Lots of cantering and trotting for the string this morning, with much of the rain staying away thankfully.  It was great to welcome Annie Randolph-Dyer to see Lady Of Authority canter up the gallops.

The mare has some wonderful owners and we are very much looking forward to her running on the flat the week after next.

Yesterday afternoon it was great to visit owner/breeder Sue Welch’s farm with owner Brian Duckett.  Between us we have bred from our former winning hurdler Giovanna and she has bred some nice stock.

We are delighted that Sue has sent us a four-year-old by Arvico out of the mare Tiger Line, who won for us here at Adlestrop.  Named Avion, let’s hope he flies!
