Plus 10 and dry when driving in.
We had 14mm of rain yesterday morning which was very welcome and needed but something that certainly put a smile on all our faces and far more welcome was a winner at Market Rasen on Saturday with By The Boardwalk.
Good old BTBW, at last.
BTBW finally had things go his way and with Tom Bellamy, his regular rider, getting a well timed run up the home straight BTBW went on to be a worthy winner. Owner John Perriss and my Assistant Mat Nichols had a great day and this made the journey home a very happy one.
Market Rasen, even if Chairman Bud Booth was away, was as always, very welcoming .
I was at Ascot on Saturday with Dermot Clancy amongst others. Tony Solomons’s (owns half of Harry Topper)horse Nearly Caught ran a blinder in the first and the whole day was as good as flat racing can get. Huge crowds and fabulous racing. Champions Day was certainly Champions day in all respects.
Sadly their TV viewing figures were disappointing, but the good news is that I bumped into Ed Chamberlain the main presenter of the New ITV racing and he was very bullish about the future with their new line up and team.. I hope he is right as we certainly need that to be the case.
Trojan Star and Kempton yesterday. Trojan Star was not is a going mood.. Probably something amiss.
So ended a difficult week and the yard cat returned with a smile, although rubbing his sore backside, but happy to be off the roof.
Ruby Walsh won the American Grand National on Rawnaq
I rather enjoyed Ben Ellis’s remark in today Racing Post.. ''The American Grand National is 2miles 5 furlongs and over hurdles? Shouldn't be surprised about a country that calls rounders baseball, football soccer and padded up rugby football..''
David Bass around and we worked and jumped Charbel, The Last Samuri, Younevercall and Dueling Banjos.
We have no runners today
Hugh Bone sent this one over.. Japanese Sex..
Husband: “ Sukitaki. Mojitaka.”
Wife replies: “Kowanini! Mowi Janakpa!”
Husband says angrily: “ Toka a anji! Rodi roumi yakoo! “
Wife, on knees, literally begging: “Mimi Nakoundinda tinkouji! “
I can’t believe you just sat there trying to read this. You don’t know any Japanese.
You’ll read anything as long as it’s about sex ..........Sometimes I worry about you.
You’re in serious need of help.
