2018 End of Season Review
on 30 December 2018

We closed our 2018 account with a total of 24 winners from 252 runners (including foreign runners). 

The highlight of the year had to be Soto Sizzler winning at Glorious Goodwood, bagging £46,688 for his delighted owners. This was the 3yo son of Mastercraftsman's first win, but he had shown plenty of promise in his previous starts at Newbury and Goodwood. This gelding will likely be a stronger 4yo and should be a decent staying horse next season. 

Seinesational won the most races, clocking up a total of 4 wins and finishing the season on a career high mark of 77. His wins came over a range of distances, starting at 1m3f and finishing at 2m. He will be campaigned at 2m next season and should be able to improve further. 

Solar Flair was the highest rated horse in the yard, rising to 102 in the summer. His one win of the year came at Newcastle in June, but he won almost £40,000 in prize money during his busy season.

Secret Art also secured just shy of £40,000 for his owners, winning two races and finishing the season on a respectable mark of 99. Not bad for an 8yo!

Author's Dream picked up 4 consecutive races in the early part of the year (the first of which was actually in December last year). Kingston Kurrajong, Unit of Assessment and Archimento all won 2 races each with seven other horses also winning throughout the season. 

Some exciting 2yos surfaced with Sir Busker winning a nice 6f Newbury Maiden in September for owners Kennet Valley Thoroughbreds. He is a big strong horse and is certainly one to look forward to for 2019.  Gordon Roddick's homebred Dancing Warrior won on the third time of asking over 5f at Chepstow in August, then picked up the all important black type when finishing third in a Listed race at Chantilly in August. 

We have an exciting team of youngsters and are looking forward to getting the 2019 season underway.
