Well done to AP McCoy, winner of last nights BBC Sprts Personality Of The Year. A richly deserved accolade, for the 15 times Champion Jockey, and one that will hopefully see his achievements acknowledged outside of racings parish boundary. It was cold cold cold at Fences Farm on Saturday, but with a whole lot of hard work from the team all the horses got out and did thier usual work on the gallop before the snow arrived at lunchtime. The snow did cause one casualty - the Fences Farm Christmas bash, that had to be postponed until there is a break in the weather, a real shame as it is always a good night out! Thanks for all the messages of congratulations after Bobby Gee's fine win at Towcester, especially to Nicole, who emailed the following link to some great photos - http://www.graftonwood.co.uk/pages/picture-galleries/towcester-races/towcester-201011/towcester-16th-december-2010.php?gall_id=412 It will be very interesting to see what the handicapper does to him tomorrow! Initial plans look like a tilt at a couple of 'Nationals' during the first part of 2011 - could be fun!
