Shocking news hit racing yesterday when it was announced that Haydock was abandoned due to the death of one of the stalls handlers.Apparently Stephen Yarborough was run over by the stalls and killed.

These stalls handlers are tough guys and unbelievably good at their job.. they deal with difficult horses who kick and rear all day and just get the job done without any fuss.… but this accident is simply awful. Thoughts for Stephens family and friends..

Plus 11 and dry when driving in. It was certainly not dry over night, 23mm of rain landed on us.

Luckily we have natural light in the yard as we have no electricity. Sometime last night it went out so the hostel and the yard are without electricity.

Things you take for normal like an early morning cuppa and the horse walker being used were not available this morning..

David Bass and Tom Bellamy were in this morning. .We worked Sunblazer and Red Spinner.

David biked to the yard… off the road for 3 months.... better than six..

David went to the circus last night.. Looking to add another string to his bow?

Paul and Elizabeth Kellar were here second lot to see Elizabeth’s horse Mon Palois.

Chris and Emily Hill were here third lot to see their KBRP horse Vinndication

Andy and Sandy Page were  here also third lot to see their KBRP horses Blazon and Kayf Storm and their Racing For Maggies horses Another Venture and Biscuit.

We don’t have any runners today but we do have one tomorrow at Stratford. Policy Breach and David Bass meet up there and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.

Understanding Engineers..

Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"

The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."

The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway."

Understanding Engineers...

To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Have a great weekend. Golf, Racing, Womens Cricket...see you Monday..
