Henry Kimbell who runs the GSTTKPA Charity horses was here second lot to see his two horses King Simba and Allez Encore perform up the gallops. Henry has three shares left in his partnership for sale, so please be tempted..

Steve O’Shaughnessy (Umpire) was also here to see his horse Younevercall; this is Steve’s first venture into racehorse ownership and he looks like having his first runner with his horse this weekend.

John Perriss was also here to see his last weeks Perth Winner By The Boardwalk and his other horses Dueling Banjos, Emily Gray, Molly’s A Diva and The Drinkymeister.

All enjoyed breakfast after, cooked by Kerry.

George and Cynthia Dowty were burgled last night at their home in Withington.

Their new garden storage shed which was locked, with a padlock, was broken into somewhere between the hours of 7.30 and 10.45pm tonight. George went to double lock the shed at 10.45 and found the items missing.

Padlock was cut through and smashed off the door.

Currently they are using the shed as a store whilst doing building works. Two road bikes, disc cutters, garden strimmer, drills etc… all portable had been stolen. The road bikes were under a second locking system in the shed but this lock was also cut through.

The road bikes have a high value and are red with white lettering- Specialist model (ladies bike- this bike is also labelled with Cynthia’s name) and white - Focus model (mens bike) The disc cutter is orange with yellow lettering.

George is a cycling semi pro and regularly tours Europe and races..old peoples!!
