Stuart, Amy and Clemmie Durham came to the gallops yesterday to watch the horses in action. They have been great supporters of the yard and at present are in the Goodwood Owners Drinks Session syndicate who have Pop Mistress.
Normally regular visitors to the Cotswolds, this was their first trip for a while because of the pandemic. Daughter Clemency is a great lover of horses and it was wonderful to see her engage with them.
Many of the horses continue to up their exercise and looking forward to doing some faster work throughout September. Visitors have been commenting on how well the string look.
Good to see the BHA and Southwell racecourse acting quickly following some sad fatalities at the track recently. The sport has done well to concentrate on decreasing the number of fatal injuries on racecourses to 0.19% in 2019. Racing continues to do all it can to keep these numbers as low as possible and the industry should be proud of all the efforts it makes to do so.
