It’s another warm morning, and looks like being dry and bright all day. We have been doing a couple of canters on Bury Side and the horses are moving with zest and looking very well. After a quiet spell of having very few runners, we are about to burst into life and the next week or so will see several horses on the track from Exeter Ride. 


We have one runner tonight, Crystal Pearl at Newmarket. On her last run at Yarmouth we thought she ran a bit below par but I don’t think she was given the best of rides that day. It will be interesting tonight to hear what Kieren tells us after he has ridden the filly. I have always held her in high regard and think she is an improving sort.

On the walk back home

I nipped up to Garrowby yesterday after two lots and the place looks in fantastic order. As you know we are moving out by the end of June and all the horses and stock are being relocated back here at Dullingham. It has been a great eight years and we have thoroughly enjoyed it but I think the concentration now at base will benefit everybody. The estate has advertised the stud for lease and if anybody would like to talk to me about it, please give me a ring and I will be delighted to discuss things with you.
