Plus 16 and dry when driving in... Rain around..

I never saw a horse in Newmarket. My arrival timed with their breakfast I wonder?

The Newmarket Tattersalls sales complex is a very impressive place and I think yesterdays visit for the TBA Seminar was the first time I have been there when there has not been a sale on.

My 18 hours in Essex was fun. Warwick Newbury would out do any sales man when it comes to selling cars.. Warwick showed off his Tesla and put it through its paces.. Impressively even down the whoopee cushions seats!! Mr Musk must enjoy doing his updates for his cars....

Anyway back to the TBA Seminar. Sam Hoskins talked about leasing and I about syndication and then Peter Kerr joined us on the panel. It was interesting and I hope those there found it so too. It was apparently streamed on line..

The drive back from Newmarket was not a good one.. I had forgotten what the A14 is like around Huntingdon.. I sincerely hope it is open by the time we head there during the coming months.

Liz Humphreys and Susan Taylor where here this morning to see their KBRP horses Yeavering Belle and Pond Road

Gillian Glough was here as well to see her KBRP horse Does He Know.

A few sore heads this morning.. Not for Mat who had supper with Nick Cook (Nick is based in Cheltenham at the moment for the Cheltenham Cricket Festival.. he is umpiring).. but the rest of the team were out celebrating the birthdays of Lauren Jack and Lauren Birch

Just plain neatinformation..
