A dreadful week. I have been told not to write against stupidity, moral grandstanding, the pernicious growth of anti-semitism, virtue signalling, the ludicrous fear of the word transition, the stifling of free speech, the collapse in varying degrees of our economy, language, and common sense, and coming soon a time when all our fears re the future of horseracing could quickly be overshadowed by much worse.
You think me foolish? The Countryman closed this week. The last edition will be out over the next few days. Buy a copy – they will then, perhaps, at least have enough for a glass of farewell fizz.
Still, it could be worse… we could be bad at Cricket as well as Rugby….. we did what…
Just a few races. Bon Chance.
