Argh, three horses put down in the jumping races at Ellerslie today. Jockeys coming back without their horses and crying. I can't handle this.

Desperately sorry to hear this. It's heartbreaking and I cannot imagine being there and having to cover it. Just very sorry for all involved and I hope the three horses were released from pain quickly

We needed to have some great racing today to help us recover from Monday, and we've got it. Lovely 2yo performances by Elusive State and Sophia Magia, and how good was Underthemoonlight?

Loving the racing in Brisbane today too. It's been amazing so far. Although that performance from VSB was too bad to be true. Hope he's okay.

So proud of Benzini and Sacred Elixir! That was a sensational win by Sacred Elixir in particular.

I'm glad!

Back from Hawaii, it was frigging AWESOME and moved my Adriatic cruise (leaving from Venice and across the Adriatic to Rovinj, Split and Dubrovnik (Croatia), Bay of Kotor (Montenegro), and then down and around through Sicily and Italy (strait of Messina,Giardini Naxos, Capri, etc) and back up on the other side of Italy again then flying back to Croatia (Zagreb) and might head up to Ljubljana (Slovenia)... moved England to later in the year so be back by the Fall or Spring there. I am taking my extended break from horsies but will check when back and hope there are nice updates on Iamishwara etc. Honestly the one day I did decide to look at horsie stuff I saw that Align had died and just thought oh... I am happier spending the summer not reading any of it at all.

I will be back to my addiction in a couple of months, my friend, so continued good luck and affection to you.
