    She offered Busty, she has too many and books are for reading not gathering dust.
    Send me a PM with your address on it and I will get her to post it to you. You may have a little wait as she isn't keen on mixing with the public right now.

    Me too. Just been having a clear out (not yet finished) and I can't believe how many books (and photos and videos/CDs) we have accumulated. Not sure what to do with this lot; I'm sure there will be lots that we can't throw out

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this one. I’ve had a look at the conditions of a few races now and from what I can see the allowance when riding for their own stable is standard at 3lbs.

    Any chance of the 2020 matings of Gravitation and Gemina. I know the 2020 foals, so no need for them.

    Just to let you all know I received Stick's sister's copy of the Persian War biography. It was extremely generous and kind of her. I have read the book, which is fascinating: a great horse, a terrible owner and a different time.
    Thanks again to Stick and his sister.

    A bit late in the day but does RoM say which mare Cliveden Stud sent to Cable Bay in 2020? They are showing a filly foal on the Racing Post website I have not logged.

    I’ve now had a look at the RoM and cannot find anything against their name! I can only assume that they bought a mare carrying in utero, or had some kind of foal share deal with another breeder.

    Interestingly there were quite a few mares under Noreen McManus’ name - perhaps JP sees him as a future NH sire! He’s never been afraid to send his NH mares to flat stallions in the past!
