What I know about horses in general and horse racing in particular would fit on the top of a pin.
Last Saturday I backed a horse at Randwick, but the horse - not being used to big-time events - got nervous and ran in the wrong direction.
Didn’t matter - in my ignorance, I backed it each way.
Here in the shire, we have a horse owner who is very parochial when it comes to naming his horses.
Take a look at these for example: Shire Flyer, Engadine and Helensburgh Ham (pictured).
The latter two have performed creditably; in fact, Engadine won last Sunday.
The owner is a lovely Engadine cove who could best be described as a quiet achiever.
In that context, I won’t say anything more than "well done, Bernie; do you need a co-owner; and it’s your shout ... again".
