Trainer Helle Christensen had two horses on the track, or one it was rather as Runner is not a racehorse anymore. He was there to keep Red Runner company. She’s his little half-sister. They share the same mother Afrodite where he is after Academy Award and she’s Special Quest and as such she is the whole sister of another great horse Harmonia. It is Jaqueline Jacobsen on Red Runner and Christian Usinger on Runner Runner
I don’t know who was more pleased with themselves, Christian or Runner
Manuel Santos on Lady Quest (Tine Hansen) and Marcos Robaldo on Indika (Bent Olsen)
Christel Preuthun and Jacob Johansen on Brownie (FR) and No Comment in the paddock. Actully they were meant to go on the grass, but someone changed their minds, and they went on the cushin instead so that’s why they’re photographed here instead, both lovely horses and they went very well
Monday I was up early to photograph grassgalops. As per ususal I spent a lot of time waiting, and waiting. I nearly missed Red Runner and Runner Runner, but the trainer alerted me so I managed to get the photos.
Afterwards we had a chat, which was nice, but that meant I missed a couple of horses (whom they were I don’t know). That was a bit of a shame, as I didn’t get that many grassgalops Monday. Not surprising since everyone had been racing here, there and everywhere.
And of course no-one (again) told me that there was grass galops after racing Saturday, so I missed those as well. I left just before the last race to go to the stable. But at least here is a little for you and that’s always better than nothing in my book. Now we’re having a break until next race day which gives me a nice chance to catch up a bit.
