be with the best of intentions (jokes aside) and science. The composition of the soil at Haydock is black and loamy. It holdswater. Great if you want to grow carrots but as for horse racing, has meant that the course has almost literally been bogged down by its predisposition for quickly turning the going to ' heavy'repeatedly and making any groundsmans job very difficult. Ironically, it was an attempt to alleviate the situation that has given Maurice and his team surely one of the biggest challenges over andabove the normal problems faced by any racing groundstaff.Regular racegoers may know that May 2007 saw the beginning of a 4 year track redevelopment programme at the ground costing a total of 2.5million pounds. The aim was to give a complete overhaul tosport be it racing or football or rugby, is a major undertaking giving rise Miu Miu Bow Embellished Tote

But it is Maurice and his colleagues who are the unsung heroes of the racing world and whose behind the scenes work is vital to the likes of you and me enjoying a day's racing.For Lancastrian Maurice, originally from Ashton in Makerfield, is head groundsman and estates manager at Haydock Park Racecourse, one of the leading racetracks in the North West of England.It is his remit not only to ensure that the course is fit for racing on race days but he also has the weighty responsibility for the safety and upkeep of every outdoor space at Haydock Park, whichis no mean challenge, for at 250 acres, Haydock is one of the largest racecourses in the country.Maurice is the first to point out that the amount of work required to do the job is not down to him alone. " I have a great bunch of lads working alongside me. Each one knows what is expected ofhim and they just get on with it."Maurice's "cast" of lads comprises of some 13 staff of which one is a 'mechanic', one a 'painter', two are 'gardeners' and nine are 'groundsmen' but under Maurice's refreshingly no nonsenseapproach to his work, labels don't exist and if for example a problem crops up, then in Miu Miu Studded Leather Shoulder Bag true Lancastrian style, "we all just muck in and get on with it"He began his career in 1971 as a fence builder, an Miu Miu Biker Bag Price

I used to come down here when I was just 14 when Haydock had its own railway station."I'd play on 'The Heath' and watch the horses. I even had a few lessons. I feel very lucky that I was taken on at Haydock."After learning how to build fences, I became a tractor driver every boy's dream and then helped out with every conceivable job there was, doing I suppose what was a good, old fashioned, time Someone had just left Maurice's on site 'office' (more a garage or as they call them round these parts, an 'outhouse') with an oily, concrete floor, functional old, melomine desk and the currenteagerly awaited trade magazines that, after a quick flick through, leave me about as cold as the heavily stained mug of tea on the corner.It transpires his visitor was Mike Kilblain one of the John Deere representatives who liaises with Maurice over the five tractors that have recently been purchased.At the other, management end of his job, he is on call 24/7 and naturally he can be seen as public enemy number one if the racecourse loses a meeting.But despite all his experience, even Maurice hasn't yet found a way of being able to control the weather. Even though, like other racecourses, Haydock pays a fee to a meteorologist to try topredict the weather, we all know how accurate those forecasts can Miu Miu Wallet Price
