Dave Young­man with the lat­est news and gos­sip from HQ

Avery big thank you to all those who have joined my rac­ing club. And what a start for you with ANNA MEDICI win­ning three races on the reel for us.The com­ing weeks till the end of the sea­son in Novem­ber will be very ex­cit­ing for all my mem­bers with plenty of as yet un­raced horses to run for us and some first time out two-year-old win­ners to look for­ward to. I love this time of year as we see the ju­ve­niles com­ing to the course for their first races and we see if they are as good as we have thought on the gal­lops in their work.

MANY of you have asked to see a pic­ture of Zuzanna my trusty as­sis­tant at my rac­ing club so you can put a face to the voice on the phone. I know you all en­joy your talks with her about rac­ing when you speak to her,so here is her pic­ture,taken at New­mar­ket.Zuzanna par­tic­u­larly likes the time we spend with Sir Michael Stoute at his Freema­son Lodge and Beech Hurst yards.If the rac­ing club con­tin­ues to grow as it is at present we will have a record num­ber of mem­bers next sea­son.

TRAINER Roger Var­ian had Ja­panese jock­eyYuga Kawada rid­ing work re­cently. He rode with Jamie Pig­gott on the Limekilns.Jamie,son of the great Lester,is a fine rider like his fa­mous fa­ther.The twoyear-olds at the Var­ian sta­ble are now do­ing faster work and the yard should have some nice win­ners be­fore the sea­son end.

WORK is near­ing com­ple­tion atWar­ren Place and horses will soon be go­ing into train­ing there again. Godol­phin will do well and it will be nice see­ing for­mer Henry Ce­cil as­sis­tant Mike Mar­shall and Shane Fether­ston­haugh back at the fa­mous yard. I am look­ing for­ward to spend­ing time around there again like I did with Henry Ce­cil for so many years. Sheikh Mo­hammed will be hav­ing An­thony Stroud, David Loder and Jonno Mills do­ing the buy­ing of the new year­lings now that John Fer­gu­son is no longer in­volved at Godol­phin.

SIR Michael Stoute has some lovely ju­ve­niles this year. The un­raced pair of colts MIDI and RE­GAL RE­AL­ITY are both work­ing re­ally well. PRI­VATE VIEW is a filly by Ex­ceed And Ex­cel that has been catch­ing my eye in her work on the gal­lops lately. She will need fast ground to be at her best, most prog­eny by Ex­ceed And Ex­cel do.

NEW­MAR­KET has the open week­end on the 16-17 of this month and I hope to meet as many read­ers as pos­si­ble there. Char­lie Ap­pleby will be open­ing Moul­ton Pad­docks for Godol­phin this year and that is worth a visit. Char­lie told me he will have all his sta­ble stars on show for you to see. Trav­el­ling head lad Tony Garth is al­ways worth talk­ing to,he has so much rac­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

SIR Mark Prescott was de­lighted to get ANNA MEDICI into the win­ner’s en­clo­sure re­cently for Neil Greig as he has been such a loyal owner over the years at Heath House.EASYWIND had a sighter re­cently and is also now ready to win for owner Chris Jenkins. Sir Mark is hop­ing to place AL­TER­NATE ROUTE to ad­van­tage soon for owner PJ Mc­swiney and the Os­borne House Syn­di­cate. This horse has been work­ing in much bet­ter fash­ion since be­ing gelded and looks sure to land a nice touch.
