Starts tomorrow.

As always, i can't wait to see Frankel, a true great.

Also hoping Dragon Pulse can take down Power

Oh, and on Saturday, there's the small matter of Black Caviar:



"Jeez i'm good, no i'm not good, i'm the best you've ever seen in the world!"

Can't wait.

Good luck everyone

I think everyone should be honoured that in their lifetime they have seen such a horse as Frankel

It is extremely doubtful whether we will ever, ever see anything like it again

In our old age people with an interest in horse racing will ask "Did you ever see Frankel ?" and you can smile and say "Yes"

He is just outrageous and there are not enough superlatives to describe him
"A Noble Spirit Embiggens the Smallest Man"

Agree totally, he's a truly special animal. I've only been following racing for less than 10 years but i'll never see a greater racehorse.

It's almost as if Quelly just has to jump on his back and hold on for dear life :lol:

Any idea what time the Black Caviar race is mate? Need to make sure I catch it.

There must be lights burning brighter, somewhere...

What a total joke of a stewards enquiry in the Ascot Gold Cup yesterday.

I felt the interference was suffiecient to merit a switching of the placings.

Had my bet on Colour Vision two weeks ago. Really faniced it after seeing such an impressive win at Kempton AW. Great ride by Frankie, I felt the distance he won by was enough to be a worthy winner re the stewards enquiry.

Don't know if that was just a bad run, or tiredness from travelling etc but not overly impressed with that run tbh. Another 20 yards and it would have had its first defeat.......

I presume you backed the second placed horse ? The fact that they were both Godolphin horses ensured that Barzalona never rocked the boat I reckon.
