We will be seeing these 3 exciting yearlings this weekend at Tim Easterbys, get in touch to register interest.
We had a very busy week at the Doncaster Premier & Silver sales.
It’s a sale where we have had a lot of success in the past and we are sure we have done some very good business again this year. This years was a fantastic sale with very strong trade. Its gets better every year and Goffs do a tremendous job in selecting trainable, fantastic looking animals who succeed on the track.
We bought 9 in total. You can click on the links below to see full profiles. We will be adding more pictures and videos of them to the site in the coming days.
Ontoawinner had a truly memorable week notching up 6 winners throughout the week, culminating in a superb Saturday that saw Flying Pursuit win the Sky Bet Dash Class 2 handicap at York and Raydiance win the Pat Eddery Listed stakes at Ascot.
Monday got the week off to a flyer when Cosy Club led from pillar to post to record his first victory in Yellow and White under a superb ride from young Danny Sheehy, you will be hearing a lot more about the young Kilkenny native in the months and the years to come, a natural in the saddle. A big well done to Adrian Keatley on his first victory for us, hopefully the first of many.
Tuesday saw London Protocol travel to France for a conditions race. The Muhtathir gelding travelled to Compiegne to run in the Prix De Vignemont with Tony Poccone aboard the Karl Burke trained runner. Tony kept him prominent throughout and pushed him into the lead coming into the home straight and he went onto score, landing over 14000 euro prize money for his owners in the process. Tres Bien.
On Thursday, Seduce Me won the fillies handicap at Newbury where Jim Crowley picked up a spare ride aboard the Karl Burke trained runner as Oisin Murphy got delayed in traffic on the way to the course. Seduce Me loves a bit of cut and hadn’t had her optimum conditions recently. She travelled supremely throughout and went on to score with ease on the day, a fantastic win for all her owners.
On Friday evening, Double Reflection travelled to Chepstow to run in fillies novice auction stakes over 6 furlongs. She was named Double Reflection due to her striking resemblance to our star filly Quiet Reflection. She showed the same love for a bit of cut when landing the prize under an excellent ride from Clifford Lee. This filly now looks very well bought at a price of £7000 by Ontoawinner. She now looks to be one of the bargains of the year.
Super Saturday saw Flying Pursuit win under a superb ride from Rachael Richardson. She bounced the Tim Easterby trained son of Pastoral Pursuits from the gates and led from pillar to post for as convincing a victory that you would see in a ultra-competitive handicap. He won prize money of over £31 k for the race yesterday, a cracking horse for his owners. A huge well done to Rachael and to Tim, whose horses are in such good form.
Our final win of the week came at Ascot where Jim Crowley was once again jockey aboard the Karl Burke trained Raydiance. Raydiance, a £7500 purchase by Ontoawinner was having his third racecourse start having won 1 and placed second in his 2 previous outings. He had won of soft previously and as the rain arrived at Ascot, he tightened into 7/1 from 12’s. He travelled very well throughout and showed a superb attitude in the final strides to get back up to win, black type! A big well done to Karl who is in such a rich vein of form at the moment.
Staxton also ran at York and finished a game second to a well fancied Kevin Ryan runner. This was a very good performance from the Tim Easterby trained horse considering he had to give the winner 6 pound. The first 2 home were well clear of 3rd place and both look smart horses.
Crown Vallary, a beautiful Manduro filly made her racecourse debut at Thirsk on Friday. She had an excellent performance to finish 2nd to a very well fancied John Gosden Dark Angel filly. Her owners can now look forward to plenty of good days out now, a very impressive debut.
6 winners since Monday. If Carlsberg did weeks ….
Cosy Club travelled to Ayr on Monday to run in the 7 furlong handicap where young Danny Sheehy took the mount aboard the So You Think gelding.
Cosy is known for liking a bit of juice but always travels strongly throughout his races on any ground. Danny gave a superbly well-judged ride on the firm ground to score aboard the Adrian Keatley trained runner to land our one hundredth winner to jubilant celebrations at the Ayrshire track.
There are shares available in Cosy Club at a very reasonable price, you can check out his full profile here: http://www.ontoawinner.net/syndicate/cosy-club-2
Tuesday saw London Protocol make it 101 winners.
