    How do you present the wrong horse?

  2. WILLIAM MILKOVITCH says:

    Mrs Hibbert – it’s easy. Please refer to America : Rule 14.3.7 for Kimberley

    I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
    It felt good to be out of the rain
    In the desert you can remember your name
    ‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain.

  6. WILLIAM MILKOVITCH says:

    It’s my way of coping with all the bad news, Gents & Lady.

    On a lighter note, it’s the Dante this week at York. Is Too Darn Hot gonna stay the 2100 metres ?

  7. Steve Reid says:

    The fines make sense.

    Identical amounts for two jocks sorting out issues in an age old tradition and which would have no effect on the betting public. along with a possible ringer being presented to race which could have had a massive effect on the betting public.

    You have got to love how out of touch the circus are with reality.

    Please have a look at the recent post where Mr Lensley tells his side of the story.
