Sorry, pretend wanabee toffs..

I put myself in that bracket actually, as my cousin is the top trainer at garrason savannah in Barbados and we have our very own family private box..complete with dedicated butler.

Horse racing bores the shit out of me thou, guess I was just born into it.

used to bore me senseless too until a friend took the time to sit down and explain it all to me, it really is good fun, especially when you are more 'involved' so to say

which "toffs" was that then, bc...?

think the only point i ever remember anyone making was that it's not like you "own" a racehourse, it's a pretty minute investment in the grand scheme of horse racing, with a large number of people in the synicate, that doesn't even give you a leg of a horse (and yes, i did see and was offered the same package) so even if you got your investment back - which is great - it's not like you can retire now or anything...!

whatever, well done your horse...

MM, xx

There is a good message though. Invest in things you can understand, if you can't understand how or why you are going to make money then it's usually better to walk away .
