Ballygarvey has arrived and takes everything in his stride. He is a really nice “person” and very friendly in the stable. He had a good journey from Ireland overnight on Thursday, and arrived with us Friday morning at 6.30am. On Saturday he was out on the gallops and we like what we see! He just needs some shareholders. He should be ready for a race in about 3 weeks time provided all the paperwork is up to date. Please seriously consider a share in this really promising 5 year old!
Fortunately we had no horses to run at Newbury on Saturday. What a freak tragedy they experienced there. It all looked so unreal on the television. One could not believe what one was seeing.
We did not run Soixante at Kempton on Friday as developed a tooth abscess and his face and mouth were noticeably swollen when he got to the races. Horses seem to dream up a lot of excuses not to run! Fortunately it has responded to antibiotics and it is already much better.
