On the Road at Doncaster
We head into the St Leger festival with a strong team of runners and plenty of chances across the four days. In the feature races, Nayef Road (Doncaster Cup) and Subjectivist (St Leger) are our big hopes.
After four starts for Nayef Road this season, three of which came in tough Group 1 company, he’s yet to finish outside the first three. He’s chased home Stradivarius twice so the strength of his form is there for all to see and he will hopefully run another solid race.
As for Subjectivist, he’s come out of his 15-length Goodwood win well and deserves a crack at the St Leger. He needs to improve again to win for sure, but he has plenty going for him and we’re looking forward to it.
Raffle Prize held a tentative entry at Doncaster this week but she won’t run. We’ve not been happy with her all year, and though she is sound, fit and galloping, she will not run again until we are satisfied that she is ready to race.
Becoming an owner with Mark
The great thing about the Kingsley Park Partnerships is that you own a share in three horses. That usually means plenty of runners and hopefully an opportunity to own a winner too.
This year, I’m delighted to be able to offer this via the Racehorse Lotto’s raffle, which importantly supports Racing Welfare by donating 20% of ticket sales. It means that for the cost of just a £2 ticket, somebody could become an owner with a 5% share in three of our horses with a bright future.
The October sales are coming up and we’ll be looking for horses with a touch of class in their pedigree. We don’t usually go for sprinters or early types, but just make sure there’s some quality in the pedigree. We hope that by doing that there’s always a chance of finding the next Dark Vision, Rose Of Kildare or Kings Caper, all three of which have been big earners for the Kingsley Park Partnerships.
I’ll have another update when we’re at the sales, so until then get entering and support Racing Welfare. It’s a great cause with a fantastic prize on offer!
