Plus 15 and damp when driving in.

Thursday during the winter season is our easy day; not today.

All the horses are now cantering and there is no stopping them as they need to get fit and ready for September/October depending on their ground requirements.

John and Penny Perriss called in third lot to see their horses.

John’s Azure Aware, By The Boardwalk, Dueling Banjos, Emily Gray, Molly’s A Diva and Thedrinkymiester  and Penny’s Queer Times, Widow On The Run and The Scarlett Woman all cantered.

Late morning John Morris was here.

John is an annual visitor who pops along to discuss my horses for the season and then writes his book Jumping Prospects .

John is pretty demanding when it comes to his facts.. and well informed..

Kerry Bellamy and I  are coming towards the end of writing the Owners Open Day brochure; I dictate while Kerry types. I feel like a head master of a school writing school reports on 60 odd children..

Sam Morshead has officially retired from his role as General Manager of Perth Racecourse due to health reasons. I am hoping to see Sam next week.

Trent Bridge is the place to be today and for the next 4 days.. The Fourth Ashes test starts today.. Gripping stuff.

What we don't want is to see any of this naughty behaviour..

This is an article to make you realise where it is all going wrong.. racing should also take note..

Interesting advice from a doctor..

This man did not understand why his wife was angry on a daily basis.

What could be possibly going on with her that makes her so emotional?

The doctor knew exactly what was up, and solved his and his wife’s problem.

We think you will learn something from reading this.

A man goes to the Doctor, worried about his wife’s temper.

The Doctor asks: "What’s the problem?

The man says: "Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every day my wife seems to lose her temper for no reason. It scares me."

The Doctor says: I have a cure for that...

When it seems that your wife is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until she either leaves the room or calms down.

Two weeks later the man comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.

The man says: "Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my wife started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and she calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?"

The Doctor says: "The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick".
