We went to Jedd O’Keefe’s yard a few years ago; went to meet Satanic Beat who was the a great favourite of the guy who took us on a tour of the Middleham stables. It was a lovely place; ducks and baby ducks were running in and out of the stables. There’s a very famous horse buried in one of his fields, but I can’t remember who it was. Either way, it’s a lovely place. Win or lose Sam Spinner has a lovely home; although, sadly Satanic Beat moved to France and hasn’t raced for a while, which is a bit ominous. I found the remains of a packet of polo mints that I’d taken for him in my wax the other day…..
