Plus 6 and dry when driving in.

What a shocking day yesterday was.. The weather I mean..

Never have I seen Warwick so heavy.. or as holding.. Pond Road hated it and pulled up like most of the horses in his race. Our other intended runner Bobhopeornohope never left the racecourse stables.

It was a long night and I am rather bleary eyed this morning. I did not stay awake all night..I am pleased to say I still have a job, as do my staff.. and my jockeys.. and I still have a business this morning..Nothing worse than uncertainty..

Robert and Anne Briggs and Jane Currill and Judith Woolliams were all here for a morning on the gallops and breakfast as a result of meeting Peter and Maddie at Ascot a couple of weeks ago.

We have two runners today at Cheltenham, where they have missed most of the rain.. The ground was still described as good to soft at 6am this morning... Imperial Aura and Dandy Dan run there and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.

Cheltenham Tattersall’s sales again later.. after racing.. Not the best of catalogue but who knows.

AN IRISH BLONDE IN A CASINO.. as sent over by a female reader...

An attractive blonde from Cork, Ireland arrived at the casino. She seemed a little intoxicated and bet twenty-thousand Euros on a single roll of the dice.

She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely naked."

With that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and with an Irish brogue yelled, "Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!"

As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and squealed: "YES! YES! I WON, I WON!"

She hugged each of the dealers and then picked up her winnings (and her clothes) and quickly departed.

The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded. Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?"

The other answered, "I don't know - I thought you were watching the dice."


Not all Irish are drunks.

Not all blondes are dumb.

But all men....are men.
