Hasmonean Racing news.
The 2023 flat season is well and truly underway, and Hasmonean racing are also off and running. A satisfactory season opener for Menalippe on Monday 3rd at Newcastle saw her race prominently throughout, but despite beating the well fancied favourite, she perhaps didn’t quite see out the stiff mile to finish 3rd.
We will most likely see Menalippe again in a few weeks time, potentially back at 7f, a trip at which she won twice last season. Danny Muscott was positive following her Newcastle run, and we are all hopeful she will be competitive next time out. James has pencilled in a trip to the Norfolk coast where we may see her run over 7f at Yarmouth on May 2nd.
Mariamne may not be too far behind Menalippe, with a run in early May most likely at this stage. This precocious Dandy Man filly has shown significant improvement in recent weeks, and James has been impressed with her natural speed. She will likely run over 5f on debut, and there’s no reason to suggest she won’t show some early form. She’s nearly race fit, and her willingness to learn the game should stand her in good stead come race day.
Chartwell’s Lady is showing all the right signs at home and she moves like a good horse. She may need a little time to grow into her frame, and the plan is still to see her a little later in the season, possibly after a short break giving her time to grow with assistance of spring grass. James is happy with her progress, and we look forward to seeing her towards the end of summer.
