5yr old Bay Mare
Sire – Sleeping Indian Dam – Street Cry (IRE)
Indiana Dawn is a lovely, genuine fun horse to have in the club. She runs over a variety of trips from 7 furlongs to a 1mile 3furlongs and goes on different types of ground including the all-weather. She ran some nice races last season and on a few occasions was unfortunate not to win. She ran seven times last year and was in the first four on four occasions. We plan to run her on a regular basis this year, which will give us plenty of fun days out. With her current rating of 51 there are plenty of races for her and hopefully she is a winner waiting to happen. We have had her since she was 2years old and know her very well. We are excited to see her racing and get her head in front.
8yr old Bay Gelding
Sire – Sakhee’s Secret Dam - Royal Jade
Secondo is a highly rated and exciting flat prospect for the coming season. Having been rated as high as 93 previously, he is currently rated 83 and is potentially very well handicapped. He is a horse that we know well as we trained him in 2014/15 when in the ownership of owner/breeder John Deer of Oakgrove Stud. He joined us from trainer Roger Charlton and was 3rd on his first start for the yard before winning a £10,000 sprint on just his second start. On his third race for us he then finished a good 3rd to ‘Pretend’ and ‘Boom the Groom’, both have proven to be excellent sprinters. The following season he went to be trained in France, unfortunately he had a virus and ran a couple of disappointing races.
This past season he has been trained in lambourn and although he did not win, he still ran some good races, showing glimpses of his old form when finishing 2nd on his penultimate start.
Knowing the horse very well and seeing how much talent he had when we trained him, we have followed him closely and were delighted to be able to purchase him at the Tattersalls Newmarket Horses in Training sale.
He has his own running style as he likes to be held up and, with a late strong run, he doesn’t like to hit the front too soon. With his current rating he will be running in the better type of races and will give us some great days out at the top tracks around the country.
He has won over 6 furlongs, but we think it might suit him to try him over 7 furlongs, he is also versatile in terms of ground, as he likes the turf and all weather.
