We have been advised of what would seem to be a great opportunity for a Junior Driver. Josh Dickie is looking for a Junior to join his stable, with a nice team of horses and accommodation available. Anyone interested can call him on 0210652714.
Just thought I would add a postscript to my angry rant of last week. Once again, on this occasion on a very small scale, the incident involving my horse crashing to the track brought out the sort of attitude and support that makes our game great. First of all, as we were making our way out to the track, we were joined by Matty Williamson who, for no reason other than to assist, helped un-gear the horse and, because our driver had to be checked out by St. John, hopped in the sulky and drove him back to the stables. Following that, we were literally inundated with people, many of whom we hardly knew, asking how the horse was, and expressing sympathy. (Sadly, the starter I hold responsible, wasn’t one of them!). It was a tough day, but the support and good wishes certainly made it more bearable.
