AN IMPROVING 5YR OLD GELDING, 2 WINS & 6 PLACED FINISHES SINCE HE JOINED US, AND STILL MORE TO COME
We have a very limited number of shares available in Gold and Green Crowd favourite ACED IT due to a change of circumstances for one of his share-holders. Ace joined us on a mark of 70 from Joseph O'Brien and following his progression with Camilla, he is now rated 86 and makes his listed class debut on December 1st. His form stacks up very well, leading to a strong belief that he continues to improve. We are aiming him at the prestigious all-weather finals day in the Spring, and fully expect to see him make his mark at Listed level over the winter.
Trained on the South Coast, near Lewes, ACED IT is in the care of mother and daughter training team, Camilla and Eliza Poulton. Eliza spotted Ace at the sales, and we were lucky enough to secure for the only bid, and Team Poulton has now done what neither the legendary John Oxx and the up and coming champion in waiting, Joseph O'Brien couldn't do and have won races with Ace.
8 of Ace's best race ratings have come in the 9 runs he has had for Camilla, and we cannot wait to see what else he has to come over the winter months, hopefully capping off on The All-Weather Championship Finals Day with a couple of wins along the way. After the winter, he will get a break to freshen up and then will be brought back for a summer campaign with targets at Ascot, Goodwood and York all on the agenda.
Aced It was bred by the highly successful and prestigious Newton Anner Stud in Ireland and started his career with John Oxx, where he underwhelmed in his 4 starts. However, the 2nd of those races did see ACED IT finish right behind Group One-winning Japan, in a race that also had top-class performers Sydney Opera House Patrick Sarsfield and Norway all in there. It was then onto Joseph O'Brien for ACE to see if a change of scenery could help, but other than a very 2nd place at Bellewstown off a mark of 70, he really didn't show a huge amount so he was sent off to the sales in October 2020, where we bought him for the absurd price of 800gns.
After a period of settling in, some changes in his training regime to help strengthen him up, ACE thrived for a step-up in trip. An excellent 4th place on debut was followed up by back to back wins before horrible ground saw his one bad run for us. A short break followed and another 5 starts resulting in finishes of 2-4-2-3-2 and the five best independently rated finishes off his career. There is a lot more to come from ACE, and he is likely to improve more for a further step up in trip as he continues to strengthen.

TRAINER CAMILLA POULTON
After a long and successful period as assistant trainer to Jamie Poulton, Camilla has taken over the licence with her eldest daughter Eliza as assistant.
Camilla’s attention to detail and care over the years speaks for itself boasting a low injury rate where horses are trained in the most natural environment possible. Based at Telscombe, every horse gets the individual attention and treatment needed and cater to their specific needs. One of the main priorities is bringing back horses season after season, sound, sweet and healthy. The way the team train their horses encourages them to relax and enjoy their work here on the South Downs which Team Poulton is situated in the heart of.
The small secluded yard in the hamlet of Telscombe village is just a short walk away from the beautiful coast and beach which is regularly used for the horses and has a huge impact on their physical and mental well-being. The string enjoys a different training routine every day surrounded by stunning scenery which keeps them sweet and enjoying their work.
Other facilities include an outdoor sand school complete with barrels, show jumps and mini hurdles, a set of racecourse hurdles, chase fences, jumping lane of tyre jumps and cross country jumps. They also have a 3 bay set of starting stalls followed by a 3-furlong turf strip. The turf gallops consist of a mile and half stretch along the coast, unlimited miles of Downland in which they include steep hills for interval training and a 5-furlong steady climb canter for every day.
Beautiful all year turnout paddocks including enough space to turn horses away for their holidays are a real asset. Every horse is turned out as much as possible which ensures their physical and mental health to be as consistent as possible and helps them relax into their everyday training routine.
The Gold and Green Crowd is all about building a positive community for the betterment of UK horse racing. By supporting smaller trainers, and younger jockeys we are starting to make an impact, but without our members, we would be nowhere.
Feedback from the members is imperative to our future decisions and focus, and we always welcome it and love to share it!
"I love having the opportunity to visit the stables and chat with the trainers while watching my horse work. I know there are a few of us involved, but that just enhances the experience. I have met some great people and the winners' enclosure is a cracking place to share with them"
I am in my first year and it's by far the best syndicate I have ever been in and is excellent value for money. I go racing a lot and have been grateful to go racing twice as an owner with the club and had brilliant days out.
