There’s a maiden race named after this stallion today – 3.05 at the Curragh racecourse. It’s a great sounding race the Big Bad Bob Maiden over 6 furlongs. It’s a Big Bad Field too with 27 horses aged 3 and over with not a win between them (it being a maiden). Only a mad woman would be picking a horse to win this race, and I have that on Good Authority…
Thank god for the flat turf season – I was nearly at my wits end with all this awful weather and jumping malarkey.
Perhaps we can turn the corner into spring now with some proper racing \o/
