If you are signed up to the attheraces website (its free) def have a look if you are interested, very good race.

Hurricane Fly wasnt as impressive as normal, Ruby said he didnt travel well. He was being niggled from bout 4 out.

The horse I was most impressed with today was a lovely grey called Champagne Fever (also Ruby/Mullins) - he is a serious battler... when he looked legless, I swear you could see the determination in his eyes and he just kept fighting back.

My fav part of all was the parade of OTTBs beforehand, led by Denman. They parades for bout a half hour to promote the use of TB's after racing. Denman looked a picture, as did Comply or Die.

...... Not that I get enthusiastic about Cheltenham or anything.....
I must look up that website - some of these things wont work in the US and just say 'not available'
My one Gran lived in Prestbury so its ingrained in me as I was born there. My uncle lived and breathed racing and I'm pretty sure he haunts that racecourse!!!
The Irish will be well celebrating by the sound of it!!!
Just looked and I think that race is on Youtube already so maybe the OTTB parade's on there too

I knew about your accident, hence my question lol!

Is it your smart arse skills or critiquing skills you've been practicing?? :)

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Don't they go hand in hand??
Although... I would say I'm pretty good with Smart Arse ones.

Yes, I would highly recommend NOT playing chicken with a semi.
That one is mine alone.

Your going to have to give up doing everything better than everybody else... can you not just lightly tip into somebody else like the rest of us?? :)

Ha! I'm like Evel Knevel crossed with that dude from Jackass. It's ALL extreme for me!
Even when I bucked off - my sister, she can do a flip in the air and land on her feet - Me? No, I land in/on fences, or break bones as I land on my back or my head. LOL
Definitely some weird genetic flaw...

Hope you catch all the mice! Having them in the house is no fun! I'm not a fan of them at the best of times (they're cute... in pictures), let alone in the house.

Reading this thread was awesome!
I've driven through Franks Slide several times. We used to live in Bonners Ferry ID and then we moved back to SK. A couple trips were made with horses and much household and shop stuff (11 kids=LOTS of stuff). It (Franks) is pretty cool!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
