Arch Walker – Wolverhampton 19th April

Arch Walker report by Steve –

In the words of that famous footballing legend “it’s a funny ol game”,

We arrived at a rainy Wolverhampton on the back of our first winner of 2012 (well done Fast Shot and his owners), with all the expectations of a really bold show from “Archie” and if lady luck was really smiling on us maybe a double on the day.

Sadly our “Archie” hadn’t read the script, he thought today was a play day and not a race day, he looked really well in the parade ring, but didn’t transfer that on to the track and sadly finished down the field, Luke (Morris) reported that he “spat his dummy out” after he took a slight bump on the bend and basically downed tools.

We know he is better than this, and maybe just needed a run after such a long layoff. Howe haver Archie’s owners Gavin, Dawn and Mike (Middleham stables open day comp winners) certainly enjoyed themselves on their first visit to a racecourse as owners.

Big thanks to all at John Weymes for having him looking so well.
