Hope he has a wide expanse on which to scurry - must be 'itching to get going'.

Thanks Dennis. That's great news. And in June 2023 my prayers for words of a different kind might be answered: "And as they round Tattenham, its Toddington Tornado in the lead". Oh, I can't wait. In the meantime, you might like to give him a pat on my behalf - but no grass from the hedgerow you understand.

Wouldn’t that be something Philip, but it’s a long way from Tattenham corner to the winning post. I don’t think my dickie ticker could stand it!

He is handsome Dennis, and he'll grow up to be a grand looking stallion too, hope he doesn't go into racing.

I've never bet on a horse and never shall as I've seen so many losers with some men even risking and then losing their entire weeks wage on the name of a horse tipped to be a dead cert, the only certain outcome I can see is that of the bookies winning your money.

Well said Cyril. Horse Sense is what keeps horses from betting on men. xx

Quite right Cyril: no such thing as a 'dead cert', but tips from close to the yard are worth a flutter. A tip from the said source sped our way some time ago and came up trumps, while another from the same yard, a short while later, almost ran into the far rails as it left the final bend. Both horses carried what's called 'stable money'. Yeah, it can be a bit dicey. Dicey! that reminds me ... the Irish song Dicey Riley ... its' on the Dominic Behan L.P. 'Arkle', which I bought all those years ago for my older brother. Dicey Riley and the eponymous hero of the album have quite different gallops. Regards.
