Mick & David Easterby: Racing Syndicates and Racehorse Ownership

First rehomes of 2024 leave New House Farm

First rehomes of 2024 leave New House Farm

19.44 | Thu 4 Jan 24 | Rehoming

Bargain Basement and Eagle Creek left the yard for the final time this week and headed to their forever homes as part of our successful rehoming programme.

Three-year-old Bargain Basement ran on the flat as a juvenile but we've called time on his career as he doesn't have the speed to be a winner. He heads north to his new home near Sedgefield with Ashlyn. He'll live like a lord and already had a whole new section of the tack room set aside before he left New House Farm.

A beautifully natured young horse, we know that 'B.B.' will thrive off the track.

Ashlyn messaged us the day after taking B.B. home to tell us how well he'd settled in.

"In the school he really started to relax, saddle fitter is coming on Wednesday but he's just super," says Ashlyn. "He's not fussed by food but loves people. I'm honestly so lucky to get a horse like him. I'm so excited to transform him into an event horse. He's got a lot of schooling and a lot of maturing but the potential he has. I'm over the moon."

Also heading for pastures new, Eagle Creek was delivered yesterday to his new home in Warwickshire. The ten-year-old is a three times winner but he doesn't have the pace of old and we took the decision to retire him in December. He ran for the Mick & David Easterby Racing Club and gave us plenty of good days out racing. A horse with a fabulous temperament and excellent manners he'll make the perfect riding horse.

We wish both 'B.B.' and 'Eagle' long and happy retirements and we know they'll be loved and cared for in their new careers.
