Racing at Southwell. Up at dawn to load the lorry with She's Humble and an unraced 3 year old. An early start to try to avoid the traffic and heat. Paul driving, Karen and Dick as grooms and Richard Young (Owner) aboard.

Another jolly breakfast with fresh cherries from Dick's orchard to supplement the rolls, ham, pate, croissants, pain au chocolat, chocolate muffins and chocolate coated flapjacks. Then a glass of champagne to celebrate Linda's mother's successful move to the stable annex. Could this very French start to the day be a hint of racing destinations to come.
Outside, She's Humble demonstrated her wellbeing in anticipation of a trip to the races this coming week.

The regulars had an interesting time today that illustrated the diverse features of stable life. First was the opportunity to watch Running Bull school over jumps. After the disappointment of last Saturday's outing on the all weather at Lingfield he will be tried over hurdles at Stratford next week.
Then over a breakfast of sausages, bacon, scrambled egg, toast, chocolate brownies and lemon slices, Linda described her trip to France during the week. She had met up with Nick and Sue Davies to discuss their horses, then visited Deauville Racetrack to view the sales and learn more about French racing with the intention of sending runners there in the future.
