Great to be back racing and the new processes seem to have worked well thanks to a team effort and all round hard work from every aspect of the industry.
We’ve had 4 runners so far and some promise from our 2yo’s so we can look forward to them as the season progresses.
Unfortunately, all 7 of our entries for racing on Thursday and Saturday have been eliminated and it’s tough to try and get runs into the horses just at the moment. We’ll keep trying and the BHA are adding new meetings in an effort to meet demand.
Our next entries are Tathmeen at Haydock on Tuesday and Van Dijk, Daafr and International Law at Wolverhampton the same day.
PUCHITA won her 3rd race at Southwell tonight in the 6.00pm contest and that came from her last 4 runs. She won by 3/4 of a length under Harry Russell.
She also ran well to be a close 4th on Tuesday but the drop to 5 furlongs and a draw that saw her isolated wide, was perhaps not to her advantage. Returning to 6 furlongs tonight, the distance of all her wins, she skipped along and was soon in command, holding on well at the finish.
Our next runners are at Wolverhampton tomorrow night. We then have a break for Flat racing until next Friday
Puchita’s win put us on the 17 winner mark for the year
TATHMEEN quickened up nicely to win again and land his 3rd race of the year in the 6.00pm at Newcastle this evening. He was 2 1/2 lengths clear at the line and holds an entry with the option to return to Newcastle on Tuesday for a 0-75 grade handicap under a penalty. The race is at 6.45pm and we also have our recent winner Mutabaahy and in form Klopp entered for the race.
Tathmeen seems to enjoy the challenges of Newcastle having now won 5 races over the 5 furlong course. He has however also won at Wolverhampton and has scored 6 times for the yard since Antony shrewdly bought him from Richard Hannon at the Tattersalls sales.
His win tonight gave us our 3rd winner of the week and our 15th for the year to date

Following some near misses and taking a while to win, PUCHITA has now won twice in a week and took the 7.30pm race this evening by a commanding 6 lengths.
Not all horses are suited by Southwell but she has taken to it extremely well and has improved for each of her runs there. She could run there again next Friday, 13th March in a similar race and we’ll have to look at all opportunities given the distance of her victory.
Our next runners are on Thursday at Newcastle. See the entries page on the main website for more details
