So , while this toff is being played out , no one has mentioned Owners and what is going to be done in the way of assisting them or ate they just expected to suck it up ?!! Are the incentives given by Phumelela to trainers filter down to Owners ? Are the Vets and Farriers going to reduce their fees ?!! Racing is in diabolical trouble and unless everyone pulls together , when this situation returns to some form of normality there will be a lot less Owners !! Just think of the Dominoe effect

If you have credit insurance on your home loans, car, credit card etc these, to my knowledge, will kick in.

Day 6 – Why Aren’t They Talking?

Another plan I would consider if I was an awake administrator, is to shift or extend the Durban season 30 days back.

In other words, run the July on the 1st August or on the 25th

Michael, good to hear... it's six days in and I'm struggling with exercise.

I went for a long, innocent, illegal walk last Friday, late afternoon and return and 8:10PM.

But I won't chance it again ! I almost got arrested. They were reasonable though.

No golf, football, not even a snakes & ladders tournament

Seattle Slew, your curve ball is my curve ball !

You're right because when you have such a brilliant filly like Empress Club, she just could decide that she won't want to be left out in a tight finish 1200 or 800...

They are pack animals right, so your point is taken with her been such intelligent
