Here are my six MPR horses, to follow through the flat season. I have been very lucky enough to see a few 2yr olds, these past few months. These are my opinions. So if your new or old to this wonderful sport enjoy the 2022 flat season. Many Thanks Jamie Brownlow
1. KINGMAN ex PRICELESS JEWEL 2yr Old Colt (Not Named) Trained by Hugo Palmer
A very professional colt who likes his training. I went and saw him on the galloping up Warren Hill at Newmarket. He has a lovely stride and has speed as well. I would say he will start five furlong maiden and then see where it takes him in his career. Staying in the sprint races or further. A very likable colt. Trainer Hugo Palmer likes what he sees in this young colt. A quote from the trainer saying 🗣” There’s something about him. He goes about his business. He’s showing a fair amount of speed for such a big horse”.
2. HAVANA GREY ex LADY ESTELLA 2yr Old Colt (Not Named) Trained by Richard Hannon
Everyone loves a grey. He looked very nice and professional walking around the make shift parade ring. Also he was very calm in front of potential owners. On the gallops watching him, he just wanted to beat another horse beside him on the gallops, which was a good sign. I think he’s one to watch of the flat season. He’s entered early in the Wetherby Super Sprint as well. Trainer Richard Hannon likes the way he does it with ease on his exercise.
3. EXCEED AND EXCEL ex SIMMY’S TEMPLE 2yr Old Colt (Named: INSPIRED KNOWHOW) Trained by Marco Botti
The dam (Simmy’s Temple) was owned by Middelham Park Racing. She was second in the Brocklesby stakes at Doncaster. So this colt will have plenty of speed in his pedigree, even his sire is all speed as well. So I would say he will start 5 furlong and then will progress from there. I can see him running in top races in high handicap races as a 2yr old and better as a 3yr old. Trainer Marc Botti quoted to say 🗣” That he has a very good temperament and has taken everything in his stride”.
4. FOOTSTEPINTHESAND ex ZIGGY’S SECRET 2yr Old Filly (Named: LATOS ANGEL) Trained by Keith Dalgleish
Keith Dalgleish had success with Middleham Park Racing with the likes of Clem Fandango, Howzer Black and the up and coming 3yr old gelding Beltane. Looks like Keith Dalgleish has got another one in his hands, with this filly. She’s is strong and looks pretty quick. Trainer has started to up the exercises on his horses and reports that she is progressing, very well on the gallops. Keith Dalgleish is quoted saying 🗣” There’s something about this filly that I really like”.
5. Dandy Man ex Satain Ribbon 2yr Old Filly (Not Named) Trained by Karl Burke
Dandy Man filly looks very well and hoping, that Karl Burke will have another nice filly in his hand for this flat season. By all account that the filly has wintered, well and now is at Karl Burke yard. I don’t think she will be an earlier type filly. But I’m sure will see her mid-term start. But I’m not sure. She might start at six furlongs races as the sire of Dandy Man i think ground conditions is important with this filly.
LEXINGTON KNIGHT 4yr Old Gelding Trained by Richard Hannon.
Lexington Knight looked fantastic parading when I was at the stable visit at Richard Hannon. He’s definitely grown into his frame and strengthen up to a very nice horse. I’m sure he will improve his, 3yr old form last year. In which his form stands as 23322105352. He will be running between 1 mile 2 furlong to 1 mile 4 furlong races or further. At the moment there is no firm targets plans for him. So it will be Intresting how he does, in his 4yr old flat campaign. Richard Hannon likes him and he says 🗣” He’s going to be a very very nice horse this year”.
