Charlie Mann Charity Golf Day

Charlie Mann Charity Golf Day

On Monday 24th June Charlie hosted a Charity Golf Day at Calcot Park in aid of JT McNamara. The weather held out and it turned into a very successful golfing day! Many Trainers, Owners and Jockeys turned up to support, all contributing to the pot. Mikael Magnussons team won for the 3rd year in a row – although it is debatable as to whether they actually did score a birdie at every hole! Golf was followed by lunch in the club house where the raffle was drawn and a successful auction took place. We will update you on the grand total but we expect that it is will be in the region of £7,000.

We ran Yazdi at Royal Ascot on Saturday in the Queen
Alexandra, he ran well and gave his owners a nice day out. I didn’t get to
speak to the jockey afterwards as Silvester de Sousa had already walked off-flat jockeys are very different!. After that run I would expect him to come on  and run well in a
Novice Hurdle. over the same distance.
The only entries we currently have are for Van Diemens Land who is in two races on Sunday at Uttoxeter and will more than likely run in one of them. He worked well on Saturday  and should be there or there about at the weekend.
The other horses on the yard are looking very well indeed. They all have a lovely shine to their coats and are buzzing on the gallops. Looking at upcoming races Victor Leudorum may go to Market Rasen a week Sunday for 2m
6 f Novice Chase , there is also a h’cap there and possibly a Novice Chase that
we could look at before Market Rasen. He is in good form, he looks very well
and is moving nicely. I am looking forward to running him.
I am looking to run Western King at Newton Abbott on 8th
July in a Beginners Chase. He is in good form and is now moving better after
having his back and withers treated.After disappointing us last time out I hope he runs up to his merits this time.

Scepticism our new 3yo Juvenile Hurdler is a cracking horse. Noel
has been in to ride him regularly, he works very well and has been schooling beautifully
– he seems to be a natural. He has filled out so much and I think he has grown since he has been at Neardown, I am very excited about his future.
He is ready to run and will do so when he is sold!
