    With Julian Wilson heading for a care home after doing plenty in the Farepak hamper debacle (the real reason he’s giving up racehorse ownership – see page nine of today’s Racing Post) the Post will surely need someone to fill his boots. I nominate Betlarge who, rather than take the ‘toys out of pram’ route, managed to get his point across with humour and just a hint of sarcasm in the letters page today (page 18). Well done Mike.

    Ah yes Mounty, but they didn’t print the evidence…

    Over the last at Warwick…

    Just taking this away from the amusing discussion for a second, what did posters think of Mr Angry’s piece this morning.

    Food for thought, though he conveniently ignores his substantial gambling winnings on horses such as Cleaver when he discusses costs.

    And the fact that he has had plenty of winners as an owner on the AWT (Molem springs to mind),yet slags it off still.

    <br>Molem in fact was the only horse he had an interest in during 2006, at least under the Seymour Racing tag that he’s been part of in recent years. And that was sold a month ago at Newmarket, so the ‘quitting ownership in 2007’ line isn’t going to involve a massive dispersal sale.

    As for his claim that it cost £24,00 to keep that horse in training for a year – well anyone that pays that much to maintain a Class 6 handicap winner is either daft or has too much cash.

    Can only think the Racing Post piece has been written to provoke it’s audience. It certianly worked on me, got me thinking as to what a complete dinosaur is. The pomposity of the man where he seems too think that owners have a divine right to have it off is laughable.

    <br>DJ,

    Of course that would explain why he’s blind to the real world.

    I stopped reading when he suggested that the destruction of civilsation is bing caused by families no longer sitting down to Sunday lunch together.

    I’m with JW on that. When my mum stopped giving me roast beef and yorkshire pudding, I always found the best solution was to vandalise a phone box whilst wearing a hoodie when tanked up on a cocktail of 20/20 and Diamond White.:biggrin:

    Mike,<br>You get a good view of the action @ Kempton AW track.

    Maybe…but does Kempton AW offer the all-round hat-selling retail experience that Warwick does?

    What if I fancied a mid-afternoon Panama?  Or a getting-out stakes Fedora?

    I’m not surprised that nobody attends Kempton AW – if your head gets cold and you’ve forgotten your cap, well you’re f*cked.

    I really wish people like you would understand the needs of the modern racegoer.

    They do at Warwick:angry:
