Plus 4 when waking at 4.30 to catch my Aer Lingus flight home from Punchestown

It was cold, wet, snowy at the races last night.. in fact bloody miserable at times.. Net Work Rouge, who is a top of the ground horse, hated the yielding ground and pulled up..yielding stands for a multitude of sins.. but not fast ground?

On the other hand Royal Supremo won at Sedgfield giving the yard our first winner of the new 2016/2017 season with our first runner... well done Tom Bellamy for riding him so well..

Aiden Murphy and I bought Lot 7 Glenforde at last nights Goffs Sales which took place after racing..Some horses were bloody expensive as usual.. obviously the horse we bought was incredibly good value..

Tom Bellamy was in this morning.. we jumped a few and they were.. Aunty Ann, Widow On The Run, Such A Legend, Same Ole Trix, Plan Again, Gallery Exhibition, DidntItellya, Champagne To Go, Taras Rainbow, Fizzy Dancer and Un Ace
