The MGR club members really seemed to enjoy their day out on Sunday and it was especially good to catch up with some old faces and new. The organisation of the open day was spot on and all the horses in the stable looked really well. Romany Ryme looked muscled up considering he has only been back in work since the 1st of September and I have never seen him behaving so fresh and up for a bit mischief as he is usually so laid back. He just needs lots of rain to fall and the ground to soften up before we can start making some plans. Dark Caviar was the best behaved I have seen since I first bought the horse and had a gentle cantor up the gallop without being put under pressure. I must pay a special thank you here to JONATHON BEWLEY who has put a lot of time and effort into the horse and it certainly looks like it is paying dividends. DC still has a plenty of work to do to be ready for racing and to prove himself on the track and he will continue with his work on the gallop on a daily basis until George and Jonathon say he is ready, so far so good though! The five new three year old's all looked the part with the three purchased earlier in the year doing a gentle cantor on the bottom of the all weather gallop led up by Romany Ryme. They all moved nicely and behaved well with my eye being taken by easy moving DEFINITE ARTICLE sired gelding who is out of a SUPREME LEADER mare. Over afternoon tea and a great display of cakes (ok and a few beers and large pieces of corned beef pie in my case) we had the chance to look over the WELL CHOSEN and PRESENTING sired 3yo's who both looked the part. Thank you to the Bewleys for all the organisation of what was a great day. There is much more to report from the open day and that detail will be reserved for our club members eyes and ears only!
