We had our open day yesterday and the sun shone on us - Lots of lovely people who all seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves as they were reluctant to go home! The horses looked amazing and totally down to Lucy Burton with the help of her Mum, Jane. Claire and Ben were also a huge help.
|Babbiloora - Velvet Dove's 6 year old filly by Pasternak. She was second last time out and we have high hopes for her this season|
|Glory Hunter - An Intermediate horse. Novice ridden and unlucky not to have won more races|
|Velvet Cloud - Tiny but a heart of a lion. Will be kept for novice rider.|
|Top Garry. Five year old. He won his maiden first time out and is set for a great season.|
|Don't Budge Me - leased by Clare Angus and is going to give her the first win!|
|Ted Thistle He came second in a hot Irish point to point. Huge potential. |
|The wonderfully genuine We Never Give Up - She is being leased by Lucy Burton for her first ride|
|Unnamed (and for sale!) 4 year old by Midnight Legend out of Velvet Dove|
|Unnamed 3 year old by Pasternak out of Velvet Dove|
AND NOW FOR THE PAST CHAMPIONS …….THEY COULD TEACH THESE YOUNG 'UNS A THING OR TWO!
|The incredible Popaway - 20 wins including three at Cheltenham|
|The infamous Doctor Kingsley - 17 wins including three at Cheltenham|
|Popaway and Doctor Kingsley - 37 wins between them including six at Cheltenham,|
|The very knowledgeable crowd.. Looking forward to their beef roll and 'refreshments'....|
