More schooling this morning made all the more exciting by thick fog; the horses all jumped well though and we are looking forward to racing at the end of next week.
We had a nice visit from the Racing Post's reporter Ben Hutton who came to compile our stable tour, due in the paper on Wednesday. We had a great morning going through the horses, rounded off with a video taken with Big River. I dread to hear the final edit as in the background there is an insistent barking spaniel, keen for someone to throw his stick. I wonder if they can sound edit him out?
Ben is a good friend of the yard after he reported on the Grand National and was at the celebrations on the Saturday night. I believe that he was made an honorary member of the yard staff, and it was great to welcome him back. Ben is pictured getting a cuddle from Big River.
