...And Relax! (for a short time anyway...)
As much as we pride ourselves in providing much needed relaxation and rehabilitation for our equine customers, we need to look after our human counterparts too! Horses leaving and the barns emptying out, signals the right time for Nick, Carl and the Sandhurst employees to take a break and recharge their batteries.
We still had over 30 horses on the farm at the beginning of June, but as the number of horses reduced, Nick took a trip back to Newmarket to visit family and catch up with the UK racing industry leaving Carl at the helm of the Sandhurst ship. Happily Nick's visit coincided with Royal Ascot, so although he did not attend due to covid restrictions, it made the quarantine period go much more quickly!
Now Nick is back and just in time too.... There are exciting weeks ahead with Sandhurst's first 2yo runners hitting the track. Carl and Nick will be closely following all entries and results. Remember to sign up to the Sandhurst newsletter to get our August update on runners over the next few months.
So, in between following Sandhurst graduates on the track and giving the barns a deep clean, what else is there to do at Sandhurst over the summer I hear you ask? Well, with Nick refreshed and ready for the up coming sales season, Sandhurst will be very active on the sales merry-go-round, kicking off with Fasig-Tipton in July, then onto Saratoga in August. Oh - and did we mention that somewhere in the middle of all the sales, new baby Esler will be making an appearance?
Never a dull moment and we wouldn't have it any other way!
