Wed Dec 4

What a sunrise!

No filter needed for course 336y this morning, heading to the gallops for 1st lot

~Heath Ride~

Towards the end of each course the trainees are lucky to experience riding on the Famous Newmarket Heath training grounds, and what a view you get from the top of Warren Hill

Method in the madness?

Course 336Y did some training in the simulator room this morning with Jockey Coach Richard Perham! They looked at their position when riding and how it’s very different to normal so therefore requires training. They then went on to work on balance before moving onto the simulators

Well done to 𝗠𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗮𝘆 𝗗𝗼𝗱𝗱 (course 324a) who had his first Point to Point ride last weekend and finished 2nd! Great start to a promising career pointing.

Well done to 𝗡𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗔𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗼𝗻 (course 206) who passed his English & Maths exams ready for a new career path in the Fire & Rescue Service, after 12 years in racing including a spell with his jockey’s licence.

Well done to 𝗔𝗻𝗻𝗶𝗲 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝘂𝗱𝗿𝘆 (course 306) who’s horse Angel Breath won at Ascot on Saturday (📸 @britishhorseracingauthority
