Plus 6 and raining when driving in.

God the emotions of ownership were truly felt by John Perriss yesterday. An hour after a fabulously game front running win by Bobhopeornohope his Lots Of Luck took a crashing fall from which he did not recover… Elation to devastation..

John is one of those owners to really knows his horses as he has them at home during the summer.. Poor Milly Jeory who looked after LOL absolutely adored him as he was a gent of a horse.. LOL was running his best race for some time when he fell….

John has had the best start to any season and he loves winning at Ludlow and yesterday’s win with Bob was certainly tarnished..

Getaweapon was disappointing again and she really needs very soft winter ground. Picks Lad found the course at Ludlow too tight especially after running such a good race on debut at Chepstow.. Up in trip on a galloping course and you will see a different horse I am sure.

Wife texts husband on a cold winter morning: "Windows frozen, won't open."

Husband texts back: "Gently pour some lukewarm water over it and then gently tap edges with hammer."

Wife texts back 10 minutes later: "Computer really messed up now."

To finish birthday greetings to Laura Garrett..
