Another French Foray?

Talk about the Great British Summer! Sadly, I think it is probably fair to say that we have seen the last of any meaningful sunshine with 110.5mm of rain falling at Pond House in July and a further 129mmm in August, these have been the two wettest months of the year so far.

The stable enjoyed a nice success yesterday as Epic Warrior became our twentieth winner of the campaign when bolting home in the maiden hurdle at Southwell under Kieron Edgar.  The former Irish point-to-point winner jumped and travelled well to win by fifteen lengths.  Our six year old really appreciated this test of stamina - the rain softened ground certainly seemed to sort them out.  It will be interesting to see what the bad man does to him when it is time to give him a rating, as we know testing conditions can really exaggerate a horses' superiority - with the second home rated 110, I hope he remembers that!  Anyway, our man on the course Gerry Supple was on hand to take the pictures and as you can see, he managed to get the delighted winning jockey, although the horse was another matter! I don't think Racing Post photographer Ed Whittaker will be worrying just yet!
