a golden morning, sun beating down, crops turning, it looks like late August for a change, ground completely sodden though after a wet end to the week.  Luckily Donegal escaped the rain and we enjoyed three special days on the golf courses of Rosapenna, a nice horse to see on the way home and a productive morning on the gallops yesterday, horses coming together nicely and the first batch of winter horses will have start more serious work this week.

Now that my face is back to normal I am allowed to resume Mrs A’s position with iPad  and tea

Soft ground at Perth yesterday so we kept our powder dry in the hope that things will dry up for Tuesday but an exciting winner for Lucy in the bumper on Mister Pagan, hopefully energized her for the long drive to Southwell today where she rides Prideus in the 2pm.

Back here easy day with horses on the walker, in the paddock and Tuesday’s intended runners enjoying a quiet spin on the grass. A lot on this week but weighing up the idea of a pilgrimage to York on Wednesday to see Frankel, irresistible I fear.

Perth aftermath, a huge crowd enjoyed glorious weather and excellent competitive racing, will be a challenge having it all spic and span for gates opening on Tuesday!
