Thaw walker has landed


Sorry for radio silence this week I thought it prudent with Jason s discIplinary hearing having been today ! The facts are there to be read and the less I say the better ... Our new horse walker arrived on Monday and is being put to good use .. My poor old legs have rejoiced ever since .. The thing is though that I actually enjoy a lead out in hand so I shall not fully retire to the walker s uses ! The Revouqe mare has been named and "Heavenly Gait " suits her just nicely . We like her a lot and she heads off early in the morning for a racecourse gallop with two other trainer s horses .. More news to follow after tomorrow . Rory , Peterhouse ,Ypres to name but a few are enjoying their hols and seem to revel in getting as much mud on themselves as is possible ! The Showcasing filly is ridden and loves her education , she grows everyday and eats like a horse !!! Brutus ... Pastoral Pursuits colt is slightly behind the filly but we have been across his withers and next step is to slide a leg over .. There is no rush and we pride ourselves at Team Ward in taking time and doing the job right . Bushy is thriving and looks a picture all systems go for his next run .. Terry has .. Is.. Doing a brilliant job riding and looking after him much credit to him . Sweetness looks fit to burst and frightens me to death as she set off round the paddock yesterday at lightening speed .. A small reminder to me of the ability she once possessed .. I hope she passes it on ! A final word on the passing of a great racehorse trainer this week .. Denys Smith I would think will be joining dad at the bar .. Whiskey for all !!!
