An impressive victory for Organdi last night at Southwell. Delighted for all concerned. Given a fine ride from Danny Hiskett, she travelled and jumped well and stayed on strongly. Hopefully the handicapper will not be too harsh. She definitely preferred the better ground and we look forward to her continuing to reward her owner’s patience.
Great to have some of the Beautiful People syndicate present last night and great interviews on Sky Racing from Charlie Allan and John Inverdale. With her preferring this type of ground, we may keep her going a bit longer depending on what the handicapper does.
Following our trip to France with the Adlestrop Club some five years ago, Beautiful People and Organdi have now won two races each and hopefully there will be more to come.
We selected the mares following a trip organised by James Colling who has been an owner for twenty five years and did a wonderful job organising the visit. James is based in France and thanks to his many contacts, we look forward to returning on another trip soon in the hope of buying some more winners.
Before going to Southwell The Adlestrop Club had a very interesting visit to the National Stud in Newmarket where we saw resident stallions, Alcaim and Rajasinghe. If you are ever in the area, it is well worth a visit as the history of the Stud and the many contributions it makes to the industry is fascinating.
