It has been a busy December at West Lockinge with plenty of horses in the yard. We have concentrated on their jumping and fittening work. On Boxing Day, 3 of Camilla Radford’s horses are running at Kempton – Knock House and Warden Hill will be ridden by A P McCoy and Sgt Reckless (surprisingly reverting to hurdles) will be ridden by Noel Fehily.
Calgary Bay is getting nicely fit at the farm and will run in a hunter chase in February with the Foxhunters’ at Aintree in April as his goal.
I am spending Christmas in Connemara in Ballynahinch Castle Hotel where Terry and I had so many wonderful holidays. It will be sad to go there without him but I have some great friends over there and fantastic memories. My house will be well occupied and looked after for me at West Lockinge, and it should be a good break. I will watch the Racing on Boxing Day from the Betting Shop in Clifden.
