LADY LUCK DECIDES, WE SUFFER!!

LADY AURELIA BEATEN BY MARSHA AND DETTORI!!

I HAVE BEEN IN THE DALDRUMS GUYS. I HAVE BEEN AS UNLUCKY AS YOU CAN IMAGINE AND AS STUPID AS YOU CANNOT IMAGINE. STILL TRYING TO BEAT THE BOOKIES AND GETTING WISER AT THE AGE OF HEPTAGENARIAN BUT WHO SAYS YOU NEVER LEARN?? YOU DO, I CAN ASSURE YOU YOUNG PRETENDERS!!

YOU NEVER STOP LEARNING , JUST LEARN THE LESSONS AND YOU SHOULD BE FINE!!

 

I SCREAMED THE QUEENS HORSE HOME AND THOUGHT I MADE IT. THE PHOTO FINISH SAID NO AND I WAS DISTRAUGHT. I HUGE TREBLE WAS ON IT AND IMMEDIATELY IT WAS DEAD AND BURIED BUT... AT LEAST DARTMUTH PLACED AND FOR ME HE WAS A BANKER WIN AND PLACE. THUS MY SHOUTING AT LEAST BROUGHT HIM HOME AND MY 90.00 ON PLACE MADE THE LOSSES ON THE WIN. I HAD A SMALL 3.00 EW SAVER ON THE WINNER, SO THE DISASTER WAS THWARTED BUT...

WAS THAT UNLUCKY? 

BLOODY UNLUCKY IN MY VIEW!!

NEXT RACE I FOLLOWED THE FORM PATH AND KNEW THAT MY SELECTION WAS NOT TO BE DENIED EASILY. THE SIGNS WERE GOOD AND TALAYUB OBLIGED THUS RESTORING MY CONFIDENCE AND GIVING ME THE HOPE OF HAVING AT LEAST A DOUBLE AND TAKE SOME MONEY FOR MY LABOURS AND STUDIES.

THE PANDEMONIUM IN THE SOP ONCE HE WON WAS BEYOND DESCRIPTION. MY SCREAMING HIM HOME AND THEN SCREAMING TOSCANINI SECOND FOR THE SFC WAS IMMENSE AND FINALLY I GOT A SMALL SFC OF 1.50 THAT RETURNED ME JUST OVER 300.00. RELIEF AND EXPECTATIONS BECAUSE THE BIG DOUBLES KICKED IN AND THE EW ACCUMULATORS WERE ON. NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT I HAD A FIFTY POUND NOTE WIN ON IT PLUS AN EU OF 15.00. IT WAS A VERY GOOD RESULT FOR ME.

I WAS CERTAIN THAT LADY AURELIA WAS THE ONE AND I WAITED AS A MATTER OF FACT TO COLLECT. HOWEVER, THE POWERS FROM ABOVE CONSPIRED AGAINST ME AND THE HORSE. DETTORI DROOPED HIS WHIP, MORRIS WAS A TIGER AT THE FINISH AND THE CELEBRATIONS OF EARLY TURNED INTO DESPERATION AS ABOUT 400.00 ON AURELIA WENT TO THE DRAINS.

HOW COULD DETTORI DO THAT? SIMPLE,  I WAS ON LADY AURELIA FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE SHE STARTED WINNING HER RACES IN BRITAIN. THUS LADY LUCK ONCE AGAIN TOLD ME CLEARLY;

I DECIDE , NOT YOU, IDIOT!

I REST MY CASE!

IT WAS A REAL BLOW BUT I CANNOT SIT HERE AND WRITE PITIFUL STORIES SINCE AT THE END OF THE DAY I WAS UP BY ABOUT 1100 POUNDS, AFTER A CALAMITOUS EARLY YORK AND SOME SERIOUS STUPID MISTAKES THAT PROVED VERY COSTLY. I AM LOOKING AT TODAY'S RACING AND I SEE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES AND HOPE FOR ANOTHER GOOD DAY.

JOIN ME AGAIN TO SEE HOW AN UNLUCKY FRIDAY MIGHT BE TURNED INTO A LUCKY SATURDAY BUT ALWAYS WITH LADY LUCK'S BLESSINGS, NOT MY OWN WISHES.

DUM SPIRO SPERO!!
