Bahri x Aahgowangowan

2015 | Gelding

Very proud of this horse who was our first two-year old winner. His tally is now five wins over 5-6 furlongs and placed ten times. His last two wins came straight after racing was allowed after lockdown. He has followed up his wins with a third in a Class 3. He has had various issues this year but we are delighted that he is back on the racecourse and hopefully back to his winning ways shortly.

Konik King has had a few runs in Ireland and was 4th out of 13 runners in a Point to Point in December 2021.

At over 17.1hh, he is one of the biggest racehorses you will see and has clearly needed time to mature. We will train him for a start to his UK career this Spring but will see the best of him after his summer break.

Owners: Castle View Racing


Sholokhov x Bilboa

2016 | Gelding

New to the yard Velasco is a lovely gelding who has always been the bridesmaid and never the bride after winning a point-to-point. He has been placed five times including being second four times. We will hope to change that situation! He has had the summer at grass and is now back in work heading for his Autumn campaign.

Owners: Lyn Rutherford, Samantha Toomes, John & Andrew Barker, and Susan Corbett

Wor Verge

Virtual x Hanover Gate

2013 | Gelding

This is big strong gelding by the same sire as Virnon; a horse we broke and trained to win his first juvenile bumper. Virgil has been given plenty of time to mature and did not show much until winning at Hexham in November 2019. Since then he has been ultra consistent with coming 2nd three times and winning twice this season.
