    The main reason she caught my eye Nathan was her tail flashing in the Chesham and then I researched and watched her other races and was amazed she did the very same thing I just thought ‘no flies on this filly’ lol.

    Going back to Attraction with her dodgy leg movement could the Johnston team have another talented but quirky filly on their hands..I love her already and looking forward to seeing her again possibly in the Moyglare. :heart:

    She did flash her tail once or twice in the parade ring but after the race in the winners enclosure she was as good as gold unlike her owners who were out in force to welcome her in and were ecstatic. :yahoo:

    I saw her in the flesh Moe and she was the best looking filly in the paddock.
    No idea what Mr. Machin was on about with the commentary she was up in the first 3 within the first furlong and then dropped back to be waited with on the far end.
    Stewart Machin was so intent on watching the Godolphin horse Elegant Charm he was calling her home the winner and didn’t see Bright Diamond absolutely sluicing up on the far side to win by 10 lengths

    It was bad race calling on his part Peter O’Sulluvan would have spotted her.

    That’s great picking Andre they are all coming out for you. :yahoo:
    Good luck today .. :good:

    Mikes Nap Grocer Jack was actually 2nd but when his first horse Mannacan beat my Nap Arecibo I knew it would be difficult to find the 22 plus points I needed to just equal his first weekscscore :scratch: Still happy with my effort and won enough at Newmarket yesterday to pay for at least another 2 days at the races it was my best win this season.. :yahoo:
    Hope you are all keeping well across the pond
    Jac :heart: x

    Sadly he was not in my stable, but some decent points for anyone who had him. :good:

    I didn’t look at the times Ian but that is interesting and of course they all have time on their side to come on leaps and bounds next season. Will be interesting to keep track of Jalapa’s development

    I think Lakota Sioux holds a Moyglare entry and she already has black type having run 3rd in the Chesham so definitely more to come.
    I certainly wouldn’t want to be a horse in the firing line of that that tail.
    Perhaps they should issue eye guards to all her future rivals. :wacko:

    Cork..Bright Diamond looked a picture in the paddock the best looking filly by far and she caught a few eyes.
    There were rumours that Elegant Charm is not one of Godolphin’s best and so it proved.

    One for the future notebook from that race was Juddmonte Farm’s Expert Eye filly Jalapa who looked the most behind of the all the contenders, being very lightly framed, she still has some growing to do but she ran a good maiden, in 3rd place, yesterday and as a half sister to Westover could make a decent 3yo. :good:

    Colin…I do love a quirky filly and Lakota Sioux is certainly that. She won lots of hearts yesterday with that tail flashing performance. Almost using it as a propeller. Brilliant ride by James Doyle to keep her out of trouble as she zigged and zagged across the course on her way to victory. Could we have seen the first tail flashing 1000 Guineas
    winner. :rose:

    Average attendance today and the fields got even smaller but still the racing was exciting and I managed to find the Sweet Solera winner the tail swishing Johnston filly Lakota Sioux and back my old friend Mitrosonfire who won the race after at 13/2. :rose:

    A good day for a racing fan like me but sometimes I wonder why people bother going racing as whilst queueing at the Tote to put on my Placepot the guy in front was busy going through the whole card putting his bets on, obviously not intending to take a trip to the paddock and even look at a horse. :wacko:

    I took a long last look at the weighing room and head on stand Cork and like you hope they don’t ruin it. I especially hope they don’t put those awful white metal barriers around the pretty parade ring like they have on the Rowley Mile it would ruin the whole character of the July Course.

    Well done Mike :good:
    I knew my fate as soon as Mannacan won the 2.10 at Ascot, two winners at Newmarket couldn’t pull it back for me.

    Good luck in the Final. :good:

    Lol Ian .. I could have done with a bit of care myself at Newmarket this afternoon when I got to the 5th Race of the day without backing a winner and then the tail swishing filly Lakota Sioux came home for me in the Sweet Solera and in the next Mitrosonfire sailed in at 13/2. The day was saved but sadly not enough points to beat Mike007 in the Semi Final of the Daylight..I could almost hear him shouting ‘Get In’..

    Now after that build up and before I get a Yellow Card from Nathan I have to burst your bubble a little as I believe one of your horses the fantastic Little Big Bear was under 2/1 SP which makes him ineligible for the Starmix Challenge..sorry Ian it’s been so long since anybody won I forgot the rules.. :wacko: Jac

    I’m going there today Cork and will report back. It seems everyone’s off to the Shergar Cup today, at least the field sizes are guaranteed.

    Newmarket July Course about to spend another shed load of money replacing the weighing room and the head on viewing stand after they close at end of August,
    That can only mean a hike in Membership and entrance prices for next year. :wacko:

    Do you remember Lost In Space Ian, that’s also available in a box set now.
    That creepy Dr. Zachary Smith was always up to no good trying to sabotage the spacecraft.

    If you’ve never watched Foyle’s War I could highly recommend putting that on the list. I bought my husband
    the full box set for his birthday last year and we were hooked. I completely missed it the first time round.

    One or two kitchen sink dramas I would like to relive…
    the original Bouquet Of Barbed Wire with Trevor Eve, Frank Finlay and the Men’s Room with the fabulous Bill Nighy.
    Possibly more of a woman’s thing way back then I guess but still edgy stuff…Jac
