Another interesting item from Aidan.It will give us something to talk about again.I wonder who won the first race.Was it Mad Paddy,Great Hopes or Prima Donna.How about the second ,was it Miss Nightingale,Miss Tautz or Gay Lass herself.
Here are some names from a race in Galway today
Galway Mon 30th Oct
Going : Chase : Heavy, Hurdle/Flat/Bumper : Soft to Heavy
3.35 Killanin Stand Design Team Handicap Steeplechase 2m. 1f. 1st - �26,040, 2nd - �8,000, 3rd - �4,000, 4th - �1,600 10 Ran.
I dont recall who won this one but I would have gone for the big Kahuna,Poc Fada or Island Pride.Yes thats how I would pick my horses, by their names.Maybe I would have won,maybe not.
Heres an interesting site.
