Claude Almighty has been a very difficult horse to train. We all love him, but he tries very hard to make that difficult. He likes things to be done his way, but Jo is teaching him that's not how it works.
He has had a few runs for us, which have been disappointing. However, we think we might have discovered that it is problems with his feet which have held him back. We think we have sorted out his problems and he certainly seems to be enjoying his work at home.
Claude made his come-back run at Worcester on 22nd August. He ran a very creditable sixth and seemed to really enjoy himself.
It looks like he is going to give his owners in the These Girls Can Racing Club some real fun this season.
Claude ran again at Worcester on 12th September. We now know he can't stand soft going!
