Treackle Tart has run some brilliant races this year, and Doncaster was no exception, it was a competitive handicap chase and she put in a gutsy performance to win well under Paul. She has the most fantastic temperament which makes her popular in the yard. She likes better ground but we will look to try and get some black type on her which she rightly deserves. She is now rated 134, so qualifies for the TBA Elite Mares Scheme, making her a valuable broodmare prospect of the future.
Our final two runners of 2018 both finished second. Ballydine ran a blinder to fill the runner up postion in the Betway Betway Mandarin Chase at Newbury, just beaten by the staying on Carole's Destrier. On Raglan Road was our final runner for 2018 and he ran a brilliant race to finish second at Warwick, only beaten a neck by Top Decision, he loves Warwick, having run some of his best races there.
