Just SO sad about Many Clouds at Cheltenham..He literally ran his heart out. Brave and courageous to the last. Huge sympathies to all his connections.
Thorpe looks good to go with all four horses as the going has been given out as good to soft. Fingers crossed they all come home safely.
Pauline has been race riding her own horses in point to points for 15 years and is now training with Doug. Pauline has recently got her trainers permit. They are both passionate about National Hunt racing and achieving maximum potential from their horses in the best possible way. This is why ‘Equine Fitness’ is a very exciting new business for them.
In 2006 Doug eventually plucked up the courage (it only took 7 years!) to propose to Pauline whilst they were on holiday in the Maldives and they married in the Lake District in June 2007.
