   Pain?  What pain?  Chester prepares for his flu jab

We had a nurse in the yard yesterday to administer complimentary flu jabs to any of the staff that wanted one.  Now, as you regular readers will testify, I have never been one to be frightened of a little pain(!) and so I was right at the front of the queue to have my injection.  As you can see from the picture, I toughed it out and was by far the bravest of those jabbed, although for some reason the person directly following me did looks a little apprehensive!

I thought that Woodlark Island ran yet another fine race at Exeter yesterday afternoon as he tried to follow-up Sunday's success under his 7lbs penalty.  I think it was a mixture of the weight and the longer trip on this stiff track that found him out, but nevertheless it was still a good effort and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him win again.  He was a good buy from the Newmarket Horses In Training Sale last year - he has run fifteen times since, winning four times and reaching the frame a further nine times.  Those sales start again next week and if you are interested in purchasing a horse, please feel free to give us a call in the office on 01884 840715 or dropping us a line at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Punters had their fingers burnt at Exeter yesterday when long odds-on favourite Celestial Halo fell 4 out on his chasing debut.  The second favourite, Rougham fell independently at the same fence while only about a length down (but just seemingly starting to get the worst of it with the favourite).  I wonder what Ruby Walsh and Richard Johnson said to each other...maybe something along the lines of "That was bad luck, we'll have to try again"?  Or maybe it was more along the lines of "I wonder what Paul and Philip will say?"!

Kieron_Edgar_1st_ride_Exeter_191010Kieron Edgar had his first ride under rules yesterday aboard Sarah's Boy in the amateur rider's hurdle and I thought that the young Scot did well.  Although ultimately pulled up, he looked handy as he was cajoling his mount along and I am sure he will have enjoyed the experience.
