It has been a great spell of results for KRB with plenty more winners in the last couple of weeks under both codes.
Present Ranger won again for the Skeltons by taking the novice hurdle at Warwick. Also winning for the Skeltons was Nimby who won the maiden hurdle at Huntingdon in the Paul and Clare Rooney colours. Also winning for the Rooneys was Who’s My Jockey who stayed on strongly to win the Beginners Chase at Hexham for Philip Hobbs. This was his fifth win since being bought by KRB as a store.
Onthefrontfoot made all to win the novice hurdle at Cartmel for Donald McCain and Brian Hughes. He was bought as a foal by KRB.
Savina was bought as a yearling by KRB and she won the bumper at Tramore for Willie and Patrick Mullins. Count Simon has been in great form and made it three wins in a row by jumping super on his chase debut under Jack Kennedy at Punchestown. Trained by Gordon Elliott for Joe and Pat Sloan, Count Simon was bought at Tattersalls Horse in training sale as a three year old.
The good flat results continue for KRB,with Roar winning at Carlisle for Ed De Giles for John Basquill and Kristian Strangeway. He was bought by KRB as a yearling. Also bought as a yearling was Mind The Crack,who won easily at Lingfield and ten days later followed up at Haydock for Paul and Clare Rooney and trainer Mark Johnston. He looks a very promising horse for the remainder of the season, as does Getchagetchagetcha. He won the conditions race at Leicester also for the Rooneys and trained by Clive Cox. He appreciated the step up in trip and the softer ground and quickened up to win nicely.
KRB were busy this week at the Goffs Land Rover sale buying six horses, and they wish their clients the best of luck with them in the future.
The good run of results has continued for KRB in the last couple of weeks under both codes. Over the jumps past Cheltenham Festival winner Flaxen Flare won at Killarney for Joe and Pat Sloan and trainer Gordon Elliott. It was great to see him back in the winners enclosure. Templepark won the novice handicap chase at Kempton with a polished round of jumping under Max Kendrick for his mother Carolyn and trainer Ben Case.
At Uttoxeter Fortified Bay defied a long absence to make all and win the maiden hurdle for Paul and Clare Rooney and Jennie Candlish under a good ride from Sean Quinlan.
On the flat there was another black type winner for KRB with Good Vibes winning the Listed Marygate Stakes at York for Paul and Clare Rooney and trainer David Evans, who stated she was the best he’s ever trained. Good Vibes will now go to Royal Ascot for the Queen Mary.
Another impressive winner for the Rooneys was I Could Do Better who won easily by seven lengths yesterday at Carlisle for in form trainer Keith Dalgleish. I Could Do Better has now won both his races and looks a very exciting horse for the rest of the season. He was bought by KRB at last years Goresbridge Breeze Up Sale.
A KRB yearling purchase Wind In My Sails won for the fifth time for trainer Ed De Giles and owner John Manser at Newbury.
KRB have a busy week ahead with Goffs Uk sales and then onto the Breeze Up Sale at Tattersalls Ireland.
The 2018/19 National Hunt season was a great one for KRB with lots of winners, for lots of different clients, also another Cheltenham Festival winner in Croco Bay and a Grade 1 winner at Aintree with If The Cap Fits. The season in Ireland ended at Punchestown and The Storyteller ran another super race to be third in the Punchestown Gold Cup ( Grade 1) and Croco Bay was third in the Pigsback.com Handicap Chase ( Grade B).
The new season has also started well with Count Simon winning again for Mrs Pat Sloan this time at their local track, Down Royal. Gordon Elliott giving Paddy Vaughan his first hurdle winner, Count Simon stayed the three mile trip well.
Another horse to follow up his previous success was Neverbeen To Paris who won the handicap hurdle easily at Kempton under Bryony Frost for owner Paul Claydon and trainer David Arbuthnot. He may now go back to run on the flat.
Now Look At Me a dual bumper winner for Tom George won on his first start over hurdles in the Paul and Clare Rooney colours, ridden by Johnny Burke. He is a nice prospect for connections.
At Ayr there was a first and last race double for KRB with Onthefrontfoot winning the maiden hurdle for Donald McCain and Streets Of Doyen taking the bumper in good style for Stewart Crawford. Onthefrontfoot was bought by KRB as a foal and Streets of Doyen was bought as a three year old store.
Kings Temptation won at Fontwell for in form trainer Ben Case for Lady Jane Grosvenor and ridden by Kielan Woods. He was bought by KRB as a foal.
Also bought as a foal was Shantewe who won her second bumper last night at Hexham for Jamie Snowden and the Sheep as a Lamb syndicate. She looks a nice prospect to go hurdling next season.
KRB flat purchases have also been running well, and Alright Sunshine won on his flat debut at Musselburgh. He was previously the winner of three bumpers and looks an exciting horse for Keith Dalgleish and Paul and Clare Rooney. For the same owners Good Vibes won the two year old novice race at Salisbury for David Evans, and she is likely to go to York next week for the Marygate Stakes (Listed). I’ll Have Another ran a good race to be third in the Pretty Polly Stakes ( Listed Race ) at Newmarket and she may also go to York this week.
