Phillipa Cooper: "I just want to get rid of the daily grind..."

if you've met her, you might find this as hilarious as I do.

In fairness, telling people what to do a couple of times a day can be rather tiresome.  Let alone looking through those stud brochures...then there's opening the mail, the list goes on and on.

I'll take that as a compliment rather than misplaced sarcasm.

"Misplaced sarcasm" ironic

Clearly we've touched a nerve.  I appreciate one person's 'daily grind' in this business may differ from another, no offence meant.

Having staff to deal with can be much more stressful than physical work. If you have plenty of money, why do something that is keeping you awake at night? I don't know Mrs Cooper but I can think of plenty of reasons to take life easier.

So she's selling the land and the mares will be boarded elsewhere?

Glorious Journey won today - the colt sold for 2.6 million gns.

Ballymacoll Stud was also sold at auction this week. End of an era perhaps. Who of the older brigade will forget the string of top class horses running in the Sobell/Weinstock colours? Troy winning the Derby and King George was probably their best but there are plenty of others.

Frank Dunne has bought Ballymacoll. No reason to think the legacy cannot continue.

Hope you are right. Islington and Abingdon are top mares to breed from.
