What a fabulous 48 hours we have had! Firstly, the horses have all been running well in May. Miss Inga Sock winning twice for the Ascot Colts and Fillies Club, Toulson winning at Nottingham and Waves getting off the mark at Bath.
Then came the May bank holiday. 6 runners all with chances is normally a sign that it is all about to go horribly wrong, but no, we had 3 winners. OPTIMUM TIME was our first 2yo winner of the year, winning very impressively at Windsor. It was quite a modest event, but he did it really impressively, confirming out opinion of him. This was followed by FRANK BRIDGE at Leicester and TOULSON back at Windsor. A wonderful day, which ended with me taking the staff out for a well deserved drink to celebrate.
Yesterday we went off to Leicester, not sure what to expect with BAHAMADAM in a hot fillies handicap and she duly obliged, followed up by FAVOURITE ROYAL winning up at Wolverhampton for her very enthusiastic and loyal owners headed by Peter Wollaston.
A quite phenomenal 48 hours, and I can't quite believe it is happening.
We have more runners with chances this week, so hopefully the winners will keep coming. I am so grateful to all my owners and staff who have helped this happen.
