Welcome

James Fanshawe has become one of the most familiar and respected figures on the British Turf – this tall, slim, bespectacled fellow who has given new energy and life to a stable steeped in history. In his unassuming way, however, James Fanshawe remains ever ambitious to build upon that status with new stars for every discipline.

Even though we only had one Royal Ascot runner it is such a big week for everyone that it is a bit of an anti climax when it is over.

We really need the rain so very happy to see it pouring down here. Unfortunately they have had buckets up at York where we did not want it for HORS DE COMBAT. He loves to skip off top of the ground so not sure if he is going to run.

Speedy Boarding dashed to the front in The Ballymacoll Stakes at Newbury on Thursday. She is a filly that James has always liked so after a particularly sticky start to the season it was a great boost for the yard.

We are well into June and it still seems very cold and wintery. Last week we had a few lovely warm days and the horses bloomed and now we are back to very cold mornings again. It is very muddling for us and the horses.
