A beautiful work morning with Ian Popham and Danny Hiskett both in to ride work. It was great to welcome owners Jeff McCarthy and Mike Barrett to the gallops. The summer coats are coming through despite the cold nights and the string appear in good nick.
Late morning, I had my bi-annual visit from Jenny Trier and Susie Collins who have both been great supporters of the yard for many years. It was great to go around the yard with lots of carrot, following a hard morning of work for many of the string.
We then went off to Batsford Stud to view some foals, including those out of former Adlestrop inmates Call Me Emma and Tiger Line, whose Kayf Tara and Telescope offspring are very nice.
