    Well done and much deserved

    VTC

    Poster of the Year

    . He puts much hard work into his compys and threads along with a wicked sense of humour which nailed it this year from our Nath a close second :D

    Glad to see the Daily Mirror coming home as

    Villain of the Year

    for their shambolic and insensitive coverage of the demise of dear Wigmore Hall…shame on them. :evil:

    Sire de Grugy

    much deserved win and his fantastic owners

    The Preston Family & Friends

    what a great bunch of owners. Can’t forget the day they wrapped a scarf around Princess Anne’s neck as she awarded them their trophy. :lol:

    Well done to all the other winners too and to Nathan for taking the time to put all this together.

    Congrats to all. Particularly pleasing to see Richard Hoiles triumphing again, Lady Cecil’s emotional win recognised and the wonderful Sire de Grugy proving it’s not just about the betting: it’s about the story too.

    Can’t forget the day they wrapped a scarf around Princess Anne’s neck as she awarded them their trophy.  

    It was Camilla if I remember rightly.

    :oops: Your right Burrough, of course it was Camilla,..they look very similar though don’t they. :lol:
    What a good sport she was.

    Reminds me of when I took loads of photos of the Queen at Royal Ascot only to find out when I got home and re-looked at them they were all of Camilla……… :lol:

    Well done all winners, particularly Venture To Cognac.

    I’d wonder how Hurricane Fly has never won the Horse of the Year award though, seems a woefully under-appreciated animal. Since last year’s awards he has added four more Grade 1 wins to a glittering CV, which now boasts 21 top level successes.

    Thanks Tommy.

    Yeah, I never took to Hurricane Fly too much myself, it’s just as he’s coming to the end of his career, that I’m beginning to appreciate just how tough he is. Hopefully he’ll be around for wee while yet.

    Same here; I just felt he won Mickey Mouse races in Ireland. But I was there when he won the Chapion the other year and I was very impressed with his win the other day. I do feel though, that he’s not a horse that you’d walk up to and offer a polo, if you wanted your fingers to remain intact.
