I was going to blog two things today:
a) Rio de la Plata has a good chance in the 3.10 @ Newmarket
b) The Jigsaw Man is reportedly some tool and is expected to take the last at Cheltenham
As I looked at the cards there was the news that Inglis Drever was euthanised this morning after going down in his field yesterday with colic.
I am very gutted about this. He was only 10 and as his trainer said he hardly had a retirement to speak of. Howard Johnson also said the little horse had been his “pride and joy”. He gave me loads of pleasure too and it is a sad day indeed. I’m afraid my heart’s not in it.
