So, a restorative week relaxing high in the Umbrian hills, a different pace of life, a lovely family week and now back at my desk suitably revitalised. Plenty to catch up with so no trip to Perth this afternoon where they look to have attracted a huge crowd to enjoy the summer weather and good competitive racing.

Northern Acres

Northern Acres – starts cantering tomorrow with the hope being to be ready to run at one of the new fixtures we have in the North in September

Renovations almost finished and plenty of horses in now, about 30, and planning to ride 20 this week, really looking forward to getting stuck in again and will take plenty of time to look round them all quietly this afternoon.  No runners imminent, next Perth meeting at the earliest, but Lucy hopefully back on the go this week with a ride at Beverley on Tuesday, Snow Dancer in the 5.30.
