    Gold Circle and Grass Management, someone at comedy central should put a skit together

    When there was a problem with the pull up area of the All weather track,Mr. Hawkins said it was because of the RAIN.
    Now when there is a problem with the start to racing it is blamed on the HEAT( What difference would it have made if the grass shavings were scattered before the horses went down to the start?)
    And when the driver did not notice a major oil leak,that caused a discoloured strip of the grass, it was blamed on the WIND
    Remember this?
    “Blame it on the rain that was falling
    Blame it on the stars that did not shine at night
    Whatever you do don’t put the blame on you”
    Milli Vanilli
    But then we all know what Milli Vanilli turned out to be..
