Plus 2 and raining when driving in.
9 mm of water/snow overnight.. In fact a pretty miserable start to the day!
David Bass called in to ride out a couple of lots on his way to Warwick. Actually he would have been here anyway.. Ciaran Gethings was only in for one lot and then drove off to Market Rasen where he rides in the second race..
Chester Williams also in to ride out..
All this driving.. Trainers, jockeys and horses travel around the country and from my own experience we are certainly not alone on the roads as they seem really very busy indeed.
We worked very few this morning.
Saturday morning owner videos after the horses have been out, although some received some last night.. Trying to change the pattern and content is not the easiest, but important as their owners enjoy seeing their horses videos… especially when they cannot come here to see them.
Saturday and no runners.. actually we have no runners all weekend. Sadly not a time for a good old fashioned Sunday lunch party!.. Do you remember those?
Tomorrow in your bored state you could always watch the Alan Titchmarsh programme on ITV Love Your Weekend..Thorndale features for about 5 minutes sometime during the programme..Ebony and Sean feature..
Cricket..Joe Root and double century..

Three engineering students were gathered together discussing who must have designed the human body.
One said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints."
Another said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections."
The last one said, "No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"
An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do ANYTHING you want."
Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.
Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"
The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."
