EASTERN RACER (IRE)
  • Year: 2012
  • Colour: Bay
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Sire: Bushranger (IRE)
  • Dam: Queen Cobra (IRE)
Eastern Racer will be running in the 2018 flat season for Brian Ellison Racing Club.
He has been trained by Brian since he was a 2 year old, and has won 3 races and placed 12 times for his previous owner, who very kindly gave us the opportunity to put him in the Club, for members to enjoy.
He will be running over 6f –7f and likes good, good to firm going.
An exciting new addition to the Club.

ARCHIVE (FR)

  • Year: 2010
  • Colour :Bay
  • Sex :Gelding
  • Sire :Sulamani (IRE)
  • Dam :Royale Dorothy (FR)

Archive was previously trained in Ireland where he won a bumper (national hunt flat race), a maiden hurdle, and a handicap chase. He is a horse that shows a good turn of foot. He won his first start for us at Ayr in November, but as he disappointed on heavy, tacky ground in the 3 runs since, we decided try him on the flat. After 3 starts on the all weather, he was given a handicap mark of 65. He has been given a short holiday to freshen up and will be running again in the summer, with the option of flat and jumps both now available

SERENITY NOW

  • Year: 2008
  • Colour:Bay
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Sire: Key of Luck (USA)
  • Dam: Imdina (IRE

Serenity Now is a lovely old horse. His career has been fairly consistent having been placed in 3 of his 4 bumpers, won over hurdles, on the flat turf and also on the all weather for his previous owner. He was very kindly given to the Club in December 2018 and has delighted us all since winning 3 starts at Southwell, which is a track he loves.

ITS PANDORAMA

  • Year: 2010
  • Colour: Bay
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Sire: Misternando
  • Dam: Gretchen’s Castle (IRE)

Its Pandorama is a consistent little horse, and whilst he is yet to win for the Club (came very close),  he has previously won over hurdles. He has schooled well over fences and he we look forward to seeing him over the larger obsitcles on the track later this year.

SNOOKERED

  • Year: 2014
  • Colour: Bay
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Sire: Born to Sea
  • Dam:Secret Quest 
Snookered was purchased at the Tattersalls Sales in October 2017.  His first run for us was at Bangor-on-Dee in a 2 mile hurdle race. This was his first start over hurdles and he ran well, finishing 3rd. We will be looking to keep him on the flat throught the summer, with a return to hurdles a possibility for later in the year.

SECRET PASSENGER (IRE)

  • Year: 2013
  • Colour: Chestnut
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Sire: Stowaway
  • Dam: Mtpockets (IRE)

Secret Passenger is a lovely big horse. He has started his career racing for the Club in 2 mile novice hurdle races but it took a few races for him to get the hang of what he is supposed to do. However, he is learning all of the time and delighted us when finishing 3rd behind two decent horses at Sedgefield in November. Following his last start we discovered that he needed surgery to correct a wind problem. This was done in January and he was given plenty of time to recover before coming back in training.He is still a young horse and we should continue to see him progress with age and experience, especially if the wind operation helps him.  His future will eventually be over fences.

2 YEAR OLD’S

Looking ahead to the 2018 flat season, we will have a nice selection of 2 year olds for members to follow. At this stage we are ‘living the dream’ and hoping we have the next superstar in our string! Having being brought in at a year old, they first have to go through the process of learning the job, which can take several months.

They go through a ‘breaking in’ stage which involves, first learning how to walk, trot and canter with the saddle and bridle on and then having someone on their backs for the first time. Once they are used to this, it’s time to set foot on the gallops. After weeks of slow cantering, the speed gradually increases and eventually they are put through their paces. It is at this point Brian will get an idea whether he thinks the horse is ready to run or if it will need more time. Everything is done at a pace that suits the horse, as this stage is critical to how the horses develop.

Brian will never rush a horse into a race if he doesn’t think it is mature enough. Sometimes, they appear to be ‘ready’ at home but when they hit the track for the first time, it can be all too much for them, so they may be given a rest and come back to try again a few months later.

Members in our Club will get to follow the horses progress from a very early stage, with information and regular updates on the MEMBERS ONLY page.
