It was the end of an era for me last Friday at Stratford Racecourse and I enjoyed every minute of a long but happy day. The day started with the PPORA awards lunch and the Paddock Pavilion was bursting at the seams as 320 people gathered to listen to guest speaker, Nicky Henderson. He was followed by Luke Harvey – who hosted what […]Read More Farewell to the AGA final, it was fun while it lasted!
An AGA double header started on Grand National day at Mollington – with a huge screen so nobody missed the big race – and finished with a first ever visit to Andoversford the following day. Two AGA champions had a starring role and a Claire Hart treble was the highlight at Mollington, while there was a great win […]Read More Mollington and Andoversford provide the setting for an AGA double header

Here’s the blog post that I published in […]Read More Team Ireland v Team GB – a look back at the 2013 Tattersalls International Point-to-Point Challenge
This is a direct quote from my post race blog 12 months ago: ‘Not many people beat Amicelli in his own back yard and after Harty won the race on Palypso De Creek it looks like she is now going to be banned from travelling north of Derby until further notice!’. What was the reason for that statement? Because Claire […]Read More Look out Yorkshire, Claire Hart and Palypso De Creek are coming to get you!
Good times at Barbury Castle as we enjoy another day of point-to-point racing in the sunshine, there is also lots of fashion advice for the AGA man and Gina Andrews promises to (finally) read the blog! For the second weekend running I was setting off to go to a point-to-point meeting in glorious sunshine, and for the […]Read More AGA man up with the pace on second run of the season, but choice of apparel causes a stir
