Royal Ascot Day 1

The excitement of Royal Ascot – no other week like it, a different excitement from The Cheltenham Festival – no pressure with no runners just fantastic racing and brilliant to meet up with so many friends.

If you are heading there today don’t forget we have a picnic in the Owners & Trainers Car Park so do come and join us – there will be plenty of fizz!!

At Stratford Jamie & Issy are in charge with The Kvilleken and plenty of our Martin Keighley Racing Club. He’s in good form and is back to a winnable mark and it would be great if he could put in a decent performance for everyone today. Andrew Tinkler rides and he should love the ground and we know he likes Stratford.

Thanks to my team this morning for pulling out nearly 2 hours earlier than normal to get the horses ridden and out in their paddocks before it gets too hot.
