The end of this week/next week sees us entering a very busy stage of the season. I hope to run 6 different horses over this period!
these are:
Tibibit at Newmarket tommorow evening, This looks a decent maiden but has a smaller field than the handicap she was entered in, it is her debut on turf and it should be a good starting point after a while on the sidelines.

General Allenby at Beverley on Monday.  This race is just the right sort for this horse after his more encouraging run at Catterick last week (4th) and I hope he will go well

WINNER!!

Gypsy Rider struck at Brighton on his second start of the season, gamely holding off his opposition to win by a head!  I am hoping that this may mean better runs from the other horses who may have disappointed in their first runs this year.
  General Allenby runs tomorrow at Lingfield where hopefully a step up in trip may prompt him to show some form. the two year olds have started to up their work and are looking good!

It was a shame that Tibibit didn't keep up her run of good form the other evening at Kempton but an injury has come to light that will keep her off the track for a bit but hopefully she will be able to get back on the racecourse by late summer. 
  This is a bit of a blow to the yard but as long as the filly is ok that is the main thing.
  The 2yos are enjoying being in work and it will be great watching them develop.

Tibibit has run two very good races in the last week, agonisingly finishing second on both occasions, by no more than a nose and a neck, she holds entries on Saturday at Kempton and Monday at Wolverhampton, fingers crossed she will get her head in front.

Two 2yos arrived last night from pre training with Mark Palmer, both looking great and had their first canters in Lambourn this morning, they are both lovely sorts and hopefully they will prove to be as good as they look.

2017

The team at Henry Tett Racing are gearing up for a busy 2017. last seasons 2yos (all officially now 3!) are all back in work to get ready for the flat turf season, these will be closely followed by the 2yos (last years yearlings) who come in next week.
the older horses are on good form with Tibibit having run nicely in a couple of maidens.
Hopefully this will lead to plenty of winners around the corner!

Busy Week!

Gypsy Rider
was balloted out from Southwell so I continue to look for a suitable race, this horse is going realy well.

Play the Blues
 is declared for a 1m Apprentice handicap on Wednesday evening, fingers crossed for a good run.

Light Gunner
 is entered for a 1m Maiden at Newcastle on Friday, it is a long way to go for a strong race with a horse that still has maturing to do but with a shortage of suitable races I hope the trip will be worth it as regards to helping him turn out to be a smart horse next year.

So far this year has seemed to give us pretty incessant bad weather, warmish temperatures and few clear days and only one real short cold snap (enough for Newbury to be abandoned and Alanjou missing out on running) most of our jumpers being ex flat horses are not appreciating this soggy ground as well as lots of meetings being cancelled so we are having a bit of a drought of runners, Rectitude runs this evening over a mile, this is a change of plan from our original route of her becoming a jumper but with her being fit and well having a go at what she was bred for will probably not be a bad thing!

Happy New Year!

It has been a fairly quiet end to 2015 and start to 2016, the heavy ground has made it difficult for my jumpers, most who would appreciate better ground, hence a couple having a go back on the flat on the all weather.
   The yearlings are broken in and going well and should be back in the yard for the end of the month if anyone fancies coming and taking a look!
Our next runner will probably be Rectitude back on the flat probably over a mile then Alanjou will have a run over fences within the next three weeks hoping to build on a nice enough debut for us at Ascot last month.

There have been a couple of disappointing runs in the last few weeks, however all of the horses have their own excuses so it hasn't got me too worried! Play the Blues definitely didn't get 1m2f so it is back to 1m for her, Moveable Asset was running against a high class field at Kempton but didn't have a huge amount of zest, a bruised foot has since come to light as well as headgear probably needing to be re applied, Rectitude was running very nicely at Plumpton but faded quickly, she did finish and has had a long layoff so we will see next time how much she needed the run.

Play The Blues runs tomorrow at Wolverhampton in the 4.40, she is in great form having been 4th last time out after a long break, as well as being drawn 2 which is a nice draw. However she will have to put up with an extra furlong to run and hopefully not get caught in traffic but I hope she will be there or there abouts.
   Hopefully Moveable Asset will run at Stratford on Thursday in the 2m Novices chase, It looks like it will be a pretty competitive race though.

The two yearling as going nicely and will hopefully have riders on board within the next 2 weeks, it was nice to see another Lawman colt in Marcel winning the racing post trophy at the weekend
