Winner’s on the blog….. Hope sunday is good too!


Charles was off yesterday so I stepped up & put a few of interest up, sadly no Peoples Nap….. But there were a few winners….. Back to normal service today!

With the final day of the National Hunt season(Saturday) it is only right that we congratulate Nicky Henderson & his Seven Barrows team on their fine season winning the Trainer’s Title in the UK. Also a Big hand goes to Paul Nicholls & his team for a Cracking season in 2nd place. While over in Ireland, Willie Mullins, pulled a rabbit out of the hat to pip Gordon Elliott in the final strides of the Irish Season, Congratulation’s to everybody involved for a thrilling National Hunt season. Charles had predicted that both Henderson & Mullins would win their respective championship’s back in October in a page on our site called The 3 Wise Men! While that now takes a back seat the Flat season will soon be in full swing with the Guineas not too far away…….
