I was delighted to see Hudson Yard winning well yesterday at Exeter after 661 days off the track. She had some good form to her name in an English Point-to-Point, but has had a few niggles since she ran mid division in a bumper for Emma. Her owner, Aiden Devaney has been very patient and really we have just been the beneficiaries of that patience. Thankfully we found a race that probably didn’t take much winning, but she is bound to improve for the run, and will jump a fence in time too, so exciting times will lie ahead with her providing we can have a clear run now.
Hudson Yard wins after 661 days off the track.
We haven’t had too many runners recently, but thankfully those that are running, are running well. Datsalrightgino was 2nd in another bumper on Monday, and Rose O’Hara was 3rd on the same card in another bumper. Both were arguably quite unlucky as they met trouble in running, and should be able to win their bumpers this spring.
Sandaroc was a very promising 2nd on her hurdling debut at Bangor last week. She was disappointed in a bumper prior to Christmas but benefited from a wind operation, and she has the size and scope to progress from here. Tallow for Coal was 3rd in a novice hurdle at Plumpton, where the track didn’t appear to suit him. He had been 2nd at Uttoxeter beforehand, and a return to a more galloping track should see him win a maiden hurdle next month.
