3rd December 2015

Plus 12 and dry when driving in; we had a fair bit of rain overnight.

There are few more friendly racecourses than Ludlow and yesterday it was buzzing.

As always there was great prize money on offer and many people out to enjoy a good days racing. Yes Ludlow might be a small track but it certainly ticks most boxes.

Allez Encore again ran well to finish 3rd in the £19,000.00 mares handicap hurdle. The ground might have been a bit holding for her but she gave her GSTTKPA Charity Partnership a fun day out and some prize money was raised for the charity.

In the last the bumper Lady Of Llanarmon ran as she should have done at Aintree… LOL was tailed off on her first attempt in a bumper at Aintree and was perhaps the most embarrassing training moment for new owner/trainer relationship. When I say tailed off.. she finished 2 furlongs behind the rest of the field of runners bar one..

LOL’s breeder and part owner Bobby McAlpine was far from impressed with her run, and for that matter with his trainer when I said before the race that she would not disgrace.. she did not yesterday.. LOL was always up there yesterday and finished a good second.. yes I hate seconds but the last two have been good ones.

Virginia Johnson who co owns LOL were there yesterday with husband David to see the transformation from Aintree.

Our other runner Rhianna, owned Norman Carter who was November’s owner of the month’, ran well and will improve again when she returns to the track later in the season. Yes, two fillies that should both be winning, and both have great pedigrees.

Thursday is our easy day for the horses and I am heading to Leicester where we run Trojan Star and Mr Beatle.

I forgot to mention yesterday that we were filming the jumping and work session.. to watch the video you will have to go back a day..
