News from R Jay Ward Racing Ltd



Monte is ready for tomorrow but we have the worst draw ever being drawn six of six! Cliff Lee will take five pounds off our top weight and whilst I am always one hundred and ten per cent behind our horses I feel the draw may hinder our chances .. Nine p . M. And I have just done my rounds and Monte is snoring merrily ! He looks amazing and as long as he comes home in one piece we will be happy ... Ypres ( stu) is almost at the end of his winter hols and we are thinking another two weeks and shoes on !! He is at present in the front yard overlooking the paddocks though has an adjoining box with the Showcasing filly ( Gloria) and seems to be in lurve !! She was a little ahead of herself so we came off her though today she went out and so begins her season in earnest though " steady away " is the order of the day . She is a lovely filly and has rested , eaten and grown ! High hopes harboured by all ! Heavenly Gait has had a slight setback but is back in full work and makes her flat debut on Thursday at Newcastle over a mile and a half ... Streetwise and Never Say also run at Newcastle on Wednesday and all are in great shape so fingers crossed for all as a busy week beckons . It is nice to get busy again as the old saying goes .." They don't win races at home" !! I may even put myself forward for a day out !! Peterhouse is jumping out of his skin and he went on the walker this evening as I need to even out the amount he eats and his work !! Pastoral Dreams ( two year old colt) has just begun to be put through his paces and taken to faster work like a fish to water . He loves the game and he too looks amazing in his coat . Embers Burn ( floats and really impressed this morning so I was informed by his rider ) has a great attitude eats everything and truly looks amazing in his coat . Rory .. Our dear Rory !!..!!.. Is bursting at the seams moved back into his old stable and really does seem to understand that .. It s almost time!! Some of the big cup races have been discussed though as yet no difinitive plan . Sweetness and sweety have been enjoying the paddock and the foal grows daily and is chewing hay with mummy and trying a few mare and foal nuts ! She has truly captured the hearts of all in the yard and is so brave and inquisitive and such fun to be around . She has already double barrelled me ( definitely mummy s girl) !! Leeds on sky again tomorrow.. Painful though I have to watch !
