We now have all the entries in for the 2011 Five To Follow competition. We received 115 entries which puts £1,120 into the prize fund (three people received 2 entries for the price of 1 for scoring 100% on the Manor House Stables quiz!) With the transfer window hopefully raising additional money, the prize fund could reach £1,500 by the end of the season!
For a complete list of everyone’s entries and a list of the most selected horses, please click here.
The highlights are that the most selected 2yo was the Majestic Missile ex Khawafi Colt, by the same sire as last year’s most selected 2yo, Ballista. This colt is part of the MHS 4×10 Partnership, which there are still shares available in! To see more information about the MHS 4×10 Partnership, please click here.
The most selected 2yo filly was the Lucky Story ex Soft Touch, a half sister to Gentle Lord. This filly is part of the MHS 8×8 Partnership, which again there are still shares available in! To see more information about the MHS 8×8 Partnership, click here.
The most selected 3yo was Ballista, while the most selected older horse was Jonny Mudball, no surprise there!

The Andrew Black and Michael Owen owned Nemo Spirit returned to MHS this morning. Nemo has been running over hurdles for Tim Vaughan. He ran consistantly over hurdles to finish in the first 5 each time. He recently ran at the Cheltenham Festival in the charity race to finish 2nd. Nemo has returned to MHS for his flat turf campaign this summer.
The competition ended 19 March 2011 and the final results are now in!
Owen Promotions were top owners during the competition, having the 1st and 2nd highest scoring horses. Our ‘in-house’ winner, Alex, has kindly donated his winning tickets to 2nd placed Caroline Sanderson.
