Welcome to the Goodwood Racehorse Owners Group Information Line of the 29th January.
This morning I spoke to trainer Ralph Beckett who has recently returned from his winter holiday. He told me that he could not be more pleased with Goodwood Rebel in that he is forward, strong, moving well and has a great attitude. He told me that he intends to 'press on' with our colt and treat him as one of his more precocious juveniles. He says that he has all the attributes of making an early two-year-old, but still the class to suggest that he will train on further. He commented that our colt 'catches the eye' in the string because of his presence. The plan will be to commence work with him in late March and see how he takes the step up in pace. I am due to visit the yard next month and will report further thereafter.
Goodwood Sonnet is easing back into work without being rushed. William Knight believes that our horse will come to hand plenty fast enough and he does not want to get after him too soon. Being a relatively lightly framed horse he is not over fat and the danger could be to 'bring him to the boil' too quickly. It will be a case of gently, gently and then gear him towards being ready for a suitable race in April.
Next week Members will receive their printed newsletters together with details on our visit to Deauville in August. We will also be mailing Members of Scheme (24) the final Management Accounts for the scheme to coincide with your payments.
The line will be updated again on Thursday, 7th February.
This update is all about our introduction to the new racing platform 'The Racing Manager'. The platform has been demonstrated at Goodwood and we are satisfied that it meets our needs and conforms with GDPR to protect your privacy.
Please see below our letter; the Racing Manager full Terms & Conditions and a précis of these terms and conditions exclusively for GROG Members. Please can we ask you to read the attachments. Thank you.
