Todays runners!

2 runners at Gowran Park today;

ROSIE REVENUE and Luke Dempsey are up first in the 2m4 Handicap Hurdle, she’s done well since joining us and with the addition of blinkers today we hope for another good run.

FARAWAY MOUNTAIN makes his debut in the bumper under Luke McGuinness having his first ride for us. He is our second runner for the Gordon Elliott Racing Club and we hope for a nice introduction.

Gordon’s thoughts!

On the members area now!

Wednesday 30th September

Good morning all,

What a beautiful day! Stay tuned for some pictures and videos of our new Club horse Faraway Mountain coming this afternoon! Busy day today, we are starting to organise the very first Gordon Elliott Racing Club Open Day, date TBC, where members can meet the Stable Stars and Club horses alike and enjoy a tour of the yard and gallops!

Tuesday 29th September

Great to have a nice winner yesterday with The Game Changer at Roscommon under great ride by Bryan. 3 runners today across the water in Ayr;

BROUGHTONS BANDIT stayed on well last time out back on the flat at Lingfield and just ran into the wrong horse, it’s the same trip here again today and he will love the ground. He’s been such a great servant to his owners the Twenty Syndicate and we hope he can do the business again for them today!

DOVE MOUNTAIN is next, he’s been quite frustrating but his latest efforts have been better. Under one of the best, Tom Queally, we hope today could be his day!

Finally NATIONAL SERVICE faces a slight step up in trip, he hasn’t shown us much however ran well at Navan a couple of runs ago. We hope he can step up today.

 

We are looking forward to the 16th October at Downpatrick where all our members will receive 2 complimentary passes into the meeting and we hope to meet all who can attend!

He is a recent addition to the yard and has been pleasing with his work so far, although unraced to date we hope for a nice introduction, he is entered at Gowran Park on 2nd October in a 2m Bumper.

Mr Steadfast

Our second horse, 3 year old Nordic Beat is currently enjoying a short break to strengthen him up for a winter campaign and will return to training in November. We aim to have at least 2 horses in the club at any one time and as many as 4 and horses will run in both England and Ireland, mostly National Hunt horses however we also have the option to run them on the flat. Assistant Trainer Oliver Murphy is also on the lookout for another horse to join the club in the coming weeks.

Zoe Winston – Racing Manager

My name is Zoe Winston and I live in Dublin with my husband, Conditional Jockey John Winston and our son Tighe.
I currently work for Gordon Elliott and hail from a racing background with my father, Ferdy Murphy being a highly regarded trainer.

I’m very much looking forward to getting started and keeping you all up to date with the latest news from the yard but first let me give you an introduction about myself and my career in the industry so far: I have worked in racing since leaving school aged 16. I started off working for my Dad, multiple Grade race winning trainer Ferdy Murphy and have worked for numerous trainers in the UK and abroad.

Racing is in my family and we are all involved in some way, my 2 eldest brothers both being former jockeys, my younger brother Rees is a jockey in France, my elder sister is married to top French Bloodstock Agent Guy Petit and my Aunty is recently retired and well respected trainer Joanna Morgan.
My husband, John Winston is a Conditional Jockey and 2nd Head Lad to Gordon Elliott. At the age of 18 I decided that although working for Dad had been great I wanted to spread my wings and I moved to Spain for 6 months to work for Irish Trainer Eddie Creighton. I learned so much in those 6 months, Eddie trained in both Mijas and Madrid and it was a great learning curve.
On returning to England I went back to working for Dad, spending my summers working for different trainers to gain experience. After a stint as Assistant Trainer for Dad I had the opportunity to train a Point to Pointer called Nouveau Maire who we went on to run in Hunter Chases, he won first time out for me after nearly 2 years off the track and a couple years later I pre trained a horse called Loxendor for my brother Paul, who went on to win his bumper in fine fashion.
Early in my career in the industry there were 2 people who I feel I gained the most knowledge from. The first being Diane ‘Rusty’ Russell, a well know character from Middleham, she taught me most of what I know, mainly by scare tactics but everything she told me stuck with me! The other is the late and great Ernie who had worked in racing all his life, he acted as Dad’s right hand man, from feeding to the medical side of things, if there was anything Ernie did not know it was not worth knowing!
I am very lucky to have grown up in the industry surrounded by some very knowledgeable people, including my parents who both have a wealth of knowledge between them.
John and I moved back to Ireland when my Dad relocated to train in France and last year a job opportunity came up for a part time secretary at Gordon’s yard. I couldn’t believe my luck and was delighted to again work for a successful stable! In January I was taken on full time and haven’t looked back since. I genuinely love working here and it’s a pleasure to be associated with a team of such incredible horses and people and after an unbelievable season we are all very much looking forward to what’s ahead!
