Has anyone heard of the trainer R Johnson in Newburn Tyne & Wear?
It is a small yard with by what looks like some good facilitities witht he odd winner or place being kicked out.
Does anybody know where you can get contact details for stables?

Personally, I try not to remember the too many nights spend in the Newburn Arms – I feel rough just thinking about it. A bit classier than the Benwell, but not much
For R Johnson try hereJuly 22, 2007 at 17:03 #108841
Excellent mate, thanks.
Where is the Newburn Arms, I never heard of that?

Mark, if you out of Newcastle along Scotty Road, passed Scotwoods Bridge, when you get to Newburn turn left after traffic lights and the Pub is on the bottom right hand corner. If you turn right there and go about 500 yards Jonhson’s gallops are behind the Leisure Center on the left (I think).
I was up there for about a year and had a great time…still recovering….August 24, 2007 at 21:20 #112442

The enthusiasm in Bob Johnson is touching, although please bear in mind that him and his son / assistant Kenny have been training for well over a decade now, for the greater part “enjoying” far thinner seasons than even this (which isn’t all that impressive taken as a whole). There’s still an awful lot of dross in his yard, especially over the jumps, where the overall quality of his string hasn’t really strengthened that much year in year out, bar the odd special performance from Joe Haywood’s special friend Bob’s Buster.
Bob’s 2007 record on the Flat stands at five winners, a 10% strike rate and a 5pt loss to a Ã‚Â£1 win stake on all runners, more or less exactly the same as his overall tally for 2005; and whilst July and August’s tally admittedy accounts for all those winners and a level stakes profit of 24pts, there have been only three other months in Bob’s entire Flat training career (which started in early 2005) in which he has returned a profit.
…Statistics which, on balance, leave me wanting to see a more sustained upturn in fortunes before I start regarding him as one to follow especially regularly.

Are you a jockey now RP, do you want to divulge more about yourself

i was only saying, i’m a very excitable person and very passionate about what i do and i show it!! there is always someone that tries to put you down and no i’m not a jockey i ride out for a trainer to answer ur question!August 25, 2007 at 15:43 #112493

Wow, talk about getting the wrong end of the stick!
Why the hell is asking you if you are a jockey perceived as trying to put you downAugust 25, 2007 at 15:48 #112494
it’s not what you say it’s the way you say itAugust 25, 2007 at 15:50 #112495
it’s not what you say it’s the way you say it
I’ve heard it all now – next time I will put it in italics perhaps, then maybe that means I am saying it in another way.
For crying out loud lighten up – I asked you if you were a jockey, nothing wrong with that surely. If you refused to answer then fine, but to accuse me of trying to put you down is laughable, therefore I will leave you be as I have better things to do on a Saturday afternoon than get into a petty arguement.
MikeAugust 25, 2007 at 15:59 #112496
hmmm already looks like you did get yourself into a petty argument and i’m sorry if i took it the wrong way but that’s just the way i saw it, it was like you were impyling i was making it up You could have just asked if i was a jockey end off….but if i did get the wrong end of the stick then i’m sorry and i will let it go ok cause theres no need for the atmosphere everytime i fancy a discussion on here
i don’t want to argue either!
