Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Well, we do seem to be on a winning streak at the moment.

Yesterday we might only have got a strike rate (for the top rated horse) of 38.89% but, it does come after the great strike rates of the preceding days...

41.46% Strike rate 13/01/18
30.30% Strike rate 12/01/18
41.18% Strike rate 11/01/18

Then again, January has always been rather king to the ratings.

I have to admit that I've been on a sort of extended Christmas break but...
There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes.

For the first time since I can remember, my personal email inbox is empty; the last time that happened there were dinosaurs walking the earth!

And I am working towards doing the same for the 2 Focus Ratings email inboxes.
Of course, there is still work to do with R5 but I hope to start reporting on R5 results from tomorrow.

There may be some other surprises this week but I don't want to jinx myself by detailing them; every time I promise you something, something comes up and puts a spanner in the works.

My new year's resolution is to deliver rather than promise.

Anyway, let's get on and take a look at yesterday's R4 results...

Here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results

Slide Down the Banister

As You Slide Down the Banister of Life, Remember:

1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written an impressive new book. It's called "Ministers Do More Than Lay People."

2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and be Mary.

3. The difference between the Pope and your boss...the Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.

4. My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.

5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.

6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once. The seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.

7. It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

8. A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives the impression that he just cleaned the whole house.

9. My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

10. A blonde said, "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was relieved when he told me all I needed was turn signal fluid."

11. I'm so depressed. My doctor refused to write me a prescription for Viagra. He said it would be like putting a new flagpole on a condemned building.

12. My neighbor was bit by a stray rabid dog. I went to see how he was and found him writing frantically on a piece of paper. I told him rabies could be treated, and he didn't have to worry about a Will. He said, "Will? What Will? I'm making a list of the people I want to bite."

13. Definition of a teenager? God's punishment for enjoying sex.

14. As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way.


Another one just for good measure!

Good Advice

I hope that this will once again confirm that the most important information in your life won't come from a teacher, the library or the internet, but from a mentor, and on a very personal level.

My long-passed grandfather's birthday is coming up, and for me it is a time to reminisce. The long walks we used to take. The long drives.The special trips he would make to pick me up so I could spend weekends with him, and the advice he used to give!

Much was wasted because I was young when he died. If he were alive today and sharing his pearls of wisdom, I'd be a better man.

Those gems were well and good, but the one I remember most, the jewel in the crown of grandfatherly advice, came when I was on 12. We were sitting in a park, watching children and their mothers enjoying a beautiful spring day. He told me that one day, I'd find a woman and start my own family.

"And son," he said, "be sure you marry a woman with small hands."

"How come, Grandpa?" I asked.

"It makes your pecker look bigger."

Kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?


Today's early test ratings show 19 rated races from three meetings.

Every race is rated.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
