Monday 14th September, 2020
A beautiful September morning, as the horses exercise in the sunshine. Hoping to have some entries towards the end of the month. A wonderful weekend of racing, especially for the O’Brien family with victories all over Europe with amongst others Magical, Anthony Van Dyck, Mogul, Thunder Moon, Shale and a Classic victory in the St Leger with Galileo Chrome. What a remarkable family they are.
Delighted for Tom Marquand on winning his first Classic. A Winchcombe boy, he has always looked a potential champion and looks to have a long, successful career ahead of him in the saddle.
Off to the sales at Doncaster tomorrow in the hope of adding to the string. With many of Trevor Hemmings and Gigginstown horses up for sale, it could be an interesting and expensive day.
