A very wet Thursday…
It has been absolutely lashing it down here at Green Oaks all morning and the team have done a great job of keeping the show going and getting them all out for exercise. The summer seems a long way away when you are wet through for hours and its hard to keep warm with the rain driving its way down your neck or anywhere else it can find its way in! Here is a reminder of sunnier days when we had a drone take a great video of the yard and the horses in action….
Take a look at this fantastic slideshow of favourite pics taken by Pippa, Meg and Phil Andrews – many taken on sunnier days! Some great shots of past, present and future stars….
Yesterday… Romeo Brown was the highlight of the days racing yesterday with almost a repeat performance of his previous jumpers bumper last year – a very close 2nd by 3/4 of a length under Ross Chapman.
Joe being kept busy leading out Ross on Romeo after riding Big Ears in the NHF race.
Little Bruce is home safe and sound, didnt think much of the jumpers bumper, but it will have got a good blow into him ready to find him something more his cup of tea with an extra mile and some jumps.
Niven didnt run a bad race again for 5th, only 3 lengths off the winner, just lacking that bit of speed to see him through.
Louis’ Vac Pouch & Simon.
Runners… none until Saturday now where we have Louis’ Vac Pouch going for the valuable (and competitive!) bet 365 h’cap chase at Ascot. Joining him in the lorry there will be Irish point winner Diakosaint for the novice hurdle – his second run since arriving at Green Oaks. Also on Saturday we have Michael’s Mount making his first appearance since joining us and Madeeh off to the AW at Newcastle.
Michael’s Mount – heads to Newcastle Saturday.
Lady Camelot loving her nice warm hooded ‘onesie’, much needed after exercise in the awful rain this morning.
