Last roll of the dice for Toronado in California

LADY LUCK has not been with us on our last few visits to the Breeders Cup, but Richard Hannon hopes that he will hit the jackpot at the first time of asking in his own right with Toronado in the Mile at Santa Anita tomorrow night – assuming, that is, that Osaila hasn't already set the champagne corks popping for the Al Shaqab Racing team tonight!

Osaila ready to roll as curtain goes up on Breeders Cup

THINGS are slowing down at home - another batch of our horses were sold at Tattersalls yesterday, with Brown Sugar making 190,000gns and Sea Shanty 58,000gns - though we still have a few unraced two-year-olds ready to be launched and Tawdeea, a strong, good-looking Intikhab colt who was always going to be one for the back-end, makes his debut at Newmarket tomorrow.

It’s 85 degrees and the Californian raiders are loving it

TO describe the final two weeks of the domestic menu as "dull" is a huge understatement, so Richard Hannon was delighted to arrive in California to be greeted with temperatures of 85 degrees as he prepared for his first Breeders Cup as THE trainer, with both Toronado and Osaila stretching their legs on the dirt track at Santa Anita yesterday.

Estidhkaar had hairline fracture in Dewhurst

WHEN a horse runs as poorly as Estidhkaar did in the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket last month, there is usually a reason, and, thankfully, subsequent tests on Sheikh Hamdan's colt, rated by Richard Hannon as "one of the best two-year-olds in the yard", have revealed a problem which is happily "not career-threatening".

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.

Richard Hughes and Toronado

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.
