Clearance - Horse in Training


  • 8 year old Bay Gelding
  • Owner:
  • He has shown plenty on his first two starts over hurdles and is a winner waiting to happen. We should not of led last time as he put the brakes on a bit. A loose horse did not help him at Fontwell the second time either. He is well handicapped and I am really looking forward to a good summer with him.
Eagle Court - Horse in Training

Eagle Court

  • 6 year old Bay Gelding
  • Owner:
    Mr Alan Potts
  • Bought cheaply out of Tom Wards yard in December he has already been a good second and won for us. His win at Salisbury was slightly unexpected as we considered he needed further. We still do think he needs further and he will get the chance over longer distances as the Summer progresses. A lovely big strong horse who is very enthusiastic worker!
Hello Zabeel - Horse in Training

Hello Zabeel

  • 5 years old
  • Owner:
    The Staverton Owners Group
  • Very pleased to have this fellow join the team. He has good form over 6 and 7 furlongs and can run on turf or the all weather. One thing he does require is decent fast ground. We are ready to go with him as soon as we have the right race. He will run under the Staverton Owners Group flag but unlike the others of that domain he actually belongs to Charlie Baynes who also has a share in Mr Zee.

Mr Zee

  • 5 year old Bay Gelding
  • Owner:
    The Staverton Owners Group
  • This horse has been a revelation this Spring with two wins at Windsor. He must go right handed which does limit his options but he is a very difficult horse to pass when in front. We will keep him going during the Summer but we might well consider a career over hurdles in the Autumn. He has a wonderful group of owners who know how to enjoy his success!
Snow Eagle - Horse in Training

Snow Eagle

  • 2 years old
  • Owner:
    In The Mix Racing
  • This very big two year old colt will be ready to run in the Autumn. Being so big means he has taken a bit of time to grow into his frame. It could even be that he well be a three year old before we see the best of him. He is however improving in every way as time goes on. He is an exciting addition and could be anything!
Social City - Horse in Training

Social City

  • 7 years old Bay Gelding
  • Owner:
    Wayne Clifford
  • Having had a little break to freshen him up he is now ready to race. He will be campaigned on the flat and on the All Weather initially at least. A lovely big horse who is a thorough stayer. It is good to have a horse in the yard again from Wayne & Sarah Clifford for whom we have had plenty of success in the past. Coole Cody and Sporting Boy were the best but plenty of other winners also.
Under the Twilight - Horse in Training

Under the Twilight

  • 5 year old Bay Mare
  • Owner:
    Mr Roger Gould
  • A lovely filly who is a joy to train. She eats everything and never does a bad piece of work. She won well at Salisbury recently before running a absolute stormer in a good race at Newbury to finish third. She may well step up to 7 furlongs whilst the ground is quick but further down the line a stiff 6 furlongs on Good to Soft even Soft would be perfect.
We're Reunited - Horse in Training

We're Reunited

  • 5 year old Bay Gelding
  • Owner:
    The Staverton Owners Group
  • He loves the fast ground at Bath and he duly won the race we had targeted for him for a while at Bath recently. He will run there again most of the Summer and he will win again. Another really good fun group of owners.
Wotastunner - Horse in Training


  • 6 year old Bay Gelding
  • Owner:
    R J H Unity Farm Holdings
  • He has been with us a couple of months now and is progressing well. He has had a couple of runs in a Maiden Hurdle and in a Point to Point. Although he did not achieve much we think that was due to a bad back which we have now sorted out. He is a lovely big strong horse and I should think he might go straight over fences in November time.
