How'd You Do? / 5/15

Well, you wait weeks for a winner and then you get one two weeks running  :)

Highland Hero completely surprised us by winning a starter allowance steeplechase after disappointing in his last few races. I don't know if it was a change of track, shifting from Aqueduct to Belmont, or the fact that he hasn't raced for a while but really seemed to enjoy himself today.

Lachlan Steven and Cat's Joy picked up a bit of prizemoney finishing 4th and 5th in their respective races. Mayhem finished a disappointing 9th in an ungraded stakes but this level's probably a bit beyond her at the moment so back to the farm for a rest.

Only one out today and Mayhem finally gave us a winner  ;D It's been ages but she seemed to appreciate the slight drop in trip following her second place last week. Fingers crossed the good form continues.

Much better day today  :)

Sent out Mayhem who was stepping up in trip to 9f. After disappointing on her last few starts at around the 7f mark we thought we'd try stepping up - nothing ventured nothing gained - and she finished a good three length second so hopefully this will give her a few more options now.

Also claimed Full Moon Rising who won his race to get his first win in three starts, already placed in both previous starts. So fingers crossed there's more fun to be had with this boy  :)

Another places only day for us today  :-\

Cat's Joy and Bel Air Sizzle both ran in the opening race finishing 3rd and 6th respectively. Think they'll both go back to the farm now for a short break.

Orca Spirit finished last again and will hopefully be heading for a break and possible a try over fences when she's been rested up a bit.

Lachlan Steven finished a fairly creditable 5th picking up a small bit of prize money. He's been on the go for a while and seems to prefer longer distances. Struggling to find a suitable race for him at the moment.

Probably the best horse in the yard Just Like Ice put up a bold display running in the lead for most of the way in the Ungraded Metropolitain Handicap before tiring and finishing third. She's now stakes placed so on the lookout for hopefully a stakes win from her before she heads to the paddocks.

Could anyone possibly offer a place to rest for Catch and Release for 6-8 weeks? Poor thing isn't really enjoying the racing game at the moment  :( I can offer return lodgings in England if and and when anyone needs them. Thanks in advance.

Five runners today, no winners but three bought home prize money.

Mayhem finished 3rd in her NW2 and probably found the trip to sharp. She'll probably run once or twice more before coming home for a rest at the farm in preparation for the start of the racing season in England. Catch and Release finished 6th in the same race.

Mollycoddle picked up some money for 4th place in her maiden. She will probably have one or two more runs before taking a break.

Highland Hero finished 12th of 14 and may need a longer trip. He's another one due for a rest fairly soon.

Highlight of the day, crazy as it sounds, was Lachlan Steven finishing fourth in his maiden SC. The first four home were each seperated by a nose so he wasn't far away and hopefully we can find a similar kind of race and get a win out of him. It certainly helped that we have a 2yo half brother to the winner back at the barn  :)

Anything Goes / Silly but...
« on: February 08, 2010, 11:51:31 am » favourite horse in training, Shaweel, makes his first racecourse appearance for 2010 on Thursday(all being well). None of my friends are horsey so thought here was as good as anywhere to post  :) I looked after his dam as a 3yo and have followed this one, her first foal, since he sold as a yearling. Having run quite well as 2yo he joined Godolphin at 3 and was quite disappointing last year but did have an injury midseason so hopefully a bit of a break will have done him good. First try over 9 furlongs at the new track at Meydan in Dubai so please everyone keep your fingers crossed for him  :D

First winner of the year today with Just Like Ice winning her race  :)

Hit The High Notes also finished second in his race although a long way behind the leader.

Mayhem was very dissapointing finishing 8th of 9 and Catch and Release followed up with her usual last place  :-\

Questions / Activity Points
« on: January 04, 2010, 11:53:14 am »
Hello Everyone

I apologise if this has been posted somewhere before. Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere on the site that has a breakdown of how activity points are allocated. I understand that you gain them through submitting claims, buying or selling horses etc but does doing each of these things earn you a set amount of points or are they dependent on the price of the horse claimed/bought/sold etc.

As I said I'm sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere. I had a look in the FAQs but couldn't see anything specific (admittedly might have missed it  ::) ).

Thanks in advance
