Thoughts on Aussie wondermare Winx

There’s no doubting she’s a great racemare in her native Australia and The World Thoroughbred  rankings don’t lie, her connections should have been braver  and raced her worldwide at Royal Ascot. Breeders Cup, Europe,, and Dubai I don’t’ buy this no travel bit absolute rubbish horses travel around the world frequently, think the real reason is they are running scared of her been beaten as the regular opposition is not good enough to beat her in OZ……

And it may be too late to race her worldwide as she will be heading to the breeding shed soon….

My thoughts on the ITV racing coverage



I watched the first live broadcast won’t be watching it anymore

I really dislike Matt Chapman as a presenter his style is like marmite you either love him or hate him I’m the latter his shout loud style was toe curling at times for me it’s a turn off and I was thinking the whole time just shut the f**k up I’m not interested in what you spout jumping up and down like a puppet on Red Bull…

I know it’s new and it needs a chance it needs to improve very quickly or it won’t last long .

my own rating 2/10

  • update  I watched it again because my sky dish is awaiting repair Matt Chapman is worse than ever the programme is boring no pre race/post race interviews rubbish presenters, Racing tv wins hands down so does Sky Sports Racing I know you have  to pay  but the output on both is quality

American pharoah has big race renamed in his honour
