It’s World Kindness Day today and what better way to be kind than to congratulate some of our graduates on their successes this week for WellDoneWednesday.

But if you know somebody that’s doing a good job why not tell them, it could make their day!

However, neither of these jockeys would have horses to ride if it wasn’t for the stable staff who care for and ride these horses everyday as well as travel them to the races. A winner for them means as much, if not more, so Congratulations to ๐—–๐—ผ๐˜€๐—บ๐—ผ ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น (course 333a) who led up his first winner on Saturday when Chinese Whisperer won for Alan King at Wolverhampton.
