ARE we set for a week of social festivities and highlights, or what?

When you read this, Summerhill’s Stud’s Ready To Run gallops will be only a day or two away and many guests are looking forward to it as a social occasion as much as an opportunity to spot a champion of the future.

On Friday night, when the gallops are over, many friends, colleagues and business associates will discuss Saturday’s Rugby World Cup final as they eagerly await the evening kick-off.

A host of them, at Summerhill, will be glancing periodically at their notebooks in which the names of several “good movers’’ from earlier in the day will be jotted down. Roll on Ready To Run Sale, 4 November!
