HIGH NOON 09 April 2012 Westerner-Seymourswift- Gelding Owner-Nick Pietrzyk and Partner

It certainly makes the job a lot easier when you've got a willing partner, and it appears that our new acquisition High Noon enjoys his racing. He arrived at the yard in the Autumn of last year from Emma Lavelle's stable, where after a promising first run in a bumper, and a respectable debut over hurdles, he failed to show very much in six subsequent races, having been given a harsh looking mark of 115.

His first run for us was over an inadequate two miles in heavy ground at Hexham last November, where Alain Cawley pulled him up before jumping the eighth. He then ran in soft ground at Wetherby, fairing better but weakening and looking in need of the run. This was followed by a trip to Musselburgh on good ground over two and a half miles with Emma Smith-Chaston in the plate, conditions were perfect and he cruised home by six lengths. A return trip to Musslelburgh two weeks later over three miles, factored in with also being 10lb higher saw him finish a very creditable second, perhaps the trip may have stretched his stamina? His latest run at two miles and five furlongs at Market Rasen saw him once again finishing a gallant second, this time to the well handicapped Mistercobar.

If High Noon keeps on showing this level of consistency then there are plenty of memorable days to be had with him.
