Off to Windsor today to saddle Secret Look (pictured) in the 7.45pm. He won the race last year but that was on softer ground but as there are very few other opportunities for him, we will let him take his chance. Timmy Murphy rides.
Many congratulations to owner Steven Smith with his wonderful completion of the London Marathon yesterday, in nine hours seventeen minutes. Steven was told he would never walk again following an armed robbery in France in 2011.
Apparently he’s not feeling too good this morning – but utter determination has paid off and he has raised a great deal of money Nicholls Spinal Injuries Foundation.
The Adlestrop Club are very much looking forward to visiting Steven’s Hunscote Stud in May, when hopefully we will raise a few more quid for this very worthy cause.
