Thursday 23 June
The time has arrived for the inaugural playing of our charity circket match. Tonight a Nick Brown Racing XI, made up of owners, friends and possibly one or 2 jockeys take on an Eversholt XI at Eversholt in aid of Racing Welfare. This event was the brain child of Alan Garratt (Kikos + Omaruru) and thanks to him for organising the ground and the bar! Alan only came up with the idea about 4 weeks ago, but we hope that it will become an annual event, and if all goes well tonight we can make it bigger and better next year and raise further funds for charity. For those making the trip to Eversholt the post code is MK17 9DT.Back on the horse front - E Major ran a good race yesterday, finishing up beaten 12 lengths into 7th in a competitive field. Emo is just a tad high in the handicap, but jumped the baby fences at Worcester well, and may well be schooled over fences now. He is only a pony, but it is thought he will be suited to chasing. Omaruru will return to Fences Farm today for his pre op preparations (ie a bath) and will go to the vets tomorrow ready for his op in the evening. See you all tonight - let's hope the weather is kind! The forecast looks like it is giving us a chance!
