We have had the last two days at Cheltenham which were fabulous. The highlight was seeing the wonderful Altior winning the Queen Mother Chase for the second time. The crowd went mad with joy and it was such a wonderful atmosphere. 

Altior - A true champion

Although we didn't go today I watched on TV and saw Bryony Frost give Frodon a peach of a ride to win a very dramatic Arkle - She gave the most wonderful interview straight afterwards when still on the horse about how much she loved him and what a warrior he was - I then had the treat of watching Paisley Park win the Stayers hurdle - Another fairy tale as the horse is owned by a man who has been blind since birth and it has always been his dream to have a winner at Cheltenham. It was very emotional and once again the crowd went mad with joy. A very good day for jumps racing as all the horses came home safely.

Billy came in at lunchtime to school Ted and Kingsley and Lucy schooled Budge and Cloud - All schooled well and really looking forward to running them this Sunday.
