The Arthur tour continues on Saturday at Ayr where he will be parading at 12pm. Just after him, there is a parade of Retrained Racehorses, including our old friend Lie Forrit, and also Tchico Polos who ran for us and Sandra Giles a few seasons ago.
This afternoon we had a visit from the Kincarrathie House care home in Perth who brought some lovely ladies to see Arthur. He adored meeting them, pictured.
The Racing Post have asked me to give them my 'Five Favourite' things, and while I pondered over giving them five favourite places to take a campervan, I decided on five favourite retired racehorses. It made me think again how kind and adaptive racehorses are; while brave and bold on the track they are still gentle souls as evidenced by Arthur this afternoon.
