JACK THE TRUTH WINNING REPORT
3rd September 2020
Stable favourite, Jack The Truth recorded his seventh career victory at Chelmsford last Thursday. He took full advantage of being drawn 1, travelling smoothly and never looking like being beaten under a strong ride from Callum Shepherd. Those that follow the yard know that on his day he’s a very effective sprinter and it was great to see him bounce back to form after a slow year. He will always hold a particularly special place here at Eve Lodge as he was the first yearling I purchased. As always owner Jack Stephenson was at Chelmsford to greet him into the winner’s enclosure. The handicapper has been a little harsh raising him 5lb however, he still qualifies for a 0-85 handicap; so will head back to Chelmsford on October 1st.
GREAT VIBES WINNING REPORT
15th August 2020
Great Vibes showed a fantastic attitude to win under Callum Shepherd on only her third start. This daughter of Showcasing, bred by the Gredley’s has improved for every run and looks a filly with a bright future. She travelled smoothly into the race and picked up well to win a competitive Newmarket Nursery. Having had three relatively quick races, we will give her a little time to get over her run before deciding on future plans.
She is particularly special to everyone at Eve Lodge, being the little sister of James Garfield. Whyzaat; her dam continues to be a leading light for Stetchworth and Middle Park stud.
SHOOT TO KILL WINNING REPORT
25th June 2020
Shoot to Kill certainly didn’t miss at Bath; running out an emphatic 4 ½ length winner under Callum Shepherd. Dropping back to the minimum trip with first time check pieces, he cruised through the race and had the rest of the field beaten at the halfway stage. It was a particularly pleasing victory as his owners Matt Bartram, David Kilburn & Ed Ware have been so patient, especially as this horse has been a little frustrating on more than one occasion. He’s clearly a horse that possess plenty of ability and I’m hoping getting his head in front can be a steppingstone to better things. He appreciated the fast ground and the unconventional track.
Winning Report Amazing News
20th June 2020
Amazing News put in an excellent run to win convincingly in a red-hot Newmarket handicap on Saturday. He’s a lovely big horse who has always shown plenty of ability, so it was nice to see him transfer that onto the track. Being lightly raced, he has plenty of scope for improvement and should have no problem stepping up to a mile in due course. He’s versatile when it comes to ground which leaves plenty of exciting options for him in the second half of the season. Congratulations to the Gredleys who bred him.
Winning Report Au Clair de Lune
14th June 2020
Au Clair de Lune put the experience of her first run to good use, travelling smoothly at Doncaster on Sunday to win by 4 lengths. She ran out an easy winner over a mile and half and looks sure to relish a step up in trip. Au Clair de Lune is out of the wonder mare Missunited, who will be fondly remembered for her tenacious attitude. This has certainly rubbed off on her daughter, who has been a thorough professional since joining us from her owner- breeders the Hutch family. I’ve no doubt this is the start of an exciting season for the Hutches.
SARVAN WINNING REPORT
7th June 2020
The long striding Sarvan went one better at Pontefract, winning convincingly from the well-regarded Chrystal Pegasus. Having always shown promise at two it was decided by his owners that we would save him for a three-year-old campaign and on. He has improved from race to race and clearly relished the trio. After three starts he’s bound to get a mark that will enable him to run at the big meetings with Glorious Goodwood next. Whatever he does this year he will improve upon in the and he is certainly an exciting horse for two huge supporters of the yard; Keith Breen and Chris Wright.
20 Febuary 2020
I’m very pleased with the start we have made to 2020. From 8 runners we have had two winners and multiple placed horses. Yard favourite Jack the Truth won impressively at Lingfield on his seasonal debut. He is a particularly special horse to all of us, as he was the first horse to walk into the yard when I started training. He has now taken his tally to 6 wins and I have no doubt he can continue to improve and give his owner Jack Stephenson an enormous amount of enjoyment through 2020.
Winning Report Jack The Truth
15 February 2020
Jack the Truth made a winning seasonal debut, something he’s done in the past. He showed himself to be in good form after his break at home and produced a near career best under the excellent Andrea Atzeni, physically he continues to mature. I see no reason why he can’t continue on an upward curve throughout 2020.
