The weather has been good to us so far and there have been no hold ups with the horses yet but we are just waiting for that all to change.
Not only has it been good for the horses it has meant that the builders have been able to kick on with our new seventeen box yard. They have started laying the bricks but apparently it will take twice as long as normal as the yard is curved which as can be expected more difficult.
Andrew Turner who in the past has owned SPRING JIM, INCENDO & LEVI DRAPER and now has ANGEL DELIGHT is the builder and he has promised us that he will have them finished for the Guineas (hopefully he means the 2014 running).
James is very excited about the quality of the two year olds and on top of that we have some nice three year olds, raced and unraced, that look to have improved physically over the winter. We also have twenty two older horses to go to war with.
I have got my two Fred Archer partnerships to look after. At this stage they both look nice horses. The Compton Place colt PRESTO BOY looks as if he will be a earlier than the DEACON BLUES half brother by Equiano called THE TIN MAN.
