We’ve entered Bird For Life and Bird To Love in the mile and a half amateur race at Newbury this coming Saturday 26th October. They are both rated quite low so they aren’t guaranteed a run but it is possible the race could divide which would mean they would both run (one in each division); or if the weather turns it might put enough people off for both to get a run in the same race. We won’t know for sure until Thursday but I think Bird For Life at least has a fair chance of running. If she does the race is at 5:05 and Lily Jones will ride. It will be Lily’s first ride on the race course; she is only 17 but she grew up around horses and the racing industry and she rode out for us a bit when she was still at school. Bird For Life is a great horse for her first ride; despite being a bit grumpy she is a very safe ride.
