One of the reasons for being busy is the renaissance of TROTBritain (of which I have been Chair since 9/11/93 some clearing up of files revealed!) It is based on our agreement with Le Trot (i.e. Cheval Francais) to sponsor races for Trotteur Francais for three years and for them to arrange a sale of horses to provide the fields. So several of us did a tour de france to see those put forward by their owners and selected 29 horses for the 29 people who had put their 2500 euros for a horse in to the hat. They then drew a horse by lot from those we had selected. Anyway you can read more by delving back into the posts on the TROTBritain Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/TROTBritain/110523435625479 I'm not a great fan of FB but it seems to to be the best way to get in touch with the harness racing community.
It's been a busy year and the blog has suffered, but Ulster winning yesterday is a good stimulus to update. Here's the link to the video and if after watching him win you click race 6 at top you will see Vogue finish 6th (3rd with more luck!) http://www.courseschevaux.fr/videos/viewer2.php?id=85660&hid=712&date=2014-08-24 And here is a log on the year so far.
