Preparing Christmas Food
A busy time in every global kitchen.

"The cooks first appeared in front of the camera for their pilot Hairy Bikers series, filmed in Portugal. No strangers to travel before they started working together, the lads embraced the opportunity to seek out new dishes from around the globe when their show took off. Since then, they’ve travelled to Namibia, India, Vietnam, Argentina and Mexico as well as sampling the cuisines of places nearer to home, such as Ireland and the Isle of Man.

Your adventure into the world of Global Horseracing
a warm welcome to Nicholas Godfrey  2015.

Sacred Sunday December 20 2015, get your Racing Post’s Big Read every Sunday included in your Racing Post, you won’t be disappointed.

JMC: Yesterday’s Big Read focus was about the present life and times of Gary Moore British Jumps trainer, who went close to losing his life when kicked by one of his horses in training a few days back,  interviewed by Peter Thomas, for the Racing Post.

Quote Moore: “I was a bit worried when I had to go into intensive care but a couple of days of morphine and I didn’t feel too bad. ”

PLUS: ON LOCATION FOR THE RACING POST NICHOLAS GODFREY BRINGS NEWS: About Epsom Flat Turf Trainer Simon Dow who has recently moved his horses in training to Thirty Acre Barn, in a bid to revitalise his training career. (Staff Ingham’s training home base from 1947 to 1977.” Geoff Lewis taking over after.

Dow, “There’s so much history here you can almost feel it. If this place is haunted, it’ll be him for sure, “ grin’s Dow.

JMC: Photograph of what we used to call “The Cinder Track”. Now looks like a decent “All Weather Surface Track.”  

Persian Bold was the last yearling that Ingham bought in Ireland, at a time when his health was causing him problems, letting him down, causing hospital care sometimes. When he came home from hospital just before he died, he would walk out to watch Persian Bold at exercise driven in the long reins, learning to become an athlete, learning to change the pace, to change the rein. Swing to the left, swing to the right, walk, trot, canter, whow, steady up. Learn to understand the words used by his handler, tutor Eugene Clarke, working with the yearlings, 2 year olds, the apprentices, guiding them every step of the way. No matter what the weather.

When each yearling was ready for a rider they soon join the older horses in training at exercise second and third lot every morning, colts at the front, fillies at the back of string. You try to bring a yearling, 2 year old divine mercy every day, to bring these beautiful little creatures trust and peace.  The same should apply with little children. As our Queen Elizabeth 11 and her true American horseman friend Monty Roberts, who wrote the book: The  Man who Listens to Horses, showing us so clearly the way.
 The Man Who Listens to...1996

Colin Tizzard,  jumps trainer told us live on CH4 racing on Saturday about the new barn's he has built for his horses, and what a difference it has made.
(bloodhorse literate achiever  in his own right)

27 Jan 1999 - ... there were approximately 520 professional racehorse trainers in Britain. ... the accounts book as seriously as the form book is Simon Dow.

TIMELINE: 1947 – 2017 = 70 years.

JMC: Over these last 70 years ( two years to go yet, time span used here) it is estimated that 96 per cent of all owners are bloodhorse illiterate, further it is estimated that government, government regulators and  government disciplinary officials are mostly all bloodhorse illiterate as well, all taking top wages out of  “British Horseracing’s Financial Pot” . Whilst the true bloodhorse literate handler riders are being locked into dishonest third world government minimum wage scams.

Geoff Lewis retired as a jockey in 1979, after which he applied for a trainer's licence and began to train at Thirty Acre Barn, near Epsom racecourse.[3] He trained almost 500 winners before his retirement to Spain in 1999. In 2014 he moved back to Cranleigh, to be near his daughter in Ewhurst.


2015 -


SIMON DOW has moved his 24-string a mile and a half from Clear Height Stable, adjacent to the racecourse, down Langley Vale to the more peaceful environs of historic Thirty Acre Barn, leading off Shepherds Walk, just down the bridle path from Ermyn Lodge”, where Old Man Sutcliffe trained his racehorses. We used to call him Old Man Sutcliffe  so as we didn’t get muddled up with the racehorses trained by Young Man Sutcliffe.


“Make no mistake : this was a major decision for Dow, who yearns to revitalise his training career after a quarter of a century at Ron Smyth’s old yard, literally across the road from the Epsom grandstand. Fortunately, the transition to the former base of Epsom legend Staff Ingham and Geoff Lewis, and more recently Roger Teal, seems to have been quite painless. “We had two horseboxes going back and forth and we rode a few here, so it was quite a complex task for a little team like ours’ reports the trainer, an immensely popular figure in Epsom. All the horses were moved in about four hours, which was a tribute to all the people who helped us.”

“Neither the office nor Doe himself have moved in yet, but at least the horses – and the trainers greyhound Billy – seem content enough. “They’re relaxed and comfy, “ “reports Dow a youthful 54. “It does take the edgy ones a while to get used to new surroundings – the ones who get stressed think they’re at the races and waiting to run but  now they’re getting used to the noises and sounds. It’s got a nice sort of calm aura.. “
“We are chatting in front of a row of spacious black and white boxes lit by ornamental lamps: even on a drab, misty grey morning, it is a scene richly redolent of Epsom’s post-war heyday. One hopes, for the sake of Dow’s staff, that the ghost of that legendry martinet Staff Ingham - about as far from the personable Dow as may be imagined - is an infrequent visitor.

“If this place is haunted, It’ll be him for sure,” grins Dow  “There is so much history here that you can almost feel it  as you walk around the place. You can almost feel the souls of the individuals and the horses who used to inhabit the boxes. It’s unusual. When I was 16 and working for Mick Haynes at Tattenham Corner, Geoff Lewis had just retired from riding and started here. It’s amazing that I’m here myself now.

