Rodney After Dave is a fantastic prospect currently in full training, ready for the start of the new flat season in April 2018. His Sire, Intense Focus, amassed over £200,000 in prize money during his successful career, and his foals include Grade 1 winners in France. His Dam, Ceol Cois Tine, was unraced, but has produced winners.

“We are delighted to have Rodney After Dave in the club. He has a solid pedigree and has shown great effort and ability since we bought him. We hope to have a lot of fun with him!” Chris Bennett, Equinox Racing

“Rodney After Dave has not looked out of place in our yard. He is a speedy type, that will work initially over 5/6f, and could be a competitive sprinter for years to come. We are very happy to be working with him, and hope he will fulfill the promise he has shown us already.” Tom Fife, Trainer

“We are delighted to have acquired Nervous Nerys which is a great deal for the club.  She is very well bred, will hit the ground running and will give us endless great days out.  She is a little pocket rocket, and a very gutsy horse.” Rob Edwards, Equinox Racing

He has take to his new surroundings very well indeed, and has shown a great character already.  The thing that surprised me most is how fast he is, and will be aiming him at a 1m/1m+.  We are delighted to have him in the yard, and hope to help get his career back on track.” Tom Fife, Trainer

Moove To The Groove is from Catcher In The Rye, and out of Valley Of Love.  His Sire was a high-class, lightly raced miler, and sire of German Oaks winner Rosenreihe.  He is rated well, and lightly raced for his aged.

“We didnt have to think twice when this horse became available.  He had a very successful summer in 2016 winning three in a row over hurdles.  An injury sustained in a fall since then has kept him off the track for some time, but he is back in full training.  He is fairly lightly raced for his age, and if he gets back to the level he was at prior to his injury, we have acquired a fabulous horse with great potential.” Chris Bennett, Equinox Racing

Move To The Groove gave me some good wins back in 2016, we have given him longer rest than necessarily required after his injury, purely because we know he likes the firmer ground.  He is in great health, showing us a lot in training, and will no doubt be winning again when back on the track this Spring and Summer.” Donald McCain Jnr, Trainer
