It’s snowing on site! We love a bit of festive cheer…thankyou webmaster Keith
This is Tuesday’s news but typed early on Wednesday morning as I am busy working on a BUMPER Winter Newsletter for our owners – please expect it in your Christmas cards. There is so much to write i didn’t know where to start but have managed to get to page five this evening, and at least the same again to write, so i had better keep typing. This time of year is always my busiest as i am also trying to complete my painting commissions – add moving house and two children (ponies & dogs) to the mix and theres going to be be some pretty long nights ahead!
For those of you who might like to purchase a Signed Limited Edition Print for Christmas I have the following available. These can be sent wrapped in tissue and rolled by special delivery at £7.50 or collected from the yard or races.
Yesterday saw Julie give ‘Next Edition’ a good ride at Wolverhampton – she was always in the right place at the right time (expect at the post!) and not only did she manage to settle him possibly better than anyone this season, he also travelled sweetly for her and came into the race at just the right time round the home bend. Eddie maybe didnt quite see out the 1m 6f, but ran to his best result yet this year for 3rd beaten just a length and a half. It was a memorable first ride for our new lady amateur, and the feedback from the Dibble Bridge Partnership Owners has been heartwarming.
Today it was back to the office with a couple of runners at Wolverhampton, Kiwayu faring best with a 4th after being slow out as he is apt to do. We know he is becoming well handicapped, Phil is very keen to get a win into this talented but frustrating customer sooner rather than later – this was his first AW effort for us after re-joining the yard last month. City Dreams struggled and needs major help from the handicapper. Simon should be nearly home after a tiring day at work and then the marathon W’hampton drive, we wont miss it when AW racing comes to the North.
Moscow Presents was having his comeback after more than 600 days off and he tired in the soft ground at Southwell, Adam wisely pulling him up when he felt he had no more to give. The most important thing is that his legs are good in the morning and then it will hopefully be onwards and upwards with the likes of him and Cleve Cottage over the next few months.
Tomorrow we pause for breath with no runners declared but its looking busy for the rest of the week. Update tomorrow evening.
