A work morning for all and a couple of nice efforts from some of the younger horses. These include Star Of Milan, Dr Hooves, and the handicappers Green Flag, Tantamount, and Superior Command.
Derek was in to ride out, he reports that he feels fitter than ever after a spell in the gym at Jack Berry House and he was fine riding a couple of the stronger horses. He will see the doctor on Monday.
Michael and Jane Kalplan were in to see their two horses Revocation and Where's Tiger and to make plans fir tge summer at Perth. Also in were Mighty Thunder's owners, Colin and Nicola Drysdale who watched Mighty canter; he may run in a bumper this month.
I joined my father at the Berwickshire Hunt Point To Point where his two runners both won.
Hey Listen is still weak but given a considered ride by Donal he finished strongly to win by a couple of lengths.
Badger Foot, pictured, won the Novice and Veteran Riders race with Maisie having her first ride. Badger is quite an incredible horse, he has now won 13 races each time with a different jockey, both under rules and point to pointing. He has given such pleasure to the jockeys, many of whom have won their first races on him, and to my father who admires him as much as I do. A wonderful and generous horse to have in the stable.
