    Just to let you know I have began a little racing blog that can be found at the address below.

    http://racingrecord.blogspot.com/

    My first post is a quick look back at the Open meeting, and over the jump season i hope to address the issues of the week as well as preview some of the races in which i have a fancy :) Any comments etc always welcome, as well as anything you would like me to address. The more hits the better and in the future I hope to point you in the direction of a few quid and a few debates!

    Enjoy and tell your friends.

    Why should we look out for Cork All Star on softish ground? He has won on firm, good and g/s. In fact I would be wary of him in very soft ground as his sire is not known for stamina

    Excellent blog stolen horse.

    There seems to be a few people with their own racing blog (Mesh, slippertytoad, tooting, stolen horse, etc) and I wondered whether it would be an idea for the forum to have a page of links to the various sites run by forum members?

    Anyone think this is a good idea? If so let me know and I’ll get to work on it.

    Perhaps I could even set up a blog area for forum members?

    Could make for good reading.

    I think a page of links would be a good idea. Racing is all about opinions and while some may not agree with each other, a blog is a fairly easy, free way of sharing what you think about certain issues/ races. The more the merrier I say!

    <br>As the proud father of two blogs, I’m bound to say that that’d be a good idea. :)

    I fear my contributions would be less constructive than those offered by the likes of GC and others on here.

    "Went to Towecester. Crashed at Zome’s night before and ended up in the pub. Spent much of the afternoon in the bar, before sodding off for a take away and wine.

    I believe some horses were in attendance and possibly jumped some fences, but cannot be entirely sure."

    Probably best to report back when I’ve NOT been using the racing as an excuse to catch up with old friends. :cheesy:

    PMSL @ Zoz

    Too busy to do so tonight, but looks like Guesty’s antics will compel me to add a sizeable addition to Brancepethfan sometime this week in not the loveliest of circumstances. :(

    Enjoyed the trip down Memory Lane on November 7th’s thatracingblog.blogspot.com entry, Jeremy (yes, I have finally emerged from the trauma of the whole Sportsman experience).

    My personal favourites of my time at Riverside were being e-mailed by a jockey’s agent (he later apologised and therefore shall remain anonymous) calling me a "**********" on the first day the paper was published and that guy who owns Ryders Storm (and rotates the horse around the entire training fraternity) shouting "ye’ve had a go at me horse, why don’t you have a go at me wife and kids while yer at it, yer b*****d<br>?" down the phone at me (it was tempting to say "ok, if you insist, I will" )

    "You can libel and slander horses", we were constantly reminded at the Sportsman, "just never people"

    should read "you can libel and slander people (only don’t) but not horses", surely?

    Stolen Horse – a very good read.

    Can I just sneak in a quick plug for my blog, which can be found at

    http://sportinvestor.wordpress.com

    We try to preview the big race every week (got State of Play last week) as well as having an ongoing Cheltenham portfolio with the aim of trading off and going into the Festival ‘risk free.’

    We also look at cricket, darts, rugby league, snooker, NFL and, occasionally, football, rugby union and golf.

    Some great blogs. I’ll try to get a TRF Blog Directory page set up for the New yaer (if not before).

    I strongly fancy Royals Darling, too, jp and had bet on him with a couple of bokkies.

    Today, I’ve put a little more on at Betfair at no less tha 50/1! I just hope he’s going to run, and the price isn’t due to inside info.

    Looks like Royals Darling is a non runner for this one sadly.  Shame as I think that Henderson is missing out on a good pay day at Sandown.  You never know – we might be surprised by the decs tomorrow but the peril of ante-post punting is losing out with non runners (normally in the week before Cheltanham).  The disadvantage of non runners is always surpassed by the advantage of securing the far superior prices at ante post level.
