Firstly welcome to the very first Dare To Dream weekly racing blog!
As I touched on in the announcement, this will cover all runners for Dare To Dream, and will feature other sections, including a horse’s journey from yard to track.
So without further ado, let’s dive straight into the runners!
Wednesday 14th April – 1.50 Newmarket – Concierge
Three runners this week for DTD, starting with Concierge on Wednesday afternoon.
A horse who ran well in last years Steward Cup, Concierge then won at Bath, and put up a gritty performance at Ascot the time after. Since then, he’s been off a rating of 90, 88, and 86 respectively.
Now off 84, and back on the turf, he seems to be lurking on a very tempting mark.
The race is a 0-100 class 2, meaning many top horses are currently entered, however the gelding takes his chance, and hope for a massive performance.
Concierge ran well last time, would appreciate a bit of rain, but seems in good form.
Wednesday 14th April – 6.15 Kempton – Swiss Flamingo
Swiss Flamingo goes to Kempton for just her 2nd ever racecourse appearance. Once again she will come on for the run, and will be a horse more for handicaps.
She is a half sister to the brilliant Pink Flamingo, who has been a stalwart for both Mick and Dare To Dream.
Hopefully she runs well and keeps progressing as her career goes on.
Nice filly, pleased with her first run, really improved at home.
Longer straight should suit her and hopefully she progresses.
Saturday 17th April – 1.00 Brighton – Street Parade
Street Parade had run in many tough races by the time he arrived here in Epsom. He needs to smoothly go in the stalls, and learn to get past horses again.
After a lot of work with him, he’s slowly getting back to his old self, and this is exciting all at Attwater Racing, and Dare To Dream.
He goes to Brighton with a massive chance, and hopefully he can get his head back infront again.
He needed his last run after a slight break. Should be better after that.
Brighton is an unknown for the horse, but hopefully he can handle the track, and perform well.
From Sales Ring to Racecourse
As promised, we will take you on a journey with a horse the syndicate have recently purchased.
Physics is a 5 year old gelding, who was trained by Henry Spiller before moving to Attwater Racing.
Having won 2 races on the bounce, he suffered an injury, meaning he has been off the racecourse for 6 months.
After being sold to DTD, we had a vet check him out, and make sure everything was fine. After a full detailed check, he is good to go.
He’s been galloping all week, and impressing at home with how well he’s settled in.
Physics is already sold out, with our members excited to see how much potential he has, especially after winning the last twice.
Fingers crossed for 3 great runs, and best of luck to all owners involved.
See you all next week!
