Organdi ran very respectably last night at Uttoxeter. They did not go a great pace and she pulled a bit hard. The ground was riding on the softer side of good which did not suit her, therefore she did not jump with her normal fluency. However she stayed on well from the last to be beaten by a very well handicapped winner.
We will see how she comes out of this race before deciding whether or not to give her a little break but hopefully she will continue to give the Beautiful People syndicate some excitement.
Charlie Poste announced his retirement yesterday. Charlie has ridden for us and broken in a few yearlings for us and has a thriving livery business not far from here. He will now be able to concentrate, along with his wife to be Francesca, on making a lot more money than being a jump jockey.
According to J Inverdale he will also have an excellent career in the media as he has been a very good addition to both At The Races and Radio Five Live. He has also been a member of the Phillips racing quiz team a couple of years ago and as he points out, his confidence is only just returning.
