Roger and his team sent out KYLLACHY’S TALE at Southwell on the 21st Febuary and in much style she romped home to get the teams first win of 2017 by 7 lengths. She is a tall athletic filly who has taken a bit of time to come to herself but each with each time gaining a bit more valuable experience she was able to come out on top of the 13 strong 1 mile handicap for new connections Mr B & Mrs S Kitcherside. Kally will now have a short break as she still has a bit of growing and filling out to do and hopefully be resuming winning ways soon.

The 22nd of Febuary saw LUCKY LOUIE head to Lingfield to gain team teals second winner of 2017 for the new partnership Great Shefford Racing who is also run by Rogers wife Sue Teal. Louie has been a frustrating horse to win with as he hasn’t made his races easy for himself, he can be quite slow to stride out of the stalls and in doing so sees him playing catch up, but one thing with Louie is he has a great finishing speed. He showed this on Wednesday when looking like he’d be no better off than 5th at the furlong pole the penny suddenly dropped and sprinted home to make up 6 lengths and win by a head.
