Christmas excitement not confined to the track!

 As it was not possible to meet up for our traditional Christmas get together and quiz night our owner/quizmaster organised one that ran through the whole of December and came in various parts.  It was open to non-stable connections as well and attracted five teams.  The stable had a team and an offshoot of the old stable team set up separately (The Absentees).  It proved to be a close contest with the stable team leading right up to the final component, "the connecting wall".  As Malcolm Fitzjohn of the stable team said, "Brilliant festive entertainment.  I think we were hampered badly at the wall but stayed on our feet and recovered well for a place. It will take some time to recover from what was a tough race."  They finished joint second with The Absentees staying on to win.

The Connecting Wall is one of the rounds on BBC2's Only Connect.  You have to arrange 16 words into 4 groups of 4 with a common link in each.  Here is one that was not in the Christmas quiz.

Carol   Diana   Pig   Stable

Barn   Elephant   Solomon   Hand

Field   Donkey   Herod   Jonathan

Sheep   Dave   BB    Pen

This is only for fun, no prizes.  I will post the answer in a few days.

Winter Arrives.

Winter arrived at the yard overnight.  It looked beautiful but we were glad we'd made good use of the hill gallop earlier in the week.

Good Placement

Linda did well to place Iconic Flight in a novice's hurdle at Fontwell that cut up to just four runners.  The opposition was very stiff but with one of the runners unseating its rider it meant he finished third and earned some useful prize money.  Although beaten a long way in this first outing after a wind op, we learnt more about the horse.

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.
