Racing has more character than any other sport and every ounce is needed in these uncertain times.  Thanks to our great staff, all the horses at Adlestrop continue to get the best of care as we continue to exercise many of the string.

Like many yards, we have some horses that could go summer jumping and others who are due their summer holiday in the coming weeks.

Hopefully all will become clearer in time.  We continue to take all precautions but there are certainly worse places to be in lock down than Adlestrop.

Yesterday’s Luck On Sunday on Racing TV with Nick Luck and guest Cornelius Lysaght, showed the sport in a great light.  Excellent contributions from all parts of the industry made a most compelling programme.  I know many in the industry are working around the clock to help racing survive these troubled times.

Over the coming weeks we hope to bring you some insight into Adlestrop Stables as work continues as normally as possible.  Also hope to bring you updates on a few of our retired racehorses and the stories of their enjoyable retirements.
