BUMPERS TO JUMPERS
bumperstojumpers.co.uk was launched on Summer Plate Day at Market Rasen in July 2018. The idea was that after twenty plus years of punting, reasonably successfully, on National Hunt Racing, we wanted to challenge ourselves. We love talking about, writing about and above all watching National Hunt, Point to Point Racing and National Hunt Bloodstock Sales. We have no interest whatsoever in the Flat, we respect it but it’s not us.
So, on this site, we will showcase our wonderful horses and our own Bloodstock interests.
Paul and I are pleased to welcome you to the latest version of bumperstojumpers.co.uk.
We are now concentrating all our interests on finding the very best National Hunt Bloodstock we can, whilst developing our own Bloodstock operations. There will be a lot of references in the news pages to form and what goes on at the track on race days but we will not indulge in anymore public tipping. In all honesty, as good as we are and as well as we have done over years as punters, we found you need to be a particular type of person to take on that public role and without either of us having the skin of a Rhinoceros three times over and not having a care free who you affecting attitude, we found it just wasn’t for us. Indeed its been the case that since we stopped public tipping our results have shot back up to where we were before we started that venture alongside the syndication business.
So all our horses news with regard to running plans and results together with our Bloodstock activities, what we are buying/selling/breeding from, is what this site is all about, and as the days and weeks roll by the NEWS section will be updated regularly to inform you what is happening
Paul and I are, as we write in negotiations to buy fantastically well bred mares with a view to racing them and eventually becoming broodmares. We will keep you informed of all developments on that front. At the time of writing we a fully booked up for Punchestown Festival in April/May 2021 and whilst we are there we will be visiting a number of Stud farms to look at what stock they may be sending to Goffs uk at Doncaster in May, the Land Rover sale at Goffs Ire in June or Tattersalls Ire Derby sale or August National Hunt Sale. We will be also on the lookout for any potential broodmares with the right pedigree to form a foundation basis for our breeding operation.
In essence this site will not only be for our Racing activities but for also for people in the Bloodstock industry who may be interested in our future stock or what we may want to buy.
We look forward to meeting you all on course or at the sales.
