Art Power

Art power can be found at Tim Easterby’s Habton Grange, this eye-catching 6-year-old grey gelding has won three times in Group 3 company including the William Hill Ireland Renaissance Stakes which he has won twice, he has also been placed in Group 1 company 4 times during his career to date. This year he has won the Group 2 Weatherbys Ireland Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh, and most recently again at the Curragh the Group 2 Barberstown Castle Sapphire Stakes, his 5th win from 5 starts at the track; his trainer Tim Easterby states “he’s a funny horse, he’s been the same since he was a two-year-old, he just doesn’t naturally come to himself in the spring. Then from summer onwards, he’s a different horse” – another tough sprinter entered in some of the big sprint races still to come and one to watch out for as the season progresses.

Captain St Lucifer

Found in Suzzanne France’s Newstart Yard, Captain St Lucifer is a 6-year-old bay gelding, he has won one race during his career but this season alone he has been second 4 times and it will only be a matter of time before he gets his head in front.  He is a regular face on the all-weather circuit of Wolverhampton Racecourse, which he seems to love.  Why not speak to the team at the yard to find out why Captain St Lucifer seems to prefer Wolverhampton Racecourse to other tracks?

Cold Henry

A 4-year-old gelding trained by Sara Ender, this horse has really progressed well, having won twice at Catterick Races last season over two miles, he has not been out of the first 3 on all his starts this season.  A consistent staying horse with plenty of stamina and one to watch and will be available to visit at Swallows Barn in East Heslerton.

Dandy’s Angel

The 6-year-old bay mare, Dandy’s Angel, can be found at John Wainwright’s Granary House training yard. The middle-distance mare is in incredible form this year, winning two races and being placed four times since April. She was in the placings or winnings nine times last season and is obviously thriving at the yard, her latest win was at Carlisle in July. A reliable mare who is not to be missed at this year’s Open Day.

Edwina Sheeran

This chestnut filly lives in the yard of the new training partnership of Roger Fell & Sean Murray. The 3-year-old filly has relished the step up in trip to 1 mile 4 furlongs which has now seen her win 3 races.  Find out about the training partnership that has been formed at the yard.

Great State

This 3-year-old grey can be found in the Musley Bank Stables of trainer Richard Fahey, of his 8 runs he has won 4 and been placed in 3.  Moving up through the ranks he won the British EBF 40th Anniversary Westow Listed Stakes at York Racecourse in May and has since finished 3rd in two further Listed races where it could be said that he was unlucky in running on both occasions.  He has some big entries and is obviously held in high regard by his trainer.

Highfield Princess

This mare really needs no introduction as she has proven herself to be one of the top sprinters we have ever seen. Found at John Quinn’s Highfield Stables, last season she scored a hat-trick of wins at Group 1 level, Arc Prix Maurice de Gheest in France, the Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe Stakes at York, and the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Flying Five in Ireland.  This season she has again proven what a tough and consistent mare she is with two places at Group 1 level at Royal Ascot with just a 3-day break between her runs.  A horse that really is a pleasure to watch in her races with a blistering turn of foot and an obvious desire to win.


This versatile 6-year-old chestnut can be found in the yard of Adrian Keatley a 4-time winner on the flat and 3-time winner over hurdles he really is a talented individual.  This season has seen him go from strength to strength, winning twice at York Racecourse, and once at Ayr on the flat, he has also been a winner at Market Rasen over hurdles.  With winning form at the racetrack and a Sky Bet Ebor Handicap entry, he is a horse to see for sure, he has a range of talent – which code does he prefer?

On Borrowed Time 

This Filly is just 2 years of age and has already won 2 of her 3 starts to date, she only started her racing career towards the end of June over 7 furlongs and looks to have a bright future ahead of her; she can be found in the stables of Ollie Pears, the stable having a good run at the moment with the team training a Beverley Racecourse double on the 18th of July.

Roundhay Park

This 8-year-old son of Mayson has notched up 11 wins and 13 placed efforts to date and is trained in the yard of Nigel Tinkler, his latest win coming at York Racecourse in July winning the John Smith’s Sprint Handicap where he was partnered by talented apprentice jockey Alex Jary who was claiming a valuable 7lbs off his back.  Find out the key to training a horse like Roundhay Park and what the team at Woodland Stables do to keep his winning ways flourishing.


This dual Group 1 winning 3-year-old colt can be found at Julie Camacho’s Star Cottage yard. Shaquille has an impressive record on the racetrack having won 7 of his 8 runs.  His last 2 wins have been in Group 1 races, the first of these was the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot where he was ridden by Oisin Murphy and the latest was in the Pertempts Network July Cup Stakes at Newmarket ridden by Rossa Ryan.  He is a horse with a mind of his own and although apparently, a very relaxed and calm horse at home, he runs his races very much on his own terms when on the big stage. A genuinely incredible horse with immense talent; definitely one to look out for in Malton.


This middle-distance running 4-year-old can be found again in the Richard Fahey yard, he has 3 wins to his name and has not been out of the first three in all of his four races this season to date, he holds an entry in the York Sky Bet Ebor Handicap.
