Racing UPDATE: Sixth win of the season for SL!

The heatwave is over but it is still a nice summer!

The weather has cooled down a bit and we have had a few much needed showers. This is welcomed by our  horses as it provides a short relief from the horse flies and other insects! Also the fields, trees and plants are badly in need of some water! Who would believe that we have a mini-drought in Ireland!

The foals are growing rapidly and the older ones look very mature already, in their shiny summer coats. They all come into their boxes in the morning for a quiet sleep and a snack with their mothers. This is an important routine and teaches them to behave well at an early stage. We will update the site with photographs of them next week. 

Next Monday is the first day of the Galway Festival where Busted Tycoon will be in action. We will keep you posted on her achievements. This is also a busy time for the stallions who shuttle to the Southern Hemisphere. Des has already had a trip to Chile and is currently on his way to Sydney. I have been to Auckland, New Zealand last week. Thankfully all has gone well so far. 

EVERYONE is enjoying the sun!

Divs is happy to be back in Ireland!
