"One kind word can warm three winter months."

Japanese Proverb.

It's a mild morning and thank goodness there's no fog. When listening to the forecast it sounds as if it is going to take a turn for the worst towards the weekend. It's been another very busy morning and with one or two more people in and with Lost the Moon winning yesterday afternoon, everybody is in great spirits. We have been cantering on the Cambridge Road which has just had it's winter turnover and this has made the polytrack a bit deeper. Everthing went smoothly.

We were all delighted yesterday at Chelmsford when Lost The Moon got the job done very easily. She was very unlucky on her last outing at Wolverhampton but had no trouble this time and all being well she should progress again. She is a big filly that we have given plenty of time to and I must thank the owners who have always agreed to this and been very patient. It was their first winner from their first horse and I don't have to tell you what pleasure they got out of it. She was bred at Dullingham and we have a very attractive yearling out of the mare by Harbour Watch who has just come into the yard and is for sale.

We had our AGM of the Newmarket Trainers' Federation yesterday at the Jockey Club Rooms. It was a very good turnout and there was plenty of open discussion. Our main topic was the rates which are set to rise dramatically. We are going to form a small working group which will gather all the relevant information and have a meeting with the valuation officer in the new year.

This yearling is one of our new Raceworld horses for next year. He is a cracking colt, is strong and a great mover.
