6th July - Uttoxeter
One runner today at Uttoxeter.
1.25pm Bringthehousedown runs in a novice hurdle over 2m.
Bringthehousedown or Joey as he is known, arrived with us last winter thanks to Ron Hodges who recommended us because of our equine pool.
Joey has big flat feet so therefore he has had plenty of annoying issues with bruising etc.
He spends a lot of time swimming and Ben, my farrier, is his constant companion.
Joey is a big, strong horse who won on the flat In Ireland, although how he even went into the stalls is beyond me.
He is a good workhorse at home, he’s not flash but he’s very honest, you can’t help but like his attitude.
Joey can be a bit flippant with his obstacles but he’s had plenty of practice at home so he’s ready to roll and he can only improve for the experience.
He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.
Bringthehousedown is looked after and will be led up by Lenka Helmecka, he is ridden at home by Mila Lunackova.
