A fabulous day. Velvet Steel (Tik) came a close second in her maiden. She had Page Fuller on board who gave her a lovely ride, even though she lost her whip on the home straight! We are so happy for her to get around as she has had such an unlucky career so far and she really deserves to have a good run. On better ground she will be awesome. She also won 'Best Turned Out' as did Jess who came fourth and gave Paddy a lovely spin.
The sun shone and there was a lovely atmosphere around the lorry afterwards. Fingers crossed now for Garthorpe tomorrow and hoping that the frost isn't too severe tonight.
