Some of you will recall my joy at becoming a part owner (5%) in a racehorse some months ago.
I was looking forward to reporting on this blog the progress of “Charlie” the Red Dazzler / Swing and Miss gelding I was a part owner of.
Unfortunately, I have today agreed to sell my share in the horse. Sometimes things don’t work out and I will put this down to experience. Simply, I never should have bought into a horse with people I did not really know. Being partners with acquaintances was a bad idea in retrospect!
Anyhow, this experience has not blunted my enthusiasm to be an owner of a horse. Indeed, I am more keen now than ever to get involved. Next time though I will do it with the right people.
So, so long “Charlie” I was one of the owners who had you gelded mate for which I apologise but never got to see you run. Go you good thing!
