3rd June 2024

Plus 13 and dry when driving in.

That was as good a training performance anybody in racing has ever seen. City Of Troy bombed out in the 2000 Guineas and the racing world as a whole said that the horse had not trained on.... Saturday COT won the Derby..

Aiden O’Brien never lost faith in his horse and on his Ballydoyle press morning about 3 weeks ago he maintained his faith and told everybody that this was the best horse he had trained.. That alone was a huge fact in itself, but on Saturday City Of Troy proved that Aiden is the master…

City Of Troy bolted up and gave Aiden his 10th Derby winner.. Some feat and Aiden again told the world that COT was the best of the 10..

Epsom looked really busy on Saturday and perhaps at last the race is back to where it should be crowd wise.. Probably helped by the fact that Harry Bailey had his stag day there!!

There were huge crowds at Worcester’s first meeting.. About 10,000..and deservedly so after the winter they have endured..

Stratford was also busy although it was not a good evening for us as Jeudidee looked to be cantering when he banked the 3rd last and fell.. Ciaran Gethings broke his right collarbone as a result and now needs an operation.... Jeudidee spent Saturday and Sunday night at the vets under observation for a cut that bled.. He is coming back to Thorndale this morning...

Nick and Shan Cook called in yesterday to see their KBRS horses El Rio, Moon Rocket, Campaign Trail and Zmiinyi

Rob Burrows.. What an extroadinary man.. RIP

Monday morning.

Archie plays his first game of cricket today..Gloucester play Worcester at New Road ..Archie has been off games with a side strain for the best part of 2 months..

Has anyone on here lived long enough to buy a second bottle of Worcestershie sauce?

Of above.. I make enough Bloody Mary's to get through a bottle a month!

To finish..

Happy birthday to my best man Johnny Ruck Keene and Mat’s wife Evelyn..Mat was spotted buying a card in the garage this morning!!
