Martin’s Blog 4th June

Gorgeous weather all weekend and we are still buzzing about Dr Dunraven’s win on Saturday and thrilled that all of his owners, who have kindly leased him to the Racing Club for the summer, are also delighted that he won. They’ve been also so kind with their praise of our whole team here managing to get him to peak fitness – as well as my Assistant Foxy who rides him every day and does everything with him, it’s a huge thanks to my farrier Nick Partridge, physios Maggie Turner and Hannah Ashton and to the rest of the team who all play their part.

Andrew Tinker, who gave Dr D such a superb ride, was in this morning and we schooled Young Phoenix, Matravers, Sporty Yankee, Primogeniture, Mr Mafia, Morning Herald and Weyburn. They all jumped well on good ground thanks to the watering we did yesterday and especially to my yardman Lucjan who got in before 6am to continue watering.

Mondays are busy with farrier and physio Maggie Turner in and some of the horses coming in off their summer holidays (a couple who went out early) and a few entries for later in the week so still all systems go!
