I didn’t preview our pin-up’s chances yesterday. It was hardly worth saying really – if he runs he wins. Which he did, and better than in other races. This is likely due to him, in his trainer’s words, being a heavier specimen than he has been before i.e. he is still maturing and almost remarkably improving!
Now we can continue the somewhat will-he-won’t he tortuous dance to the Arc, or the Champion Stakes at Newmarket, or the Breeder’s Cup at Santa Anita. Wherever he goes, whatever he does it will all very much be for posterity and I for one would not fancy that responsibility – I therefore wish John Oxx and the Tsuis all the luck in the world with their magnificent charge and hope to catch him somewhere (I hope over 10f!)soon.
This blog post is very sadly dedicated to the memory of two young apprentices, Jan Wilson and Jamie Kyne, who needlessly lost their young lives in a fire in Malton on Saturday.
