For at tale om noget helt andet – Frankel!


Den magiske morgen på Long – og Warren Hill 7. september

Eftersom helbredet ikke er noget at tale om, så tænker jeg, at jeg vil flytte fokus ihvertfald bare lige sådan kort, for at prøve at lyde lidt positiv. Der skal ikke herske tvivl om, at jeg efterhånden er mere end anstrengt i mit ansigt, så jeg har brug for alle de midler, jeg kan finde.

En af dem, er at tænke på den dejlige tur til Newmarket. Nu har jeg efterhånden vist en del fotos fra turen, og der kommer også et helt indlæg om det (jeg er så småt igang, men sjovt nok er jeg jo igen blevet forsinket). Men nu synes jeg lige, I skulle se, hvad hele turen faktisk handlede om, Frankel. Det var en stor oplevelse at se ham, og det var i det hele taget en dejlig tur, som jeg er glad for, at jeg har “på kontoen” over de gode ting. Den magiske morgen øverst, er også en, jeg aldrig glemmer.

For nu at tage det negative, så var jeg igen til lægen og mit infektionstal er steget IGEN! At sige, jeg er træt af det, beskriver det ikke. Nu tog de så blodprøver til den store Olympiske medalje, og så skal jeg derop igen onsdag. Søndag stopper jeg med medicinen, og om ikke andet, slipper jeg så forhåbentlig hurtigt for den dødlige træthed, der er fulgt med den. Jeg er sgu træt nok ellers, uden jeg behøver at få ekstra oveni. Så jeg er helt smadret. Send lige gode vibes, for nok er nok nu! God weekend til jer!

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.
