Friday 7 March
I know there is still nearly a month to the Aintree Festival, and we have to get through the jamboree in the Cotswolds first, but the negotiations with Aintree have begun, with regards to our Club Members gaining O&T badges to see Dawn Commander run there. Things have started well, it seems as though the racecourse will be able to accommodate the numbers that I envisage attending, although they will not be able to cater for us. I will post on here, the contact details of the lady who deals with restaurant bookings when I have it, as the alternative is to book a table in one for the day. Today Stuart ploughs a lonely furrow to Sandown. Just him and San Telm on the lorry - unfortunately I am unable to attend today, which is a great shame as Sandown is in the top 3 of my favourite courses! We think the ground, track and trip will suit ST and would very much welcome a repeat performance for Josh Moore today!
