I am very sad to report that ARCHIE RICE suffered an injury in yesterday’s race which proved to be fatal. The yard is a very sombre place today and he will be greatly missed by everyone. We have always referred to him as the ‘flag bearer’ for the Club and he was a great favourite with all the members. He will be impossible to replace. RIP Archie.

On a more positive note, CHANCE IT ran a satisfactory race having not been in the yard long. He jumped very well and in a race that was too short for him, acquitted himself well. He is sure to improve for the run.

Regards to you all,
