There's four of us in the office most days (sometimes five) ranging from 19 to, well, a little older, but there's a good cross section of women up here. When Dale heard that the 'girls' were tied up in the office (in a meeting - get your mind out of the gutter!) he questioned, 'which girls?'. He was told none for you, they're either too old or too young, and besides, they're all taken. 'Now that's...

When mum used to say time goes "quicker as you get older" I never believed her, I mean how could it? There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, twenty four hours in a day and one hundred and sixty eight hours in a week so “how” can it possibly go any quicker. The answer is, it doesn’t but the older we get the quicker it “seems” to go and this year is fl...

by Hayley Many believe syndicates to be the way forward for racing. It is the obvious entry to ownership for many and aside from lessening the financial load, it is also a fun and sociable experience to go racing with friends and fellow lovers of the sport. We recently announced the launch of brand new syndicate 'Solo', which you can find out more about on the previous blog post, and now we are ...

As we approach the winter our annual clear out continues unabated with two year old “Heavenly Pulse” selling today at Doncaster to race in Sweden. It is important for trainers and owners to ‘clear the decks’ when necessary, and this year we have made a good start. It is unfair of trainers to let their loyal owners keep on paying for horses who you are really struggling to w...

The Royal family might be expecting a new baby in the early part of next year who will be fifth in line to "reign over us" while the heavy "rain" in America looks set to pop across the Atlantic and provide the UK with more of the wet stuff but it was the other “rein” that was under scrutiny this afternoon at Ripon racecourse when Mick Easterby asked me to take a look at his invent...

New horses, yes. New jockey, not just yet, but he's as close to a dead cert as you will get. 11 year old Jack Lander has certainly put in the miles on his road to becoming a jockey ... Watching Frankel win the 2000 Guineas in 2011, Jack caught the bug. He's also raised an incredible amount of money for the Injured Jockeys Fund, walking from Stratford racecourse to Oaksey House. This summer he emb...

"Mr Fox. Could you kindly vacate the premises and I respectively ask that you steal no more of our hens!" Too late. All the hens have vanished, leaving behind one very lonely cockerel and one very angry George. First, we had the problem of mink dragging our beautiful koi carp from the pond. Now we have foxes plucking hens from their beds in the middle of the night. The anti-hunting brigade would ...

Saturdays are for bacon sandwiches, visits from owners and watching the horses gallop - there's worse ways to spend a morning, especially when the sun is shining! Gorse ran a lovely race yesterday on only his second start, finishing a respectable fifth at Redcar and showing that he had learned a lot from his first foray. Hopefully there's more to follow from our son of Zebedee. Fellow two-yea...
