A nice way to start off 2019 with a winner at Wolverhampton for Michael Pescod in the shape of HERMOCRATES. The son of Farhh was having just his fifth start and looks to be on the improve. He travelled well in running and was always doing enough up to the line. ‘I was very happy for him to finally get his head in front having been so unlucky on his last start. He should be able to continue to improve especially up in trip. He is a horse that I will carry on with on the all weather as he seems to appreciate this surface.
As the season draws closer the team prepares for what will be another busy year on the race track. With all the yearlings now ridden away and cantering, we look forward to seeing their progress in the coming months. Things will start to ramp up once we get into March time with a view to the turf kicking off at the beginning of April. ‘I am very excited about our team this year. We have some promising three year olds that showed plenty last year and have now been given a winter to develop. The two year olds look a really nice bunch and I hope we have covered a broad spectrum in terms of sharp early two year olds and later developing two year olds. We wish our staff and owners a very Happy New Year and look forward to the start of another season.’
