TWO WEEKS TO OPEN DAY
I’m really pleased with the way in which the horses are shaping up. They look great and we should have some runners in early October provided the ground is OK. Somersby looks superb and may go for the 2 ½ mile Graduation Chase at Kempton on October 31st. Calgary Bay will hopefully run before that at Cheltenham in October. He looks awesome! So big but such a gentle horse. The younger ones are great too and we are thrilled with the new animals from Ireland whom we are syndicating. They have settled in really well and one of them, Ballyculla by Westerner, could race in a fortnight. He is very fit! Obviously he needs to have owners first!
We are preparing for our small select Open Day on 25th September. The horses will parade at 12 noon and the yard will then be open till 3.30pm. It will cost £10 per person (Children under 16 free). Do come along and support us. The profits will go to the Chiltern & Thames Air Ambulance. There will be a dog agility display in the afternoon plus excellent raffles and tombola. You can bring your own dogs too for walk round the farm! We are just praying that it does not rain!
