Winning Celebration.

One of Clonusker Lady's owners, Samantha Haughton, was visiting to see her horse today and she very kindly brought some fizz, smoked salmon on home baked bread and cakes to celebrate Hab Sab's recent win.  It all went down very well with the staff and one other Clonusker Lady owner who was there.  Thank you Samantha.

Repeat Performance.

Hab Sab continued where he left off when Covid ended racing in the spring by winning a 2 and a half mile handicap chase at Plumpton today. Jockey Dave Crosse employed the same tactics as before by taking Hab Sab to the front at the first fence and making all.  He was helped by Hab Sab's bold, but clever when needed, jumping and they looked to have the race in the bag turning for home.

Hab Sab clear turning for home.
However he seemed to be tiring and in danger of being caught between the last two fences, but as soon as he had company he went on again to record a 4 length victory.
Hab Sab clear after the last.

Short back and sides?

It's not just humans who like a haircut to look their best.  The horses are currently being clipped and will hopefully win some "Best turned out" prizes through the winter.

With the new rules beginning on Monday this was the last time that more than six of us (all socially distanced) could meet on a Saturday morning to watch the horses on the gallops.

Moving Forward To The New Season.

Preparations for the new season continue.  Many of the National Hunt horses have upped their work and there have been other actions to achieve the best possible results.  Nat Heal has been in to do some equine dentistry.

The horses have been kept happy with a walk over the stubble fields. (A change as good as a rest)
