Today was a day to catch up. The past week has been like a whirlwind with so many emotions. I am still in awe of Arthur and Derek and our team behind them, including the wonderful Golf Widows, who have helped me achieve my lifetime ambition of winning the Grand National.
Arthur is the star in this, and he seems to be enjoying his new celebrity status. He will be parading at Musselburgh, Ayr and Perth racecourses to say thank you to his followers and for us to say thank you to the Scottish racecourses for providing us with the competition and ground to produce big race winners.
Meanwhile, at home, it is business as usual. Jamie Turnbull, Ciorstaidh and Jordan have been overseeing the yards and have kept the work going. It was a good work day this morning with nice efforts from Katalystic, OrionInverness, Vengeur De Guye, Voyage A New York and Pulpitarian.
There are some fabulous videos and press from last Saturday; see our FACEBOOK page for some of them. I love this phot of the Canal Turn... that's Arthur on the outside looming into the race..
