Plus 10 and drizzling when driving in.

Jockeys David Bass and Tom Bellamy were in this morning. We worked Champion Chase and Cresswell Legend.

George Dowty (local celeb?) was here first lot to see his Racing For Maggie’s Charity horses Another Venture and Biscuit.

I know I have mentioned this before but we are supporting Maggie’s the local Cancer Care Home by racing two horses for two seasons.

For £6295 you too can become involved. There are no extra costs during the period that you own the two horses.

Alternatively you can put a deposit down of £2995.00 plus £189.00 per 19 monthly payments on a direct debit.

A man asks a farmer near a field, “Sorry sir, would you mind if I crossed your field instead of going around it? You see, I have to catch the 4:23 train.”

The farmer says, “Sure, go right ahead. And if my bull sees you, you’ll even catch the 4:11 one.”..
