What a fantastic week-end that was.  We set off on Saturday with chances in 3 big races at Kempton and Sunday, 2 big races at The Curragh and we have come away with a few very near misses and 2 lovely winners.  SCARLET DRAGON ran a fantastic race in the Group 3 September Stakes at Kempton, just getting chinned on the line.  He settled beautifully and…

It has been another fabulous month for Woodway with another 7 winners so far in August including ICE AGE winning the sprint final at Windsor on Monday.  This has been a long term plan for the horse, we qualified earlier in the season, came back to win the last qualifier and then stepped up another notch to win the final worth £45,000 to the winner.…

WHAT ABOUT CARLO - What a star horse he is.  the ground came up perfectly for the old boy at his favourite track Newbury on Saturday and he duly romped home in a listed race.  This was his best performance to date and it just goes to show that old horses can keep on improving as long as they get the right conditions.  We were all thrilled and I was…

What a fabulous Royal Ascot that was.  We only had 2 runners Optimum Time was a bit disappointing, but Scarlet Dragon ran a blinder under top weight in the Wolferton Stakes finishing a very close up 6th.  All being well he will run in the John Smith’s Cup at York in 2 weeks time.   We have had a couple of winners in the last week with Plymouth Sound…

What a fabulous 48 hours we have had!  Firstly, the horses have all been running well in May.  Miss Inga Sock winning twice for the Ascot Colts and Fillies Club, Toulson winning at Nottingham and Waves getting off the mark at Bath. Then came the May bank holiday.  6 runners all with chances is normally a sign that it is all about to go horribly wrong,…

This afternoon will be an exciting one for Ali Dane who has taken up the challenge of riding in the Champions Wilberry Charity Race at Cheltenham.  Ali is already an accomplished rider who regularly competes at Dressage, but she has been coming to ride out at Eve's for the last few months as riding a racehorse is very different style.  She has ridden…

I can't believe we are already in the middle of February.  January was unbelievably busy with house moving, horse moving, re-roofing oh and skiing obviously! So I have moved into the main house at Woodway.  The parents have moved into my grandmother's old house which which is 200 yards down the road and right next to the bottom yard, so they will be…

We didn't quite finish the season off as I had hoped out in Doha with Scarlet Dragon, as unfortunately he picked a bug up on the plane and did not give his true running.  I am happy to say he is now home, well rugged up and recovering from the trip.  It was a very interesting trip and one I would be happy to make again, QREC (Qatari BHA) looked after…

Its that time of year again.  Not many runners (although we have got 4 tomorrow on the all-weather) and the weather is miserable.  However we do have the excitement of the yearlings to keep us warm.  When you are riding yearlings we all have what we call the FF which gives us that inner glow.  FF is fear factor, and when you are on one that is a bit…

Saturday 8 October

That has to be the most incredible week of my training career.  This time last week we had had a wonderful season, with the most amount of winners ever.  Since then we have won 2 races worth over £80,000 to the winner.  Incredible. Accidental Agent, who was homebred by my mother, went to the sales last year and went through without a bid.  This year…
