19th October - Stratford
One runner today at Stratford.
4.05pm Makety runs in a mares handicap hurdle over 2m.
Makety us a lovely mare who had an interrupted winter last season when she was found to have a growth in her throat that virtually blocked her airways.
She was successfully operated upon and thankfully there has been no re growth of any tumour since.
Makety thoroughly deserved to win a race last season but she did bump into a couple of nice horses and due to trainer error she ran over an a trip further than suitable first time out.
Because she had won a point to point bumper I just presumed she would want further than two miles but I was wrong.
With hindsight I’m delighted that she remains a novice for this season, she’s much stronger and now more relaxed in herself, so I’m hopeful she can now fulfill her potential.
I really like Makety, she’s honest, willing and a joy to train.
She will be ridden by Liam Heard.
Makety is looked after, ridden at home and will be led up by Amy Deans
