10 Jun Great morning on the gallops with Stuart Williams
We started off with a visit to Diomed Stables in Hamilton Road, Newmarket where trainer Stuart Williams is based for a tour of his yard. Stuart is looking out for another Club horse for us and with the July Sales not too far away, fingers crossed for a fun replacement for DOCTOR PARKES and JEANIE’S PLACE.
We were then taken to the Peat Gallops which are near the July course where we watched a group of Stuart’s 2 year olds. The Peat Gallops are treated once a year with peat and then the grass is allowed to grow through making the gallops perfect for the young horses.
Finally, we came back to the yard where Stuart took us around to show us the horses. We had a number of guests with us today and their day finished with a tour of the National Stud.
