Plus 13 and dry when waking in Doncaster.

Wow yesterdays trade was spectacular.. up 22% on last year.. Goffs were understandably delighted but it made buying bloody difficult. I came away with lot 53 and lot 231.. hopefully they will prove to be two good buys..

Back there today with the horses in training side.

David Bass was into ride out two lots this morning..

Harry Bailey heads off to Sydney today.. Life changing for him and I wish him the best.. I have to say I will miss him.

Thanks for the email Tom Bailey (no relation).. I have passed it on..

We have no runners today.

John Turner sent this one over..

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door.

The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push...

"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!"

He slams the door and returns to bed.

"Who was that?" asked his wife..

"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.

"Did you help him?" she asks.

"No, I did not, it's 3am in the morning and it's bloody pouring rain out there!"

"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us?

I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself! "God loves drunk people too you know.

The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.

He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"

"Yes," comes back the answer.

"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.

"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.

"Where are you?" asks the husband.

"Over here on the swing," replied the drunk..
