Latest news of the Colts & Fillies Horse; Safari Team

Safari Team in action at Lingfield last year

Safari Team, the Colts and Fillies horse in training for 2011, came back to Robins Farm Racing Stables in early January. He looked very well, happy and relaxed after his break and Anton and the team have commenced his training programme for the 2011 Flat Season.

The first stage of training was to begin walking and trotting as well as start his new diet, that helped him shed a few pounds after his holiday! The second stage of his preparation is to start the fitness training to build up muscle and condition. He is now cantering and starting to look sleeker. If all goes well, Safari Team will begin to ‘work’ (controlled gallop) next month and the plan is to have him ready to run in May.

Great news! We now have our own Colts & Fillies Club silks, they were designed by Frances Flannagan, age 9, and we are currently having them made ready for Safari Team’s first run of the season. The design is really rather clever; leopard spots and zebra stripes for ‘Safari’ Team and Scotty's dark blue and silver starred cap.

Children can join the Colts and Fillies Club to participate in additional activities on a raceday and follow the progress of Safari Team with stable visits and watching him race. The Club is free to join and membership currently stands at 11,500. For details visit
