A day of cantering at Adlestrop today.  We have made some entries for next week at Uttoxeter and Wolverhampton.

It was great to welcome Colin and Gwenda Pocock with their dog Jenson to the yard this morning.  They came to see their new purchase from Doncaster Sales, a three-year-old son of Stowaway who we are all very pleased with (pictured).  Jenson also came to collect his prize having won last season’s Five to Follow Competition.  He kindly took us all out for lunch at the Wild Rabbit with his winnings.


Last night I was kindly invited by Irish Thoroughbred Marketing to a get together for local trainers in anticipation of our presence at the store sales in Ireland this summer.  Fellow trainers Charlie Longsdon, Fergal O’Brien and Martin Keighley along with Nigel Twiston Davies’ golf professional, Carl Llewellyn enjoyed supper in the Old Stocks at Stow.  We all look forward to not bidding on each other’s horses at the sales this summer.
