Trainer profile: Keith and Janet Cumings

We are a family run point-to-point livery yard based near South Molton, on the edge of Exmoor, offering a 5 star accommodation for all our horses.  We treat them all as individuals and pride ourselves on attention to detail. We start with roadwork on our quiet country lanes with steep hills, ideal for muscle-building. We train mainly on grass gallops, and frequent trips to the moor, which the horses love. Our all-weather sand and rubber school is ideal for loose schooling and flatwork, also invaluable when winter weather sets in, ensuring that horses do not have to miss a day’s work. We also have use of a superb all-weather gallop and an all-weather schooling ring.

We hunt mainly with the Devon & Somerset Staghounds, and believe in qualifying horses properly, as it is a great way to educate young horses on all sorts of terrain and it introduces them to crowds of horses and people.

Over the years we have enjoyed success with some lovely horses:

Persian Scimitar           (won 7 Hunter Chases in the 80’s)

Flame ‘O’ Frensi          (won 24 points and 2 Hunter Chases)

Khattaf                          (won 26 Ladies Opens)

More recently, Starember Lad, Friar Waddon, Mine’s A Gin, Swiftwood and Touch of Flame were prolific winners, resulting in an excess of 250 winners for the yard so far.

Daughter Jo was National Novice Champion and rode over 100 winners herself. Now married with children, she still rides out regularly.

Bonanza Boy started his career with us, hunting and schooling.

Similarly Gold Cup winner Master Oats came for some hunting and a change of scenery.

Recent winners from the yard, The Disengager, Alpha Native, The Wealerdealer and Typical Oscar have now progressed to the NH scene.

We use top jockeys such as Will Biddick, Josh Guerriero, Sam Allwood, Matt Hampton and Michael Heard, and travel all over the South West.

Horses for this season include, Certain Flight, Go On Henry, Whenharrymetsally and Gone That Way plus a new batch of youngsters sourced from sales in Ireland that are learning their job.

There are full or part shares of Ownership available for the coming season.  We plan to have runners on the opening day of the 2013/14 season at Black Forest Lodge.

Our daughter Nicky heads a competent happy team who work hard to produce fit, well turned out horses.  A huge picnic and drinks basket, makes for a happy day for all.

Tiverton Staghounds, Bratton Down, Sunday 9th June 2013 Report

A COOL Summer breeze with plenty of sunshine resulted in another bumper crowd turn out for Sunday’s meeting at Bratton Down where the ground was described officially as firm resulting in top of the ground horses clocking up some fast times.

My Runaway under jockey Robbie Henderson ran away with the opener winning the Hunt Members, sponsored by Winston Pincombe Land Rovers, coming home four lengths ahead of Double Fun for local trainer Kayley Jones. Owners Andrew and Hannah Broggie gave credit to trainer Kayley who has found a suitable way to travel the horse.

“It is the first time all season we have had suitable ground, he has been unlucky, had undergone a colic operation early in his career and then suffered injuries sustained in the trailer whilst at the Chipley Park meeting”

The David Brace – trained Son Of Swallow under jockey Bradley Gibbs took the Intermediate by a neck, leading over the last, then battling the finish out up the steep hill having got the better in a three way dual between Stalbridgeswansong and the late challenge from For Sahkey Money who flew up the hill snatching second, Robbie Lllewellyn who was standing in for David Brace claimed

“Son Of Swallow had some foot issues after winning his Restricted at Didmarton, but a big team effort including that of 11 year old Conor Brace riding him out after school they decided to run the horse again on his preferred ground”.

Nine went to post in the Stags sponsored Open Maiden, Thank Evans under Ben Robarts set the pace until fading after the final ditch leaving Dads Birthday and Dernier Dance tussling two out, Mr Bachster soon joined the battle and resulted in the judges having to sort out the finish with Leanda Tickle timing the race to perfection winning on Mr Bachster by a head from Dernier Dance leaving Dads Birthday another head behind in third. Trainer David Stephens had bought the horse from Ascot sales.

“He was a no hoper but I liked the horse, we soon got over his quirky ways and had to mount him in the box before schooling out, I may target him for a two mile hunter chase next season”.

