Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A pretty average day, yesterday...

Our Banker's Bet won and a certain football team beat City 2-1 to go back to 2nd place, only 2 points behind Leicester.

I was born in 1963 and the last time that Spurs were league champions was in 1961.

And now they're within a hair's breath of doing it again.

As you might have guessed, I wasn't really concentrating on the racing yesterday.

Obviously, they'll cock things up at the last moment, they always do!

But, for the next couple of months I'll be having this mad waking dream that Spurs might just be league champions sometime in my lifetime.

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

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 27.78%.

A Few Thoughts

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it's still on my list.

3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

5. War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

6. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

7. They begin the evening news with 'Good Evening, then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.

8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

9. I thought I wanted a career. Turns out, I just wanted pay checks.

10. In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, notify: I put "DOCTOR".

11. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

12. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street...with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

13. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.

14. A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.

15. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

16. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

17. There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can't get away.

18. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

19. You're never too old to learn something stupid.

20. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

21. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

22. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

23. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.


24. I'm supposed to respect my elders, but now its getting harder and harder for me to find one.


Today's early test ratings show 18 rated races from three meetings.

Have a great day's racing!
