I’ve landed at home, and have even seen “my” own little Frankel at the stables today, which was lovely. But I am tired like approximately 3 retirement homes, so a good thing, there’s no racing this week at Klampenborg Racecourse.

This entry is not as much going over the trip as such, that’ll come but just to give you a bit of a teaser, and most of all to say thank you to everyone for making my trip lovely. The only downside of it was that due to phone problems, I didn’t get to meet up with lovely friends who live over there. I’m putting my hopes in the next trip to Newmarket – as there’s most certainly going to be one.

I met so many lovely people on my trip going there, being there and going home. People are really friendly so here goes: Ayisha & Sofie, from Stanstead, London, Jay from Lincoln, Clive Brittian, Ross (head lad for Godolphin Staples), and the lady who made me aware of the beautiful sunrise from the get go (trainer?), all the riders at Warren Hill and Long Hill for being friendly and asking about my photos, The lovely two couples at Stanstead Airport, who made my wait more enjoyable, the lovely guy standing in que going to France from Marocco and the helpful staff at the airport, when I made a fool of myself (more about that later).

Also a huge thanks to Jean who managed to meet up with Sue and I at the Horse Racing Museum’s Cafe, and Sue for driving up, and also a huge thanks to Katherine from Juddmonte for helping me figure out the booking and stuff for the Frankel Tour and the lovely guides at Banstead Manor.

Last but not least a huge thank you to my lovely, lovely host Linda at Sandhurst B&B and her husband for being wonderful people and perfect hosts. They have now made two trips perfect and I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else. I can only be thankful for a lovely trip and meeting such lovely people. If I have forgotten anyone (I pray to God, I haven’t) in my “senile” state of mind, it’s far from on purpose More to follow.

Septemberlykke

Jeg ville have været afsted sidste år, det kom jeg ikke. Husker ikke, hvorfor men hvorom alting var, det gjorde jeg ikke. Nu var jeg så spændt på, om det blev igen, for så ville jeg afsted i år. Der var en tur lige omkring min fødselsdag og så to ture inden også. Da jeg endelig fik taget mig sammen, så var ALT booket, og det var det 24 timer efter de blev udbudt.

Nu var gode råd dyre, for hvad gjorde jeg så. Så sad jeg der med lang næse, men den søde bookingdame fortalte, at der i dag blev udbudt en tur i september også, og jeg har så siddet klar ved computeren en times penge for at være sikker på at få min meget eftertragtede billet. Nu skal jeg så arrangere resten omkring turen, men det er mindre detaljer tænker jeg. Det bliver spændende udover det sædvanlige.

Hvad jeg taler om, er en tur over og se verdens bedste galophest til dato Frankel. Jeg kan dårligt sige, hvor meget jeg glæder mig til at se ham, og selvfølgelig de andre hingste også, og så skal jeg også til løb.

Som om det ikke var nok, så skal jeg senere den måned på weekendhyggeophold med en af mine dejlige veninder. Jeg samler på oplevelser og i september får jeg nærmest “overload”. Nej hvor jeg glæder mig, til begge dele.
