Quite an exciting day for the Organisers of Two C's Antiques Fairs at Ludlow Racecourse on Sunday 8th May although perhaps not for Ben during the Judging of the Best Dressed Lady. This is the second Year he has been asked to Judge it and it takes a bit of nerve and diplomacy. However the result seemed to meet everyone's approval but after running Antique Fairs for ten years it may have not been so difficult in comparison. I for one did not envy him though.
We were invited to Sponsor the last Race on the Card the 2 mile National Hunt Flat Race. It was won by the Nicky Henderson trained Armaans Wish ridden by Jeremy McGrath in a decisive fashion. Congratulations to the Middleham Park Racing syndicate who own him. I had to give Ben a quick crash course on how to judge the Best Turned out Horse and he managed this with ease.
To top the day off my own horse Chankillo finished third in the feature race and continues to pay for his Oats. He has his holiday booked now and I have just got out his deckchair and sunglasses in readiness.
