We were delighted to get off the mark for the season yesterday when Threapwood won a very competitive Mixed Open by 8 Lengths. He travelled very strongly which allowed myself to ride him more prominently then can be the case, Threapwood was always in the leading group and took the lead three out and then extended his lead all the way to the line to beat some very experience Open horses. (Picture above is of Threapwood jumping the last)
We were also delighted with Our Crusades third in the intermediate race before Desert Sting rounded off a fantastic day with a very close fourth place in the Restricted. They were both ridden very well by Ed.
We have entered Quantum Theory,Sparkle Star and Nortonthorpelegend at both Barbury Castle and Thorpe Lodge this Sunday
