Plus 11 and dry when driving in.

The last Bank Holiday of the year.

David Bass and Ciaran Gethings were in to ride out as were Alicia Perking and Jonathan Rees.

Mr and Mrs Russell Bierschbach sadly had to cancel their morning on the gallops and Breakfast as booked through The Queens Hotel in Cheltenham...

Garry and Tracy Betley were here to see their KBRS horse Phantom Getaway.

John and Penny Perriss were here late morning with Mick, Sam and Matilda to see their horses. John's Bobhopeornohope, I Got Stung, I Spy A Diva, Lady of The Night and Von Hallers and Penny's Hurlerontheditch

A huge thank you to Guy Rooker who emailed to warn us that the Tour Of Britan is passing our door (Stage 7) at the same time as we have the yard open for the National Racehorse Week..

Guy you have no idea how helpful that bit of information was as we knew nothing about our local roads being closed.. We have now moved our open day back one hour to 1pm to 3pm.. Please note!!

Spare a thought for Norman Carter..

Norman's flat horse Astro King runs in the last at York today and has a great chance..

York is Norman's favourite racecourse but sadly Norman will not be there as he is currently incarcerated in my least 'favourite hotel' the Royal Gloucester Hospital with 6 broken ribs.. back and front!. Norman you will find that the food might not be up to Zoe's standard, but the service and care is brilliant.

A shocker perhaps, but from a recent source...

Two men are in the doctor’s waiting room. They know each other, so they are allowed to talk to each other.

“What are you here for?” Asks Fred.

“I’ve got a red ring around my todger.” Says Bert.

“What a coincidence.” Says Fred. “I’ve got a green ring around mine.”

Bert gets called into see the doctor. Five minutes later he comes out and says “Well, that was OK. I’ve just got to wash it with soap and water.”

Fred, relieved, strolls in to see the doctor, explains the problem and whips his todger out for inspection.

“I’m sorry. Says the doc. “We’re going to have to amputate.”

“What!” Says Fred. “But Bert just had to wash his!”

“Ah.” Says the doc. “There’s a big difference between lipstick and gangrene”.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday..
