Greetings from Cheltenham, between races.

I shall be busy and largely off-line for a few days.

 

It’s so wonderfully removed from fandom.

 

  1. The winners deserve to have won.
  2. The losers understand this.
  3. Every runner has its day, and today’s winner may not so much as place next time ’round.
  4. That also is understood and accepted.
  5. No National Hunt runner has ever flounced off in high, dramatic dudgeon from having not won.
  6. It involves both ends of the horse

I am now envisioning a horse, mid-flounce. Clearly it is time to go to bed.

That's called dressage!

BAHAHAHAHAHAH! Not what I had in mind, although now the horse is dressage-flouncing while Brammers (decked out in shadbelly, top hat, and riding gloves, obvs) clings on and tells it what a twit it's being...

Wrong racetrack, I know, but now I can't get this song out of my head.
