Well, what a weekend of racing. Better than sex some would say. Alright Postponed didn’t win the Arc like predicted but that AP O’Brien 1-2-3 was nuts. Luckily i’d punted them all each way so it eased the Postponed blow, who looked as though his season’s work had finally caught up with him after a below par run into 5th or 6th. However Ryan Moore certainly silenced myself and a lot of other critics with a perfectly timed run on the 7/1 shot and guided her to victory, followed home by fellow stablemates Highland Reel and Order of St George. Absolutely mental. A few hours down the line the pandemonium had eased a bit and we were awaiting one of my favourites, Limato. Today had been a graveyard for favourites espiecally odds on one’s but Limato wasn’t having any of it. He powered home to win by 3 lenghts and I was celebrating nearly as emphatically as Harry Bentley was as he crossed the line. Get in. The previous day was also a cracker, as we saw last years superstar sprinter Shalaa return to the winners enclosure for the sixth consecutive time I believe, in a Group 3 at Ascot. We also saw the absolute monster that is California Chrome destroy a field at Santa Anita. CC looked monstrous
and barely broke sweat when brushing aside Dortmund, surely that 6/5 ante post price for the Breeders Cup Classic is a steal?!
