Plus 14 and dry when driving in, and no it did not rain yesterday.
Politics in racing are not for me, but I have to say I enjoyed meeting and discussing horse welfare issues yesterday.
Horse welfare and especially post racing careers or life after a horse leaves our sport is something I really do believe in. We or rather Mrs B try our hardest to find good homes when we retire our beloved horses.
It is hugely important part of our job and responsibility, well at least I feel it is.. Frankly it probably should be widely known by all involved in racing and that includes owners .. When a horses career finishes we should take responsibility to make sure that horse has a good post racing life…
As I have mentioned before all our horses are rehomed on the proviso that if there is a problem whether it be financial or health problems then that horse has to come back here for us to rehome again or make other decisions… I know not many will agree, but that is our policy..
Another fascinating first day of the fourth test at the Oval.. England looked in a strong position when bowling India out for 191..but then we lost 3 quick wickets including the worlds number one batsman Joe Root..Game on!!
Martyn and Sandra Steer-Fowler were here second lot to see their horse Trelawne.
Poor old Jonny Portman.. He had his car stolen at Bath races..
