Uttoxeter was empty yesterday..

Busy here this morning

Third lot we saw David and Shantha Shuttle here to see their KBRP horse Does He Know.

John and Laura Garrett where here to see their KBRP horses Chazza, Gerard Mentor, The Bull Mccabe, Red River, Commodore Barry, Adjourned, Lord Apparelli and their Racing For Maggies horse Another Venture

Paul Martin was here to see his KBRP horses Donnie Brasco and Galante De Romay.

Peter and Lois Burke were here to see their KBRP horse Yeavering Belle.

 We have two runers today. Diamond Gait heads to Newton Abbot while Blazon heads to Beverely. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.
