Friday 4th March- Stable News
Today we had one runner "Paddys Poem" for Mrs T Brown at Newbury racecourse. Paddy's Poem ran in the 4:35Newbury 4 Mar 2022RacingTV Handicap Chase (For The Geoffrey Gilbey Trophy)(Class 3) (0-130, 5yo+) (2m92yds) 2m½f Soft 13 with James Davies on board. Six runners went to post. The ground was soft and Paddy's Poem was lugging round top weight 12 stone 2.
So we are all really very pleased with his performance to finish 3rd. He coped with the ground but we know he prefers better ground and now he is older probably a bit further in trip would suit him too. He will come on for the run and we will look to his next race. Vova our Godolphin stable staff and stud finalist rides Paddy every day at home and Kirsty and Andrew took Paddy to the races today.
A pleasing run.
