Dates for your Diary for those who do not read to the bottom!

12th August – Owners Open Day 2pm followed by BBQ

9th September National Racehorse week Open Day – 10.30 – 3.00pm

So the bad news first – sadly we lost Naughty George this week due to an accident in his stable – we have no idea what he did but we did every thing we could and he went to the Equine Hospital but to no avail – he had an infected shoulder – no wound - weird.

We were not beating the infection and so he was put down. Very sad in any horse, but in such a young horse it was not good. Condolences to all of his owners.

To better things – more horses getting their time out in our fields – 5 weeks and they will be back in work- time flies over.

Highlights of the week were taking Dandycan the 2 year old owned by the boys at Castle View Racing to Newcastle for a stalls trial – the BHA tell me hardly any trainers do this – but what an opportunity to get them used to the racecourse before adding the crowds.

The stalls handlers are so good but no expertise was needed as he walked straight in ridden by Josh. He then cantered back up the track following another horse and back to the stable yard to get a shower and then wait for Mekbat to do his bit.

He did indeed do his bit and apart from depositing Cam on the track – this is our quietest horse! He ran a good race running on to be 5th and 2 lengths from 2nd – 3 from the winner – so we are getting there. Cam reported he would have benefitted from a stronger pace.

I bought another young NH horse by Telescope ( that's 3 we have now ) this week he arrives Wednesday and a pony! It was meant to be for my Grandson to learn to ride but on Day 1 he was leading the 2 year olds onto the gallops and today the Sunday Girls are going to ride him – I think he will be am important part of our world.

Today we have 4 runners at Hexham- 3 back to back races and 2 in the same race which we rarely do – Blame Rose has a tip and she has improved every run in her manner – she is in season tho so that could be a good or bad thing. Bob is a big price and I expect a clear round and maybe half way up the field as he has had a long time off and he is learning.

Wor Verge is also a big price – I think he will go well. Cousu first race for us – we know he has improvement in him but it's a small field and he has settled down since he came to us from Neil Mulholland. Racing this week

As above at Hexham

28th Carlisle – please rain for Clear Angel

29th Newcastle Mekbat in a mile 0 – 55

30th Newcastle Clear Angel if he does not go to Carlisle.

Kind regards
