Everyone at Adlestrop Stables are immensely saddened by the loss of Pop Mistress at Warwick on Saturday evening. Pop had always shown enormous talent having been unbeaten in both of her bumper runs.
Bred by Bob and Pauline Scott, I first saw her as yearling at their stud and from that moment on we were always keen to lease her and have her trained here in Adlestrop.
The only consolations are that throughout her life she was treated like a princess – especially by our assistant Barry who rode her every day and gave her so much love and attention. Also, thankfully she did not suffer and her ashes will return to the Scott’s stud where she will be fondly remembered.
Many thanks to all the team who cared for all her needs and to her extremely patient owners who gave her a life well lived.
Thank you all for the kind messages – they have all been much appreciated.
