He was a late foal, but he certainly wasn’t underdone and he has plenty of scope to grow a little more. He has already arrived at Robbie Dawson’s spelling operation in Hammarsdale and we’ll be looking forward to seeing how he progresses over the next 6 weeks. Seen here, a month after his arrival, he appears to have settled in nicely.
