Glad to hear it Athletico!

I think you could be right too. I thought she had gone too early but she just kept going like a train.

I had the privilege of being at Sandown that day. My money was on Rondetto based on the weights. It was a truly magical day as described in the article. There was a loud and continuous ovation for the horses as they passed the stand for the first time but what followed was amazing. Mill House out jumping Arkle and Arkle catching him in a few strides. The Arkle went off on his winning run. Glad I was there: unbelievable stuff.

Indian Skimmer on the flat for the smashing of Miesque

tunwhu. Fantastic shout that one.

Thousands of British punters backed Indian Skimmer over here and then went over to France for the race.
She smashed the brilliant French filly.
We all got a free, fantastic weekend away thanks to Indian Skimmer.

Frankel wouldn't have beat her that day.

Re: Horse racing
tanman... I think the whole of my office at the time was on Alderbrook... I think it's the only time my work MATE came up trumps... he was on at 33's as was his Dad and a few others ITK... rest of us were on at single digits... we had a bloody good drink up after work that day

Re: Horse racing
Dublin Flyer trained by Tim Forster in the early 90s was a favourite of mine. Make a Stand's front running victory in the Champion hurdle was a great performance and ride by McCoy. I also backed Alderbrook for his Champion and can still remember the commentary from Graham Good - at the top of the hill "Alderbrook the novice is absolutely cruising". I can still remember the Sun writing an article the morning before Alderbrook ran in the race before the Festival (the Kingwell Hurdle) saying that it was available at around 33s for the big race )possibly even 50s) and with it's flat speed could spring a surprise. I thought, I will have to have a tenner each way on that. I was playing golf that day so I never made it to the bookies. The next day I opened the paper the next morning to read it had won the Kingwell by about 5 lengths and was suddenly close to favourite for the Champion Hurdle. These days with mobile phones the bet would have been made. I backed it around 6-1 on the day but made small amount compared to what I would have had I made it to the bookies before the Kingwell.

Now there’s a one-off !! I saw Scurlogue Champ do similar at my home track (Ramsgate -now sadly a garden centre) he was more like a small horse than a dog !! Breathtaking manner of racing which must have involved an extraordinary degree of intelligence.

Around the same time we also had the treat of Ballyregan Bob, completely opposite style going all the way. Saw him equal the world record ( something like 30 wins on the spin ) at Harringay. 6 dogs in a pack going to the first bend at which point it was like he was launched from a cannon !!
