MASTER ARCHER is our first hurdle runner tomorrow when he runs at Towcester. He is the only three year old in the race so most of them will have far more experience than him. We would love to have run him last week at Warwick when he would have been racing against his own age but unfortunately due to the weather it had to be cancelled. We are looking forward to getting him on the track tomorrow.
We sent LORD GEORGE back to Newcastle last Saturday as he has run very well there in the past. Again he ran well against horses rated much higher than him to finish fourth. I am sure one day we will win a nice race with him. He is a lovely horse with a lot of ability.
We have sold the last share in our new Dream Ahead ex Badr Al Badoor filly. Between 1994/7 we had a lovely horse called BLOMBERG who won The Whitsun Cup and then the Gp3 Diomed Stakes at Epsom. H was owned by Jan & Peter Hopper and John & Carol Malagoni and it is the Hoppers who have bought the final share.
SPANISH ARCHER arrives back to Pegasus today after a good holiday with Moppy Peate at Frant in Kent.
THE TIN MAN starts his long trip home today. He has been given the okay by the vets in Hong Kong to fly. We cannot wait to get him back to Pegasus. I think he will be relieved also. He was very ill and we will have to give him a good break before we can start training him again. If all goes well we will hope to aim for the two big sprints at Ascot again in 2018.
