Thank You!

Dear All.

Thank you to all who managed to attend the Tapeta Gallop Opening yesterday with Michael Dickinson, we were very fortunate to have such a legend with us in the Scottish Borders! For those of you unable to join in here is a link to John Grossick Racing Photography to see some great photos taken on the day.

So many thank you’s needed; to Michael and Joan for coming over from Maryland to the wet and wilds of Eskdalemuir . The home team Neil and Sally-  super hosts!  Maurice Friel for working a miracle in drainage, the owners and their horses (Scorpion Sting for Aintree/Dan Brown Champion Point to Point Northern Novice Rider?!) - who put on a great show! The catering crew - Aileen Cavers and Hannah Laidlaw and little Gracie of course! And to Scott McKenzie from The Craig Farm Syndicate for supplying the best ever bacon! And to Ronnie and Cameron for the great PR work and to Gordon Brown and the Racing UK crew.

Brian Hughes also managed to fit us in before heading off to ride a winner at Bangor, to Graeme Reid of Reid Quantum for supplying us all with brand new watertight sponsored jackets.

Finally to all the press and public who came along to support the day, it means a lot to us so a big thanks to you all. Please see below some links for those that very kindly featured our new gallop opening.

Hope to see you racing soon.

James and Briony
