As the summer has gone, and we enter the Autumn phase of the year, we are excited to say that our 2 remaining 2 year olds will soon be making their debuts. Empress Lulu had her stalls test at The Rowley Mile last weekend and passed with flying colours after pinging the gates and got into a love rhythm using her long stride. Jockey Kyle Strydom was onboard and was impressed with her attitude, so much so that he personally sent me a text asking to keep the ride for her debut. Exciting times ahead with this filly (and we still have a few shares left). Wannabeawallais continuing his work and is stepping up each week, and the plan is for him to have a couple of runs in November all going well. Tomorrow we have Battleofbaltimore declared at Leicester and he is in a good place after his gelding operation and hopefully he will be showing his owners his true ability on the racecourse that we see at home every day. Confederation is being aimed for the AW where we have seen his best efforts so far. Can he finally get his 1st win for us!!!

There is lots of work going on behind the scenes to try and increase our string with another addition as we look to purchase a N.H horse. But we need YOU, so get in touch and add your name to our buyers list here

until next time…..

31st August 23

It’s been a while since I last did a blog, as we have had a busy few weeks with runners and family holiday commitments. Both Confederation & Battleofbaltimore have raced at Bath & Catterick. Confederation had 2 lovely runs at Bath finishing 2nd and 4th. He is such a consistent and honest horse that thrives on his racing. We have just entered him at Bath again for next week (6th Sept). Battleofbaltimore headed north to Catterick on a hot glorious summer’s day, but only to find the race too strong and was tailed off. It was a head scratcher as he’s been working well at home with some much higher rated horses , so this wasn’t his true running. We are still planning on what to do with him going forward. I would like to congratulate our trainer Dylan and his entire team for continuing to bang in the winners especially the one at the Ebor Festival, SILVER SWORD! A huge boost to everyone involved. As we prepare to go into September and the sales season in particular we are looking for buyers to add their names onto our buyers list and get involved in any future purchases (Both flat & NH). So, if this is you, get in touch with me and come join the Blue & Yellow revolution. Lot’s of fun to be had in the group chats and on the racecourse. You have direct access to our trainer as Dylan is on all the chats and he allows us to have 7 day access to the yard so you can visit your horse(s) whenever you want. This alone is a great added bonus of joining us. What are you waiting for, get involved today and contact me here. Until next time…. Andrew

Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend especially to all you Father’s. Saturday saw our trainer Dylan saddle a big Saturday winner with Faro De San Juan at a tasty 25/1, this brings Dylan’s strike rate to 21% for the year so far with only a handful of runners that are ready to race. Wait until he un-leashes his 2 year olds. Yesterday saw our 2 greyhounds both run at Harlow for Diane & Emma Jinks. Millbank CatchUs made a brilliant winning debut making all in the 238m sprint and going on to win 2 lengths. Shares available here then it was the turn of Catch My Tail our prolific winner and syndicate legend who finished a good 3rd but was running on after the gap closed on him during the final bends. He’ll be back winning in no time (he’s still only a puppy).

This past week also saw Wannabeawallaget gelded. He took the operation well and is back on the walker for the next week or so before he resumes his training duties. We are hopeful he will be racing in August and will have a few runs before he heads off on a winter break and come back for his 3 year old training. We still have shares available so do get in touch here and become a fully fledged “Catch Us” owner. We also have had a couple of shares come available in both Confederation and Empress Lulu. Until next time…

This week we saw Battleofbaltimore make his debut at Brighton in a 6f restricted band D maiden race. After showing greenness in the prelims, he jumped out of the stalls well and tucked in behind the leading pair. He showed greenness again coming down the Brighton hill 3f out. He stayed on well to finish 3rd. He will have learnt a lot from the experience and will come on leaps and bounds from that run. Lots to look forward to. We had superb support on course again with 18 owners in attendance. Next week we have Confederation entered at Lingfield. Our other two 2 year olds will soon be making their debuts. Shares are available so do get involved and join the fun on and off the racecourse. Contact us here

In other news, we have secured another sponsor for one of our horses. St. Agnes Hotel is now the proud sponsor of Wannabeawallaby. We are delighted to have secured more support for our ever growing syndicate. We have other sponsorship opportunities, so get in touch and work alongside one of the U.Ks fastest growing syndicates. Neal Mather, owner & director of The St. Agnes Hotel said we are very excited and proud to be sponsoring Wannabeawallaby, and look forward to a successful future with both the horse and Catch Us If You Can Racing Syndicate”.

Good morning, it’s been a quiet week or so for Catch Us as we prepare for our first 2 year old runner who has been entered at Brighton on the 13th in a restricted Band D maiden. We have also entered Confederation at Lingfield on Monday 12th too. All four of our horses are going well and the other two will soon be making their debuts too. I would like to take a moment to thank all of our owners for their patience and continued support in our syndicate. Thank You!

Last weekend saw a dozen of our owners descend onto the Epsom Hill on Oaks day for a “Posh Picnic” and lap up the sunshine, enjoying each others company and found a few winners amongst them. We will try and do more group days out over the course of the summer. Also last week saw our 2nd edition of the monthly newsletter go out to all owners which has been very well received. We are working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring as much content to our owners as we can and provide unrivalled continuing information to keep us ahead of the rest. This is ownership at it’s best. We currently still have shares available here so do get in touch and join the fun on and off the racecourse. June looks to be a busy month with 3 entries already and possibly a couple of more towards the end of the month.

24th May 23

Last week confederation ran his usual solid race in a very tough and competitive field. He has 14 owners in attendance cheering him on. He has since dropped 2 further lbs the handicapper which means we’ll be able to find him a race that suits all conditions and hopefully he can finally get his head in front for his faithful and supportive owners.

