0 degrees and dry when driving in.

Huntingdon yesterday was pretty busy. Good racing and interesting runners.

El Presente was third which was slightly disappointing, but as we were slightly surprised he won first time then third with a penalty and with good horses in front might not look too bad in a few months time. Billy Elliott on the other hand needs time, so will be going home to grow and mature.

Monday morning and we worked Involve and Charbel.

Jackie Harris was here for a first visit to Thorndale.

We have one runner today at Plumpton which is not a course I have many runners at. Anyway Ben Arthur runs there and for my thoughts please click here.

Some statistics..

Last year 22 people were killed whilst taking selfies.. extraordinary considering how seemingly harmless an activity!

Imagine two columns and putting those 22 into the right column.

Also, last year there were 10 deaths by shark attack. Put those 10 people into the left hand column.

Now even more surprising is that 6 of those people can be found in both columns.
