AND THERE RACING

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

My uncle owns and trains racehorses and tomorrow the star galloper from his stable has it's first run back from a spell of almost 12 months. Now this is not an everyday run of the mill horse. He holds a very special place in our hearts as he is named after my grandfather. We were all together the last time he ran when he won, it was a special day for me as I just love the races and it gave me a first hand experience of what it would be like for an owner (if only for a short time). I have always wanted to own a race horse it's one of my dreams but unless I win the lottery can't see it happening.

Our horse is not expected to win and is at 33-1 , even though he won his last trial by six lengths I don't know what class he was running against. I'm still going to have a flutter on him for sentimental reasons, so wish us some luck!!

I am not a big Horse Racing fan and rarely have a bet, however a day at thr Races is always good fun but its a long time since I went.
I live close to York which has one of the best courses in the country (nicknamed Ascot of the North). In fact when Ascot was closed for renovation a couple of years ago they actually staged the "Royal Ascot" meeting there, the Queen loved it.

Wouldn't that be fun!? I have never been to horse race, but I think that would be alot of fun. Do you know the scene from My Fair Lady? When she's at the race track and she's screaming at the horses? I love that one. Take care.

Hope your family's horse wins! What a payoff that would be if he comes in first!

..Actualy come to think of it, a pug does sound a lot like Darth Vadar. Maybe Darth Vader really WAS a pug!!
