Stable Access

All though I'm very disappointed in bel sir's run today, there is a very strong wind here today and when he was caught 3 wide without cover going forward he was using a lot of petrol, he has pulled up having a big blow and I am still of the opinion that if we draw a good barrier in the Hanging Rock cup wear he can get cover he will still run a good race Regards Neil

Morning All, Just a quick update in relation to the fires yesterday and last nite. We were lucky and have come through it all safe and no damage so far. The CFA do an amazing job and are unsung Hero's!! Thanks for your thoughts.

Neil's super partnership with the Bel Esprit racehorses continues with a terrific win today at Benalla with Belle ez. Last start she jumped too well from a bad gate,today Dean Holland had a brilliant ride, a good gate meant she could jump, speed in the race meant he could get some cover for her and she positioned up to stalk the leaders and didn't go around one horse when the gap opened up on the fence. Belle ez has always had a great turn of foot although it's only a short sprint, when the gap opened Dean pocked her nose through and off she went. Pulling away to win by a length. It's been a great two days in 2015 with two winners. The horses are happy and running well. Congratulations to all of Belle ez's owners, she has now won 8 races and there has to be more to come. Yippee!

    A fantastic start to the new year! Congrats to you and your team, Neil.

The first day of 2015 was very rewarding when Royal Request won the last race at Murtoa today. He had a super Darwin campaign winning the Derby and to come home and win first up over 1100m was terrific. Dean Yendall rode him, travelling second last until he moved up 3 wide at the 700m point to sweep around to win by a point 2 of a length. A Victorian win had eluded him until today so let's hope it's onwards and upwards for Royal Request. Today's race was a benchmark 64 and he carried 60kgs. Very happy with his will to win.
