Stakes Day

November 7th, 2015 0 comments

Not looking good! Heavy 8 on arrival, then an upgrade to Soft 7. By the end of the day they were coming down the outside rail! I’m no good in the wet. I didn’t have a bet all day. Discipline!

By the way, I noticed a couple of interesting bits of gear this week. Max Dynamite, the cult horse, displayed the rarely seen earplugs on Cup Day. And Arod, like many of the international horses, had a fluffy woollen pad under the cross-over noseband. You would have to think that’s a positive as it would reduce pressure on the bridge of the nose.
