Being Part Of The Action

We have changed the name of our Facebook page to LUCINDA RUSSELL RACING (although you can still access it by typing Arlary House Stables). I am slowly mastering the art of 'Going Live' where a live video is streamed to the Facebook site and you can join us in real time. This does carry a warning that the footage is unedited so apologies…


Schooling Monday

Lots of fabulous rain and the grass is perfect for schooling on. This morning Mark and Gemma brought over horses from Arlary to Kilduff to school and we jumped; Jack Steel, Catchthemoonlight, Newtown Lad, Katalystic, Rising Tide, Revocation, Big River, Vertigo, Moorstown and Sammy B. Pictured are Sammy B and Big River under a darkening sky. I will post a video on the home page of Sammy B leading…


Speedy Saturday

A speedy Saturday with some sharp work on the gallops for those in full training. Enjoying, and coping well with, the increase in pace were Templenaboe, Island Heights, Moorstown, Forest Des Aigles, Spoils Of War, Urban Kode, Mumgos Debut, Lost Frequency, Ballycool, Ceegem, Superior Command and Topham Bay.

Ronnie and Loraine Young were in to see their five year old Katalystic, pictured.…


Turning Out

A damp morning, and having raced on good to soft going at Carlisle we are more enthusiastic about the race meetings coming up; hopefully we will have more runners in the next few weeks.

We certainly have plenty ready to run with fifty horses at Arlary working hard each day, and the overflow yard at the farm housing horses who have just run, and a dozen or so in pre training. 

Turn…


Relief

We were very relieved when Kris Cross, pictured, got up after falling on the flat at the bottom of the Carlisle home straight. Having returned to the track after various issues he was travelling nicely and running a big race when he was closed up and clipped heels, coming down. He seems none the worse this evening and we will find him another opportunity in the next few weeks.

In the same…


Looking Forward

A good work day at Arlary this morning and many of the horses are finally tightening up and looking sharper. Working well were Moorstown, Tantamount, Haul Us In, Final Assault, Imjoeking, Templenaboe and One For Arthur. 
At Wetherby Sky Khan looked to have needed this outing, and his extra kilos showed in the home straight. He jumped well though and we are looking forward to the rest of the…


Tuesday Action

Today we had a couple of canters for those in full training, and some extra jumping work for a couple including OrionInverness, Ryalex, Lost Frequency, Voyage A New York, Island Heights, Miss Tiggy, Thorpe and Spoils Of War. Those at Kilduff had a canter round the fields (pictured) and some trotting on the tracks.

Julian and Karenina Morison Bell were in to see their two mares, Near To Tears…


New Coffee Machine

We had another social morning at the yard, with a deluge of owners coming to see their horses and to test the new coffee machine.

Michael and Jane Kaplan and John Adam are all looking for a deluge of rain to ease the going so that their horses can run. The Kaplan's Revocation had a school over poles in the sand school today and with some rain, he could take up his engagement at Carlise this…


Sunday Fun With The Kelso Members Lowflyers

A most enjoyable morning visit from the Kelso Members Low Flyers Club, pictured, who came to see their horses for this season: Mr Grumpy and Kumbeshwar. 

Having had some coffee, cake and sausage rolls in the log cabin, it was out onto the yard where we had a short parade of some of our horses, including a couple of the new ones. We then watched half a dozen canter on the sand before going…


Vertigo Wins On Debut At Hexham

Vertigo has been on our For Sale page for six months and we took the decision to run him this afternoon before a purchaser was found. A brave decision (It was Scu's idea!) it worked out well when he won the bumper decisively under Alex. He looks a true stayer with an excellent attitude and should go on from here.

Our others ran to a level: Morning Time jumped with more conviction but he…
