Now fingers crossed for a repeat performance tonight!
Have you noticed the multitude of kitteny names in the US that are given to horses? I'm struggling to see the connotations. I can understand Panther (pouncing at the last minute) or tiger (brave, game and fierce) but kitten (cute, fluffy and cuddly?)?
Nope, I'm not getting it. Or do you think that more of the US owners let their daughters choose their racehorses names.....
....back to the matter in hand and I've reconsidered by stance on dirt! As in yesterday I wouldn't entertain a runner who hadn't previously run on the substance despite their breeding and pedigree! London Bridge bit me on the bum there so I'm hoping that Ms Hughes has given Mr O'Brien the benefit of her wisdom (hehe - girl power!) and have opted for Declaration of War over Game On Dude in the big one. In reality, I will probably back both though!
