There’s probably no finer trainer in the land, of a young, staying prospect, than Sir Mark Prescott. Whether you’ve a top-class stayer or a horse who needs handicapping before he or she can win, Sir Mark will have earmarked a plan that culminates in a success story. Take our fabulous 6 times, consecutively winning TIMOSHENKO, for instance, having taken, the £50,000 Class 2 Unibet Goodwood Handicap over 2m 4f. Purchased as a yearling for 40,000gns, Timoshenko afforded his merry throng of owners, a journey of a lifetime.

Sir Mark’s career is glittered with such success stories and with the fabulous genes that the sire and dam bring to the table i.e. AUSTRALIA (Epsom Derby winner) and the dam NAVAJO MOON (Listed winning and 106 rated), we can go into battle, believing we have a horse who could achieve at any level conceivable. Obviously, under Sir Mark’s tutelage, we will ascertain at which level we will start, determined of course, by what level Sir Mark believes he can achieve in the end. It’s a fantastic game of cat and mouse, that Sir Mark purveys with the handicapper, and we all know who usually comes out on top; or the results from the Heath House contingent, usually lead us in a suggested direction.

Visits to Heath House Stables are second to none, and a reason in themselves to be part of the ownership team. An hour in his company, and you know you are in no finer hands, than with the Baronet. His updates and communication are both legendary and we’d strongly recommend you get involved, no matter what your motives are, for wishing to own a racehorse. Sir Mark is very adroit at letting owners know when is the day to support your horse in the betting ring, and those days when it could just prove fruitless, so to do.

Racing Update: Still only a 4yo, this giant of a horse, who has done extremely well, to achieve so much, thus far, was on the crest of a wave mid-season 2021. Paul Nicholls even texted us, one day, following one of his 3 victories, that he’d love us to send him to him, to train. Yagan was destined for bigger and better things than he’d been achieving, until his wind got in the way, one night at Kempton. We’d even earmarked races like The Cesarewitch We immediately pulled up stumps posr Kempton, and we’ve have tidied up his wind. He’s back, as good as ever, at home. No sign of any wind issues at all, according to Sir Mark. Fingers crossed, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t continue on our upward curve. We may, even take Paul Nicholls up on his offer, at some point, too. Timeform rated: 72
