Martin’s Blog 17th May

Rain, rain and more rain! It simply didn’t stop this morning so the horses have had a rare day in their stables instead of being turned out. Hats off to my team who carried on soaking wet without complaining – tough lot!

We had extra riders this morning too including Max Comley and also Harry Stock who is always a pleasure to have in. Harry’s father Chris is a member of our Racing Club and does a lot of our printing through his company Typecraft. They also produce the fantastic signs we have around the yard and in particular the one every owner aspires to have their name on – our Cheltenham Honours’ Board! A new line has just been added after Brillare Momento’s wonderful victory in April.

No runners today but busy spiking the grass around the schooling fences as I think we will be able to school on the grass tomorrow which will be fantastic.

Happy Birthday to my Mum who is celebrating a big birthday today!
