Suzy Smith Racing - News 2018 - 2019
We see this month as the start of our new season, where both horses and staff come back refreshed from their holidays and dreams begin.
Our last runner was Onehelluvatouch at Uttoxeter where she put in a good performance to come fourth in a three mile hurdle. She jumped and travelled well and is ready to go again when it finally rains!
The horses out at grass summered extremely well however, for having no rain and are now starting work on their waistlines! They will be walking and trotting for several weeks and will resume cantering in August, with the majority of our runners coming out in October and November depending on the going - of course.
We've collected 'Benny' a two year old gelding by Jet Away out of Money Money Money who is owned by Jane Reece of Hook Lane Roobee fame! He has come in for four to six weeks education and light backing. He is currently being long reined and we should be on him in a week or so. He has been a model pupil so far and very quick to learn.
As part of Racing Staff Week we held a staff party and competition night - a series of games where we split into two teams "Young Uns versus Old Uns" which if I remember rightly I'm sure the "Olds" won!!
On the staff front, we are really happy to say that Chloe has turned full time with us now and has done particularly well over the last month gaining both her First Aid at Work and Fire Marshal qualifications! Our newest member of staff, Kathryn, has been accepted on to the British Racing School's nine week course commencing in August which marks the start of her Level 2 Apprenticeship with us. Congratulations to them both!
