Plus 9 and dry when driving in..

Looks like we have had the last of the rain for a while.. so needed..and more needed too..

David Bass was in this morning..

Racing Welfare CEO Dawn Goodfellow and Director Simone Sear called in for a cup of coffee and a chat….

Constitution Hill's dam sold yesterday for £340,000... Goffs held an online auction of one horse.. Many fingers on the buttons?

Talking selling.. I have a friend who has two 7 week old cocker spaniel puppies for sale.. One boy and one bitch.. If you fancy finding out more about these adorable puppies please ring 07770690095..

Are any of you going to any Royal Ascot preview evenings?.. three weeks before the Cheltenham Festival Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls would have already done a few..But I have seen nothing advertised, although I probably have not looked too hard..

Perhaps Flat racing is that far apart from jump racing with its core support.

Jump racing has an obsessive loyal support, whereas flat racing probably does not?

As one trainer said 'Flat racing horses are run to breed... while jump racing horses are bred to run?

Mentioning racing.. Not something many papers do nowadays.. The Daily Telegraph, which I read, has now stopped displaying full raceccards, if there are too many meetings to fit on a half page..Yesterday 3 of the 5 meetings failed to appear.. Sadly a sign of the Times... Well I have not looked in that paper, but I assume it has probably gone already!

We have one runner tonight at Warwick..

Voyburg heads there for the amateur riders hurdle race and Lauren Keen Hawkins, who won at Cheltenham on Dandy Dan, has her first ride for me and her first over hurdles.. two firsts, and there is a third, as she is the first lady (jockey) rider to work for me too.. good luck all round and for my thoughts please click here.

Today is one of those days that only comes around once a year.. a bit like Christmas, but this is one not so memorable.

But it does make me realise how the world we live in has changed..
