Weekend Update – The flat is back!

The flat season officially kicked off this week and it was fantastic to have it back. OnToAWinner will have plenty of runners every week this season and we look forward to the months ahead. We have our strongest string to date with plenty of exciting 2 year olds to add to the mix, we can’t wait to see them in action.

We were due to have 2 runners yesterday but unfortunately Youartisonfire was found to have a swollen joint on Saturday morning and was withdrawn from the Spring Mile at Doncaster. Its nothing too serious but he couldn’t be risked yesterday.

Yeeoow had an excellent performance at Kempton last week when he finished 3rd in a Class 2 event over 6 furlongs. He was back at the same track this week with Joey Haynes once again taking the mount. Yeeoow broke smartly and held a prominent position in the early stages of the race, he was a length down in 2nd position turning into the home straight. Joey asked for more and kicked for home at the 2 marker and Yeeoow battled on gamely but lost second place late on to finish a gallant 3rd. It was another excellent effort from Yeeoow who is in top form right now, hopefully he can get the win that he deserves soon.

We will have our first 2 year old runner of the year this week as Baie D’amour has been declared to run on Wednesday at Chantilly. This beautiful looking daughter of Never On Sunday is the only UK entrant in the 9 runner event. There is some rain forecast for Chantilly, hopefully it’s not too soft and we can take our chance. Dougie Costello is provisionally booked to ride.

Baie D’amour

All being well, we will be back at the same track on Sunday to watch Quiet Reflection contest the Group 3 Prix Sigy over 6 furlongs. Quiet Reflection won 3 of her 4 starts last year culminating in an impressive win in the Group 3 Dubai Cornwallis at Newmarket. The step up from 5 to 6 furlongs should be ok and we look forward to watching her make her seasonal debut. Again, we will be keeping an eye on the forecast and hope that it doesn’t get too soft and she can take her chance where Dougie Costello is due to ride.

Best of luck to all of our owners making the trip to France this week to watch Baie D’amour and Quiet Reflection run.

Flying Pursuit and Little Lady Katie also make their first starts of the season this week, best of luck to their owners. The flat is back!
