A brilliant “Ramsey” Weekend!

22nd September 2013
No, I’m not talking about that obnoxious chef; I have two “Ramsey’s” in mind, one human and one equine!

Let’s deal with the human one first; what an incredible transformation we have witnessed in Aaron Ramsey for Arsenal this season! The 22 year old has been a revelation and is now a key player as the North London club chase silverware this season. So far in eight Premier League and European matches, he has been outstanding and notched seven goals. Yesterday’s goal against Stoke was no classic but it showed a real poachers instinct.

I think it’s fair to say that even the most die-hard gooners wondered if they would ever again see the pre Shawcross form from the young Welshman, but he is now a vital cog in a superb Arsenal midfield.

Now to the equine connection! My fabulous little five year old horse “Alfraamsey” won the big hurdle race at Plumpton yesterday. Alf has now won for me eight times in two years on the flat, the all weather and hurdles and even won a novice chase at the end of last season.

He is a real gutsy little horse and has run 23 times for us, only finishing out of the first four on four occasions.

In case you’ve never been, get yourself down to Plumpton one day, it’s a fabulous friendly little track in East Sussex with a great atmosphere (especially when your horse wins!)
