In response to William Milkovitch: The lack of sensible tactics
I feel it would be remiss of me not to reply to your comments re: Potala Palace’s tactics for the Dingaans.
Back home and in all preparations for the Dingaans, Potala Palace was settled in as this is the way in which I wanted him to be ridden.
Gavin Lerena was on board on every occasion when he was settled behind and taught to run at his companion.
On Dingaans day all I asked Gavin was: Have you worked your game plan out, his reply was a swift yes.
So Mr William Milkovitch as much as it was a mystery to you why Potala Palace led the field it was an even bigger shock to me.
In Gavin’s defence we all make mistakes and are only human after all. He loves Potala Palace as if he were his own child. I have all the faith that Gavin will put it all right in the near future.
PS: My assessment of the Apache’s run was that from that draw he would have no other option but to be handy and I am pretty sure he will be back to redeem himself.
