JAMIE OSBORNE can look forward to the resumption of racing in the knowledge that he has a healthy number of two-year-olds to back up his team of older horses with nearly 40 in his care this time around.
Osborne’s career as a trainer first took flight with the emergence of Milk It Mick who took the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes in 2003 but there have been plenty of other headline raisers in the interim and whose say that the genial handler won’t find an ace this time around.
Jamie said: “We have a healthy influx of juveniles and for interest I have selected five for your readers that are all by first season sires.”
The Lambourn trainer kindly spoke to Tony Elves of At The Races about those he hopes can bless themselves on the Racecourse in the coming months.
Please note: Where a horse exists in the ATR database we have linked to its form and tracker profile below, we will update others when they become available.
Chestnut Filly; Mehmas – My Lass
"She is a Gigginstown filly and a home bred from the first crop of Mehmas. She is pretty sharp and is not an early foal but is very strong. She is taking her work and she will run in June and she is quick."
Bay Colt; Bobby’s Kitten – Alinstante
"He is from the first crop of Bobby’s Kitten and he failed to sell at Tattersalls Ireland and Ms Rausing kindly sent him to me to train. This is the first horse I have had for her and he will probably be ready for the resumption. He will just about cope with six furlongs but he will get further later on. He is a very straightforward colt who shows above average ability but is not a one-dimensional horse and should continue improving through the year."
Bay Colt; Vadamos – Balamiyda
"He is from the first crop of Vadamos who was son of Monsun so on paper he wouldn’t scream out as a stallion to get early seen two-year-olds but this horse is very mature. He shows a nice bit of pace and will start over six furlongs with the view to going seven. He goes well and is well up to winning a maiden for his owners the 10 for 10 partnership."
Bay Colt; Twilight Son – Jamboree Girl
"He is from the first crop of Twilight Son and is not the biggest horse in the world but a very strong and very forward colt. He is owned by the 10 for 10 partnership, has a great attitude, and should be ready for the first week of resumption. He could probably get away with starting over five but would almost certainly get six."
Bay Filly; Coulsty – Lucky Leigh
"Again she is from a first season sire in Coulsty and she is a sister to what I think is a pretty smart filly of ours Emten. She probably doesn’t quite have the pace of her sister but she will stay further. She is owned by Richard Tufft and is well up to winning a six furlong maiden in June but will probably get seven. She is a gorgeous big scopey filly and she is very strong but isn’t just a one-dimensional two-year-old."
