|Daasij (orange cap) on his way to win last time out at Newcastle|
Monday, 23 May 2011
Fierce storm here today, best part of an inch of rain this morning an now gale force winds, horses all twice up the rather soggy all-weather. Yesterday at Kelso Fleet Fox made a respectable enough racecourse debut in the bumper and will now have the summer (what summer?) to strengthen up, Lucy finished 3rd on Floreanna in the Hunter Chase and finished down the field in the Charity Race, thank you very much to everyone that donated to the Injured Jockeys Fund, such a worthy cause for anyone who enjoys racing.
Tomorrow at Hexham we run Isla Patriot in the 8pm, Peter Buchanan rides, 13 run and we hope rain will ease the good to firm ground. He steps up in trip for his handicap debut and is in great form. Daasij runs in the 9pm, Paul Gallagher rides, 9 run and he shouldn't be far away if he handles the going and track. Lucy rides Daraybad in the 6.30.
