    Hi,
    Anybody know what has happened to Tim Pitt? He seems to have been replaced by D Murphy.
    Thanks.

    The stable is owned by Willie McKay, a football ‘agent’. He makes his millions by shuffling second rate players from club to club and pocketing a cut from the transfer fee. No player is allowed to stay at a club for more than two seasons, before he’s on the move again.

    It seems that he’s now applying the same logic to his choice of trainer, making a change before the closure of the transfer window.

    If he ever gets confused, we could end up with Tim Pitt playing for Bolton and Nicholas Anelka training his horses.

    Indeed Willie Mackay does own the yard and many of the horses in partnerships with a lot of proffesional footballers.

    However this season has not been a good one for Tim Pitt with just the 1 winner from 57 runners.

    Last year the stable was on fire with 31 winners and a decent S/R of 20% and a L.S.P. of 42 points.

    In his first season Tim Pitt had just the 1 runner which duly won.

    The other problem was that it was a well known gambling yard with some of the footballer owners lumping on some of the runners.

    On the 23 March for example Fast Freddie form this yard was very well backed especially on betfair but could only finish second. Happy As Larry was also another expensive gamble that went down.

    Lasy year when ever the money was seen to be ‘on’ they were winning!

    I hope you’re wrong. One of his clients, Scott Brown, has just signed a five year deal with Celtic, and it’s safe to say a few people willl be more than disappointed if he exits ‘Paradise’ after a couple of seasons. I shall watch with interest.

    Himself,

    I’m sure your new Messiah will be with you for at least five years – after all, who ever heard of a footballer not seeing out the full length of his contract.

    My comments about Mr McKay are purely tongue in cheek – but there isn’t a suitable emoticon for that.

    Seagull is right about the poor results so far this year, although I’d say that was down to the lack of quality horses rather than the trainer, but it’s all a matter of opinion. As the owner, Mr McKay is certainly entitled to try a new man in charge.

    How about that then!
    I noticed that Spume had been entered up for a few races when I was digging up the Tim Pitt stats this morning so I had a small ‘co incidence’ bet on it tonight and it turned out to be Danny’s first winner for owner Willie Mackay.
    :lol:

    Yes, the concept of satire is not lost on me…er, I think. :?

    This horse failed to win in 5 starts for Dermot Weld but new owner Willie Mackay saw it come from last to first to collect.

    Is it true his yard is down because of a virus???
    he came down to the northern racing college (was a student there at the time) to see us and have a word with the instructors, didn’t seem like he was a very busy man :shock:
