A quieter time at the stables now with horses out to paddocks for a well earned break. All the team are also are on their holidays and we will all start back fully in July.

Now is a good time to disinfect paint and tidy everywhere up in time for our Open Day and Parade of Horses on the 6th September - if you are interested to attend and see the horses we have For Sale please contact the office office@jeracing.co.uk as it is by invitation only this year. Hopefully I might get a mention in the parade this year!

This year we have a filly foal by Tikkanen out of Think Green the last of the Tikkanen's as he sadly passed away recently. We also sadly lost our broodmare Mocha and her foal during birthing. Luckily she has two lovely colts one in Ireland and Marocchino who we have here in training. He is looking very useful but very sad to lose such a good broodmare from the family of Azertyuiop - let's hope her sons fly the flag for her.

We now have a new 'Kings Theatre' adventure with Cornsay Horses and Mr Medici and we will keep you posted. We always try to breed a few each season as it is the ultimate reward and satisfaction to watch them come through from Foaling to the racecourse. I love the breaking in and long reining especially as maximum walk opportunities!

We put 'Willies Bench' out by the gallops for the summer and I took the opportunity to get some sunbathing in whilst it lasted! We always remember Willie and his wise words and it was great to see his favourite Civil Unrest winning again.

We have a few left to run in June and then yard stalwart David Macleod has his well earned holiday. Look out for Touch of Steel now he is into Handicaps he has grown and strengthened all season and should reap some reward for his owners patience - Ann Fraser, who was awarded an MBE for all her good work with the BHS - I hear she has another racing trip planned with mum to the Velká pardubická in Czech Republic this time - I better get my passport ready!

Some new faces to look out for on the racecourse this season ahead with all the prep work having been done on the gallop and schooling at the tail end of last season - Calix Delafayette and Calach caught the eye on the gallop along with Bill D'Aron who arrived latterly but gallops all day for fun, the last son of top Sire Dom Alco so a lot to look forward to.

Have a great summer,
