Ownaracehorse had their annual Stable Visit to Derek Shaw‘s today, and luckily the weather was perfect.
There was a big turnout of shareholders to see the horses they had with Derek Shaw, which are: Dancing Ellie Mae, Miss Starry Eyed and Prickles.
All three horses were paraded, and then it was on to the gallops to see them do some light work. After this Derek and Lyndsey Shaw gave us free rein to have a wander around the yard and see the other horses they have in training.
Another top day out. Well organised by Richard, and I’d like to thank him and the Shaw’s for their time.
To make our day even better we went to see Classy Lass in the field before we left. She looked to be enjoying her new life, whilst awaiting a new home. In the field she has a new friend T-Rex and they appeared to be very friendly. She still looks as good as ever.

What a night… We travelled the usual 100 miles or so North to go racing, and it was well worth it.
Super Fazza came from second last to finish first!
He was slow away from the stalls and travelled in the rear, but jockey Shane B. Kelly, who also rode Fazza for the first time last Wednesday at Pontefract, never panicked and just sat and bided his time.
Creeping down the inside rail, before switching Fazza inside slightly and then he pressed the “turbo button.”
Niall said to me a few month’s ago at Edwin’s Stable Visit, that Fazza isn’t the biggest of horses, but his legs move quick. How right he was, as once in the lead the race was put to bed quite easily.
This was his second race in 10 days, and he went two places better than last Wednesday.
Fazza has now won this race at Thirsk for the past 2 years.
It’s an amazing experience to see ‘your’ horse win, and in such circumstances where you thought he was too far back and the gaps wouldn’t be there.
One thing I do know for sure though, is this is one horse who never gives up. I’ve now been to watch him three times and on all three occasions he has given his all.
I’m throughly delighted for everyone involved: Trainer Edwin Tuer, the Ontoawinner Syndicate who do such a good job and the stable lass pictured above.
OntoaWINNER.net sure did live up to their name for me. Many thanks lads!
