Glamour Puss settles in well at Kingsclere in the UK

Glamour Puss has settled in well following her trip to the UK. She is stabled in the illustrious surrounds of Kingsclere Stables where UK trainer Andrew Balding is based.

She handled the flight over with minimal disturbance and she was very bright and alert the day after her arrival. The arduous trip is always a concern and it was very encouraging to all to hear how well she shaped up on her arrival in the northern hemisphere.

Kingsclere has been the home of some of the legends of the turf, no more influential than the amazing Mill Reef, who is still found in the pedigrees of some of the stallions that dominate the world today.

Please find a link to their website at Kingsclere where you can see the amazing facilities they have on offer.

She has been accompanied by her long time groom Julie Guerrisi who is overseeing her program ahead of Danny's arrival later this week. Julie can be seen on Glamour Puss in this photo taken of her during a morning at Kingsclere.
