7 May

Posted on May 7, 2018

My youngest, Paddy, summed up today at Warwick perfectly ‘Not a very good day, Dad’ ! DELIRIOUS LOVE jumped like an idiot on his debut over hurdles – far, far too keen, and gave the obstacles no respect at all before unseating Kielan at the third. For a horse that is so relaxed at home, and who jumps hurdles like he’s been doing it all of his life, he’s been a very frustrating horse to take racing this winter. ALEXANDER THE GREY then travelled really nicely for a long way in the 2m handicap hurdle before Kielan felt him take a couple of false steps, and pulled him up very quickly indeed. We couldn’t find anything obviously wrong after the race, but we’ll see how he is in the morning. Fingers crossed, it is nothing serious.
