A rainy morning in Adlestrop and elsewhere.  Delighted to welcome apprentice jockey Georgia Dobie to the yard to ride a couple of bits of work.  Georgie is apprentice to Eve Johnson-Houghton and rode Lady Of Authority to win for us recently.  Hopefully she will ride more winners for us in the future.

Sad to report that one of our old favourites Central Committee, has passed away.  He had a wonderful retirement at Bob & Pauline Scott’s stud and for many years lived in horsey luxury with his legendary mate Noble Lord.  They both had wonderful retirements thanks to the Scotts and deservedly so as both were great warriors.

Noble Lord passed away last year and both horses were well into their twenties.  Central was particularly tough and won and was placed on many occasions, despite not having the best of wind.  He will remembered very fondly by all that knew him.

Thankfully the weather looks better for Sunday when the yard will be open along with many other attractions for Adlestrop Village Open Day.  Do hope you can make it.
