MICHAEL Halford has a promising string of horses and most are ready to run, when racing resumes. There is of course a bigger picture here and racing has had to be patient and wait for guidance from the Government as to when it is safe to resume.

“It’s a strange time that we are living in, but I’m optimistic that we can resume racing reasonably soon. The good weather has been a big help to the horses and staff over the last few weeks. The fillies have really thrived and come to hand and the horses all look great,” Halford stated.
