Viking FM Take Share in Fast Shot

The breakfast show at Viking FM announced this morning that they have taken a share in Fast Shot to their listeners on The Paul Foster Breakfast Show. We look forward to going racing with Paul, Rosie, Kenny and Viking FM listeners. It will be great craic! We steered Kenny into this horse, as he’s tough, consistent and will get the heart rate up! He’s rated 77 now after three wins this season, so he’s still improving and will get us and Viking FM into nice races and to the good tracks.

Rosie’s looking forward to meeting the jockeys and wearing her new clobber……………I don’t know what I’ve got myself into, but there’ll be plenty of laughs along the way!! Rosie’s next date, in the quest for Mr Right, may have to be with a jockey!

Anyone interested in going racing regularly with Fast Shot, Paul and the team,  as one of his owners, drop Niall a mail at or ring on 01944 738423 

In other news, Fazza goes to Thirsk for the feature race on Saturday. It’s a real good race with a significant prize fund, so we’ll go and do our best but it will be tough. We’re drawn down on the rail so he’ll need to get out and bag a position early to avoid traffic problems.

Ailsa Craig will go to Ripon Monday or Beverely on Ladies Day, 10th August. She was off with a minor problem but is back in full training now.

The two two year olds are working well, and are in the process of being named. They will be out fairly soon. The Ad Valorem should be fairly precocious while the Dubai Destination has shown good work at home, but will obviously improve with age, being by Dubai Destination. They will both be nice types.

Quiet Mountain suffered a tendon injury so we’ve made a team decision to retire him. He won his last three starts so didn’t let anyone down. He’ll be given a year off and has been taken on a free lease by Claire who will spoil him rotten at his new home near Selby, which has passed our rehoming inspection programme. His loyal owners will be looked after and will get involved with other winning horses. I can’t thank them enough for their loyalty over the last few years with this talented but injury prone horse. We had a right few quid on this well handicapped horse each time he ran. A grand ‘oss who I’m fairly sure was a mid 80’s horse.
