The rain continues in Adlestrop but it’s a good opportunity to do some schooling with some of the youngsters including Lady Of Authority and Run Rosie Run.  Both have a great aptitude for jumping. Lady Of Authority (pictured) is an absolute natural and we look forward to syndicating her in the near future.

Still working on which stallion to select in the leading stallion competition for Royal Ascot.  Top bloodstock agent Geoffrey Howson kindly organises the competition at the leading meetings on the flat and over jumps.  I’m yet to win it but have had some near misses and it’s always a fascinating competition.

On the front page of today’s Racing Post is the King of all stallions – Galileo, who has a three winner handicap in the competition.  His influence is remarkable and he will be a very hard horse for Coolmore to replace.
