My Tent pitched into battle one more time!

April 27th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

It’s been a relatively low-key week so far with just a handful of runners at Punchestown, but it’s set to get even busier from tomorrow with two in the G1 Hurdle plus a few others dotted around the UK, all before we head to Sandown on Saturday for the final day of the season where [...]

NICKY HENDERSON | PUNCHESTOWN FESTIVAL PREVIEW

April 25th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

It's been a nice, steady introduction into this year's Punchestown Festival with no runners today and just the one tomorrow, but we'll get busier towards the end of the week with BRAIN POWER, BEAT THAT, and MY TENT OT YOURS, plus a few others, in action. Horse Racing CHAMPIONSHIP NOT A DONE DEAL... The National [...]

OPEN DAY, TRAINERS’ CHAMPS, AND MUCH MORE…

April 13th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

It has been a busy week with preparations for tomorrow’s Lambourn Open Day, of which I hope you can all come along and join us because all the stars will be parading including our Cheltenham/Aintree runners plus some big names from the other yards so it’s definitely worth rocking up for. We’ve got loads going [...]

‘More of That’ winning feeling?

April 7th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

The Aintree Festival has been a particularly successful one for all of us at @sevenbarrows and BUVEUR D'AIR was very good on Thursday. He'll probably be finished for the season now and we'll work back from the Stan James Champion Hurdle next season to try to retain his crown. MIGHT BITE was brilliant and there [...]

A Golden Present Forecasted!

April 6th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

This is a big day for @sevenbarrows with 11 runners heading up to Aintree for day two of the meeting and it would be nice to think there is a winner or two among them. Thoughts are below: Horse Racing AINTREE FRIDAY 1:40- THOMAS CAMPBELL & RATHER BE (Alder Hey Handicap Hurdle) We are doing [...]

He who D’AIR’S…

April 5th, 2017|Big Race Previews, Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

After a short break since Cheltenham we’re heading up to Aintree for the Grand National meeting and while I am the first to admit we have pretty much zero chance of winning the National itself as dear old Cocktails At Dawn is our sole runner, we do still have some very good chances in the other [...]

Days of Heaven to shine at Kempton

March 17th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

The @sevenbarrows bandwagon continues to chug along and we're at Kempton for a good card that features a couple of races for those that didn't make the cut to get into Cheltenham and it's a real good initiative. Horse Racing KEMPTON 2:40 - DIVINE SPEAR & DAYS OF HEAVEN I like both of these, in [...]

Step Up! Gaitway the road to riches this weekend?

March 10th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

I’d like to say this is the calm before the storm but we have a few runners to get out of the way this weekend and there is still plenty going on behind the scenes to make sure everything, everyone and every horse is ready for Cheltenham last week. All of our Festival runners did [...]

GAME ALTIOR IN GOOD SPIRITS!

February 10th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson|

The horses have been running very well and it was great to see our decision justified at Sandown when BUVEUR D’AIR won on his hurdling return last Saturday. He is now 7/2 favourite for the Stan James Champion Hurdle which may be more out of default because of the defection of Faugheen and Annie Power [...]

Ascot run to be right up Percy’s Street?

January 20th, 2017|Latest News, Nicky Henderson, Races|

Last weekend was a pretty profitable one at Kempton and Huntington, and I was delighted to see VANITEUX get his head in front where the track and trip clearly suited him well. The ground was probably soft enough for him but everything panned out nicely and he jumped well, travelled well and really enjoyed himself. It would [...]
