Another Day For The Memory Bank.

Breden took part in the Shergar Cup at Ascot today giving all the connections another great experience.  Being Breden it was no surprise when the heavens opened a few minutes before race time but on this occasion it did not make a significant difference to the going.  Australian jockey Mark Zahra, riding for the Rest Of The World team, held Breden up at the rear until turning into the straight.  He made up a bit of ground but 7th was the best he could manage on this occasion.  Still he earned nearly £2000 in prize money and Mark had the satisfaction of being part of the winning team.

Translation Apps at the Ready!

There is an air of excitement and anticipation at the yard today as we are just hours away from declaring Breden at the Shergar Cup at Ascot (Please don't rain hard this time).  Then Linda will know who is down to ride him in this international team competition.  Japanese, French and Spanish phrase books and Apps are at the ready to give the necessary instructions.

Rain washes away Breden's big day.

After all the excitement and anticipation of a runner at Royal Ascot the heavy rain through the afternoon on Wednesday meant that Linda had to pull Breden out of The Royal Hunt Cup.  It was a great shame but the ground change made it unsuitable for him.  Hopefully by saving him there will be more success to come this season.
