I have to say I am overwhelmed by the support following the ‘Molly – No More’ post on the Sporting Post website.
David Mollett writes in the Sporting Post Mailbag that to have received over 50 posts is simply remarkable – of course not all were favourable, but that’s understandable and everyone is entitled to their opinion.
However, to have so many knowledgeable racing men in my corner – including Barry Irwin and Ian Jayes – is heartening for me and indicates that – over the years – I may have made a significant contribution to the sport.
Thanks, Gavin, for your comment “You are a legend”.
A couple of posts bring up how they miss Shaheen Shaw and they are 100% correct. When the two of us did evening UK racing the pools often exceeded R100000. This was down to Shaheen’s bubbly enthusiasm (“we’ve got to have a real go at Kempton tonite”) which got punters in the mood to bet.
I’d like to think that – if there is a changing of the guard – Shaheen could be persuaded to return to Tellytrack.
