Plus 4 and dry when waking in Coldstream.

Two fabulous days at Perth were rewarded with two winners. West End came good yesterday making the day even more emotionally charged than it already was.

Well done to Dan Hall, West End's his owner, and well done to Tom Bellamy whose first trip to Perth was certainly a memorable one having ridden By The Boardwalk to win the previous day. Thank you Dennis Penny for the photos.

West End is for sale at £10,000.00 if you fancy owning him.. please ring if interested..He would make a great point to pointer and also has a future under rules.. there are more races to be won with him

I mentioned emotionally charged.. it was Sam Morshead's leaving day. 27 years at the helm of Perth came to an end yesterday and his speech left most of us in tears.. Sam has transformed Perth.. Loyal Staff and a very supportive Chairman..Goodbyes are never easy and in Sam's case it was even harder.. top man and thank you.

The lunch break meant a charity walk with Richard Farquhar and his charity Walking The Courses.. A great cause and £50 was raised half way round when Irish trainer Gordon Elliot was asked to jump a hurdle.. he fell..should have been double?

Racing has a way of supporting and helping as Ed Cookson has found out..

Ed Cookson earlier this year took the decision to retire from race riding and with the help of JETS he starts his one year Intensive Farming Course at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester.  JETS have done a case study on Ed which can be found here. Yes we are good at helping.

We have three runners at Worcester today and David Bass rides all three.. For my thoughts on their chances please click here..


This email arrived yesterday

Dear Miss Bailey,

You ask for comment on your new website, and so herewith my considered opinion. Quite frankly, I am bitterly disappointed. I recall that you were elected "Miss Wet T Shirt, Salt Lake City" in 1997. And I find it utterly bemusing that there are no photographs of this event anywhere on your website.

Perhaps all those memorable photographs are hidden away on your "Subscription pages." Sadly, I cannot justify the expense, as I am a member of too many online sites already. Some of which have photos of you in 1997 on them.

Please explain the "5 to Follow." Who do I follow, and for how long ? Please send the names of the people whom I am expected to follow. Do they follow me back ? Do they come to stay for a while ? Do I have to pay ? Are they pretty ?

And please explain what a share in a KBRTZZZKLM horse means ?

I find the whole thing very confusing, and look forward very much to the 1997 photograph gallery being added soon.

Yours very sincerely, 

Cyrus B Seconditis VI, Wyoming.
