    Sad to see that he has broken his upper arm in a fall today at Hereford.
    It will be intereseting to see who gets the leg up in the major races for Alan King. Wayne Hutchinson or will they go outside ?

    What rotten luck, especially given it was only last year that he did his knee in.

    Last time it happened, Wayne Hutchinson took the rides on all but the McManus horses so I don’t see why it would be any different this time round.

    Poor old Choc – possibly reaching the age where his ‘bouncability’ is not all it was.

    You think that’s bad?

    Have sympathy for Minatoro Nogueira last night at UFC 140, these are what you call atheletes.

    Not sure i’d call them athletes! It was a good recovery from Frank but he only popped the Minotaurs shoulder out of its socket!
    Hardly hittin the deck at 30 mph with a ton a horse about to snap your arm is it Chelters?

    I think this would be a more realistic interpretation of an athlete risking all. It is not for the faint-hearted so I give fair warniing if you are squeamish.

    This thread got a little off topic didn’t it?

    Sid Eudy never worked in the WWF under his Vicious moniker, using Justice in his first stint and Psycho in his second. As for him being an athlete, you clearly wasn’t much of a fan… more a mark.

    9/10 for the ramp.

    5/10 for the trolling because I responded.

    1/10 for Cormack still letting you post here but it’s his forum.
