Many placed runners for us over this last week so the horses are coming into form and will enjoy a run or two under their belts.
We have had horses eliminated again over the weekend but we have plenty of entries from Tuesday of next week onwards and should have a few runners in the second half of next week.
The entries page will list all of those involved and link to the individual races.
We have runners on most days for the rest of this week, starting at Haydock and Wolverhampton tomorrow. We are even having a rare trip to Lingfield on Thursday with Qaaraat and Klopp.
The entries page of the main website will show our runners and link to the races.
No runners for us for the remainder of this week but possibilties for Wolverhampton on Tuesday/Wednesday.
We have entered Puchita, Qaaraat, One One Seven & Thawry for Wednesday and the Entries page of the main website will link to further information.
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.
We have 2 declared runners for the hoped for resumption on Monday at Newcastle being TATHMEEN & PUCHITA. Our other entries were declared but eliminated.
We have 4 entries for the card at Newcastle next Thursday. Details will appear on the entries page of the main website.
Racing is receiving massive entries for the resumption. We have made entries for a couple of your 2yo’s for the races at Newcastle on Tuesday. This is day 2 of the resumption.
They are: BRAVE SIR ROBIN & UPSIDE DOWN
See the entries page on the main site for all our entries.
It is full stream ahead for racing to resume behind closed doors on Monday. The BHA have produced their protocols which can be viewed on their website via the link below. All 33 pages of them !
BHA Behind Closed Doors Protocol
We are in full support of the resumption of racing and have made 4 entries for the first day. There are 369 entries for Newcastle of which 120 will actually be able to run, spread over 8 races and 2 divisions. Ten races with a maximum of 12 runners per race.
Our entries are TRAVELLER, TATHMEEN, PUCHITA & QAARAAT and full details can be viewed via the entries page of our main website and then through the various Racing Post pages.
The BHA released a further update last night, detailing the race meetings for the opening days of the resumption.
Plans are now advancing to resume racing with an 8 race card at Newcastle on Monday 1st June and run both Guineas at Newmarket later that week.

This can be from 1st June if certain criteria are fulfilled. You can read the full BHA statement in their press release below.
BHA Press Release – 11th May 2020
With the Government now giving their lockdown update on Sunday, Racing Industry leaders will meet on Monday 11th May to discuss the announcement.
They will make a statement afterwards which will hopefully bring some clarity.
We understand the process has been undertaken to select the racecourses to stage the first phase of the resumption of racing. We still expect a fixture list and programme of races for the resumption to be published this week.
