|Little Glenshee at Carlisle|
Tuesday, 22 March 2011
Back to routine work here today with most of the horses working on the all-weather this morning, Minimo & Commercial Express schooled over fences and then this afternoon Peter Buchanan came in and we schooled "Alf" over poles then Little Glenshee, Papamoa, Four Fiddlers and Forcefield over hurdles - all went well. Stuart Mactaggart from Doncaster Bloodstock Sales visited this afternoon to assess our young store horses and selected a few for their premium Spring Sale, I would prefer to keep them here! Isla Patriot ran well enough yesterday, I was pleased with him as he seems to be progressing, unfortunately Playing Footsie was badly hampered at the start and was unable to regain contact with the field so the exercise was a waste of time though at least she has now seen a racecourse and has a better idea of what is involved. This week we have Native Coll and Amulree in at Carlisle on Thursday and five entered for the point-to-point on Saturday at Lanark, as ever, weather etc will decide who goes where...
