Don't miss Black Caviar this weekend at Royal Ascot---apparantly she looks very well and has settled in to her temporary Newmarket home like a veteran, she is also the talk of Newmarket, the true home of thoroughbred racing.

So You Think also ran away with his race, beating the Queen's horse.

Wonder what Lester Piggot makes of all this!

This is another piece for the " I didn't know that !! " file. smile.gif

QUOTE
Phar Lap


Phar Lap's name means 'lightning' in Thai. How a horse in Australia got a Thai name is a story in itself. A young man called Aubrey Ping, then a student in medicine at the University of Sydney, regularly watched horses in trackwork at Randwick and would often 'chew the fat' with riders and trainers.

Ping's father was a Zhuang speaker who migrated to Australia in the 19th century from southern China. Young Aubrey learnt some Zhuang from his father, and the Zhuang language shares with Thai the name for lightning. The use of the letters 'ph', instead of a simple 'f', created a seven letter name that was split into two words: Phar Lap. This was essential to Harry Telford because it replicated the dominant pattern set by Melbourne Cup winners.

Research provided by Michael Lennie.

Don't know what's more expensive, boats or horses.
Horses, you tip in $100 notes one end and the other end delivers a lump of crap!

Black Caviar wins again--this time the Cox Plate, fantastic watch a race replay, mind you she only had a few to beat as not many wanted to challenge.

Have seen more than a few horse races around the world both on the flat and over the sticks, but to watch Black Caviar win more races straight than Phar Lap was a great privelege, the wonderful thing is that she did it so easily, ears pricked, she may be coming to Perth for our summer racing carnival, would be an even greater privelege to see her in the flesh.

Fantastic Feat.
