Here we tell some of the stories from the yard in our own words! There have been many tales to tell over the past decade, about the staff, the owners and of course the horses, so we aim to capture some of the stories here!
Posted by MWE Racing | Friday 17 November 2017 George Washington was a brilliant world class racehorse.
A four times Group 1 winner, he was retired to stud in 2006. However, due to fertility problems in March 2007 George Washington was replaced at stud by Holy Roman Emperor, and returned to training. Tragically he lost his life in the Breeders Cup Classic at Monmouth Park in 2007, breaking a leg.
Whilst at stud he managed to produce just one foal, Date With Destiny, who in turn, in 2016, produced her first colt foal. The colt, by Lope De Vega, is here in training at Mick Easterby Racing and preparing for the 2018 flat season. Here we join him with work rider Jess Anderson.
Posted by MWE Racing | Saturday 10 December 2016 We catch up with Mick Easterby and owner Alan Black, a partnership that dates back to the 1960s and has sent out many well-known winners both on the flat and over jumps. The story spans several generations of the Black family, going back to a chance meeting
in the 1950s on a farm in Raskelf.
Posted by MWE Racing | Sunday 04 December 2016 At the start of 2000, Buzz the Agent's career - and also his life - hung in the balance. But this tough gelding was to return to the track in a manner that surprised everyone.
