A beautiful morning schooling horses over hurdles, to name a few - Lossiemouth, Glory and Fortune, Tea Clipper, Le Grande Fromage, Neville’s Cross, Dorking Boy, Lamanver Storm, Thais Toir, Sebastopol, Red Nika, Luck of the Legion and Meep Meep were all present. Some unnamed three-year-olds joined the party, they will eventually jump hurdles in public probably in the autumn of their four-year-old career. A few three-year-olds going down a different route are now popping over the fence on the schooling strip.
The hurdles below won't be getting out on the grass for a while yet.
This weather is ridiculous and frustrating for national hunt trainer and jockeys, we are all nearing wanting to think about running horses but are having to put those thoughts way back in our minds. I can’t see us getting going until the end of October unless something changes dramatically with the forecasters I follow.
Dorking Boy heads to Newton Abbot tomorrow, to read my thoughts click here.
