Postcard from Goondiwindi

September 11th, 2011 2 comments

Heading north, but hopefully back for the Caulfield Guineas. Here I am at the home of the Goondiwindi Grey, Gunsynd. 54 starts for 29 wins and $280,455 in prizemoney. The winner of four big miles: the Toorak, the Epsom, the George Adams,and the Doncaster. And the 1972 Cox Plate. What a horse! Go the grey!

    Glad to hear you’ll be back soon. Missed your updated during the start of the spring season. I say Efficient in his stall kicking the back wall on the weekend…what do you think that indicates?

  2. Geoffrey says:

    Horses might kick for a lot of reasons. They might be in pain, sore, injured, frustrated, angry, overaroused, moody or plain cantankerous. I never know the cause but regard it as a bad sign and do not bet on such horses.
