It's tomorrow!

I maybe like Vieux Lion Rouge (there is also a nice interview about him), for two reasons: has a nice name and looks pretty :P and also I Just Know for the same reasons.

I haven’t had much time to look at the runners this year but I’ll be watching with interest.

I couldn't see Vieux Lion Rouge anywhere during the race. I Just Know was the early leader, but lost the rider. Seems like he ran along for the most part of the race. Tiger Roll, one of the favourites, won by a nose. One of the loose horses fell after a jump, tried to run but stopped. Seems like he was destroyed there, because horses were running around that place (and fence) on the second circuit.

The photo finish:

The horse was Saint Arr (I think I’ve spelt that right). Just been reported that he’s been taken to the racecourse stables for assessment so semi-positive news. All other horses and jockeys reported to be ok.

Tom George, trainer of Saint Are (correct spelling this time), has done well overnight and will be going back to the trainer’s stables in Gloucestershire today. Hopefully if he’s well enough to travel, that’s a good sign.

Yes it did. Nice photo of him on the trainer’s Twitter Page, safely home in his own stable :)
