Race with three Greys at Bonvilston proves popular with first time racegoers! [02:36]
One of the greys, Stoneriggs Merc, wins the race at 16/1 which was nice for several families I heard who placed small bets on it! One had not been racing since Desert Orchid as they had been abroad; but had clearly enthused their children with tales of the great grey! But watch the race through to the end. The staying on odds on favourite Kisha King is pressing him after the last; so Joseph Williams gives him a slap with the whip just to keep him going to the line. Now a small minority of people- often who have little interest in Racing or knowledge of horses worry about the whip. In fact; if you watch this video the horse comes right over to my camera and you can hear the whip and see the action close up. This should alleviate any worries - as you can see there is no way that the air cushioned whip has or can hurt or damage the horse in any way. So some say 'so why have it?' Well because horses are herd animals and use their teeth to communicate. A little nip administered by one horse will move the other horse on; or out of the way. Similarly the jockey uses the whip to keep a horse straight or keep it going or move him out of danger. Thus the stimulus of that tap of the whip has the same effect - the horse knows to keep going! As you can see from the video close up; the whip causes no problems for the horse who has a thick hair coat; but it understands to keep going. After all; while the horse clearly enjoys running; he does not know where the line is. You can see also ...

Eliza tips a 7/1 Winner! Russian flag [01:06]
Followers of my blog will remember my morning in Newmarket. The horse Neil King rode that morning was 'Russian Flag' and I tipped him to win at Sandown being a Course and distance winner! He was available at 8/1 and 9/1 and so I got lots of thanks from very grateful punters who followed my advice. They couldn't go wrong for the rest of the day from level stakes each race! Very apt so close to the Russian holiday 'Defenders of the Motherland' day especially as I had had breakfast that morning opposite the Russian Embassy!

Thought this was a great idea as though I can tell the general aura abot a horse in the Paddock I am not au fait with the specific ways of telling if a horse is fit. This would be a good idea to introduce at other courses imho !

Roger - A new life... [05:01]
Hey everyone, meet Roger! Our new rescue! We've had him for three weeks - I know, I've been tight lipped! He's 16.2, 7yo and been off the track for 5 months. He was raced successfully at the start of his career, but as they do, he started loosing races and was sacked and before long, headed for slaughter. We got to him one week before he was due to be taken for meat, got him home and got to work on him right away. He was very skinny, head to toe with the worst case of rainscald I've ever seen, and his coat was really bad nick. Medicated baths, worming, vaccs, farriers, ground work, and LOTS of feed later and he's ready to start ridden work, and today was the first ever ride. He has lovely, springy paces, and a really kind attitude towards work. Loves people and has lovely ground manners. He is going to be amazing with a bit of work put it - watch this space!!! Please NO CRIT on my riding, first time ever on this horse, and his first time back in work for a long while. I am working with a coach so I will get 'helpful tips' from her, I know where my faults are and are working on them, thank you :) Thanks so much everyone for all your support so far, I really love reading all your lovely comments so keep em coming!!! :) Thanks for all your subs and all your 'thumbs up's' :D Love u all xoxoxoxo
