Aintree was not quite the same without all the ladies in their dresses or lack of dresses. It is great to have owners back on the course and I hope things can move along fast in the right direction, talking to them over the rail isn’t ideal but better than nothing. Kateson ran a screamer and Competition just got tired having needed the run.
The less said about Sedgefield the better, it was a long drive home for Len as he had a blow out and flash cars don’t always have spares. I spoke to him when his car was being dragged onto a recovery truck. Len has seen more than most when it comes to horse racing and takes winning and losing in his stride. He ought to write a loo seat book of his racing memories as some are hilarious. He had a horse in a two horse race one day, the other fell and Len’s horse refused.
