Plus 5 and dry when driving in.
Yesterdays ground was a huge concern at Haydock and as a result we took Chazza out.
It is that time of year when racecourses are still trying to patch up ground from a heavy winter and the grass has not started to grow.. Racecourses are bare and ground has been put back with a mixture of sand and soil; hence the dust you see when watching racing on TV..
Sadly it can all too easily take its toll on horses legs and once damaged their careers suffer.. So my motto is ‘when in doubt pull out.’
Mrs B and I visited Martin Jones in the afternoon to see Keith and Liz Ellis's youngster.. Thruthelookinglass is heading this way later this week.
Thursday and our easy day and this time last year racing had stopped and we had started to let horses down for the summer. Now although racing is still in action we are about to start taking the rugs off a few of the younger horses who have done their bit this season.
We have three runners today .. well we hope to.. Donnie Brasco runs at Chepstow while Aliandy and El Presente head to Ludlow and for my thoughts please click here.
Alan Hill's .SEX AFTER DEATH
A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other if there is sex after death.
Their biggest fear was that there was no after life at all.
After a long life together, the husband was the first to die. True to his word, he made the first contact:" Marion .... Marion "
"Is that you, Bob?"
"Yes, I've come back like we agreed."
"That's wonderful! What's it like?"
"Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud - lots of greens). Another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to golf course again.
Then it's more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again"
"Oh, Bob! Are you in Heaven?"
"No -- I'm a rabbit in Andoversford.'.
