You are either brave or stupid, Boss Hogg. 

But also very funny. 

I too watched it the other night (First dates Australia), "only because the wife was watching it." 

Laura's date... poor bloke. Took off before acceptances, only to be shot down by her at the end. 

His last start formline reads: 

"Slow away, made ground, faced breeze, plugged, found nothing, choked down."

Only good thing was, he didn't bleed. 

Trainer to be questioned about performance. 

Required to trial and vet clearance required prior to next raceday start.

I felt a tad sorry for the poor beggar when I watched the video Baz posted but I think full credit to Laura for the way she handled a potentially awkward conversation with class. She was honest and went to the point of being self-deprecating in order not to crush the poor beggar completely and I think she let him down as gently as possible given the circumstances. Tough as teak as a jockey but obviously kind-hearted too and as a top jockey once told me "Be kind to horses and they'll be kind to you too." I hope plenty of horses are kind to Laura in her comeback.
