    He probably got sick of watching Argentine win for his new yard <!– s:) –>:)<!– s:) –>

    His declining strike-rate shows how he’s been struggling in the last few years…

    2009 11.09%
    2008 9.4%
    2007 8.2%
    2006 14.5%
    2005 15.4%
    2004 18.3%
    2003 18.5%
    2002 21.8%
    2001 23.5%

    That is sad news to hear, i always liked the Scottish trainer, the yard have had 10 runners this year failing on all 10 accounts over the jumps and only 4 winners on the flat

    Jumps

    2009 :

    10 runners – 10 defeats

    2008 :

    12 Winners from 79 runs

    2007 :

    10 Winners from 141 runs

    Flat

    2009 :

    4 Winners from 40 runs

    2008 :

    4 Winners from 46 runs

    (Including 1-7 on the AW)

    2007 :

    2 Winners from 30 runs

    (Including 0-2 on the AW)

    Overall :

    40 Winners from 326 runs

    It looks like he has not got many in his yard this year, or has not got the quality he wants at Carrutherstown to really stay in the game. real shame

    He does have a runner at Newcastle on Friday "

    Jenny Potts

    " won last time out and has Paul Mulrennan in the plate

    I’m guessing its as much an economic decision as anything. Always seemed like a good bloke during interviews and knew how to train, flat or jump. Despite so few runners in 2008 his strike rate was not bad and even had some nice winners like Against The Grain in Ayr Silver cup. Good luck to him in the future though. Does pose one question…will someone else take over the carruthertown operation??

    Len Lungo’s letter published in yesterday’s Racing Post dispelled the idea that he was packing up for financial reasons. The gist of it was that at 60 years of age he was now looking to do other things. That aside, I reckon the sport is in his blood and he simply won’t be able to resist keeping a few jumpers on the go under permit.