The Muhtathir gelding travelled to Compiegne, France to run in the Prix De Vignemont with Tony Poccone aboard the Karl Burke trained runner. Tony kept him prominent throughout and pushed him into the lead coming into the home straight and he went onto score, landing over 14000 euro prize money for his owners in the process. Tres Bien.
We do have a small number of shares available in London Protocol. He is a really nice type that has an official rating of 87 and will get his owners to big days out.

David Allan was aboard the 50/1 shot who was drawn in stall 10 for the 12 runner event.
On paper, this looked a very difficult start to his career with previous winners and very expensive purchases in the line up.
In the early stages of the race, David settled Staxton towards the rear of the field. He looked to be travelling very well and started to navigate his way up through the pack and at the 2 marker David asked him to go on and he responded, immediately gaining ground. At the furlong pole, he asked him for one final push, Staxton ate up ground on the leader to get his nose in front at the line.
This was a very taking debut from the colt and he should improve from the racecourse experience. Well done to Tim and all his staff and a big well done to his owners who will be delighted with the colt winning a plus 10 race on debut!
He was drawn is stall 1 for the 6 runner event.
From the stalls, there was a blistering early pace. Ben tucked in behind the leaders and got the horse into a nice rhythm. On the turn for home, Ben began to get busy and Parnassian responded. He was game throughout and Ben rode an excellent race to squeeze Parnassian through a gap to get up and win close home.
This was a well-deserved win for the horse who is very genuine. Well done to Ben, all the team at Spigot Lodge and to his owners who bagged some excellent prize money last night.
Dandy Highwayman lined up in the Class 4 , 3 year old only feature race at Hamilton last night over 6 furlongs with Andrew Mullen aboard the Ollie Pears trained son of Dandy Man.
His form coming into the race read 1-3-2, he was an unlucky loser last day and he lined up in stall 9 with a favourites chance.
Breaking smartly, Andrew kept him prominent to the right of the field throughout. With a couple to go, Andrew began to push and Dandy responded. By the furlong marker, he was a length in front and wasn’t for stopping. He went on to score by just over a length, bagging some nice prize money in the process. A big well done to his owners and all at Ollies, a superb performance from all involved.
He was purchased at last years Goresbridge breeze up sales and we are every bit as excited by this years purchases.
Raydiance lined up in the Daily Racing Specials at 188Bet EBF Novice Stakes at Haydock on Friday where PJ McDonald was aboard the Karl Burke trained Mason colt.
He was drawn in stall 4 for the 7 runner event. Prior to the start of the race, Green Power who he finished behind on debut got worked up in the stalls, after a few anxious moments Green Power was withdrawn and the race began.
On leaving the stalls, PJ came across to the rail and settled Raydiance at the tail end of the field. He looked to be travelling best of all and by the half way point, it was a matter of when the gap would appear. At the 2 furlong marker, the gap came and PJ nudged Raydaince to the lead and he went on to score by just over 2 lengths. A winner at the second time of asking and bagging a Plus 10 for his owners in the process. He is a nice type that will continue to improve. Congratulations to his owners and all the team at Spigot Lodge.
We added 2 lovely new breeze up horses to the string this week, both were purchased at Goresbridge breeze up sales and are trained by Ben Haslam. Both horses did fantastic breezes in excellent times. We do have shares available, click on the links below for full profiles.
The Karl Burke trained Made Of Honour, a beautiful chestnut filly by Casamento won a nice maiden yesterday at Ayr on only her 3rd racecourse start. The talented Clifford Lee took the ride for the 4 runner race over 6 furlongs.
Breaking from the stalls, she stalked the leader all the way under the 2 furlong marker and showed tremendous attitude to kick clear to score by just over 3 lengths. Her form figures are now 2-3-1, she is a cracking filly for the season ahead, well done to her owners.
Elsewhere, Seduce Me finished an excellent second at Nottingham where she was stepped up to a mile. Ridden by Martin Harley, she travelled supremely well throughout and was just denied by the favourite on ground that would be on the quick side for her. She is a very nice type and her turn will come soon.
Yeeow, Zorovan & Cosy club also ran at Ayr yesterday. Yeeoow ran an excellent race under Clifford Lee to finish a gallant third. Zorovans race was run at breakneck speed on the quick ground and he couldn’t land a blow, he finished 6th. Cosy Club faded late on after setting off at a stern pace on ground that was on the quick side for him, his turn will come.
