WINNER! Ellaal wins his fifth race of 2016 – 12th August 2016

A barmy friday night at Newmarket.  Servere traffic problems.  A massive crowd.  Jess Glynne.  Frankie’s 3000th winner.  Definately a night we won’t forget!

Ellaal is our star horse of the year so far winning his fifth race of 2016.  They went a good gallop but Jimmy got an excellent tune out of our boy who always  carries condition and recently starred in a British Champions Series video to promote the Juddmonte International at York next week.

Ellaal“They went a decent pace in this minor handicap and the first two finished a long way clear.  ELLAAL recorded his tenth win when forging clear under a positive ride at Musselburgh last time. He was switched to more patient tactics off 6lb higher here but got a good pace to aim at and reeled in the long-time leader in the closing stages. Another rise in mark will follow but this admirable 7yo has won five times this year and could continue to be a force in handicaps at around 1m.”

Racing Post, 2016

“Ellaal is our star horse, he was quiet last year but he’s got his confidence back and that’s the highest rating he’s won off. People think he’s unfit all the time but that’s just the way he is. The key is to keep him fresh and enjoying it.”
