We have an exciting competition for someone to design us a new logo. As you can see R F Racing Ltd at the top is quite long and we are looking for something a bit different. It doesn't have to be green and gold. The yard staff shirts are navy and gold and the horse boxes are purple and silver so that gives you a bit more scope. If you enter your logo you are allowing us to select it for use on our website and any other aspect related to the racing yard, you are giving the copyright to R F Racing Ltd. The logo must be your own work. Please send entries to enquiries@richardfahey.com by November 30th. The lucky winner will get their design tweeted by Richard and you will get the opportunity to meet Richard and visit the yard. You will also get the chance to have a VIP day at the races, either York or Royal Ascot. The prize generously donated by Mal Greenwood and Andrew Tinkler.

Spirit Of Zeb made all under jockey Tony Hamilton to win at Southwell. It's a track he likes and once he was in front he wasn't going to let it go. He stretched clear of the rest of the field to win by three and a half lengths for owners Imej Racing.

Things have really started to quieten down now, with just a few horses running on the all-weather. We had two winners on Saturday, the first of which was Holiday Henry at Lingfield. This was his fourth start and he's progressed with every run. Jockey Tony Hamilton did have to work hard for the win, pushing him all the way to get him racing but when he hit the front he stayed on to win by a head. We doubled up with Bayan Kasirga at Wolverhampton. She was held up towards the rear of the field by jockey Natalie Hambling, and made headway inside the final two furlongs after being switched right. She stayed on well to win by four and a half lengths. Owner Stephen Humphreys has had to be patient with her so it was great to see her win well.

El Viento has finished second on four of his last five starts so it was great to see him win for the second time this season. He was held up just behind the leaders by jockey Tony Hamilton and they started to make an impression down the straight. The 8 to 1 shot took up the lead and stayed on strongly to win by three quarters of a length. He always tries his best and gave owners John Nicholls and David Kilburn another good win.

Bahamian Sunshine made it two wins on the bounce at Southwell, beating his rivals by an impressive six lengths. The two-year-old won at Wolverhampton last month and was sent off favourite for yesterday's claimer. He made all under jockey Tom Eaves and eased passed his rivals on the turn for home. He stretched clear to win for owners The Fairweather Foursome.

Richard has said he thinks Withernsea is the unluckiest horse he has ever trained. So many things have gone wrong for him this season so it was fantastic to see him get the win he deserved at Doncaster. He was held up towards the rear of the field by jockey Tony Hamilton. Our other runner Farlow had the lead inside the final furlong under jockey Sammy Jo Bell. Farlow had pulled two lengths clear but Withernsea started to make an impression and he closed the gap and stayed on impressively to win by a length. Fallow ran a great race to finish third.

Mention should also be given to Latenightrequest and Imshivalla who finished second and third in the listed race. They are two very genuine and tough fillies and now the black type is sorted.

We don't send out many runners over the jumps so it was great to see Innocent Touch win on his hurdling debut at Musselburgh. Jockey Brian Hughes held him up just behind the leader Winter Lion and the pair pulled clear of the rest of the field with two hurdles left to jump. Innocent Touch didn't have the cleanest of jumps two from home but he gathered his composure and the pair jumped the last together. They battled to the line with Innocent Touch getting the better of his rival by half a length. They were 16 lengths clear of the rest of the field.

We're back from Keenland and Birchwood ran a fantastic race to finish third in the juvenile turf. The ground was softer than we would have liked and we didn't know whether he would handle the step up in trip. He answered any questions we may have had, he was given a great ride by James Doyle who held him up in mid division. He challenged when they turned for home and did hit the front only to be headed by Ryan Moore and Hit The Bomb.

We were thrilled with how he ran and he's been looked after brilliantly by Aly. It was fantastic to have our first runner at the meeting and Godolphin and our own Caroline made sure the trip went as smoothy as possible. Most importantly Birchwood seemed to enjoy himself and has come out of the race fine.
