Archie and I went over to see Martin Jones yesterday afternoon. Martin is breaking in the No Risk At All 3 year old gelding I bought at Goffs last week..I had never heard of the sire No Risk At All when I bought this horse but this is what he has done with his first crop of runners.. only 8 so far, so a sire to follow?

The teacher repeated the process, touching another drop of the leakage to her tongue. "Is it champagne?" she asked.

"No," the boy replied.

The boy replied, "A puppy!"
