HCE Snippets: Fahey, Moore & Hannon


Richard Fahey

Miss Work Of Art's win at Lingfield on Wednesday was very pleasing and it's nice to get a two-year-old winner on the board. She did it well and we got her ready early as she qualified for a double bonus. It looked like it wasn't a great race and she came out on top.


The bonuses are vital and if I've got one I think is alright, I'll try and pick up a bonus with it. Mind you other trainers are doing the same thing and it makes them tough to win - albeit it may have been a soft race at Lingfield.


Miss Work Of Art qualified for a Newsells Park golden ticket so picked up £20,000 for that win. That's not to be sniffed at.


Our Boy Jack isn't a real Brocklesby horse but does make his debut in that race. I spoke to the Middleham Park lads and they were keen to run him but he's going to be a six furlongs horse and hopefully will be able to latch onto them and then come home. I just hope the finishing post doesn't come too soon for him because he will be doing his best work at the end.


He's the sort of horse who could win a bonus but we're coming here. He isn't typical of the wham-bam sprinters who tend to win this race but he will come home strongly and finish his race off.

We had a 2nd on Wednesday with Cockney Rebel’s first 2 yr old runner at Wolverhampton with Queen Of The Hop - she ran well and will win soon with luck. We run one in the Brocklesbury tomorrow at Doncaster, Crowning Star - he’s nice and looks like a three year old already but will come on for the run.


We have a few more 2 yr old runners next week, they are nice horses but like all of mine, they will come on a lot for the run.


We need the sunshine back again, it’s been really nice of late but it’s back pretty cold today again !!




Richard Hannon


Richard Hannon did not have any runners on Friday, but there is no such thing as a quiet morning at Herridge, and two horse boxes carrying 10 of our inmates pulled out of the yard shortly after 8am for a pre-arranged exercise at Kempton.


The raiding party heading up the M3 included 2000 Guineas entry Strong Suit, who will take on the mighty Frankel in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury a fortnight tomorrow, and Richmond Stakes winner Libranno, while the boss also took the opportunity to box up Kyllasie, who will be our first two-year-old runner of the season when she lines up for the opener on the Sunbury course tomorrow [Saturday 2nd].


The boss said:"It is always good to get their adrenalin flowing, and for Kylassie, in particular, it will be beneficial getting a feel of the track and especially being able to have a spin around the bend. She is a nice filly who goes well and knows her job, and let's hope she can emulate Takeaway, who won the race for us last year."


"Things are definitely moving up a gear now, and we'll run a two-year-old (either Wolfgang or Mrs Mopp) on Tuesday at Kempton, where Gennie, an unraced three-year-old Diktat filly, could also make her debut."


Meanwhile, the two-year-olds are starting to come to themselves, and Andrew Tinkler's Wolfgang, a son of first season stallion Amadeus Wolf, looks a sharp sort who won't be long in making his racecourse debut. He worked well at Everleigh, bringing a smile to Jones's face.


Tinkler also has a nice Kyllachy two-year-old filly, Pretty Primo, who is a half-sister to Richard Fahey's top-class three-year-old Wootton Bassett.


However, Pretty Primo will take a bit longer, and Jones said:"We paid 120,000gns for her before Wootton Bassett won the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp on Arc day, and I think she might be worth a bit more now. Obviously, making her a winner is the number one priority, so we won't be any rush."
