  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Exciting Time of the year

    Published: Tue, 16/07/2019 13:07
    Whilst the racing calendar has been a little quieter, I took the opportunity to grab a little rest and recuperation with Leanne and the children and head to the Algarve for a week. The kids love it there so we try to go once a year and we had a fantastic time as usual, although I am not sure it was any warmer than it was back home!

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Noel's Boy

    Published: Tue, 09/07/2019 13:12
    There was a near miss for returning owners Pete and Kim Masters when their horse Noel's Boy made his debut for them and the Pond House team at Newton Abbot on Friday afternoon. Pete and Kim had horses in training with my father many years ago, so I was delighted when they approached me earlier this year with a view to getting back into the ranks of

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Inside Top Ten Trainers' Table

    Published: Tue, 02/07/2019 10:16
    The good form of the yard continued last week with the successes of Jacbequick and Barranco Valley taking our winners' tally for the new season to 13 and entrenching us well inside the top ten of the trainers' table at this early stage. Indeed our 13 winners have come from just 56 runners (at a strike rate of 24%) whilst a further 26 have finished

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Thrilling Royal Ascot Week 2019

    Published: Tue, 25/06/2019 16:21
    What a thrilling few days of racing we were treated to at Royal Ascot last week. I ventured up to the Berkshire track with my partner Leanne, my mother and father where we had a runner on the opening day, whilst Gold Cup day on Thursday was memorable as the Frankie Dettori show that had the bookmakers running for cover. With a couple of winners for

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Royal Ascot Week 2019

    Published: Tue, 18/06/2019 13:07
    The weather has certainly taken a turn for the worse. Much as a spot of rain is appreciated to keep the ground safe for the horses, we have had almost 100mm of rain during the course of last week - that is more than the total for April and May combined! Consequently many of the jumps fixtures were abandoned due to waterlogging, leaving us with just

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Hamlet Moment

    Published: Tue, 11/06/2019 16:24
    Last week was another good one for the stable with the horses remaining in fine form. We enjoyed a rare and dramatic success on the flat (which brought back some advertising memories from the 80's!), whilst all of our runners over the sticks performed with credit. It is looking a little quieter this week with just a handful of entries through the

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Max do Brazil

    Published: Tue, 04/06/2019 13:02
    Although the disjointed nature of the summer jumps programme means that there are fewer opportunities for the horses, the string continues to perform well and I was delighted to hit the mark with Max do Brazil who was scoring a timely first success for the stable at Fakenham on Sunday. With the purchase of a couple more horses from the Tattersalls

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Teaser wins

    Published: Wed, 29/05/2019 07:56
    Teaser gave the yard a great start to the week when winning at Ludlow last Monday an like I said last week the horses continue in great form it was just a little frustrating to have several more placings and not winners! However Story of Friends was also a nice winner at Warwick on Wednesday on his hurdling debut. He really enjoys the good ground,

    The horses continue to run with great credit and whilst we didn't get into the winners' enclosure last week, five of our nine runners over the sticks reached the frame. We have had a better start to this week however, with Teaser already successful for the team at Ludlow. With fewer meetings planned for the week ahead and a dry weather forecast for

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, 6 winners

    Published: Tue, 14/05/2019 13:08
    Last week was certainly one to remember for the Pond House team with winners coming left, right and centre (back-to-back doubles book-ended by victories at Exeter and Market Rasen). With 6 winners from just 14 runners and some places to boot, I couldn't be more pleased with our start to the new campaign. In truth, the horses have been running well

  • Horse returns to victory after 499 days off the track

    Published: Sat, 11/05/2019 08:26
    A horse who hasn't raced since Huntingdon Racecourse's Boxing Day meeting in 2017 defied the 499-day absence by landing a huge gamble at the Cambridgeshire track. The trainer-jockey partnership of brothers Dan and Harry Skelton combined to win the MansionBet Handicap Hurdle with Finula, who was backed in to 10-11 odds-on favouritism.

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, New Season 2019

    Published: Tue, 07/05/2019 13:06
    It is hard to believe that the 2019/2020 jumps season is already upon us, but as has been the case for many years now, one season follows hot on the heels of the other. With a couple of runners today and tomorrow and plenty of entries for the remainder of the week it looks like being a busy start to the campaign. Indeed, I am off to Kempton this

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Pleased With The Season

    Published: Tue, 30/04/2019 10:44
    The weekend saw the closing of the 2018/19 season with a fantastic meeting from Sandown. Looking back, on the whole I am pleased with how things panned out for the Pond House team last term. Despite fewer horses we produced significantly more winners than the previous campaign, whilst increasing prize money by almost £100,000 and improving our

    A bumper Easter Monday holiday crowd at Huntingdon Racecourse watched as trainer Dan Skelton sent out his 201st winner of the 2018-19 jump racing season which comes to a conclusion this weekend. Just one day earlier, the Midlands handler had become the first since Martin Pipe - and only the second ever - to achieve a seasonal double century.

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Star Of The Week

    Published: Tue, 23/04/2019 17:11
    In my children's school they give a star of the week award to a child in the class who has done well during the week. The star of the week at Pond House this week has to be Malangen who was as once again star on the race track and won for the second consecutive Saturday. He put up a really determined performance to bring up his hat-trick of wins.

    Published: Tue, 16/04/2019 13:03
    With less than two weeks of the current campaign remaining I was pleased to add a couple more winners to our seasonal tally. The successes of Legal History and Malangen last week took our total to forty and with a few meetings this week and plenty of fixtures next week, there are still plenty of opportunities to add to that score. Of course, the

    Published: Tue, 09/04/2019 13:07
    It is a shame that we couldn't add to our tally in this year's Grand National, but as always in the great event you need a little luck in running and that was not with us on this occasion. However, I am pleased to report that all of our team from Aintree including Grand National runners Ramses de Teillee and Vieux Lion Rouge have returned home safe
