Kachumba now a 5 time winner

Kachumba ran another solid race yesterday at Brighton in the Fillies' Handicap Stakes (Class 5) at 6:40. She had 4 wins last year and has been knocking on the door for another having been placed 3 times already this year. She didn't start well but really got into the race with 2 furlongs to go leaving the field in her wake. We hope the Handicapper doesn't react too strongly! It was great that two of our Bucket List Syndicate members, Tom and Jason were there to enjoy their first win with her. I think they are still buzzing from the experience which is exactly the reason for setting this particular syndicate up and give first timers the chance to experience the thrill of racehorse ownership at an affordable price. It was also a first time win for Henrietta's colours which was very exciting.





Right on trend

So delighted for our owner Vicky Markowiak who had a winner with a home bred on Saturday in the Rockliffe Hall Novice Mediam Auction Stakes at Redcar. FASHIONESQUE had a third on her first appearance at Yarmouth a month ago and has come on a lot for that run. Connor Beasley gave her a great run midfield before shaking her up in the final furlong and beating the favourite on the line. A very pleasing result and well done to the team especially Ali for looking after her so well on the day.


AHT Charity Race Day

Rae Guest Racing and Keystone Law, where Rachel is a Consultant Solicitor, were joint sponsors of the fifth race at Newmarket's Animal Health Trust Charity Race Day on Saturday. Frankie was on board Nonchalance to win for John Gosden and a couple of our owners joined Rae and Rachel on the podium to present the prizes. Judy and Ann were just two of the many owners that came to enjoy AHT's hospitality in the marquee followed by Nile Rogers & Chic in concert. 

AHT is such a worthy charity. Along with important research, their disease surveillance team does amazing work protecting the world's equine population from the threat of infectious disease for which we in racing are all certainly very grateful for.

Many thanks Darren for taking all the photos!


Four seasons in one day

It's been a funny old week with the weather. One minute chilly, then hot and sunny and the next minute flipping to dark threatening skies and downpours. We've had it all!




Twinkle, twinkle

Diva Star showed her competitive attitude yesterday at Yarmouth winning the last race of the day comfortably despite being hampered early on. This was her second run for Rae since being covered with the aim of getting her a win before retiring to stud. Job done! She obviously relished being back on turf and at 7 furlongs finishing really strongly towards the stand side with a commanding lead.
