George an avid racegoer. Hayley Turner's number one fan.
The Tic Tac man: a secret language explained.... Tic tac sign language is becoming a lost art as bookmakers get it all done by computers. But that is a shame; because I think it should be preserved as part of our cultural heritrage. If nothing else it is pure theatre for the racegoer. But what does it mean? Music journalist and former bookmaker's assistant Simon Nott explains the mysterious and peculiarly British cultural phenomenon to me...
A ***y Horse: we pick Dan Breen at Sandown over champagne and seafood tapas A bottleof champagne; two large glasses of ornage to make buck's fizz; seafood tapas with breads for 3 people all for £54; lovely live music and overlooking the paddock! I could indulge having backed Posh Emily each way at 14/1 (3rd) and Russian Flag to win at 8/1 (won) but my former colleague at the Royal Geographical Society Kathryn hadn't yet had a bet. She was a first time racegoer and inspired by my succesas a tipster so far decided to have a good bet on Dan Breen. Somehow; we thought he was just a ***y horse whn he entered the Parade ring...
Tribute to Twist Magic ♥ [RIP] I do not own the song/audio. Full rights to the owner of this audio. 3 months later, I finally finish this! Not because it's difficult to make, it's just so sad :( This beautiful national hunts race horse was put to sleep after a fatal fall that fractured his fetlock at a race in Newbury. If anyone saw this horse in action, they instantly loved him. I'm sure I did. Very stubborn in his ways, and refusing to start with some jockeys and would rear up before the races, and be nut case that would make it hard for anyone to handle. But some jockeys manged him magnificently and he would go brilliantly and win most two mile chases he was put in. I loved seeing him out with his big muscly neck that made him look different, and the 'feet planted in the ground' stage before the line up in the race. A right quirky horse that one was, and will be sorely missed. Run free in horsey heaven big boy. Rest in peace ******

Interview with 84 year old regular Chepstow racegoer Jack Maclean Jack Maclean is 84 years old; and is a *** regular racegoer at Chepstow; travelling all the way from the Gower pensinsula attending on average one meet a month there. Jack, from te West Indies but also worked in Boston USA for a long while were he met wife Dyllis, is always excitedly dashing around getting his bets on and discussing each race with other racegoers. His secret betting wise is to stick to trainers in form; so he recommends right now following the powerful Paul Nicholls(of whom he is a great fan) and also Philip Hobbs and Haverfordwest trainer Peter Bowen. Already Jack had had two winners; and sometimes I have seen him back as many as four or five in a day! I love Jack's thirties style real tweed cap; a style also favoured by trainers such as Jack's hero Paul Nicholls. If you are ever visiting Ffos Las and seeking somewhere to stay you will usually find Jack at The King's Head at Llangenith on the Gower most evenings. The King's Head is a great racing and surfing pub; run by Anna and Lara Stevens; well known for their Shetlands and particpation in Shetland National races.
