Our Life in Pictures
Tuesday 12th April
LOVE POEMS was our most recent runner, finishing a bold second at Chelmsford at the end of last month. She was out-gunned by the front-running tactics of the winner but acquitted herself admirably in a reasonably valuable contest. She has two further entries for the Easter weekend and both are over 2 miles. The first is at Chelmsford on Friday, the second at Southwell on Sunday.
Meanwhile work continues with the string and the 2 year olds are making good progress. Two of the four 'babies' are now named. The fillies by Belardo ex Itsinthestars and Profitable ex Harmonic Note are called ASTRONOMICA and PAY SCALE respectively. The gelding by Mukhadram ex Qualification and the filly by Havana Grey ex Khaki await naming although the former is known as 'Patrick' as he was foaled on March 17th. The filly is from the first crop of the stallion, himself very fast and very precocious. It was encouraging to see him have his first 2 year old winner - a filly. Our Havana Grey is pictured above along with 'Patrick' as he exits the barn on the first day he was ridden in a normal exercise bridle instead of breaking tack. They are both March-foaled 2 year olds but one is clearly 'little' and the other 'large' despite only 11 days different in age.
