This week Patrick attended a National Trainers Federation (NTF) training course about business management. This was a valuable day with good hospitality from both hosts Kelso racecourse and NTF. The course had some insight into leadership and management within the racing industry but that can also be applied to all situations. In racing we are lucky to have the NTF as they regularly put on courses and meetings to hear thoughts and meet with trainers.

Majority of the horses are back in work now and continuing to perform at home. We are looking to make some more entries now the ground is softening. We have made some entries for Hexham at the weekend, ground dependent on whether the horses will run.
