Well done with Kew Gardens and Star Catcher Joni and a few unlucky ones in there.
Coronet just got fed up and stopped running according to Frankie and Anapurna had a slip going to post which would definitely have taken the wind out of her, The Revenant just didn’t like the ground but I was so pleased with the way Veracious ran I thought she was going to win 3 lengths ahead 1 furlong out but she did managed to come 4th and I had her EW at 28/1 with PP who paid on 4th in that race, it was a brilliant effort and I hope she stays in training next year but being a Cheveley Park she will probably be heading for stud now.
I guess you are now off on your travels until The Craven Meeting Joni and wish you a happy break and at least you had a few hoorays on the last big meeting of the season.
I’m going to Newmarket this Wednesday where they are holding a 100% 2yo card so for me it’s an opportunity to see if there are any potential stars for next season…and Darren if you’re tuning in here…I will report back after 2nd November when the last day of Newmarket is held. I’m staying down at Newmarket for Friday and Saturday with my daughter and really can’t wait…hope it doesn’t rain.
All good wishes Joni if this is your last post come back and beat the bank next season…
PS… A horse called Rolladice won the 4.30 Catterick on Saturday it seems you had a ‘Mystic Meg’ moment there JoniThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...October 21, 2019 at 01:48 #1472190hein bollowParticipant

Yes Joni, if I’m not too wrong you have pissed away almost half your gains from last season this term?!
If it had any effect I would still advise you not to play each and every Frankel progeny under the sun, but I had to learn this appeal remains completely unheard!
So I just hope you lick your wounds to return in the shape we all like to see you for next season
By the way, in the British races I wasn’t the biggest hero either, but at least I made some profits at home so farOctober 21, 2019 at 09:51 #1472201jackh1092Participant

I thought the flat season on the whole was pretty difficult this year. Not exactly sure why as the ground was probably more reliable throughout.

Thanks for all the messages guys. Been away for half-term with the family. Promise to post a review in the next few days but thought I’d have one last bit of fun for the season with the Melbourne Cup tonight.

Definite Oaks contender Nath. Bred in the purple and it was some performance to win that Listed race on his first start! Will stay all day and has serious credentials. But it’s a long time till June unfortunately mate!
The Melbourne Cup was my season in a nutshell. Frankie led everywhere but on the line. So near and yet so far. But he ran an incredible race and isn’t JOB showing himself to be a brilliant trainer?!

Any darkhorses for new season toNovember 6, 2019 at 23:55 #1474259
Sorry Darren will get my act together and get some over to you on Monday when I have a quiet day at work
I’m wondering what Joni is going for in the November Handicap for a last hurrah and also what Hein thinks of my choice Mildenberger EW, at least I spelt it right this time hein…JacThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...November 7, 2019 at 08:36 #1474266nwaltonParticipant

Just popped on to say thanks to Jonibake for tipping me up young master Fallon to win app title at the start of the year.
Not that you can get much on but it was good watching him throughout the season.November 7, 2019 at 12:10 #1474283hein bollowParticipant

Your spelling is great stuff this time Jac, but I can’t see too many chances for Karl here.
My opinion of this horse is not too high generally, but maybe he will remember his few good forms,
so best of luck to you with hopefully limited stakesNovember 8, 2019 at 00:25 #1474319
Looks like he’ll have to be a good swimmer hein the course is currently waterlogged and race doubtful to go ahead…and that sums up the flat season for me Joni ..look forward to your review and I’ll be looking back over a few good 2yo’s I’ve seen at Newmarket in the last month for Darren’s 2yo Thread.
See you next year
