Top advice in recent days include………………..

26-Feb-19   Catterick Bridge   Justforjames  - Just For James would definitely prefer the ground on the softer side, while the track may be a bit too quick for him. However, with the small field and the likelihood of a sensible gallop we are hopeful for a good run to defy his outsider status in the market.   Won the race at 13/2, Micky Hammond

25-Feb-19   Uttoxeter   Diamond Fort - After winning a chase in each of the two previous seasons Diamond Fort lost his way. He showed a fair bit more after a break last time at Exeter. Today's longer trip and left-handed track should both be more suitable, so he could well get involved today.   Was placed 2nd at 10/1, Fergal O’Brien

25-Feb-19   Ayr   Dandy Dan  - This good-ground horse was ready to run when racing was stopped for the equine flu situation. Luckily this chase reopened which gave us another chance to look at it. Not many races offer a 4lb penalty for a second win as this does, so it is ideal for him. He loves good ground and I hope he gets it here. This is a tight contest but I'm hopeful he'll be good enough to win it.   Won the race at 10/11, Kim Bailey

24-Feb-19   Fontwell Park   Tarada  - Tarada is a horse we really like and his form is working out very well. Ideally I'd prefer softer ground and a more galloping track for him, so on these terms I'm not sure he can beat Hobby's horse, but we'll give it a really good go.   Won the race at 9/4, Oliver Sherwood

23-Feb-19   Newcastle   Morney Wing - Morney Wing has been improving over fences and will have the same good claiming rider on as when he won the London National at Sandown. I'm very hopeful he'll get the extra distance today and am rather surprised at the generosity of his price!   Was placed 3rd at 33/1, Charlie Mann

23-Feb-19   Newcastle   Imperial Aura - We have always liked Imperial Aura and this horse has done nothing wrong so far in winning a bumper and then easily on debut in a hurdle at Carlisle. He still has a long way to go but we like him and are hopeful he can nearly win this. 1st at 13/8, Kim Bailey


Site Improvements, Plus Plenty Of Experience To Help Run The Site That’s right, there will also be FTS site improvements with an overall facelift to the look and feel, plus we’ve managed to secure the services of Tony Stafford to help the day-to-day running of the service.

Secure Members Area and Email Communication On It’s Way - Currently the quotes are delivered in a secure members area (by 11am each day), while – just like Trainers-Quotes – they will also soon be sent out each day via email. 

A Bit About Tony……………….For those of you that don’t know Tony, he’s been involved in various areas of horse racing all his adult life. For many years he was Racing Editor, Correspondent and chief tipster on the Daily Telegraph, winning the Sporting Life NAP’s competition no fewer than three times. Plus, during that time he was a close consultant with major trainers and stables including Michael Dickinson, Jim Bolger and David Loder, plus for more than a decade the Thoroughbred Corporation.

Since April 2007 Tony has been Racing Manager to Raymond Tooth – a top owner that has punched above his weight both on the flat and over the sticks, with the likes of Indian Ink (Coronation Stakes, Royal Ascot Group 1), Punjabi (Champion Hurdle, one of four Grade 1's) and French Fifteen (Criterium International, Saint-Cloud, Group 1) being his biggest winners.

Tony is also the author of several books, including ghost-writing Frankie Dettori's - A Year in the Life - which included a post-completion chapter on Dettori's Ascot seven-out-of-seven extravaganza which indelibly cemented his international reputation.

So, we think it’s fair to say Tony has a wealth of horse racing experience to bring to the table and plenty of top contacts too.

FromTheStables Also Involved In Racing Syndicates We know a lot of you in the past have asked about getting involved in owning share in horses with our trainers – well, this is something that can also now happen. The chaps at FTS have been doing this with plenty of success for many years and have agreed to stay on and run this side of the business – great news!

With their experience they are well-placed to assist us to take this forward. We truly believe we can be one of the best and most affordable horse racing syndicates around!

Again, there will be more to follow on this in the coming weeks and months, but this is a fun and very affordable way to get a taster of horse racing ownership, while with 33 stables (between both TQ and FTS), who will be happy to house our horses, then to say we’ll spoilt for choice is an understatement.

There’s plenty to get excited about!
