Half the horses have been sent up to a farm on the edge of Exmoor which is in sight of us at Shutscombe. We have used the farm for grazing frequently in the past and the horses really benefit from the experience.

Flat racing is about to start to start early in June and Howardian Hills will be ready to run as soon as there is a race for him.

We have two interesting two year old’s in the yard, a colt and a filly both by Cannock Chase the well bred ex Sir Michael Stoute horse who won a group 1 in Canada and also won at Royal Ascot. The Cannock Chase filly is more forward than the colt and will run in the latter part of this year. She is the only foal of the winning Dutch art mare Legal Art and her grandam Sosumi was a 100 rated two year and ran in the following year’s 1000 Guineas. The filly will be on our for sale page shortly and there are also shares available in her on the racehorse trader.
