Another Perth chance for Kisumu

Tim Tasker-Brown’s five year old Kisumu produced arguably his best hurdles run when we took him up to Perth last time, and a repeat performance would see the son of High Chaparral in the mix once again when he contests the two mile handicap hurdle at the Scottish track tomorrow evening (8.00). Kisumu (above) is still a maiden…

Kings upsets the odds for a Dream win

The Golden Cuckoo’s three year old Casamento gelding Kings Will Dream (10/1) caused a bit of an upset as he came with a strong run under Paul Mulrennan to overhaul odds on favourite Sharja Bridge in the one mile maiden at Pontefract this afternoon. Having produced two solid efforts to make the frame in a pair…

Cornerstone Lad looking for breakthrough win

Our three year old Delegator gelding Cornerstone Lad has been knocking loudly at the door since he went handicapping, and a little bit more improvement could well see him get his head in front for the first time when he contests the 1m4f handicap at Pontefract tomorrow (2.30). Cornerstone Lad was having only his fifth…

Sad loss of multiple winner Verko

We’re really sad to report that earlier this week we lost popular eight year old French bred chaser Verko, who had to be put to sleep after suffering a serious injury while out in his field. A son of Lavirco, the former Irish pointer cost £10,000 when we bought him at the Goffs sales in March 2014…

Our yard stalwart who’s still going strong – why we love Alderbrook Lad

When we bought seven year old chaser Alderbrook Lad at the Doncaster sales back in November 2013, things weren’t going too well here at Oakwood. Our hard work over the summer months had yielded just nine winners on the Flat, and Amir Pasha’s two hurdles successes at Sedgefield as the nights started to draw in were…

Our Becks does her bit for the girls

Despite the best efforts of the likes of champion Flat apprentice Josie Gordon and leading amateurs such as Serena Brotherton and Joanna Mason, it remains frustratingly difficult for female jockeys to make their mark, with the lack of girl riders involved at the recent Royal Ascot meeting again raising eyebrows at the Racing Post. So it’s always nice…
