Great racing at the weekend

We did not declare Viva Rafa for Southwell as the ground is heavy in places.  Looking forward to having runners later in the week if the weather allows.

Great racing at the weekend with Samcro and Footpad looking like Cheltenham bankers and I put a few others in my notebook as well ready for the Festival.

It appears everyone enjoyed last week’s Question of Sport and the feedback has been very good.

For the second year running, we had a golf tournament for my old school St Andrews in Leatherhead when a few of my old pupil pals play our old sports teachers in a couple of games either side of the great quiz.

Sadly our former teachers look younger and fitter than their ex-pupils and this year’s competition was won by Eric Doherty who beat last year’s winner Chris Wilson.

As you can imagine, it was quite a competitive affair and to prove the point, the St Andrews team were only one point off winning the Question of Sport quiz.

We all look forward to next year.
