This weekend Saxon house stables is set to host our second ever owners day. It's been all hands on deck over the past couple of weeks ensuring both the yard and horses are looking at their very best. It's a nice way of all of our owners to come together not only to see their horses but to meet other owners too, I just pray that the weather will be kind to us.
This week saw the return of Caprice D'anglais after a short holiday and a 4yr old son of the late Flying Legend out of a winning hurdler he is called Iwilldoit. He is owned and bred by Stan Brown who with his Late Father Reg Brown were responsible for my first ever winner under rules so It would be a dream come true if I can repay the favour to Stan and his family with a winner! He has been taken on by the very successful syndicate Diamond Racing and more information on how to get involved can be found by clicking on the link below.

Steve and Pattricia Capper came to visit us to see their new horse, the beautiful 3yr old Kalnisi who is still to be named has just one 25% share left in him. He's a very exciting youngster who'll start off in a bumper probably sometime into the new year, watch this space!
Kieth and Amen some of our most recent owners colours recently arrived which are seen here modelled by our very own secretary Emma!
Last week Jack Sherwood popped in to see us as he is now back in Shropshire and based with trainer Henry Daly, a top guy and a very talented rider. Pictured here riding The Cannister Man (right) Oscars Little Rose (left)
Lady Knight will most likely be our next runner, she is going very nicely since joining us and will hopefully make an appearance on the racecourse in the next couple of weeks.
The afternoons have been busy also as we have been taking the opportunity with no runners to use the lunging ring for some youngsters and certain older horses which we feel would benefit from it. It is very good at building up a horses top line and encourages horses to use themselves properly which ultimately helps them to develop the right muscles. It is also a handy aid to work on the fitness for some of the older horses which have summered a little too well!