The Men’s Open was run in memory of the late Sid Tarr, and of the six runners Tom Chanin resumed front running tactics on Ashclyst setting a strong pace ahead of Pastek and a patiently ridden Round Tom. Champion jockey Will Biddick pushed the overdrive button on Round Tom two out and eased clear over the last justifying odds on favourite winning stylishly by 15 lengths in a time of five minutes fifty four. Pastek came home second one and a half lengths ahead of Ashclyst. Round Tom was originally in training with Paul Nicholls and now with Richard Barber who hopes the the horse can be aimed at the Foxhunters at Cheltenham.

“He has now qualified with two open wins, but the horse will only run on firm ground”.

It was a battle of the Welsh trainers in the Ladies Open, seven went to post with Shernally under Jane Williams sent off odds on favourite but struggled after the first circuit with the David Brace OBE-trained Respectueux under Charlotte Prichard setting a strong pace, Shake The Bottle’s took up the running after the last ditch and went on to win for 19 year old jockey Rachel Leyshon leaving Respectueux three lengths down in second and Fiulin in third. It was an emotional win for Shake The Bottles trainer Andrew Leyshon having just lost his half brother Peter Evans to cancer.

“Peter would have still wanted us to run the horse, he was regularly checking up on the horses progress”.

Rachel is working for Tim Vaughan and is leading the West Wales and Southern Wales Ladies title.

Eastleigh Care Homes sponsored the Restricted in which FourStar River was sent off even money favourite of the ten runners under Ian Chanin, punters were given a good run for their money but had to settle for second when Bathwick Scanno under talented young jockey Jamie Bargary got up to snatch a win by a neck on the 2 -1 second favourite. It was Jamies third win, two of them being on this horse and he is hoping for another chance at Umberleigh next weekend. Bathwick Scanno is owned by the Rising Sun Partnership, and trainer Teresa Clark puts his success down to the veterinary team lead by Phil Browne having sorted out his respiratory issues. Teresa is based near Bridgwater and this is her second season training, her first ever win came from Bathwick Scanno last year.

South Devon Hunts Club, Ideford Arch Preview

Point-to-Point resumes in the Devon and Cornwall Area on Sunday Dec 30th at Ideford Arch near Chudleigh for the South Devon Hunts Club meeting. More than 80 entries have been received and it promises to be an exciting day out to follow in the festive spirit for all the family to enjoy.

Racing starts at 12 noon with the South Devon Hunts Club Members race. Never So Blue won this race last year and scored again at Brampton Bryan for Ledbury trainer Claudia Wilesmith, Lucette Annie is game and made all to win at both Buckfastleigh and Wadebridge for jockey Darren Edwards, Amber Love is another entry that goes well for Darren Edwards.

Next up is the South Devon Hunt Club Members race for Novice Riders. Idle Talk provided his jockey Anna Pycroft with her first winner in a three-runner race at Kingston St Mary, while Stitchnick may have needed the run when travelling well until pulling up two out at Wadebridge for Ollie Barrett.

Following on is the 2m4f Open Maiden. Of the 23 entered Driftwood Pride ran a creditable fifth behind The Wealerdealer at Black Forest Lodge for trainer Kayley Jones, Marlpit Oak has been in contention on a few of her outings the latest when she fell at the twelfth at Barbury earlier this month.

The Mixed Open has attracted eleven entries and of these That’s Rythem collected Hunter Chase wins at Bangor and Uttoxeter last season and only just missed out on another at Stratford in June when two and a quarter lengths behind Salsify for trainer Sally Duckett. Hugh Wilson’s prolific Divine Intavention (Coronation Cup winner) may be looking to follow up on his recent impressive win at Black Forest Lodge for Mark Wall.

Exeter racecourse sponsor the Intermediate. Mister Tiger is clocking up wins fast and looks set to progress to Open company soon for Sam Allwood; the Robert Chanin trained Ned White set a strong pace at Wadebridge and only got mugged for the race in the last 50 yards by Alright John and Batu Ferringhi.

The concluding race is the three mile Open Maiden. This race looks wide open and the bookies will be a good indicator of the favorites out of the 19 entered.

Bar, bookies, catering and numerous trade stands are all on site. Entrance is £20 per car or £10 car and driver. The course is 2 miles SE of Chudleigh just off A380 between Exeter and Newton Abbot. Postcode TQ13 OAE.
