Last Tuesday saw us heading for Wolverhampton with The Tichbourne and Miss Lillie both had been in great form all year so hopes were high for a good run from them both.
First up was The Tichbourne now owned by myself and Roger we had enlisted the services of Kevin Lundie who has been coming in to ride out for us for a few months and had recently finished 3rd on Swot he was led up by Georgie having her first time at the races who has been working weekends for us since our move to Lambourn and who had recently started Full time, The Tich didn’t disappoint and Kevin gave him a great ride kicking clear turning for home and winning well, unfortunately he was claimed after the race we were all very sad as he had been with us since a foal and we miss him greatly but we understand he has gone to a home that will care for him well.
Miss Lillie stepped up an hour later and didn’t disappoint she won nicely to give us our 2nd double of Rogers training career a trip to our local The Swan to celebrate with the staff was a must on our return.
Stonemadforspeed headed to Worcester on Wednesday with Harry on board, on leaving the ground was good which was fine but just our luck the heavens opened 40 minutes before the race and continued to fall up to the start of the race and the going was changed to soft which wasn’t ideal but he ran a cracker to finish 3rd staying on up the home straight.
a quiet few days until Tuesday when we head back to Wolverhampton with Langley Vale, a visor fitted we are hoping he can bring his home work to the track
