Urban Scene is known by the stable name "Poppy" and here is a most appropriate photo.
Having posed, she became a pioneer by being Linda's first runner under the new "Behind Closed Doors" rules when turning out at Chelmsford this evening.
Unfortunately she was unplaced.

Not All Are Resting!

While all the National Hunt horses are having a holiday, the few flat horses are still working with the resumption of racing hopefully only a few days away.  Karen was at the hill gallop on her hack, Vogue, to supervise Oli on Urban Scene.
You can view a video at  https://youtu.be/0uySRsJ1XGY
She has also been working hard keeping the yard tidy and the grass mowed!
