The fizz was flowing at breakfast this morning as one of our owners celebrated his 70th birthday. Some had been able to celebrate with him earlier in the week in a box at Plumpton Racecourse so it was time for the others to join in today. As an added bonus the sun shone while the horses cantered on the gallops.
Once again the stable was blessed with glorious weather for its Open Day. The owners were greeted with a glass of fizz at the gate and received a very professional looking brochure (by Emmelia Potts) detailing the staff, horses for sale, owners and their sponsors and what happens to the horses after their racing careers are over.

The owners then had the opportunity to view their horses and socialize while enjoying top ups and nibbles.
Later everyone moved round to the lawn to watch the parade of horses with Linda's informative commentary.

All the horses looked magnificent, their coats shining in the sunshine. Prizes were given out for the "Three To Follow" competition and this year's was set in motion.
The hard working staff then received a round of appreciative applause.
There then followed a buffet lunch with plenty more to drink. A big thank you to Linda and the staff for putting on this very successful event.
