James Tate's Two-Year-Olds (2yos) for the Flat Season 2021

James Tate is a trainer who you can rely on having a nice crop of two-year-olds. 

A variety of owners make this successful Newmarket yard a powerhouse. 

For me, it is the connection with Saeed Manana which holds special memories. It's always intrigued me how such a rich owner doesn't mind buying a fair number of cheaper yearling and breeze-up purchases. It really isn't a surprise because they win their share of races. With over 400 winners this stable has been built on success.

Last year, for a sizable stable, they had a select number of juveniles rated as their star performers. In fact, only five two-year-olds were given significant engagements. This proves the worth of a stable because they know their horses and don't waste their time tilting at windmills. 

For reference, these are the two-year-olds I noted with my thoughts: 

Sense Of Romance

''Will improve at three''

Victory Heights 

''Won three times at two and contested Group class''

Live Stream 

''Won on debut and contested Listed class''

Risk Of Thunder 

''A consistent horse, winner on second start and contested Listed class''

Desert History 

''Winner and contested Listed class''
