Society Red continued his recent good form by winning at Newcastle on Saturday under a perfectly judged ride from jockey Tony Hamilton. Always chasing the leaders he lost his position over five furlongs out. He began to make headway over two furlongs out and was ridden to lead in the final 110 yards, running on well to record his second win in his last three starts. Congratulations to owner M J Macleod.


Society Red became the 3000th winner trained by Richard when scoring by a head at Lingfield on Friday under jockey Tony Hamilton. Settled just in behind but tracking the leaders, he was ridden and went second on the inner two furlongs out. Tony then switched him right over a furlong out. Red made a strong challenge and despite being bumped inside the final 110 yards, he kept on to lead towards finish. Congratulations to owner M J Macleod.




We’ve had a fantastic couple of days at York with three winners. Society Red got things started with an impressive three-length win. He tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and started to make headway over the final two-furlongs. Β He ran on strongly and pulled cleared for owner Martyn Macleod.

Starlight Romance then showed a fantastic attitude to battle to victory for Norman and Helen Steel. She was given a great ride by Paul who timed their run perfectly. She was always in touch and was making headway entering the final furlong. She ran down the leaders and got up in the dying strides to win by a neck.

Paddy Power defied top weight to win the final race on Saturday’s card. He tracked the pace and made his challenge on the stands rail inside the final furlong. He had to battle with Presidential but got up to win by a neck for owner Mick Scaife.



Iwasntexpectingthat gave us another two-year-old winner when getting his head in front at Beverley. The Foxwedge-colt was placed on his first two starts and it was great to see him go one better. He tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and started to make his move approaching the final furlong. He stayed on strongly to win by half-a-length. There were plenty of owners from the Good Bad Ugly and Deaf partnership to welcome him back.

We then doubled up with Society Red who won the feature on the card. He was given a great ride by Paul who tracked the leaders and made his challenge inside the final furlong. He managed to find a gap and challenged the leaders. He got up on the line to win by a neck for owner Martyn Macleod.


The first-time-out two-year-old winners keep on coming and Society Red was impressive at Thirsk. The Arcano colt was held up in mid division by jockey Tony Hamilton and he always looked to be travelling strongly. They made a move over the final two furlongs and he quickened well to pull clear and win by two-and-three-quater-lengths. A pleasing debut for owner Martin Macleod. Our other runner Doctor Cross finished fourth on his debut and will no doubt come on for the run.
