Martin’s blog 8th August

Work morning and Warren Marston in to ride out. We worked Bobble Emerald, Lord Condi, Sporty Yankee, The Kvilleken, Miss Condi, Enforcement, Cottersrock and Thady Quil. Some of the horses are starting to canter and some of those who have been in full work for a while did swinging canters second time up.

One of our main jockeys Andrew Tinkler is counting down the days until he gets married to long term girlfriend Sophie Cotton on Saturday. Let’s hope the weather picks up by then as it’s been one of the wettest Augusts for quite some time and the team here are great just getting on with it – typical August English weather frustratingly.

We having started the 10 day break for Jump Racing although we may have a few entries on the flat early next week. Bit of a strange time of year for the break but it does mean that jump jockeys with families get some time to spend with them during their holidays.
