Dear little Magic Money; she ran well yesterday at Warwick and yes I hate being second, but frankly after her horrendous fall when she last ran at Fakenham I was just delighted she ran and jumped so well. Poor thing was very nervous before the race as was I.

It was good to be back at Warwick.. I enjoy racing there.

Jockeys Jason Maguire, David Bass and Tom Bellamy were in this morning. Tom and I were here for first lot then we headed north to Perth.

A woman went to the local newspaper office to have the obituary for her recently deceased husband published.

The obit editor informed her that there was a charge of 50 cents per word.

She paused, reflected, and then she said, "Well then, let it read: ‘Fred Brown died.’"

Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor told her that there was a seven-word minimum for all obituaries.

She thought it over and after a few seconds she said, "In that case, let it read, ‘Fred Brown died. Golf clubs for sale'
