I've had it with British racing. Run by a bunch of nincompoops. They must all be related to Boris

Why aren't tight bends cambered?  On second thoughts, stupid question. This is Great British  racing,

the best in the World. Clerk of the course sounded clueless.

All prize money should be shared out amongst connections. Why should Haydock keep it?

Musselbugh has the top bend cambered and the bottom bend is an all weather surface which has been a great success and I am surprised more tracks dont go that way.

Donegal. Buy a share in a horse in France. Prize money three times what is is here and racing is

run competently.

The reason onlooker is it’s jockey club racecourses in haydock case the worst run racecourse in the country.
Report Cider May 27, 2022 8:15 PM BST
Apparently the reason is the run off is around the bend and the jockeys didn't want to race.

What a total embarrassment my local course has become. The Clerk is the biggest waste of time on the circuit with trainers always complaining about the ground. Too expensive to get in and punters getting ripped off with food and drink prices and crap racing. This lot really need a bite of a reality sandwich. I won't be going tomorrow in case the sun comes out making the ground too slippery and them taking my money after the inevitable postponement after the third race. When is someone going to come in and sort out our great sport currently run by the biggest ars!holes known to man.

haydock was a once great racecourse...the winter mid week jumps meets total highlights . alas, its gone down the chester route ; crap bars , crap booze, crap viewing, crap racing .....
Report roggrain May 27, 2022 10:46 PM BST
Yes Donegal that market is great. I go there before racing and usually buy their (I forget what it's

called) sort of stew consisting of chicken, sausage, veg etc in a delicious sauce and a tub of Cous

Cous on the side. My favourite jock is always there, Peslier. Coolest character around.

I was by the exit chute one day when, as he was led out, one of the 'Turfists' was following along

giving him the rude fist and shouting all sorts of stuff for his ride in the previous race.

At first he ignored the abuse. Then he looked down at the guy, smiled, and blew him a kiss! That

stopped him in his tracks. Of course I also like Peslier for High Rise (25/1 Derby) and Solemia's

Arc (40/1) when Orfevre looked all over the winner.

Great, relaxed atmosphere and all for a few euros entry. No drunken yobs (except Arc day when the

Brits come) . The way racing should be.

Exactly Daryl. If grass isn't cut too short it doesn't require watering. Throughout the year there'll be firm ground for long periods which is safe for horses that go on it. Then the heavens will open and there'll be a few days of soft ground for those types. It's luck of the draw with what the heavens deliver, but it should end these farces.

Report DonegalPrince May 28, 2022 6:42 PM BST
rograin, lovely tale. At the risk of prolonging the thread, let me tell you my Peslier tale. A few years ago we went to a great place in Deauville. Used to leave Racing Posts outside of a morning for people to take. Shut now sadly. Forgotten the name. My mate had won large on Banks Hill in USA a few years back and, on his way to the gents, said well done to OP who was there with his partner and another couple. An hour later, when we were nursing cognacs, the owner (who sort of knew us) came over to our table and said OP was grateful for the appreciation and would  we care to join the table for a digestif. We spent 30 or 40 minutes chatting away partaking of the most amazing armagnac which OP had bought because he had said that he would buy a big drink for his mate and his wife when he, the trainer, had his first runner in a G1 (which he had ridden with no success that afternoon).  I had never had a drink like it (and I love my armagnacs). Over a few more later in the evening my mate Googled the bottle to discover that it was as rare as rocking horse etc and a bottle had just been sold at auction for E20,000!!!!! It was undoubtedly the bottle we had! What a day. What a guy.
