    The problem is they get so much racing media attension these days, what else can they say, that has not already said.
    "Sick as a parrot, over the moon" in football.

    When I were a lad, people used to say "you’ve got to give 100%". Ten years later it was "you’ve got to give 101%". Now it’s you’ve got to give 110%". It does not change much.

    One day Inglis Drever is a monster, the next day Denman is a moster. Tank is a good one though.

    There is the classic Aiden O’Brien interview about seemingly every horse in his care, "he shows so much speed". Stravinsky, Hawk Wing, Galileo, may be, but Brian Boru, Yeats? What I think he is really saying is "look, i’m going to say anything that might increase his value at stud, so I am".

    value is everything

    One of Spinal Tap’s magnificent amplifiers (whose maximum goes up to 11 on a notional scale of 1-10 ) is the first known example of this mathematical anomaly. :D
