Boom boom

Tremendous day at the Lanark point-to-point yesterday winning the first two races with Commercial Express (Kit) and Almost Blue (Jamie), Jamie then came good second in the Mens Open on Noir et Vert, the only disppointment was my "nap" Skipping Chapel who didn't really act on the fast ground and was pulled up. To top it all Jamie then won the inaugural Alex Fergusson Memorial Trophy for the leading rider at the meeting - not bad for someone who will be 46 this week and was most definitely the oldest rider as well!
Almost Blue

Delighted this morning to have been to pick up The Paddy Premium who has come here to be trained after finishing 2nd at Stratford yesterday for Mark Fleming; previously trained for him by Mark Molloy in Co Tipperary he looks in great shape and seems a lovely horse to deal with, hopefully he can give Mark (and us!) some fun over the spring and summer.
