Strangest/Funniest thing ever seen on a racecourse? Again a bit young for many yet but one someone told me about was JPL again early in his career - jumping in front of Nasrha (the biggest heaviest horse he has ever trained) at Carlisle after she lost her jock early in the race as he knew she was entered up a few days later and could run again fresh ok if he got her stopped in front of the stands - it was never going to work and he was mown down Emily Davison style which could very well have been the end of that tale........
What or who really annoys you? Lazy people - with my terrier mind I just don't get them
Happy Christmas everyone... I’ll be on the lookout for Santa and his Reindeer's tonight!
