3rd June 2023

Plus 8 and dry when driving in.

David Bass and Ciaran Gethings were in to ride out.

England batted well at Lord's and the match will be over today. Sorry for those who bought tickets as after two full days play and huge crowds the game will be over far too early. Predicted, but not helpful if you bought tickets.

Even todays big race The Derby has been brought forward to avoid a clash of cultures . The FA Cup clash between the Man City and Man United is later, so for the first time the race will be run early to help with viewing figures.

Talking clash of cultures.. an injunction will not stop Animal Rising from trying to make fools of themselves by trying to ruin todays big race.. I hope there are no impersonations of Emily Pankhurst in amongst them... Whatever they have had a brilliant week of PR!!

Frankie won yesterday Oaks in fine style and he is rather enjoying his very fruitful retirement year and today he just could cap his year by winning the Derby on Arrest..

Kate Paddock who has been here for 6 years finishes this weekend.

Kate is a star and she has been a brilliant person to employ.. Hard working and dedicated.. Time to move on as she is getting married and her future husband is in to farming.. They are off on holiday next week to Montana…. Have a great time Kate and many thanks for all your hard workd and support...

We have one runner over the weekend and that is today at Stratford.. Shantou Express runs there an for my thoughts please click here.

In the good old days.. Today was the last day of the Jumps season .. Stratford in the afternoon and Market Rasen in the evening and then we closed for 6 weeks..I believe we will be there again in the near future.... why 3 jump meetings today!!

Three nuns were talking. The first nun said, "I was cleaning the Father's room the other day, and I found a bunch of pornographic magazines."

"What did you do?" the second nun asked.

"I threw them in the trash bin, of course."

"Well," said the second nun, "I was in the Father's room putting away laundry and found a bunch of condoms."

‘Oh my!’ Gasp the other nuns

"What did you do?" they asked.

"I poked holes in them."

The third nun faints..

No nuns will be fainting over Johnny Ruck Keene's birthday today.. perhaps at his party thought!

It is also Evelyn Nicholls birthday.. Mat organising the family BBQ to celebrate.
