A very busy time for Adlestrop stables.  Delighted to have come home with two lovely two-year-olds from the Breeze Up sales last week – a Havana Gold filly and a Canford Cliffs filly.  Looking forward to having some two-year-old winners this season.

Beautiful People appeared to be in season when she ran at Uttoxeter on Saturday as she was never travelling during the race like she normally does.  Hopefully we can find a suitable race for her when she is out of her cycle.

The Adlestrop Club had a very enjoyable day visiting Hunscote Stud yesterday.  Around 25 members of the Club had an excellent guided tour of the farm, near Wellesbourne – viewing the mares, foals and yearlings.

Owner Steven Smith has progressed the stud in a very short time and we look forward to following their fortunes over the coming seasons.  We were delighted to have a collection for the Nichols Spinal Injury Foundation – Steven’s chosen charity for his remarkable walk of the London Marathon in nine hours seventeen minutes.  Not bad for a man who was told he would never walk again.
