Our two-year-old wagon keeps rolling along

THREE more two-year-old winners yesterday, including a couple at Ascot, where the soft ground could not prevent Marenko and Wall of Fire enhancing their reputations.

How much rain will hit Ascot in the next 24 hours?

UP to an inch of half - that is the prediction of the amount of rain that could fall on Ascot over the next 24 hours, so it is hard to predict on what going our horses will be greeted with when they arrive on the Royal Heath tomorrow.

Hughesie’s farewell tour rolls on to Newbury

RICHARD HUGHES is relieved that his "farewell tour" won't go on as long as that of AP McCoy, but, doubtless, there will be a tinge of sadness when he has his final ride at Newbury tomorrow night before hanging up his boots at the end of Glorious Goodwood next week.

We look ahead to Newbury’s two-day meeting this weekend

THERE are plenty of professionals in the sport who reckon this week-end's racing is one of the dullest of the entire Flat season, but Richard Hannon wonld not subscribe to that view as the feature race on Saturday is Newbury's £250,000 Weatherbys Super Sprint, which we have won no fewer than eight times, including with Tiggy Wiggy 12 months ago.

Hannon planning big raid on Glorious Goodwood

GLORIOUS GOODWOOD might be a fortnight away, but such is the importance of Sussex's most famous race meeting in the Hannon household that between conversations as to what we might be running for the rest of this week all the chat at Herridge this morning revolved around Goodwood.

Welcome to Richard Hannon Racing

WHEN you have waited so long for something that you want so badly, you never know if you are actually going to enjoy it when it finally arrives, but I loved every second of my first season as a fully-fledged racehorse trainer – it was just champion!

Dad is a legend in racing and he set the bar pretty high, so to emulate him at the first time of asking and be able to call myself ‘champion trainer’ was beyond my wildest dreams. And having two other champions in the yard, in my brother-in-law, Richard Hughes, who took the jockeys title for the fourth consecutive season, and the amazing Tiggy Wiggy, Cartier’s Two-Year-Old filly of 2014, makes it even more special.

Pether’s Moon gets the better of Dolniya to win the Coronation Cup under Pat Dobbs

In his final season dad sent out a record 16 Group winners and amassed more than £4.5 in prize money for our owners. I never expected to achieve those sort of figures so soon, but here we are finishing our first season with 17 Group winners in Britain and a domestic haul of almost £4.7m. They say that it is better to be born lucky than rich, but it seems that I got both if you count my Christian name!

Night of Thunder got us off to a flying start when becoming the only one ever to beat Horse-of-the-Year Kingman in the 2000 Guineas, and a fortnight later Olympic Glory won the Lockinge at Newbury, while we enjoyed further Group 1 success with Toronado in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot and Tiggy Wiggy in the Cheveley Park.

Olympic Glory, Toronado and Sky Lantern – a disappointing summer for her but she won four Group 1’s and is a filly I will always remember – have all now retired, but Night of Thunder and Toormore will fly the flag for the four-year-olds and, with Ivawood and Estidhkaar heading a strong team of classic pretenders who knows what lies ahead for us next year.

Dad has often burned the midnight oil with stories of Mon Fils, Don’t Forget Me, Tirol and Lyric Fantasy and I realise that without them I would not be here now, but we have upgraded the facilities and, backed up by a fantastic team at Herridge and Everleigh, we are getting together a cast of superstars ourselves. Long may it continue.

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