UPDATES – Alphamikefoxtrot

February 14th, 2022
Raced over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack.  Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He will be retired from racing. I will send him to Nicole to our Life After Racing program to find a good home for him.

January 19th, 2022
Raced over 1000m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the Polytrack. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: The distance was too short for him with a strong tail wind and made it difficult for him to keep up. It was not a bad run from him.

November 22nd, 2021
Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He was caught 3 wide throughout the race and stayed on well to finish 5th.

November 1st, 2021
Raced over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He was in a great position from a good draw and ran a good third. He always gives his best.

August 30th, 2021
He should have finished closer in race over 1200m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville today, as he raced wide around the turn. He needs a good draw and with luck in running, he can find himself in the winner’s box. See the replay here.

May 10th, 2021
He showed good signs of a form return this afternoon finishing second behind Agent Murphy over 1200m. He had to overcome a wide draw, but was given a good ride by Stuart Randolph and the pair finished the race off strongly. See the replay here.

February 7th, 2021
An honest performance by Alphamikefoxtrot once again, this time on his Hollywoodbets Scottsville course debut, when running on well in the closing stages. See the replay here.

December 7th, 2020
Decent effort by this son of Var today. There aren’t many races on the program for him over the next few weeks, so he will now have a well deserved rest on the farm. See the replay of yesterday’s run here.

November 30th, 2020
A solid effort by this gutsy horse today. He moved up well but soon ran out of steam, due the a very fast early tempo sent by the leading pair. He’ll pick up another win soon. See the replay here.

July 27th, 2020
He enjoyed the step up in trip to the 1400m, when winning the 8th race at Hollywoodbets Greyville today. A top ride by Sean Veale to get him home. Well done to trainer Darryl Moore and breeders Ridgemont Highlands.

December 1st, 2019
Despite the fact that he blew his chances at the start, in the 5th race at Hollywoodbets Greyville today, he race on nicely for second. That was a promising performance by a horse who is far more comfortable on the Poly. See the replay here.

October 30th, 2019
A solid follow up run by this son of Var, after winning prior to this. As reported by S’manga Khumalo after his run “he certainly has another win in the tank.” See the replay below:

October 28th, 2019
Back over his favourite course and distance this Wednesday 30th October 2019, after winning here in his last start in similar company, he received just a 2-point penalty for that victory and it is no surprise to see S’manga retain the ride. He has his third run back after a short absence from the course and he will be cherry-ripe for this run.

Drawn relatively well, he has another realistic chance of finding the winners enclosure and looks a solid each way bet. Final Field below:

3rd April, 2019

See below, some recent correspondence from Darryl Moore with regards to what Alphamikefoxtrot has been up to since arriving at his yard after his last start.

Alphamikefoxtrot arrived at the yard on 10/03/2019. He arrived in great condition after having a run.  He is a fit horse so we have just been ticking him over. We have nominated him for a couple of races but he drew wide in all his nominations. Clinton Binda has given us a
lot of advice on this chap as well which has helped and we will be looking to accept him for a run as soon as he cracks a draw.

Watch this space, to see more.

December 14th, 2018
ALPHAMIKEFOXTROT finally got what he deserved on Friday night, winning his 23rd attempt at the maidens.
