“Apparently being born on 7th November could give her a lucky start…”

Backworth welcomed the visit from a Hong Kong delegation last week, organised through the enthusiastic efforts of Peter Gibson from Racing South Africa.

They braved the rain and thick mist to join us for drinks and a visit to the stable yard, but sadly just missed a foaling - King’s Chapel / Collection Prive.

Contact from the returning bus kept sms’ing through names for our new filly! Apparently being born on 7th November could give her a lucky start, so we are thinking that Seven Eleven should be her name! Another suggestion was Hong Kong Mist (missed?!)

We are so appreciative of these visits by interested people from the international community, and look forward to welcoming many more!
