Beautiful People ran respectably yesterday finishing third behind two previous winners. Having appeared in season on her last run, it was good to see her travelling and jumping well and I am sure there is a race or two in her off her handicap mark over the summer.
It was good to have a Bertie Barnes get together on Sunday at The Fox at Oddington. He ran a cracker at Kempton on his last appearance but unfortunately sustained a knee injury since. However we look forward to him coming back this season and giving the partnership some great days to look forward to.
Syndicate leader Mick Barnes was in sparkling form and it was good to get together in his local pub/office.
Everyone is very much looking forward to Adlestrop Open Day on 11th June, where among the highlights is the ever popular fun dog show at 2pm. This year’s judge is Eleanor Tomlinson – possibly better known as Demelza from Poldark.
Her father, racecourse commentator Malcolm Tomlinson for many years and we have know Eleanor since she was a wee thing.
Please do come along and support the day in aid of some great charities.
