We hit the cross bar a couple of times this week with both Three Beauz and Smokey Malone finishing second on Tuesday with one at Redcar and the other at Southwell. Both ran good races without looking like the winner and will be getting their heads in front soon.
We're coming to that time of year when a few horses are heading out on their winter holidays as their season comes to a close but we still have some nice horses for the autumn and ones who will appreciate some soft ground - even though it's still firm in most places!
It's not far away from yearling sales time either and although we won't be buying as many as last year, I hope we can still get a few fresh faces in for next year.
After a busy couple of weeks with runners, we have a blank one coming up which is a bit of a relief as we have been doing plenty of travelling recently. There's still lots to do in the yard at home though but it's nice to have some time off from sitting in traffic on the motorway or being sent on long diversions due to road closures!
