Danehill Flyer

Yesterday was one of those times you don’t want to write about, the horsebox came home without Danehill Flyer, he very sadly lost his life falling at the first flight in the novice hurdle at Doncaster, our only runner of the day. Poor Danny had been with us since a 2 year old and was just learning his job over hurdles, he had been keen and quick on his first two starts, but this time he just stepped at the first, and he paid the ultimate price, although thankfully did not suffer.  Commiserations to his owners, Keith and Jayne Sivills – and Sarah Olley has looked after him since he arrived, she had been very attached to this real character as well.  Some photos of Danny:
