July started with the Tattersalls July sale in Newmarket where I bought 4 horses. Two colts will go out to Saudi Arabia, one colt will race in Bahrain and one will remain in the UK.
My wife, two daughters and I went off for two well-earned weeks of holiday on the island of Skopelos in Greece. It was fabulous to just relax and get away from the telephone and email!
In August I start getting busy with the Autumn sales season
