Go Mr Fitzroy!
Well I am still coming down from a brilliant day yesterday, Mr F is such a superstar - I always knew he was capable of running a big race like yesterday but we have had to get over numerous little niggles with him. To have a winner is a joy but to have one on channel 4 was amazing, I am equally amazed at the amount of kind messages, emails and facebook messages that we have received.
I know that we have been struggling to get a winner but we have been hitting the goal posts a fair bit before Christmas, it was only a matter of time that it all fell into place, yesterday has given us all a well needed confidence boost and a bit more incentive to get out of bed on the cold wet mornings at 5.30...
James Banks gave him a great ride and rode completely to instructions, he had to do 9st 12 - not easy I would imagine. My staff are a great team and as a trainer I rely on good feedback and to know that what I ask them to do gets done properly, something that I would never take for granted. I really appreciate the good people I have around me, from my staff Hannah, Chrissy and Casey, to the chiropractor Anton, the physio Nikki, the farrier Terry and the vets, Woodlands. No one in any industry will achieve anything without first class help and I think people should recognise this more often.
