Big day yesterday for Family Alexander as the youngest headed off to boarding school for the first time, it brought to an end what has been a very happy summer despite the weather and Mr & Mrs A were a bit choked up as they headed down the drive, big deep breath and all seemed to go smoothly once we arrived.  Busy again today and the gallops and horses were in fine fettle on an atmospheric autumn morning, pictures of some of the horses that were out on the riverbank below.  Tomorrow at Sedgefield Lucy rides Floreana for the Boswells in the 4.50 in what looks like an ordinary contest and then Pete in the 5.20 for Barry Murtagh.
