Saturday 4th August:
I didn't get a chance to do the journal on Saturday as it was a hectic day. We did the last preparation work at home with the Swift Hoffman X Swift Inny litter and Storm Control X Zaras Fantasy litter. The endless task of collecting supplies continued and that was as much as we could do.
WE HAD ONE OPEN RACE WINNER AT ROMFORD WHIZZY WONDER.
TONIGHT WE HAVE ONE RUNNER: JOVIAL MONK AT TOWCESTER.

Thursday 2nd August:
I got the biggest fright of my life during the night. At 1am every dog in the place was going crazy including the four retireds broods I have in the house. I went out to see what was wrong and there was a fox with a litter of cubs in my place. The four retireds that live in the house knocked me over getting out to chase them. Thankfully the fox and cubs got away and no dogs were injured.
The plans for today are to gallop which will take all day and we need a mountain of supplies which will take Conor all day to collect. Increadably were up to date with all the paperwork. My head lad Padgies wife still hasnt had her baby. Newcastle United are in a total mess which is now the norm. The whole of Ireland has the sickness and flu. I hope it misses me. Baby pups, workers, vans are all going perfect as I touch wood and have my fingers crossed.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAVE 8 RUNNERS TONIGHT.
AT HOVE: SWIFT NADIA AND SWIFT ALLIANCE.
AT MONMORE: SWIFT DANIELLE.
AT NEWCASTLE: SWIFT MAGPIE AND SWIFT REACTION.
AT YARMOUTH: SWIFT DIXON, SWIFT GALLOWAY AND OH ARMANI.
Wednesday 1st August:
Another cool, overcast morning but I don't think we will get rain. The main jobs today is hunting pups and changing all beds in all kennels. We have fresh straw to bag, the never ending job of supplies to collect and we will do a bit of tidying up. We mated our last brood bitch for the year. We need our tanks emptied and we need the grass cut in our rearing paddocks.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAD ONE WINNER LAST NIGHT: SWIFT SARGE.
