Thursday 5th December

A morning of many visitors, including owners Stuart and Amy Durham, David Hall, Fiona Stout and daughter Charka and inevitably Michael Barnes esq.

Charka is my God Daughter and came to collect her winnings from her Christmas present, which was a bet on Thistlecrack in the King George.   All my God children get a free bet in the race and Charka has won it two out of the last three years.

It was also great to welcome Lewis and Jake who were taking more photos and video for our new website.  Pleased to report the horses are getting quite used to drones and the like!

Last night I was privileged to be invited to White Hart Lane as a guest of Mick and Janice Mariscotti – fellow Tottenham fans.  A memorable evening with a two nil victory over Chelsea and you certainly can’t beat the atmosphere created by live sport.
