focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...


One of our two Diamonds and Gold selections did us proud,

And the ratings were excellent with an overall strike rate (for the top rated horse) of 45.16%

It was especially good at Ayr where we got 4 winners from the 8 races and Roscommon where we got 4 winners from the 7 races.

The highlight of the day has to be the 19:00 at Ripon where our top rated horse won at 16/1

The Story of Refrigerator

It got crowded in heaven, so, for one day it was decided only to accept people who had really had a bad day on the day they died.

St. Peter was standing at the pearly gates and said to the first man, "Tell me about the day you died."

The man said, "Oh, it was awful. I was sure my wife was having an affair, so I came home early to catch her with him. I searched all over the apartment but couldn't find him anywhere. So I went out onto the balcony, we live on the 25th floor, and found this man hanging over the edge by his fingertips. I went inside, got a hammer, and started hitting his hands. He fell, but landed in some bushes. So, I got the refrigerator and pushed it over the balcony and it crushed him. The strain of the act gave me a heart attack, and I died."

St. Peter could not deny that this was a pretty bad day, and since it was a crime of passion, he let the man in.

He then asked the next man in line about the day he died. "Well, sir, it was awful," said the second man. "I was doing aerobics on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment when I twisted my ankle and slipped over the edge. I managed to grab the balcony of the apartment below, but some maniac came out and started pounding on my fingers with a hammer. Luckily I landed in some bushes. But, then the guy dropped a refrigerator on me!"

St. Peter chuckled, let him into heaven and decided he could really start to enjoy this job.

"Tell me about the day you died," he said to the third man in line.

"OK, picture this, I am naked, hiding inside a refrigerator...."

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
