    I think his brief comeback was heavily dependant on the unlikely notion of Royal Atalza winning the Grand National.

    Last time I heard he was being sued for the return of a mere million quid – that was some six months ago – not a lot seems to have changed for him by the looks of things.

    Ramsden seems to have the unique ability of making large amounts of people give him money.

    Following his prison sentence and bankruptcy, he reappeared investing in various low-cap technology companies who’s share prices subsequently headed north – if only briefly.  Was this based on his previous financial acumen, which included p*ssing away 150 million in a few months?

    He always seems capable of scraping together a few ‘mill’ at short notice yet seems to have all the financial ability of Nick Leeson.

    Who are these people who bankroll him?

    And more importantly, how can I befriend them?

    I was watching the repeats of the 1990’s Grand Nationals on RUK yesterday and after watching 1996 I was thinking what happened to Encore Un Peu. He ran a great race behind Rough Quest but I can’t remember hearing too much about him afterwards.

    There was very little else to see or hear of him after that effort, Pat. He made his seasonal reappearance in the following year’s Racing Post Chase, finished a 38l – and very, very lame – fifth to Mudahim, and never raced again.


    The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.

    Mike – if you befriend him do ask him if he’s after a young, female, racing manager would you?? :biggrin:

    I have just recieved a email from Jackdaws, and this is what it said:

    Dear Karen

    Thank you for your email.  Keen Leader has been retired and is currently<br>at Jackdaws Castle out at grass.  He is ridden out occasionally and is<br>enjoying his retirement.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for this. He will go down as a big underacheiver but it’s great to hear that he is enjoying life.
