The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Mike Foster: October 2016
Tattenhall based 'Deva Racing' celebrates 10 years in horse racing next year. Deva Racing offers fixed cost syndicate ownership with leading local trainers Donald McCain (Cholmondeley) and Tom Dascombe (Malpas). 2016 has proved to be the syndicate's best ever year with 15 wins so far and over 35 placed horses. In total the team have managed to win over £340,000 in prize monies for owners.
Mike Foster the Director of Racing at Deva Racing said "in the last 9 years we have won 56 races and have had 118 horses placed, thanks to the trainers and their wonderful staff, and especially the horses — that means our owners have experienced the thrill of walking into the winners enclosure on 174 occasions. This is very much the icing on the cake for owners. Most people actually enjoy the stable visits just as much. On a visit, owners get to speak to the trainers and see their horses working on the gallops. It's the behind the scenes bits that they get to see that they really enjoy, the stuff racegoers don't see.
This year has been phenomenal — the highlights so far are Conqueress winning a £10,000 bonus race for Tom Dascombe and the 20 length victory of Our Dancing Dandy at Bangor on Dee on his racecourse debut for Donald McCain. We have plenty of exciting horses for the winter ahead. Subtle Grey will be aimed at a National and he looks a real prospect for this year. Treble winning What Happens Now is in great form and he can win more races. We are very excited about our most expensive purchase Thomas Do; he is a more long term prospect and a real McCain type of horse. He is one that Ginger (McCain) would approve of!"
