Wednesday 28 September
I am just a tad confused - On Friday I made a bid on behalf of clients for a very nice horse that I had seen. He was beaten on the day, but we loved the look of him, and thought we could see where to go with him. He was (and still is) advertised at just over our budget, but we made an offer anyway. Yesterday the horse was dropped 4lbs by the handicapper, which led me to think that we would be in with a great chance of doing a deal - so you can imagine my surprise when on enquiring, I found out that the asking price had actually been raised by £10K !!! Anyway the search continues, and this evening Stuart and I will be heading north to see a few potential types - at least having a deal should not be so difficult! Grey Bobby leaves today, and we wish him and his new connections the best of luck with him. Kikos was dropped 2 lbs in this weeks amendments, so with a bit more help we should be competitive again!
