Plus 16 and dry when driving in.

God it was hot at Royal Ascot yesterday. Uncomfortable and the racecourse was very busy. It will be probably worse today on the longest day of the year?

Great racing and loads of people seen..Peter Kerr did an admirable job of delivering me home last night..

This morning we worked Sunblazer, Policy Breach and Sonneofpresenting. Gallop camera sadly will be fixed..

We had to bring a couple of horses in from the fields yesterday as the flies were not doing them any good. This morning one came in with a sore foot.. There is no peace when the horses are out at grass.

A retired older couple returned to a Mercedes dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they were interested in to a beautiful, leggy, busty blonde in a mini skirt and a halter top.  

The old man was visibly upset.

He spoke to the salesman sharply. "Young man, I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $55,000 asking price," said the older man. "Yet I just heard you closed the deal for $45,000 to the lovely young lady there." "And if I remember right, you had insisted there was no way you could discount this model." 

The salesman took a deep breath, cleared his throat and reached for a large glass of water. "Well, what can I tell you?  She had the cash ready, didn't need any financing help, and, Sir, just look at her, how could I resist?", replied the  grinning salesman sheepishly.

Just then the young woman approached the senior couple and gave the car keys to the old man..  "There you go," she said. "I told you I could get that idiot to lower the price...."  "See you later, Dad, Happy Father's day"
