We are going softly softly, but all is well at Herridge and Everleigh
RICHARD HANNON reports "all's well apart from the weather" as he dropped by for an early update on the horses we hope will be going places in 2014.
Richard gets into training
You may well know by now that Richard is running the London Marathon this year as part of Qatar racing team, alongside Sheikh Fahad and five other trainers. Richard has started training and is looking forward to the challenge but it is not going to be easy by any means. They are running in aid of Racing Welfare which is a fantastic charity that helps all people in racing with a variety of problems. It is an invaluable lifeline for some people.

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.

Sky Lantern’s Group 1 Coronation Stakes win
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.
