Wednesday August 19th
We had just the one runner declared today ‘Galardo’ at Stratford, but Phil made him a non runner due to a change in ground conditions, he wouldn’t have appreciated the soft conditions. He’ll be out soon.
Phil hasn’t attended the Derby Sale in Ireland today as due to new Irish rules, you had to quarantine for 14 days in Ireland beforehand. Surprisingly they are still making strong money: the market is holding up for these top class NH bred 3 year olds but Phil prefers to buy himself rather than through agents. We have our largest team yet of NH horses at home, and the winter horses are all progressing well. We haven’t sent any of our homebred stock to the sales and as a result, each year we are having some well bred stock coming through.
Its a quiet week on the runners front now and we won’t have any declared until Saturday.
Here we have some cracking good action shots from Megan, the horses in the sunshine the last couple of days…
