Thank you for schooling him so well.
Kindest regards.

Frikkie paid a visit to Jill Fox’s The Fort Stud this morning on a routine trip to visit some prospective horses to train.  He mentioned that he met Arcanum’s family and said to tell you that he was very impressed with your Mogok filly, Hey Sugar.  He also mentioned that he had seen your mare, Jean Bean, who is also doing exceptionally well.
 
He was very impressed with Jill’s set up and commented that she runs a very professional show and said that you can be rest assured your horses are in the best possible care.
 
Kind regards
