Delighted with Over Stated in the novice hurdle at Warwick today. He’s been off the course for over 700 days due to injury but jumped and travelled well before staying on to be third in the two mile novice hurdle.
Well done to Danny Hiskett who has done so much work with the horse since his recuperation. Over Stated can be a bit of a character therefore I had to go to the start to lead him in – much to the amusement of the jockeys riding. I took owner’s son, Kenn Ware with me (pictured) who has taken some embarrassing video footage.
A great team effort by ‘Team Adlestrop’ and we look forward to him progressing from here and finally fulfilling his potential.
As ever, we were well looked after by Warwick racecourse who do a great job of looking after all their customers.
Before setting off for racing, we had a good work morning with heart monitors on some of the string confirming their fitness. Now the ground is drying out in some areas, we look forward to having runners over jumps in the near future.
