Cold again today, horses having a couple of spins up the all weather before some more serious work tomorrow, hoping to run four at the West Percy p2p on Sunday- Northern Flame, Native Coll, Amulree and Flaming Thistle, all due to be ridden by Kit. Mrs A and I are speeding up the East Coast mainline after a productive day in London yesterday, will be joined by Kit in Newcastle by which time we will have sped past Catterick where Lucy is riding Stanley Bridge in the 12.30 and Sam Lord in the 2.40. She then heads back South to ride at Ascot tomorrow, The Holinwell in the 3.45 (on Ch 4) and another in the 4.15, she is then due at Market Rasen on Sunday to ride Jaws in the 2pm, and probably Wetherby on Monday, hopefully eventually returning home on Monday night by which time she will have been nomadic for a week. Main excitement of course is going to be Mrs A being reunited with her little Joey, missing since trainer stopped to listen to that owl late on 31st Dec 2011, seems like an age ago!
