But that didn’t matter, and it all just added to the […]Read More Rain and mud at Alnwick but there are smiles all round as we enjoy another AGA cracker
Frosty morning, warm Yorkshire welcome, great racing, nice people, the return of Amicelli, impressive AGA ladies winner, an AGA ladies title challenger from the north-east, Channel 4 Racing man in attendance, and lots of Easterby’s wearing AGA hats – that pretty much sums up a great day at Sheriff Hutton!
