Thursday 22nd October, 2020

The sun is out and there are blue skies in Adlestrop after we canter the horses after yesterday’s pleasing work morning.  Thursday is the day we weigh the horses and the scales are telling us we are not far away from the race track with quite a few of the string.

It was great to pop over to Martin Jones late morning yesterday, to join owner June Watts to see her Dylan Thomas three-year-old in action.  Former jockey Martin breaks in horses for many of the best in the game and always does a very professional job.

Having been purchased at Doncaster sales at the end of July, this attractive, athletic grey has pleased us in both his presence and his attitude and we look forward to June having much fun and success with him in the coming years.

I was contemplating going to Doncaster sales today but will instead attend Newmarket horses in training sales next week where we hope to fill a couple of orders.
