A quiet enough day for the horses, most had steady canters and a few jumped in the school. The results of the trach washes were not too bad although we do appear to have a head cold running through a few, all horses will be closely monitored over the next week. The fogging machine is working daily rather than weekly and we will soon have it behind us. Having said that if you saw some of them carrying on you wouldn't beleive there was anything wrong, they appear fresh and well in their work so I'm not over concerned, just frustrated. They are far from sick horses.
3 year old by Milan ex Mandysways. I think he's a very good horse and is owned by The Pudlciote Partnership. I bought him in the August sale at Tattersalls Ireland. He finds his work very easy.
Lamanver Alchemy jumped over hurdles in the school again, she will progress down onto the schooling strip next week. We will be schooling all the 3 year olds down on the strip, 3 plain fences and a ditch on Sunday morning. The fences will then be taken off and hurdles put on for Alchemy and Chase End Charlie to school next week.
I spent a few hours in the office this before helping with the topping up of the sand gallop, it is all done and ready for action again tomorrow.
Kelsey did get a run tomorrow at Chepstow. He is well, as he was before Lingfield. His run at Lingfield was too bad to be true. As i've mentioned previously on here, I don't think he liked the hustle of it all down the inside and dropped himself out. He will get some light tomorrow and we hope to see a different horse than the one we saw at Lingfield.
