Lady Luck not on our side in QE11 at Ascot

RICHARD HANNON has never been in the game of making excuses, but as he digested the silver and bronze medal performances of Night of Thunder and Toormore in yesterday's QE11 Stakes at Ascot he could not help but reflect on what might have been.

Our big guns all struggle in the ground at HQ

THERE was always the chance with the deluge that Newmarket experienced through the week that Future Champions Day would throw up a few surprise results, and that is exactly what happened yesterday with all seven favourites beaten, including our two hotpots, Ivawood and Estidhkaar.

Testing ground but we are ready for the fight

THE QE11 Stakes comes so late in the season that so often this great race is ruined by the weather, but we were singing in the rain when Olympic Glory slogged through the mud to victory 12 months ago, and, though Ascot has taken another soaking this week, we are hoping that we will again have something to celebrate on Champions Day on Saturday.

We’ll sink or swim in testing ground at Newmarket

ANOTHER 12mm of rain fell at Newmarket overnight, but at least there is a fresh strip of ground which has not been used since May so Future Champions Day tomorrow, which features three G1 races for two-year-olds, should be a cracker, though confirmed mudlarks will have a huge advantage.

Two big days coming up and everything is hunky dory

THE big guns for Newmarket on Friday have been declared and all is well for Champions Day at Ascot - that was the lunchtime message from Richard Hannon, speaking from the Tattersalls Sales ring, where he hopes to buy some new ammunition for next year.

Welcome to Richard Hannon Racing

PROUD and privileged is how I can best describe the feeling when Dad released racing’s worst kept secret that he wanted me to take over the trainer’s licence from January 1, so it is my pleasure this time around to welcome you all to richardhannonracing.co.uk

Apart from the fact that we have swapped seats on the flight-deck, nothing has really changed either here at Herridge or up at Everleigh, but dad has been champion trainer for three of the last four years and sent out more than 4,000 winners in his 43-year career, so, knowing what a big pair of shoes I have to fill, it is very comforting that he will still be very much an integral part of the team in 2014.

But, while the future is what counts and we look to the likes of Toronado, Olympic Glory, Sky Lantern and Toormore to keep us on the big stage this summer, we will never forget the past, and I realise that without the success of such as Mon Fils, Don’t Forget Me, Tirol, Lyric Fantasy and Canford Cliffs, I would not be starting off with such fantastic facilities and a first-class team supporting me.

So stay with us on the site and enjoy the ride – we hope it will be informative and entertaining.
