Morning News

e5882c16ffe8b05f142cd336a67f9bf5Good morning...

After a nice few days off,

It was nice to see such a good result for the Boxing Day racing.

I hope that you all had a great Christmas...

Although I hope you didn't eat quite as much I managed to do.

I'm avoiding the scales for the next few weeks.

Anyway, enough of my weight problems, let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Something to make you laugh

From David O.

British Humour

I saw my mate Charlie this morning, he's only got one arm bless him.

I shouted - "Where you off to Charlie?"

He said, "I'm off to change a light bulb."

Well I just cracked up, couldn't stop laughing, then said,

"That's gonna be a bit awkward init?"

"Not really." he said. "I still have the receipt, you insensitive bastard."


Went out last night and got really wasted.

I woke up this morning next to a fat old bird who was snoring and farting ... so, at least I got home OK.


The wife's back on the warpath again.

She was up for making a home video last night, and all I did was suggest we should hold auditions for her part.


Angela Merkel arrives at Passport Control in Athens airport.

"Nationality?" asks the immigration officer.

"German," she replies.


"No, just here for a few days."


As the coffin was being lowered into the ground at a Traffic Warden's funeral, a voice from inside screamed:

"I'm not dead, I'm not dead. Let me out!"

The Vicar smiles, leans forward, sucking air through his teeth and mutters,

"Too late, mate, the paperwork's already done."


I woke up this morning at 8.00 and could sense something was wrong.

I got downstairs and found the wife face down on the kitchen floor, not breathing! I panicked. I didn't know what to do.

Then I remembered - the local cafe serves breakfast until 11.30.


"Jesus Loves You."

Nice to hear in church, but not in a Mexican prison.


Got caught having a pee in the local swimming pool today.

The lifeguard shouted at me so loud I nearly fell in.



Today's early test ratings show 26 rated races from four meetings.

Have a great day's racing!
