Mukhadram x Hoh Chi Min
The Mukhadram is a real looker and was a stand out at the sales. He is a yard favourite. He has done very well since he went into Karls yard. He is already going to the gallops and is doing very well.

We had a fantastic Saturday at Ontoawinnner notching up 2 winners from 4 runners on the day.
London Protocol headed to France to compete in Qatar Grand Handicap des Milers over 1 mile on the Polytrack. Tony Piccone was aboard Karl Burke trained 4 year old for the valuable contest run at the picturesque Chantilly track.
Tony bounced London from a good draw and showed tremendous character to lead from pillar to post and pick up over £28 k in prize money for his owners along with French Premiums. He has a fantastic record when running on French soil and Karl has done a fantastic job in targeting his races. He is top of the prize money standings for the Ontoawinner team this year, what a fantastic horse for his owners.
Next up was Crown Vallary. Again Tony was aboard the Karl Burke runner. She had to overcome a wide drawn in the big field to be prominent. This took its toll late on and she faded a bit finishing 8th. She is a nice type and hopefully we can get another win into her before the season draws to a close.
Flying Pursuit was up next. He ran in the very competitive feature race at Ripon over 6 furlongs with Rachel Richardson aboard the Tim Easterby trained gelding. Rachel bounced him out and he showed his usual good attitude to take the lead stands side. As the race unfolded, the far side looked to have the advantage as Flying pulled clear of his rivals on his side. Rachel gave him another fantastically judged ride to win. This was the 3rd win in 5 starts for Rachel and Flying. Running off a mark of 96 yesterday, he is a horse that is improving with age and always holds a lively chance when he gets his conditions.

Finally, Brex Drago ran in a very competitive race at Chemsford with Danny Muscutt taking the mount on the Marco Botti trained runner. He was held up and couldn’t land a blow. This was his first run for some time and Marco reported he had a good blow afterwards. He will be a nice horse running in valuable races on the all-weather over the winter months.
We had another very good month in September, notching 5 winners in the month; the highlight of which was undoubtedly Quiet Reflections return at Naas.
The star daughter of Showcasing had only run once this year at Haydock on quick ground, she then had an injury heading into Royal Ascot and we were delighted to see her line up at Naas in a Group 3 contest over 6 furlongs.
She looked absolutely fantastic on the day and Martin Harley rode her in what was a typical win for the mare. She travelled supremely well on the soft ground and waited for a gap to appear, she then showed her excellent turn of foot to go on to score a shade cosily much to the delight of the attending punters. This was a fantastic training performance from Karl Burke to get her back to her best, what a season Karl is having! She is such a wonderful horse to be involved with, she will now head to Champions Day at Ascot where she should line up against Harry Angel, Caravaggio and many more in what should be a mouth-watering clash of sprinting superstars to round off the season.
Elsewhere we had Quiet Company win at Dundalk at a big price in what was a greatly deserved first success for his owners. He showed tremendous attitude under a fantastic ride by Wayne Lordan to score over a mile at the County Louth track.
We had a very good team of horses head to Ayr for the Gold Cuyp festival. It was a massive disappointment that the event was abandoned. Ayr is always a target for some of our horses and to see it cancelled due to waterlogging was heartbreaking, not only for owners, trainers and jockeys but for the track, the town and the huge loss of revenue felt by all involved.
September is always the time of year that we start to recruit the yearlings for next year. We have been incredibly busy at the sales and have added some real quality to the team for the 2018 season. We have horses based in the U.K. and in Ireland for anyone wanting to dip their toe into ownership for next season. Have we unearthed the next Quiet Reflection? You just never know!

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!
