This past week we have been relatively quiet in the sense of racing but busy at home. We had our staff BBQ on Thursday night which was a great with good food and lovely to see everyone outside of the yard. We also managed to pick the right week with the heatwave and temperatures hitting highs of 27 degrees!

We’ve had great success with breaking the youngsters we bought back in May and the girls have been working hard to get them used to everything and everyone. Both ‘Luke’ and ‘Paddy’ have been up the gallops with super nanny Problema Tic. We’ve also brought all the horses back into work from their summer holidays and its good to have the yard in full swing again.

We had Callum Bewley up on Friday to ride out and school some horses ahead of Perth on Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st July. It was great to have him and we appreciate the effort he made to come all the way up. He schooled Palixandre who we hope to run for the first time at Perth for the Jackie Stephen Racing Club, as well as Highland Peak, Lovely Schtuff and Bermondsey Belle who we also hope to run at Perth.
