Sometimes, when Lady Luck is riding with you, things go right when you've no expectation that they should. The law of averages tells us that it'll be our turn soon, but the flip side of that coin is another law - Murphy's - that says that anything that can go wrong, will.  Over the past 18 months, the Keighleys, based in a yard at Condicote, where both Belinda and Martin cut their teeth with...

Three of the six win...

Last week I wrote that racing all over the world is not a privilege solely for those training and riding horses on the Flat. There are, it must be said, rather less destinations to choose from as a Jumps trainer or rider, given that the sport peters out the further east you go, and has no place whatsoever in the Middle East, a growing powerhouse of lucrative prizes in the first 3 months of the yea...

I recall the strapline from an advertising campaign of yesteryear, even if not the product it descibed. It went thus: "there's a company from over here doing rather well over there", over there referring to the USA. Whilst the company is probably long gone, that descriptor amply describes one son of Gloucestershire who is making his mark in east coast US steeplechasing.  Tom Garner hails fro...

There are high public expectations of former champion jockey turned trainer Jonjo O'Neill. The never-say-die attitude as a rider that inspired a generation of riders and won the affection of punters of every age and creed has been successfully applied to the altogether different process of training racehorses, at Jackdaws Castle, the purpose - built training centre at Ford, 10 miles north-east of ...

Watching the success of Fergal O'Brien, who notched his fiftieth winner of the term at Uttoxeter on Thursday, I was reminded of another pioneer of the sport in Martin Pipe, who would regularly close out a half century of winners before most of his contemporaries had barely got their charges to steady cantering!
