Plus 14 and dry when driving in.

I can fall asleep in a James Bond movie but there as no chance of that happening while watching Emma Raducanu play and win the US Open on Saturday night.

What an extraordinary match and what an extraordinary lady. Her post match interview was humbling and brilliant..

Thankfully Channel 4 came to the rescue as they showed the match live, what was a huge relief to those who do not have amazon. It beggars belief that BBC did not cough up and show it.. The British Broadcaster failed dismally, as they do with all sports..

9 million people watched the match live on Channel 4 alone

Yesterdays Owners Open day was a huge success. Yet again the new format went down well..

The yard was busy in the morning and the lunch was excellent at The Frogmill..

Cornelius Lysaght was again our guest speaker and then David Bass rounded off the speeches, if you could call it that..

Magician Robert Fox went round the tables during lunch.. Forecasting the winners?

Monday morning and many visitors here this morning..

Robert and Nicola Baillie, Maark and Rachel Burt, John Benson, Gary Penrose, Richard and Sheila Mordan, Lasse and Anne Dalgaard were all here second lot to see their respective KBRS horses Vinndication, Tantoli, Par d’Amour, Galante De Romay, Phanton Getaway, Starvoski and Magical Escape

Julie Martin and Dan Hall were here late morning to see Ajero and Peaked Too Soon.

Most of the above all stayed overnight at The Frogmill..

A big thank you to Nigel Kikby for the photos from yesterday.. He will be posting a web link later this week of all his photos from yesterday.

Andy Stewart died over the weekend..I bought Cenkos for him, although he only ran once for me at Newbury before he decided to move him to Oliver Sherwood and then from there to Paul Nicholls..

Andy put a great deal of money into racing and was rewarded with a huge amount of success.. Racing will miss him..

Happy birthday to Lucy Sherwood..
