  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Dusky Hercules

    Published: Wed, 11/12/2019 15:54
    There were three reasons for celebration last week with the victories of Miss Tynte, First Lord de Cuet and Dusky Hercules. Whilst every victory is savoured, the success of Dusky Hercules was especially sweet as it marked the first winner for the newly formed David Pipe Racing Club, but more of that later...

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Paricolor

    Published: Thu, 28/11/2019 11:01
    The victory of Paricolor at Fakenham last week took our seasonal tally to 36 and was important, not least as it was amateur rider Fergus Gillard's first winner for the stable. Under a cool ride from the talented young jockey, our three year old quickened smartly around his rivals on the home turn to come home nine lengths clear. Although Fergus has

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Double at Cheltenham

    Published: Fri, 22/11/2019 09:09
    The recent weather has certainly spelt bad news for the racing industry with Stratford and Cheltenham having to call off fixtures last week. Even Fairyhouse in Ireland had to abandon due to waterlogging and take it from me, that takes some doing! Sadly, Cheltenham lost the first day of their prestigious November meeting on Friday and whilst two rac

  • Two triumphs in a row for Twotwothree in tribute race at Huntindon Races

    Published: Sat, 09/11/2019 09:03

The race is run each year in memory of the late Macer Gifford, brother of Grand National-winning trainer Josh Gifford. Born in Huntingdon, Macer was a

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Noonan's Lucky Escape

    Published: Tue, 05/11/2019 08:49
    October certainly proved to be somewhat damp with 145mm of rain falling at Pond House last month alone. Strangely, it produced an incredible variance in the going from racecourse to racecourse, with Newton Abbot having to abandon their final fixture of the season last Thursday due to waterlogging, whilst the ground at Taunton's first meeting on

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Ramses Roars Home

    Published: Wed, 30/10/2019 09:02
    Cheltenham was back with their first meeting of the new season at the weekend and it was great to get on the board with our first runner; Ramses de Teillee. I am always pleased of a winner wherever it may, although there is still something extra special about having a winner at Prestury Park. It remains the benchmark for everyone to aspire to, so

  • Cheltenham winner takes to hurdles at Huntingdon

    Published: Wed, 23/10/2019 14:37
    After making a successful debut in a National Hunt Flat race at Cheltenham on New Year's Day, trainer Tom Lacey sent the four-year-old to Cambridgeshire for the MansionBet Novices' Hurdle. Ridden by Nico de Boinville, the 9-4 chance had little trouble in landing the first prize in the two-mile contest. One possibility for the future is a return to

    Published: Wed, 23/10/2019 11:38
    The stable enjoyed a great weekend when recording a double at Ffos Las's Welsh Champion Hurdle meeting on Saturday, marking a triumphant return to the saddle for stable jockey Tom Scudamore who had been on the sidelines since breaking his wrist and T7 vertabrae in a fall on 10th September. These successes were no less significant as they

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Unsettled Weather

    Published: Wed, 09/10/2019 09:23
    The unsettled weather conditions mean that it has been very difficult trying to get an accurate gauge on the ground and therefore we were limited to just one racecourse representative on the flat at Bath last Monday. Indeed, last month was the wettest September we have had since we began recording the rainfall at Pond House in 2001. With 100mm of

  • Champion in winning form as Huntingdon races resume

    Published: Mon, 07/10/2019 14:01

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Plenty of Action

    Published: Thu, 03/10/2019 11:19
    Following a quiet start to the week, the action came thick and fast from Friday onwards! We attended the McCoy Awards at Cheltenham on Friday evening where our own Suzanne Lower was nominated for an award (more of that later!), whilst our first runners from the stable came at Worcester earlier that day. We were unlucky not to come away with a

    Britain's two leading jump jockeys arrive in Cambridgeshire on Wednesday as the National Hunt season resumes at Huntingdon Racecourse.

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Ryan Remains In Good Order

    Published: Wed, 25/09/2019 12:12
    Last week was a quiet one with only a handful of runners, our first not coming until Newton Abbot on Friday and it looks like being a similar story this week. Indeed, with only limited opportunities early and a couple or midweek fixtures at Perth, Britain's most northerly track, the next runners from the Pond House team may not be until Worcester o

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary, Fast Ground

    Published: Wed, 11/09/2019 11:33
    We were fairly quiet on the runners front last week with only a jumps card at the northerly venue of Hexham on Monday, no jumps fixtures at all on Tuesday and Friday and a dearth of runners at Sedgefield last Thursday (where there were just twenty runners in total throughout their final six races) due primarily to the prevailing fast ground.

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

    Published: Tue, 27/08/2019 13:32
    There was a notable event last week which was brilliant news for the whole team at Pond House. I am delighted to announce that W & S Recycling, who have been our stable sponsors for the past three years, have agreed to continue their most generous support of the yard for a further three years from 1st October.

    There was plenty to cheer about last week with jump racing returning from its enforced summer break with midweek meetings from Newton Abbot and Worcester last Wednesday whilst the action resumed in full force on Saturday afternoon. Even better, the stable was among the winners again with the success of Hot Ryan at Worcester on Wednesday evening
