Plus 7 and dry when driving in.

I suppose 1966 is a distant memory when it comes to football and winning World Cups.

Last night in France yet another England team failed to reach any sort of World Cup final.

Women’s football is not something I would have ever watched before, but I have to admit I watched some of last nights game and it was reveting.

Sadly penalties when it comes to any England side you just know won't work, but as a game it was great to watch ..

We have another reveting game today and a sport that I do watch, and that is the all important cricket match England has to win against New Zealand to guarantee a semi final placing in the World Cup.. Yes another World Cup..

More importantly I was over at Martin Jones yesterday to see all my youngsters.

Martin and his team of daughter Sammy, Megan Harper, Claire Brown, Steph Pollard and Alex Harris really do a brilliant job on these youngsters..

Martin gives them time to mature and take to being ridden. Nothing is rushed and what I saw yesterday only filled me with excitement..

Aiden Murphy and I have been buying young horses together for some years and it is only the last 3 or 4 years that I have had the ‘balls’, if that is the right way to describe buying youngsters on spec..

I have to say that this years team of horses are by far the best looking and probably the best racing bunch of horses we have ever bought.

A great deal of time goes into buying these horses and trying to buy value is very hard, but over the last few years we have achieved that and I really do believe this years we have bought the best.

Over the last couple of years winning horses like Vindication, Prince Llywelyn, Mr Grey Sky, First Flow, Dandy Dan, Diamond Gait, Silver Kayf, Those Tiger Feet, Two For Gold, Sadlemor and others who have as yet to run have come from this policy.

The first batch of five horses that Martin has broken in and were ridden yesterday will be coming back here this weekend and then they will have a few weeks out at grass before coming into training.

These youngsters are the horses that fill those big dreams as they have never run and they have all before them.. Yes a hugely exciting team of horses.

If you would like any further info on any of these lovely horses, please ring me or email Peter Kerr on or ring him on 07901763643.. we will be selling these horses individually or into partnerships

On another note it was sad to read that Jack Sherwood has decided to retire from race riding.

Jack looked like having a great career when he started his riding career but after winners at Cheltenham it never went shows what an unbelievably tough sport this is.. I wish him all the best for what ever direction he takes.

Talking jockeys.. David Bass was back in riding out this morning..He too is full of ecitement for the winter ahead..

Andy and Sandy Page and John and Laura Garrett were here mid morning to see their horses.
