As the sun comes up on the Newmarket heath it reminds me why I chose this life. Horse racing is not a job, it's a lifestyle. It is not a game you play once in a while: when you're in it, you're in it. And I love it!
On Christmas' Eve it feels like the world slows down just for a little bit and that is great, it brings back childhood memories. But by Boxing Day it's all systems go again.
As a trainer I focus and I think forward, ammunition for 2016 is key. First step, fill up every box at Saint Wendred's , that is my goal that I'm always working on whilst getting some runners ready to debut on the All - Weather.
At the same time getting the yearlings ready to slot into their 2 year-old regime. It's exciting.
The unseasonably warm weather makes the high tech heated insoles from Santa unnecessary at the moment. Great! The days are getting longer as well, kind of :)
From our family to yours I wish all readers Peace & Prosperity
