More Ladies

Another great day's racing at Ascot yesterday and another Ladies Day today at Musselburgh where Lucy rides Oddsmaker for Maurice Barnes in the 5.40.  Exhilarating stuff yesterday, how extraordinary to name a horse Fame and Glory and end up winning the Ascot Gold Cup (not to forget another few Group Ones on the way) and a wonderfully emotional interview with Michael Owen after his winner in the last, watch it here if you missed it.  Lots of whip bans in the big races this week, going to become increasingly topical
So McIlroy has a 4 shot lead in the US Open, if he's still in that position on Sunday night who will be able to bear to watch after what happened in Augusta - not me but let's hope that experience hasn't left any scars.
Quiet here now with only Amulree being ridden & the two year olds, a few on the walker and resting. Disinfecting & repainting of all the boxes is on schedule and should be complete by the end of next week; as for Frank, only one winner yesterday thanks to chaged ground, pressure's on.....