In other news if you tuned in to Sky Sports Racing on Monday you would’ve seen Dylan and his yard being showcased. As you know we are a keen supporter of Dylan and now have 4 horses in training with him. Dylan is a G1 winning trainer in South Africa, and since moving to the UK 2 years ago he has now acquired over 25 horses within the past year and looks to have a great future here in the UK. As always we are keen to add to our string but we need your support too, we still have shares left in our gorgeous chestnut colt Australia (Australia Colt)! Shares are priced at £605 upfront & £75pm all inclusive fees per 2.5% share holding. We also offer the opportunity for you top name the horse outright if you purchase a minimum of 25% (a perfect gift for a loved one) Get in touch here and join the fun. Upon purchasing a share you will receive a welcome pack and be included in our fun WhatsApp group chats where you’ll have access to our trainer Dylan himself… We are delighted the fact that Dylan operates an open yard policy which means you can visit your horse(s) 7 days a week, there is no better way to experience ownership like this! Until next time…

16th May 23

Its another race week as we have declared Confederation to run at HQ on Thursday in the 20:40 race. On paper it looks a tough one but we go there in good spirits as he is rearing to go again after last weeks race and hopefully he’ll come out of the race well and we go again. In the world of greyhound racing our legend “Buddy” trained Emma Jinks won again on his first attempt at 4 bends beating the field 10 lengths. He has now won 4 out of his 6 starts for us. He is fast becoming a household name in and around both Harlow and our home town of Newmarket. This week also saw the new addition to our greyhound string with an exciting puppy from Ireland who has been given the kennel name of “Bailey” and will race under the name of Millbank CatchUs. We still have shares available. Talking of shares we have around 50% of shares left in our breeze up purchase “Ozzie” a chestnut colt Australia and also a couple of shares have become available in Confederation (who runs again on Thursday) contact Andrew here for all share options. Get involved in what looks to be an exciting year for the syndicate and it’s owners. Until next time….

12th May 23

As we head into the weekend what looks to be another damp & dreary one, let’s take stock on Confederations race last Monday. He ran a solid 4th on his return to action after a small break, the ground seemed to be deeper than ideal for him, but that never dampened the spirits of his owners (all 36 of them) that were in attendance. The rain held, we sang happy birthday to our Racing Manager who we made wear his ‘Birthday Sash’ all day and we had fun all evening. Winsor racecourse and the associates of ARC Racing Company couldn’t be more helpful and provided us with a great evening.

Confederation came out of his race well and has been entered in a race at HQ on Thursday 18th May. Our 3 babies are all coming on strongly and continuing to impress Dylan with their professional nature. Our latest recruit has been given the stable name of “Ozzie” and has settled into life at the stables. He’s been working well and looks to have early ability which is great to see. We currently have shares in both Confederation & “Ozzie”. Get in touch here for all share options! This week we sourced our 2nd Greyhound for the syndicate after the success of our first “Buddy – Catch My Tail”, she will be arriving to our Greyhound trainer Emma from her breeder this Sunday. Stay tuned for share availability! Get involved and join us on our journey, lot’s of fun to be had in both our horses & greyhounds…

Until next time…

5th May 23

I said it would be a busy week and it most definitely has been. Yesterday we purchased LOT 229 at the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Ups. We are now offering shares here he is a solid and beautiful chestnut colt Australia and out of a winning mare Yeah Baby! As the auctioneers gavel went down there was definitely an echo of “Yeah Baby” from the team behind Catch Us. It’s always nice to get one from your shortlist. It’s been great adding new owners into the syndicate with their interest in our new colt. We have plenty of room for more owners in all of our future horses, so get involved. Tomorrow quite a few of our owners will be descending on Newmarket for the 2000g meeting which looks the real deal in terms of quality on show.

Three of our string worked lovely this morning up Warren Hill, with Battleofbaltimore leading them up the gallop. Keep posted for more updates on our newest recruit! Be Lucky! Bet Wisely! Be Merry! Get Lucky! and most importantly Stay Safe! Until next time.

2nd May 23

This week looks to be a busy one which starts with the Guineas breeze up sales on Thursday in which we will be attending and hopefully adding to our string, followed King Charles coronation and the Guineas meeting at HQ at the weekend and today we made the long awaited entry for Confederation for Monday 8th at Royal Windsor which if he wins would make a double celebration as we will also be celebrating our racing managers 40th birthday on the same day. The entries look competitive enough at this early stage, however he is working well and definitely needed his few months break. Kyle Strydom will be taking the reigns as he looks to add another win under his belt for our in-form trainer Dylan Cunha.

As mentioned we will be at the upcoming sales this week and we are hopeful of adding to our string with a breeze up purchase, so if you’re interested in joining our buyers list and getting involved in future purchases then please get in contact here stay updated on all of our socials.

27th April 23

A huge congratulations to our trainer Dylan Cunha who recorded yet another victory last night at Lingfield. His horses running to form in the last 14 days is 80% and the last 14 days he has saddled 5 runners with 3 winners which equates to a 60% strike rate. Phenomenal!

This bodes exceptionally well, especially as we eagerly await the return of Confederation at Windsor on the 8th May! Both of our 2yr olds are working towards their debuts too. Lots to look forward to as we actively look for more horses at each sale to add to our string. Register your interest here.

24th April 23

Confederation (far side) preparing for his return to the turf in the next couple of weeks. We’ll be active in the upcoming sales, so get involved and register your interest here
