Plus 7 and dry when driving in.
Good to see John and Penny Perriss and their horses yesterday and with the added bonus of not having to drive to Newton Abbot meant a longer lunch session. Yes you have gathered correctly Design Icon did not run last night.. Ground had gone soft and as he is a fast ground horse who was running over an extended trip of 3 miles 2 furlongs for the first time it would not have been ideal..
It has been a frustrating week as we have had to bring 5 horses in from the fields with sore feet.. wet weather is not great for horses feet..
The famous Derby Sales start today in Ireland and shamefully I am not there.. I have purchased enough horses on spec and need to sell some before adding to my portfolio! I know this sale will be strong and by this time tomorrow we will see that what I have already bought could look very good value..
Latest news is that English based trainers are from midnight last night not allowed to attend the sale unless they have spent 5 days in isolation..This is shocking for Tattersalls and also for all those English trainers who flew over yesterday..
Racing at Royal Ascot was not interrupted by the 4 climate change rebels last Saturday.. The planned demonstration by 4 members, who posed as catering staff, failed in their attempt to disrupt racing.. They glued themselves to the plastic running rails that just needed dismantling and removing with them glued to the rail.. The good news for them is that I, along with the Racing Post have talked about them, so they have proved their point!

A man joins a very exclusive nudist colony....
On his first day there, he takes off his clothes and starts to wander around. A gorgeous petite blonde walks by, and the man immediately gets an erection.
The woman notices his erection, comes over to him and says, 'Did you call for me?'
The man replies, 'No, what do you mean?'
She says, 'You must be new here. Let me explain. It's a rule here that if you get an erection, it implies you called for me.'
Smiling, she leads him to the side of the swimming pool, lies down on a towel, eagerly pulls him to her and happily lets him have his way with her.
The man continues to explore the colony's facilities.
He enters the sauna and, as he sits down, he farts...
Within minutes, a huge, hairy man lumbers out of the steam-room toward him, 'Did you call for me?' says the hairy man.
'No, what do you mean?' says the newcomer.
'You must be new,' says the hairy man, 'it's a rule that if you fart, it implies that you called for me.' The huge man easily spins him around, bends him over a bench and has his way with him.
The newcomer staggers back to the colony office, where he is greeted by the smiling, naked receptionist, 'May I help you?' she says.
The man yells, 'Here's my membership card. You can have the key back and you can keep the £500 membership fee.'
'But, Sir,' she replies, 'you've only been here for a few hours. You haven't had the chance to see all our facilities.'
The man replies, 'Listen lady, I'm 68 years old. I only get an erection once a month. I fart 35 times a day...
