Good luck work rider very exciting times.
I knew someone who would book to go away with his mates and wouldn’t tell his wife till the night before while packing.
He reasoned she would get the raving hump with him anyway but would have calmed down by the time he returned.
They’re divorced  now

I just backed a 1.01 loser workrider I was supremely confident that slickster robo was going to appear and say silly wonky couldn't afford a 2 year old skateboard never mind a racehorse or something like that. goodluck with the horse though
Report slickster August 24, 2021 11:05 PM BST
I would imagine wonky bought a gerbil or a hamster even a pigeon. Maybe even bugs bunny. But good aul wonks has enlarged it into a racehorse!!!!

28 years is a long time between drinks wonky. You'll be telling us next that Frankel is the sire and you bought a leg for a monkey! Get back to riding your piebald around the green.

Very best of luck Workrider. A real leap of faith buying a two year old but, of course, you can dream of all the classics it's going to win!

Good luck 'workrider'. I hope you've loads of fun with the beast. I might venture in some time in the future too otherwise I'll be completely off horseracing since Shergar winning The Derby. I'm disillusioned and dejected the way this sport and gambling are going.

Workrider: when "Er indoors" cools down and your inspired investment brings rewards, expect the Little 'Lady' to have her mucky hand outstretched! I've had experience of these matters, stay strong!

Its solved Ihal, I am very lucky to have such a wonderful lady in my life , doubt I'd have survived without her, any time when my funds ran out she would be the first to come to my rescue and has done for the last 41 years. I think she secretly loves the fact that its such a huge part of my life but she's never going to admit that you can be sure..

Wonky is not privy to the pedigree as he has only secured a hair of the horse's tail ExcitedGrin

All the best. Nothing like watching a horse you own going to the start for the first time. It can be downhill after that but not always.

Certainly looks like it slickster,
That's the second time I've asked,

I wouldn't normally be so pushy but I gave him details of both of mine down to lot no. at sale even.

He forgot to import that pedigree info into his dream.
Report slickster August 25, 2021 11:56 PM BST
Wonky has been found out. Now he has always been a few cans short of a 6 pack but this is one fantasy too far. 28 years gap is bizarre. Let's say he parted with a few k to buy a little share. Surely he would want to know its pedigree at the very least. Wonky tries to be the big I am. Unfortunately too many innocent posters fall for this nonsense from him. He has previous for this type of attention seeking drivel.

Jealousy eats like a debilitating disease. Over time it takes over one's life. It's prudent to take the honourable route eg say less and move on.

as manuel would say 'i know nothing' in respect of messrs slickster and robo but I have met and gone racing several times in Scotland and Ireland with workrider and I've not met many who are as passionate, immersed, willing to travel/spend, knowledgeable about all things horse racing than myself, but workrider is one of them..and he's reliable and dependable, if he says he's going to be at tipperary by 1PM then he's there...i look forward to meeting him soon for a long overdue catch up...a bit of banter is great but some of this is a bit OTT, good luck all
