Plus 6 and dry when driving in.. autumn is here and it rained last night.

Thorndale Farm is green and the weather has changed.. did we really have that hot a summer?

Nick And Ben Sutton, David Bass and Tom Bellamy were in this morning for a couple of lots. We worked Charbel, Younevercall, Minella Warrior and Cresswell Legend.

John Benson fresh from yesterdays golf was here second lot to see his KBRP horses Arthurs Sixpence and Vinndication.

Darren Smith organised a superb golf day in aid of the Injured Jockeys Fund yesterday at his golf course The Gloucester Golf Club.

There was a good turn out from jockeys and the odd trainer. Bandits I am sure won the day, but I wont go there as I don’t play.

David Bass was there yesterday, but not a player, but as a buggy driver .. not sure why but at least he was there. Norman Carter, Geri Worcester and Peter Kerr were also there supporting, but not playing.

Dinner and prize giving after the game. John Francome funny as always and an excellent supper and decent wine.. English wine from Three Choirs.. yes all in all a brilliant night.

Darren organised the whole day brilliantly and for all his hard work he was rewarded with nearly £7000 heading to the charity..

Darren who is a share holder in the KBRP horses Arthurs Sixpence, Dusty Pearl and Vinndicaton did manage to get one of his horses name into the evenings entertainment.

These golf days, like our open day, take a huge amount of organisation and it was good to see so many support Darren and his team.. Yes.. well done...

At York yesterday Stradivarius won and collected the £million bonus.. but only just..

No this did not happen yesterday..

Two old friends were just about to tee off at the first hole of their local golf course when a guy carrying a golf bag called out to them,

"Do you mind if I join you? My partner didn't show up."

"Sure," they said, "You're welcome."

So they started playing and enjoyed the game and the company of the newcomer.

Part way around the course, one of the friends asked the newcomer, "What do you do for a living?"

"I'm an assassin, a hit man," was the reply.

"You're joking!" was the response.

"No, I'm not," he said, reaching into his golf bag, and pulling out a beautiful Martini sniper's rifle with a large telescopic sight.

"Here are my tools."

"That's a beautiful telescopic sight," said the other friend,  "Can I take a look? I think I might be able to see my house from here."

So he picked up the rifle and looked through the sight in the direction of his house.

"Yeah, I can see my house all right. This sight is fantastic. I can see right in the window."

"Wow, I can see my wife in the bedroom. Ha Ha, I can see she's naked!!  Wait a minute, that's my neighbor in there with her..... He's naked, too!!!"

He turned to the hit man, "How much do you charge for a hit?"

"I'll do a flat rate, for you, one thousand dollars every time I pull the trigger."

"Can you do two for me now?"

"Sure, what do you want?"

"First, shoot my wife, she's always been mouthy, so shoot her in the mouth."

"Then the neighbor, he's a friend of mine, so just shoot his dick off to teach him a lesson."

The hit man took the rifle and took aim, standing perfectly still for a few minutes.

"Are you going to do it or not?" said the friend impatiently.

"Just be patient," said the hit man calmly, "I think I can save you a grand here..."
