MEET THE HORSES IN THE RACING CLUB
8yo Gelding (GOLD WELL – SARAH MARSHALL (IRE) (FLEMENSFIRTH (USA)).
He has run in 31 races over 4 seasons finishing in the winners enclose 13 times, he has won his maiden and restricted in April 2017 but he was disqualified due to the jockey not weighing in. So Carumba has his restricted to win again. He jumps for fun, a very straight forward super scopey jump. He runs over 2m 4f to 3miles, on ground ranging from firm to heavy. Winning his 2m4f maiden on the soft and 2m4f restricted on good to firm. Finishing in the winners enclose over 3m on good ground. – Rated 82
7yo Gelding (MIDNIGHT LEGEND – GIVE ME STRENGTH (IRE) (FLEMENSFIRTH (USA))
Lewis as he has been called since a 4-year-old, has finished in the winner’s enclosure 10 of his 14 runs pointing. Winning his maiden and restricted. Also finishing 2nd in an intermediate at Upcott Cross only beaten a length in the 2017-18 season. He might be little but is a tough horse who has form on all types of going from firm to heavy, winning his maiden in the soft and restricted on good to soft. He is not a flashy jumper would rather get close and fiddle than jump outside of the wings. His form is good enough to think he will stay 4 miles – Rated 78
Racing club members share their experiences of being part of the club
- “Very friendly and welcoming yard. Plenty of open days to view the yard and catch up on what is happening. Good days out at the races”.
- “Having been interested in National Hunt racing for many years and a previous member of a large syndicated racing club. I was looking for a small racing club to join where I was treated more like an owner rather than a number. In the last year this has been the case whether its race days or stable visits I have always been made to feel important and welcome. Katie always makes herself available to discuss the individual horses training, welfare and future plans. The transformation of the two horses since they joined Katie is incredible and I very much look forward to the forthcoming season”.
- “A very well organised club, Katie works extremely hard with the horses. She is a very caring person. She always keeps us fully informed on what has been going on through her newsletters as well as making you welcome whenever you visit, especially with young children. The social events at the stables are excellent with lots of wonderful food”.
- “ I am enjoying being a part of Katie B. Frisby Point to Point Racing and Rehabilitation. The horses in her care have improved greatly and it is a joy to see them mature and develop. I have visited the yard quite frequently and am always given a warm and welcome. It is exciting to be part of this racing club and I look forward to more enjoyable visits and seeing ‘the boys’ race”.
- “Great set up, friendly members. Happy to be part of the team”