“We’ve got 24 boxes available, which is all I want,” adds the trainer, who is renting the yard from owners John and Rebecca Morton. These ones are lovely big boxes and they’re south- facing so they get the sun first thing in the morning. Geoff used to have his fillies here. Clear Heights was a purpose- built quadrangle , a very functional yard. Horses were looking at each other but here they’re looking out, Mine think they’ve gone from living in the Scrubs to Putney!”

“Dow’s relocation brought an immediate dividend: on his first day saddling runners from his new base, one of his horses was beaten a short head; two days later, long term servant Forceful Appeal got him off the mark at Lingfield. However, and with no disrespect intended to the horses who have kept the ship afloat for the last decade or so, Dow is passionate about upgrading his operation. A pivotal factor behind the move is his passionate desire to get back to where he was in the 1990’s, when stable star Young Ern won a couple of Grade 3s. “It’s too long since Young Ern “ he admits. “But wasn’t I lucky to have him? I had him too soon – he got beat a short head in a Group 1 giving 5lb to Cherokee Rose, who went on to win the Haydock Sprint Cup, and I thought it was a bad day!”
“In some respects, Dow has learned the hard way as his numbers dwindled to single  figures not so long ago. “It’s been a rollercoaster but if you do something for 30 years
There are going to be great times and terrible time, “ he reflects.

 “We had some very lean years. If you’re only training ordinary horses you do lose a bit of enthusiasm. There’s not much incentive to get up … when you’re training nine or ten winners a year you’re running just to stand still. You’ve got to come to work feeling you can touch the bottom financially. A couple of stupid things happen and before you know it, your financially crippled. “
“Instead of contemplating his navel , Dow decides to take positive action. “I’m taking a risk but I want to raise the bar,” says a trainer brimful of zest for the new challenge. “I’ve always thought I’d probably die in harness but I don’t want to train Class 5 and 6 horses exclusively to try to win £1,500 at the weekend. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the job – I love it – but there’s almost no point in doing that at this point of my life.

“I have to achieve at a higher standard like those glory years in the 1990’s when we had a number of decent horses. “
“And this is a man with a plan. Dow’s long-term ambition is to run a boutique-style operation of higher grade horses.  “We’ve got people who are invested with us and the idea is to produce a better quality animal, ” he says. “I know it sounds corny, like the X Factor, but you need clients who want to come on the same journey with you, It’s like playing snakes and ladders – there are times when the ladder collapses and your back down the bottom again but you’ve got to build the blocks and keep climbing up.

“The way to draw people in is to win races and we’ve got three or four nice yearlings to look forward to and a bit of depth among the older horses, “ he adds. “The question for us is whether we can continue what we’ve done on the all-weather for the last few years; you go into the wilderness for three months and come the autumn you start to recover.”
“Hence the move across town. It’s a choice as opposed to being forced,”  he says. “I could have stayed on at Clear Heights and who knows what would have been the  “ says Dowoutcome? But I’m not sure there’s sense in staying in the same place if you want another go. “In some ways it’s a massive wrench to leave a place with so many happy memories but Ron and his ]wife] Mary passed away and I was getting to the stage I was nearly married to the place. I thought if I don’t move now, I never will. ”
“As such, it is not so much “escape to the country “  as “Location, Location, Location”: only the distant drone of the M25 suggests we are in the shadow of the capital as we look down the property’s showpiece circular downhill gallop. “Staff Ingham had this put in to replicate the decline to Tattenham Corner,” says Dow; that’s probably why Ingham’s juvenile runners at Epsom were the stuff of bookies’ nightmares.

“This will be more appropriate place to train young horses further away from the frenetic urbanisation of Epsom, “ he adds, before outlining his plans to transform the yard, including a designated owners’ room and a café-style area for breakfast and morning coffee. “I can really see a patio just here for owners and visitors,” he says. “In the spring and summer I can see this is going to be a lovely place for people to come and see their horses. We’re part of the leisure industry, though we’re offering an unusual form of leisure recreation through racehorse ownership. I want to give my clients what they want out of horseracing via a personalised service.


“This is a structured plan, “ he adds. “We’ve come out of the woodwork and it’s a question of seeing how far we can get. It’s a very exciting time of my life and I have to drive this, because it’s my passion. If you’d said to me when I was 18,  in 2015 you’ll be training at Thirty Acre Barn and would’ve trainer 600-odd winners and met all these amazing people, then I’d have said what a life that would’ve been. But now I feel unfulfilled and there’s a lot more I want to achieve.


“But it doesn’t matter if you’re the best football manager in the world, if your team keeps hitting the crossbar you’ll get sacked. You’ve got to have the right ammo but there used to be regular Epsom runners in good races and there’s no reason why it can’t happen again. Watch this space. “


“I’ve got more energy than I’ve had in years,” he adds – and this remember, is coming from a school boy athletics champion who was once the youngest trainer in Britain. “I feel very optimistic,” he says. “If you make sweeping statements, you can end up looking silly, but we’ll give it our best shot and the people around me are committed.


“Mind you, it wouldn’t be Dow if he didn’t offer a self-deprecating sub-clause. “We’re trying to do something different, something better, “ he says. But the minute you start thinking everything’s good, that’s when the wheels drop off. I’ll probably never train another winner!”


“Or maybe he will. On Wednesday, the day after my visit, Dow saddles Hombre Rojo to win the opener at Lingfield, beating two-year-olds-trained by John Gosden and Godolphin, among others. Wonder if that’s the kind of thing he’s talking about?”
