A glorious week for Royal Ascot and some fabulous racing. Belinda & I went on Tuesday and had a super day catching up with so many friends and always so much fun to be had.
So hot here today that the team started much earlier than usual so a huge thanks to them. We got the horses ridden out before it was unbearably hot and only a handful went out in their paddock for a few hours but then came back in to the coolness of their stables before the midday sun.
We are heading off back to Royal Ascot tomorrow and Jon & Jack Hughes are kindly picking us up. They have the unbeaten El Caballo with Karl Burke and he runs in The Commonwealth Cup and is highly fancied so absolutely everything crossed for them all. It will be sweltering there if the weather forecasters are correct…..! Jon & Jack won’t get much sleep tonight so good luck to them all. Looking forward to catching up with more friends there tomorrow – it really is a fabulous week.
