Claude In The Money Again

Claude Greenwood earned more prize money today when he finished third in a 1 mile 2 furlong handicap on the all weather at Kempton.  In a field of fourteen he was ridden prominently by Charles Bishop from the off and was in a good position entering the home straight.  He made an effort to press the leaders at the 1 furlong pole but could not match their pace in the final 100 yards.  At odds of 20/1 this was another good effort from a horse that has been consistent in his grade this season.

Conquering The Hill

The number of Saturday breakfast owners visiting the hill increased in the beautiful weather.

 First the flat horses worked, then it was back to the yard for breakfast.

 Then it was a return to the hill for the National Hunt horses.

A thoroughly pleasant morning!

Rain Great For Hill.

The arrival of the heavy rain this week has allowed the horses to use the hill gallop again.  It was good to see them working up the centre strip this morning in proper National Hunt weather.
