It must break trainers hearts when a horse they have trained and educated move on to other stables and become top liners.

Anthony Cummings originally trained Might And Power.

We all know what he achieved.

He was also the trainer of Beauty Generation who raced hear under the name Montaigne.

I think he was fav for the derby but I cannot remember whether he started in it.

He went to Hong Kong and became one of their topliners under the name Beauty Generation.

Anthony May have lost another top horse but I cannot remember.

Vengeance of Rain became another topliner in Hong Kong 

He raced here under the name Subscribe and he won a race in Melbourne when Danny Nicolic rode him.

I think Lloyd Williams owned him when he was here.

Where’s Mine

Ubelievable    ????

Can someone tell me why our great champion from the depression has not a Group 1 named after him.

And can someone tell me why something unbelievable is BELIEVABLE  !!!!!! 

My golf ball landed in a bunker beside the green and a mate's ball landed in a bunker nearby. It took me eight shots to get out and only did so by playing to the side of the bunker, still not on the green.

My mate was in stitches, so I said your turn, smart @rse! He hit the ball at a thousand miles an hour. The flagstick shuddered and nearly snapped as the ball struck, and dropped to only a couple of inches from the hole.

I was still off the green and out of sheer embarrassment can't recall how many shots I took on that hole. If his ball didn't strike the flagstick, it would have ended up in Sydney Harbour.

On another occasion I had a few hours to spare so I decided  to have a hit. I played a hole that was only about 90 metres slightly downhill.

A guy was on his tee not far from my green. He called me to play and I completely miss-hit my shot which never left the ground and it rolled and rolled onto the green coming to rest a couple of feet from the hole.

The guy looked at me and shook his head. He hit his tee shot onto the wild blue yonder never to be found again.

As we neared each other he turned to see my ball on the green and said "I’m surprised the wind hasn’t blown your ball into the hole."

People And Horses

Was sticky beaking the other day.(again)

Was watching a newbie trying to put a bridle on,and the horse sticking his head up as high as he could to avoid the bridle.

It reminded me when I was learning years ago and the same thing happened to me.

The trainer said to me......

It’s ok,he wants to be a giraffe today.

Another memory I will never forget was when I was behind a  young horse steering  him with the long reins.

I was too busy sticky beaking(again)watching what others were doing when the horse stopped.I walked straight into his backside and he let go with both barrels.

We have to wear masks now with Covid.

At least now the women don’t know I’m ugly.

 

Slipper Hopefuls

Wonder if the Slipper horses have been able to get onto the track due to the weather.

Bet the Walking Machines have been getting a good workout.

Be interesting to see who swims young horses.

Comments from the leading trainers would be of interest to hear.also be interested to hear from anyone who may have swum or witnessed trainers swimming young horses.

Very curious to know.

I remember there was reports years ago of a horse trained by Tommy Smith that got lose at La Perouse and swam to Kurnell.

He was a pretty smart customer too.

Regal Rhythm was his name(5 y.o.at the time I think)

More likely he was trying to get away from Tommy.

 

 

 

 

Be interested to hear from anyone who has seen or heard funny or interesting happenings on the Racecourse.I think some of you would have some really stories.

I was in the Flat at Randwick years ago and someone dropped a ten bob note.I watched as just about everyone   In the Flat said it was theirs.It was hilarious to watch and I bet they are still fighting over it.
