A P McCoy's 400th winner!
Congratulations A.P. McCoy – what a jockey! It was great to see him get his 4,000 winner at Towcester today.
Life is very busy at West Lockinge Farm and the stables are once again filling up with horses. We have several DIY liveries - mostly eventers – and a lot of young horses to school and teach to jump. Also, another trainer – Gary Brown – is resident in one of the barns with his string of horses.
It was great to see Somersby win the Haldon Gold Cup last Tuesday. Mick Channon – his current trainer – was chuffed with the horse and so were we. He only left here 3 ½ weeks ago so we feel that he was still trained at West Lockinge Farm! (We did all his jumping and schooling with him). Dominic Elsworth rode a great race and it was very exciting.
Mick has some lovely young jumpers in his yard this season and we are really looking forward to the Winter season.
