Sunday this last weekend saw Nomade de Mai out in the eighth race for the Equestrian festival’s qualifier race in the gold class. He held up well although our decision to take all four shoes off in the light rain proved a little unfortunate when the heavens opened and the going changed. Either way, he galloped at the start and finished down the home straight at a canter…..as I said to Martin, we need to be rocket Scientists to work out what the problem is this time…..and Martin did point out he wasn’t even a scientist let alone a rocket scientist LOL. We will continue to plug away until we get it right with him or give up totally…..time will tell.
Made in Hoff was up on Monday, running in the Equestrian festival Premier qualifier race. She had a slow start but ran an excellent race managing to come in second place (third originally but the first horse was disqualified for hooking), having come from the last two horses. She worked hard and came in with a speed of 1’14″4 over 1640m. She has such a good heart.

Quid de Belle Vue is up on Sunday December 14th in the Prix de Cagnes sur Mer. For the third time he is racing with the number 9. How is it possible we ask ourselves to have the same number three times in a row! Fingers, legs and arms crossed that things go well for him on the day. ❤
