Indoor SchoolDEAN IVORY is always looking to improve training facilities at Harper Lodge Farm and the latest project, an indoor school, is nearing completion.

Despite the wintery conditions, work on the school has progressed nicely and the horses have continued to exercise in the trotting/canter ring which runs around the perimeter of the school.  I was at the yard yesterday and despite heavy plant working inside the school, the horses barely turned a hair.

The plan is for the school to be completed before the start of the turf season.  It will be of huge benefit to horses and staff during the wet weather but also it will provide another arena to freshen horses up from their usual routine.

Dean has had a good start to 2017 with five winners and 16 places from 35 runs at a strike rate of 60% wins/places to runs.

If you would like to get involved in a stable that is successful and going places and maybe you’ve thought of joining a syndicate, why not call Solario Racing on 01442 877 597 or email for a free colour brochure?
