    Two real racing giants.
    I had the pleasure of seeing both in the flesh.

    Pleased to see they have retired him. I was there for his Gold Cup too and yes it was brutal. Hope he has a decent retirement.

    Good decision, so glad he got out in one piece. Hopefully has many happy years ahead of him.
    Baby maybe better come back next week, can't you see I'm on a losing streak

    Had to turn it off to not see what happened. Espirit Du Large just ook an absolutely horrible fall. Was not nice to watch. Some sort of summersault 360 landing on its neck.

    "Shewearsitwell is probably not going to make Cheltenham, which is a pity, as she has as much ability as the others,Ē

    I think she has a few backers on here. Patrick Mullins quote from during the week

    Faugheen had a setback also

    When are they just going to give up with Faugheen? Horse owes them nothing, and deserves his retirement.

    Phil Kirby has retired Suggestion. He’s gone to Adam Nicol’s so hopefully we’ll see him on the beach!

    Loved that horse, not old either bless him. Daylami wasn't overly popular at stud until his brother retired, and then some people who couldn't have a nomination with Dalakhani . tried to get one with Daylami who always covered very limited books, and were furious at being turned away. Someone at Kildangan said to me ' we're couldn't give away a nomination last year now they're shouting at us 'cos we are saying no'.
    Baby maybe better come back next week, can't you see I'm on a losing streak

    Rarely did a horse get a quieter ride in a Classic than Dalakhani in Irish Derby when home town hero Alamshar did him.
    Shows how sporting the Aga Khan was to run them both that day.

    I was hoping beyond hope that Mohaayed wasn’t injured but it didn’t look good. I feel as if I’ve been following and backing him forever. Must have been such a favourite at the yard. RIP
