Now Sunday saw me taking a little bit of time out from the dogs. Not alot of people will know this but i'm actually quite an avid Morris Dancer. Myself and my troupe had been booked in to put on a performance in honour of her majestys Diamond Jubilee celebrations. It was great to be able to put on a performance and a good time was had by all. If anybody would like to book us for any kind of celebration , please just speak to me at the track and i'll be only too glad to fill you in on the wonderful world of morris dancing.
Back to the day job on Monday at Notts and it was great to see Salacres Achiles scoring another win. Down in grade to A4 after a brief stint in A3 and he immediately scored again. He's been in great form of late but I do think A4 is just about his level , I think his sp of 6/1 despite being a recent winner in the grade tells you that. The way he's running at the minute you couldn't rule him out scoring again soon.
Tuesdays bags meeting saw us come away with just the one winner , great to see Swift Sonchez getting another win under his belt
We had plenty of pups to get a gallop into on Tuesday afternoon once racing had finished. I couldn't have been more pleased with all of them. We had the Rebel Ring x Salacres Power litter to gallop , along with the Rebel Ring x Centurion Ginny pups. They all chased the drag hard and well which is all you can really ask. Our two Ace Hi Rumble x Lead Boots pups yet again looked very promising , i'm looking forward alot to those two hitting the track , same to with the Mineola Plan pups reared by Vincent Lund in the Scottish Highlands for us , they looked very promising indeed. There should be plenty of winners coming from this lot of pups once they hit the track so keep them all in your notebooks. We had ex Nottingham trainer Sheila Poole with us today to watch her Centurion Ginny pup being galloped. After retiring from the sport a couple of years back Sheila was looking for a nice pup to get involved with. It's always nice when an ex trainer comes to you for a runner as it shows that you must be doing something right in another professionals eyes and that's a huge compliment. Respected physio Marie Clarke has a share in one of the Salacres Power pups , I know she's very happy with hers too and I just hope that they do their owners justice.
Speak soon , thanks for reading.
