Welcome to The Posh Pundit
Become part of something special – become a member of a racing club!
We have opened memberships for the 2023/4 season, offering shares at £60 for new members. We have also added a new VIP membership, with additional benefits. Memberships are expected to be snapped up quickly, after what was a very impressive last run at Kempton.
Club Membership packages are available in the highly-rated five-year-old gelding called “Thank You Ma’am“ who is in training with Grade 1 winning trainer Georgina Nicholls – “Thank You Ma’am is one of the most impressive youngsters I’ve ever seen and he improves daily. I can see a very successful year ahead.“
By Black Sam Bellamy, the sire responsible for Cheltenham Gold Cup second The Giant Bolster and Grade 1 Long Walk Hurdle winner Sam Spinner, the promising youngster is out of Pepite Rose, a prolific mare for Venetia Williams who was also a top-tier second to Sire De Grugy in Sandown’s Celebration Chase.
Thank You Ma’am’s last outing was on Boxing Day at Fontwell, when he finished 2nd. In November he finished an excellent 3rd at Kempton, when he made a mockery of his odds 125/1. His jockey Olive Nicholls said, “Thank You Ma’am has come on leaps and bounds and was unrecognisable from the horse which ran earlier in the year. I cannot wait to partner him in further races, and I’m confident that we will be in the winners’ enclosure pretty soon!”
Thank You Ma’am has been sourced by the 13-time champion trainer’s ex-wife Georgina Nicholls, who enjoyed success at the highest level for herself when she saddled Phar Bleu to capture the Finale Juvenile at Chepstow.
Pre training the gelding was ridden by legendary 20-time champion jockey Sir Anthony McCoy, who put the chestnut through his paces at home and rated him as a “grand horse”.
Thank You Ma’am has been named in honour of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who was an enormous supporter and enthusiast of the sport.
