The French Ladies: Indigo & Lariyda

It’s not a lot of French horses we’ve had in our stable. But the two that stand out are Indigo and Lariyda. Both owned by Shaker Stable and both bought at auction in France.
Lariyda (Dr. Fong-Luriyva) was first in the stable and was a horse we all liked immediately as was the case with Indigo (Falco-Blanche), when she came along later.

Both Ladies unfortunately had issues that made a continuation of their racing carreer impossible. The good part of this is, that both mares have come to good homes as broodmares.

Lariyda has found a new home at Hjortebo Stud and is now in foal with Center Divider (USA). As you can see, she looks fabulous and the word has it, she’s the leading lady in the paddock. We’re very pleased as she is greatly missed, as is Indigo. We knew from the beginning where Lariyda was going, so no big deal to check up on her.

Indigo waiting for her race at Norwegian Derby Day 2015 where she was 3rd.

It was quite a diffrent story with Indigo. She was the favorite of one of the girls at the stable (Bechmann Racing) and she loved her dearly and still misses her a lot, as do I. She was determind to find out, what had happend to her. Only yesterday did she find her, after quite the detective work.

Indigo is in Ireland and is in foal by Camelot (Montjeu – Tarfah). Just for your information, one covering is 25,000 Euro! We couldn’t be more pleased for our lovely horse, that she has a good home, where she is valued.

We’re looking forward to seeing both mares foals, when that time comes. And if you’re lucky you’ll get to see them too – watch this space.

As an afterthought, I wonder why the name of the buyer (new owner) is not put into the sportssystem, when the horse is in there anyway and it states they have been exported to…..If you started why not finish, and I’d think the whole deal is in the system anyway since they need the passport and everything. Maybe someone can answer why not+ Not a lot of extra minutes to put the rest of the info.

R.I.P. Hanne (Wikke)

June 22nd, 2016 · Diverse, Enghavelyst, Foto, Klampenborg

Dette foto er taget, da Monte Carlo blev døbt, hvor vi havde en dejlig eftermiddag, og er af Hanne Bechmann og Hanne med Monte Carlo

Det er så utroligt trist, at det næsten ikke er til at fatte. Vi i stalden forstår det stadig ikke helt. Sådan er det, når det pludselig går så stærkt, og sygdom griber ind i vores ellers så dejlige hverdag og river et dejligt og positivt væsen fra os.

Hanne var hesteejer i “min” stald, Bechmann Racing på Enghavelyst. Hun havde sammen med andre en part i Monte Carlo, som lige har gjort et flot come-back og var meget indlevende, positiv og interesseret i, hvordan det hele gik.

Hun nåede lige at vide, at han havde gjort det så fint. Men var desværre for syg til at deltage og den 17. juni mistede vi og ikke mindst hendes familie så Hanne. Nu er det så tid at sige det endelige farvel, hvilket sker på lørdag. R.I.P.

Rafael Schistl out of danger

June 21st, 2016 · Diverse, Foto, Klampenborg

Rafael on Brownie (FR) last year on Derby day

The news this morning was gloomy to say the least. Rafael Schistl has been in a car crash in Brazil and was reportedly in danger as far as anyone knew this morning.

Thankfully the news are now much better in the sense that he is no longer in danger, but of course still has injuries. They’re said to be a broken hand, nine broken ribs and possibly a broken leg as well. But compared to the alternative, I’m sure he’ll take that and as a jockey he is not stranger to getting over injuries.

All the best to Rafael with the recovery and feeling better!

Mowerina 2016

Mowerina is always an exciting race, but as it turned out, the ratings in the programmes were almost there. It was exsactly the horses mentioned that ended up in the first 4 places although the order was a bit different.

But you can have a look at the photos and see how close it was. So close in fact that for a long time we weren’t sure who won. Beaufort Twelve was in the winners circle and I think we all thought she won, but it was actually Miss Vordingborg – by a nose. That explains why I haven’t got the “winnershots” of her really for which I appologize, but that was the situation. Miss Vordingborg and Elione Chaves won before Beaufort Twelve and Nicolaj Stott and Elektra Art (IRE) and Marcos Robaldo. And it was great for trainer Søren Jensen, as he trains both the first and the 2nd. horse.

Winners: Start Me Up Handicap, 2Yo Series, Maiden Race

June 17th, 2016 · 2 Year Old Race, 3-Year Old Maiden Race, Foto, Klampenborg

Start Me Up Handicap

My Pearl (Mingun – Top Pearl) is bred by Henrik Stork og Stald Front Team and trained and owned by Ôllegård Gren, Sverige, and ridden by Marcos Robaldo

Some of my racing friends know this, and if you don’t I’ll tell you. I love stayer races and always have. I absolutely love Loyal’s looks – as you can tell by now, just my kind of horse. He had just won in Sweden, so I was hoping for him to do well here and he was tipped as a winner in the programme. I wonder what happend – he ended last. Alicia In My Dream (SWE) obviously loves Klampenborg as I don’t ever remember her running badly here and she was 2nd. and Frost was 3rd.

2 YO Series

It is always very exciting to see the new stars appear on the track and one can be as good as the other as we have no way of knowing. We didn’t have anyone in that race, so the next best thing was for the neighbours to win. I’ve seen Nicolaj riding out on Seatown all winter, and no doubt he is a special horse. Also fun as I, as many others, clearly remember his mother Silvertown. Seatown easily won is first race and as such made his mother proud, as well as owner, trainer and jockey.

This race has always been one of my favorites. It’s my kind of horses – a race for the “big boys” although this particular one had one great female in the mix too (Inaya).

As a winner Hurricane Red (IRE) was tipped a lot and of course he was a good candidate, but so was others – As number three they had Falconet, but he was the one who came out the strongest. He is a favorite horse of mine and exsactly the type of horse I adore.
He is a huge horse, and really strong. With very accomplished jockey Oliver Wilson on for the first time they were the perfect pair. Jacob Johansen normally rides him, but had chosen Hurricane Red (IRE) and they finished 2nd and Elione Chaves and Beentheredonethat (FR)
