A morning of stalls practice for the two-year-olds and steady cantering in the sunshine here at Adlestrop.  More painting, topping and strimming in preparation for the horses coming back in in the next week or so.

It is ‘Stable Staff’ week, an excellent initiative that promotes the wonderful job racing and stud staff do.  If the trainer is the headmaster then the stable staff are the teachers who get the children through their exams and solve many of the problems that the training of young athletes creates.

There have been many initiatives this week to promote present and future staff. As for Adlestrop, some are still on their holidays and as their boss would tell them, every week is stable staff week at Adlestrop Stables.
