Delighted to welcome more horses back to Adlestrop over the last 24 hours, including Shadow Walker, Master Vintage and Iron Horse.

The two brothers, Master Vintage and Iron Horse (pictured) have summered locally with their part-breeders the Langdales and look wonderful for their break.  We look forward to them both winning chases for us this season.

Colin and Gwenda Pocock delivered Shadow Walker yesterday and all looked fantastic.  The six-year-old has always shown promise and hopefully his immaturity problems are over with and he will be able to win us some races over the coming seasons.

As Colin and Gwenda were unable to come to Barnsy’s funeral, we popped up to his grave to have a drink, before having our first pub lunch since lockdown at The Fox, Lower Oddington, where we reminisced about our extraordinary friend.
