Plus 12 and damp when driving in.

It was certainly damp at Perth last night. Heavy rain showers changed the ground and decimated the crowd attendance. I am not going to use that as an excuse for Sonneofpresenting not winning.. He was beaten into a close third. A length and a short head..He still ran well. But?

Back at Thorndale David and Carol Crompton were here second lot this morning to see his KBRP horse Dusty Pearl.

Back at Perth today with Red Spinner and Goodwood with Sunblazer.. Any further rain would certainly ruin both horses chances. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.,

Remiss of me not to wish TNDGB a very happy birthday yesterday.. he really is catching me up..

Roger Hart is a man with a sense of humour.. he sent this text over yesterday..'Poor DB (David Bass)having to cycle all the way to Perth.. Good job it is an evening meeting'. Just in case you had missed the news.. DB has lost his driving license for 3 months..

SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN IN LAS VEGAS

A southern gentleman went to Las Vegas . Sitting in a cocktail lounge, and sipping on some bourbon, he beckoned the waitress and said quietly,

"Miss, y'all sure are a luvly, luvly lady. Can ah persuade y'all to give me a piece of aass?"

"Wow, that's the most direct proposition I've ever had!" gasped the girl.

Then she looked around the room, smiled and said, "Sure, why not?

You're an attractive guy too, and it's pretty slow here right now, so why don't we just slip away up to your room?"

When they returned half an hour later, the man sat down at the same table and the waitress smiled at him and asked, "Will there be anything else?"

"Why yes, " replied the southern gentleman. "Ah sure 'preciate what y'all just did for me. It was real sweet and right neighbourly of y'all. But where ah come from in Luzianna, we lahk our bourbon real cold, so ah still need a piece of aass for mah drink."
