Major Eazy | Trainer: BRIAN MEEHAN

One runner today, and with a very decent chance.¬† Major Eazy, a nice 2yo last year, came back a couple of weeks ago and ran a very nice race at Ascot.¬† We didn’t expect much that day and we were pleasantly surprised - he should be fully fit now and ready to do the business.
He [...]

An incredible and historic day on Wall Street, with the Dow down close to 700 points moments after the open, rallying late to be 300 points up at one point before closing down 128.  The trading range for the day was over 1,000 points, which is unprecedented.
All things considered it was a pretty good performance, [...]

The markets are grim this morning - Alistair Darling perhaps predictably has failed to calm the storm.¬† I have a lot of sympathy for his approach - he’s been panned for taking too long to make up his mind but he needed time to assess the situation properly.¬†¬†Almost all of the journalistic comment I’ve read [...]

A week away and a lot to report.
Effingham came nowhere - the vet has found a small fracture which could be the problem.¬† He’ll be gelded now - should be ok next season.
We’ve had a decent offer for Lord Peter Flint which is subject to a vet’s exam - if he passes he’ll be sold.¬† [...]

Hoorah!! Another win for the heroes as Major Eazy triumphs at Salisbury in a pretty hot conditions race under¬†a nice¬†ride from Richard Hughes.¬† He was returned at 12-1, but there was clearly a bit of money for him (ahem…).¬† He’ll go into the sales at some point and this will have done him no harm [...]

I’m still reeling¬†over the Winker news - apart from anything else it was only a gentle piece of work today.¬† I really believe he was a virtual certainty in the Middle Park - Pete certainly thought so and the only threat looked to be Sir Gerry - he would have been a very short price.¬† [...]

Winker made the front page of the Racing Post today as Jeremy went public with our ambitious plans.¬†¬†Winker is extremely well and we think¬†he’s the best 2yo out there - we’re going to try to win both the Middle Park and the Dewhurst to prove our point, and we’re hoping we can persuade Jim Bolger [...]

Pete called us after Winker’s work this morning and said he is still running a bit flat and needs more time.¬† We could have run him over the weekend in group company but he’s too good a horse to take liberties with.¬† The Middle Park is only three weeks away and that is his next [...]

A bad day yesterday - Major Eazy ran his worst race for a while and I lost a lot of money punting.¬† To make matters worse I twice backed against horses of Pete’s and on both occasions Pete’s horse won.¬† Major Eazy takes a decent break now, which I think is well overdue.¬†¬†I was at [...]

After a lot of hype Ary finally came out on Saturday.¬† It looked as if he was dead and buried, but in a dramatic finale he stormed back to beat Tom.¬† Unfortunately King’s Quay came on the wide outside and beat them both - still an excellent¬†second, and if the cards had fallen a little [...]

Nothing runs for me during the week, but a fair bit of action at the weekend. 
Prince Ary is down to run on Saturday at Market Rasen in a race that the Pipe’s have won on several occasions.¬† He ought to have a decent chance.¬† Baldovina has two entries for the Saturday and one at Windsor on the Monday [...]

I’ve been waiting to write that headline for a long time.¬† Major Eazy’s win at the fifth attempt on Saturday night was long overdue, and at last we have confirmation of something we have believed for a long time - he is a proper racehorse.
Every jockey who has sat on ME has told us that [...]

I’ve got some catching up to do, but first a quick note on Major Eazy in the 7:15 at Lingfield tonight.
Brian described him this morning as “a certainty”.¬† I’ve been in racing for long enough to know that certainties as described are anything but, and I suspect ME is no exception to this.¬† Two hurdles [...]

Ascot day 1

A good day ahead. 
Winker ducks the first to go for the Norfolk.¬† I’ve heard very strong reports on Henry the Navigator who is apparently the best of O’Briens by some way.¬† He’s probably the best horse in the race, but he is favourite and O’Brien has seen a number of his leading lights beaten in [...]

…and I’m beginning to get excited.¬† Winker is extremely well and we’ve been arguing the toss with Pete all week as to which race he’ll go for.¬† It’s looking like we’re going for the Norfolk on Thursday.¬† Major Eazy will run in the Windsor Castle on Tuesday, and Frankie is taking the ride.¬† He’s run [...]

Major Eazy looked good for a while but when the going got tough he fell away. I think he got there far too soon and could have done with more cover. Frankie was very positive after the race - he said he had a lot of speed, should go for the Windsor Castle [...]

Major Eazy goes for the National Stakes at Sandown tonight. We still have a fair bit to learn about the horse. On balance it feels as if the conditions of the race are a small negative - the draw looks moderate, we think he’ll go on the ground but it’s an imponderable we [...]

Winker Watson, recently top of the Racing Post 2yo ratings with 92 has slipped to fourth - Major Eazy is joint seventh on 88. Achilles of Troy tops the list with 100. Call me a pedant but I don’t like the name - Achilles was Greek and he fought against the Trojans, not with them.

Major Eazy finished fourth after Jamie Spencer found trouble in running. We were pretty happy after the race - when the Major saw daylight he shot through, and if he had had a clear run earlier we think he would have won. He’ll probably go for the National stakes now.
Captain Hurricane runs on Friday - [...]
