    Date For The Messara Report Release

    I got that 96 pages info second hand, I wouldn’t take it too seriously / literally. Anyway we’ll all just turn to the exec summary, read that, ask a patsy question, have a cup of tea, and go home

    Dangerous life of a Jockey

    A beautiful story. The most impressive part of which is how he empathizes with the horse, the “I’ll take care of you, and you take care of me” connection. The great jockeys do that, but sadly too many jockeys, riders, horse people still think horses can be bullied and beaten. I also wonder how the many harsh jockey critics out there feel when they read that, noted most of them have migrated elsewhere, but I’m sure their ignorant and toxic attitudes remain.

    Unbelievable What a Champion

    Yes, I’m inclined to be a bit cynical but I’m a disciple, she’s the best I’ve ever seen, and we’ll never see a 7yo mare doing that to a G1 field again.

    Harsh penalty

    Just shows how dangerous it is to give multi vitamin injections raceday though, if they’ve got VB12 in them. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2018/aug/14/robin-bastiman-banned-racing-three-years-bha

    Riccarton Results

    Have to agree with Phillipe.....it’s a bit bizarre when you want to reward mediocrity and punish excellence.....next thing you’ll be voting Labour. Whatever happened to inspiration, ambition, and a thirst to be the best ?

    The Curragh

    She was great again, but as is the way sometimes in France they only went along at a nice three quarter the first 800m. I’d love to own her though, when you get a good genuine mare they’re diamonds

    The Curragh

    This is what I wrote about Alpha Centauri on June 23, and given that I’m the best judge around it follows that when I label one they’re definitely the real deal Anyone see her win The Coronation last night ? Go watch the video, she’s a serious horse, and she broke the track record but 1.5 seconds !!
  11. Someone set up a book so we can have a bet, I’ll back myself to beat this lot if anyone will give me 50/1

    Lazarus

    I don’t know anything about gypsies, but I watched the race and I’m a bit bemused by the reports that he won easily, he looked fully extended to me. Any thoghts ?

    My only bet for today.......

    Living the dream....... Are you embarrassed and humiliated after yesterday ? That thing is greener than the grass it ran on, head high in the run ( did flatten out late though ), crabbed sideways, hung left, and ran nearly a second slower than the sprinters......you’ve got no idea, although you’re entertaining.
