Cathrine is up – she knows “Mama”, but she is a big horse

Rockn’ Roll has passed here, and it’s here Lady Hjort makes use of her ekstra gear and gives all she’s got and comes in second – it’s her at full speed far right.

The first race of the day was ever only about one horse seen from my point of view. Lady Hjort. It was her second start this year, but only her 3. in all. First time this year I didn’t see, so friday was my first that way. I helped Susie get her ready and walked with them to the track. She was simply and angle. In the padock she was very nice too, but did speed up a bit. But not more than I was able to get some lovely pictures of her and Susie as you can see. Horses can be more or less photogenic as I have mentioned before. I don’t have to tell you that this one is a right little model 😉 She’s ever so beautiful and on top she has a nice way about her.

She didn’t win this race, but she got a very fine 2. place for which she really fought. We are very proud of her and so was her owners too as you can see. Congratiolations to them!

Also a big congratulations to our neighbours with Rock’n Roll (Final Appearance – Relate), owned Racing Team, trained by Søren Jensen and was ridden by Luis Villaroel, the following were Cathrine and Lady Hjort, Manuel Santos and Cheita, Martin Rodrigues on Clauses Cherie and Nicholas Cordrey on Little Nellie.
