R Beckett news

Saturday 25th June 2022 was a special day for everyone involved with Westover. He was extremely impressive in the Irish Derby, winning by 7 lengths.

Colin Keane was positive on him from the outset, took up the running 2 furlongs out, and went further and further clear. He has come out of it well, and is a possible for The King George VI and  Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Stakes at the end of July.

Sadly I have some bad news too. Scope was put down this morning after fracturing his right hind cannon bone and pastern, whilst at routine exercise. Having trained him, his entire family, and won a Group 1 with him last Autumn, he meant a great deal to us and we will miss him sorely.
