark :

Trained by Jane Williams

I am delighted we have acquired Esprit De Somoza on loan for the rest of his racing career from Jane Williams who will continue to train him for us, so will maintain our long standing association with Culverhill Farm.

He was a very exciting horse for Nick Williams who bought him as a yearling for £26,000 and won the Chatteris Fen Hurdle at Huntingdon in January 2018 in impressive fashion as a 4 year old. He was quietly fancied for the Fred Winter at The Festival 2 months later but finished 14/22 that day. He is now a 7 year old having run in good company throughout his career, winning another hurdle in February 2019 and a Jumpers Bumper at Kempton in January 2021. He has had a Hurdle Handicap of 133 and a Chase mark of 125.  We have negotiated with the Handicapper who has agreed to reduce his hurdle mark to the same as his current Chase mark of 121 which should mean he will be very competitive.  He has had decent hurdle runs for us during our Summer 2021 campaign and topped them off with a fantastic and impressive win over fences at Wincanton in December 2021.  Jane Williams has done an amazing job with him and Chester Williams knows him well and has been able to bring out the best in him.  We very much look forward to seeing how he progresses now he has won over the bigger obstacles.

Fairy Gem                             WINNER     

Sire : Shantou        Dam : Mystic Maisie

Bay Filly 2016

Handicap Mark : N/A

Trained by Harry Fry

Our exciting mare, Fairy Gem, has recently joined the Harry Fry team.  She has been pre-trained in Ireland and should be ready to run in the Autumn 2021.  She is a full sister to both Outofthisworld and the very talented Angels Breath who both, sadly, suffered career ending injuries.  He was rated 153 over fences and was the ante-post favourite for the Arkle Novices’ Chase at the Cheltenham Festival 2020.   Outofthisworld was a very exciting winner for Chasing Gold and we were devastated when she was fatally injured at Kempton last year.

Fairy Gem has been a late developer and, although not very big, she has the heart of a lion and a great attitude.  We have been very patient with her, and our patience was rewarded in December 2021 when she won on her racecourse debut!  She won her bumper at Plumpton, coming from off the pace and put in a very determined effort to get her nose in front!
