Saturday 22nd December

Merry Christmas everyone from team FOB.

A brilliant day yesterday with a winner and 2 2nds.

‘Ask Dillon’ powered up the home straight at Ascot to win the Maiden hurdle really well for ‘4 the fun partnership’. A great ride by Paddy.

‘Ask Dillon’ schooling this week ready for Ascot.

At Uttoxeter ‘Liosduin Bhearna’ made a solid start to his hurdling career with a good 2nd in the Maiden hurdle only beaten 3 lengths. The first 2 pulled way clear of the rest of the field and Connor was really happy with him.

‘Liosduin Bhearna’ looking ready for christmas!!!

‘Imperial Alcazar’ finished the day at Ascot with a running on 2nd in the listed bumper. He was held up at the back and made eye catching ground just before turning into the home straight. He looks a serious horse for the future and Paddy loves his attitude.

‘Golden Taipan’ pulled too hard yesterday and weakened turning for home. He is fine this morning and will be back to try again after Christmas.

2 great Christmas cakes were made today.

A fruit cake made by Clare….

And a another made by Penny…. (it’s me and Fergal sat on the cake!!!!) ….

No runners now until Boxing Day so we can have a few days to get the yard in order and enjoy Christmas.

Thanks for reading.
