There was pandemonium at London’s Prince of Wales theatre recently as talk-show host Jeremy Kyle invaded the stage during a performance of hit musical ‘Mamma Mia’ in a bid to determine which of three men who had slept with a singer in the late 1970s was the father of 22-year-old Sophie.
Jeremy is fascinated and passionate about the horses and about racing, he has found a home away from home, so he tells us, and loves going racing.

REVIEW OF THIS WEEK’S EBOR FESTIVAL MEETING FROM YORK
Brought to us live by the Channel 4 Horseracing Team. An intriguing mix of horses, color, glamour, excitement and enjoyment. Here are just a few of the highlights.
KIEREN FALLON Francs and Jim get Kieren into their broadcasting room for a chat. Kieren achieves winning rider award at York this week with 4 wins. A professional horseman who has achieved World Wide Greatness, something that no one can take away from him. A brilliant achievement that no one can buy. Only true dedication and hard work can ever achieve such a highly skilled art, in a tough and often sadly misunderstood profession wins merit as this. The shocking way that Fallon was wrongly accused and condemned falsely over what was allowed to go on over years and years, goodness knows at what financial cost, courtesy of several badly run British Establishment Parties all ‘Bloodhorse Illiterate’ all still locked up in the dark ages of horrific cruelty.
SIR MARK PRESCOTT BT at home, hosts a welcome to Alastair Down for Channel 4 bringing us an intriguing series highlighting each day the highs and the lows of a trainer’s skill in practice. A highly efficient set up, with every care taken to keep things safe for both the horses in his care, and his team of handler/riders. York Thursday 19 August Sir Mark trains the winner of the 2.15 Jaguar Cars Lowther Stakes (Group 2)(2 y-old fillies) with HOORAY partnered by SEB SANDERS for Cheveley Park Stud achieving a winning prize of £56,770.00 at 11/1.

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
Tanya asks for opinions this morning to e mail in, on last Thursday York Darley Oaks incident predicament when SARISKA JAMIE SPENCER would not leave the starting gate, refusing to race ... surprise, surprise SARISKA’S NO ... NO ... refusing to leave the starting gate when opened, JAMIE SPENCER’S predicament ... no can do 85/40 – disappoints all connections and punters alike. SARISKA is saying “thank you, but no thank you, no can do for you today.” This is a horse race so any and all punters should get their bet money refunded. The race was won by MIDDAY TOM QUELLY trainer Henry Cecil for K Abdulla who is having an exciting time with his horses running so well this season.
The further key point here has to be that whilst we are all allowed our own opinions, in this case, care needs to be taken to ensure that matters as these are kept in perspective. Opinions made by ‘Bloodhorse Illiterate’ persons can never be allowed to destroy the true fabric that is British horseracing, or what is left of it. Many within the British Horseracing Authority are already well advanced in the ‘Bloodhorse Illiteracy’ stakes. This should not be going on at all.
GUEST STAR EVE JOHNSON HOUGHTON (TRAINER)
Eve brings up the valid point of engaging a jockey, showing how tricky it can pan out to be sometimes, to get the jockey that you want for your horse.
Why does Sir Michael Stoute choose to work with Ryan Moore?
Why does John Gosden choose to work with William Buick?
Why does Henry Cecil choose to work with Tom Quelly?
Why does Richard Hannon choose to work with Richard Hughes?
Why does Sir Mark Prescott choose to work with Seb Sanders?
Why does Richard Fahey choose to work with Paul Hannagan?
To name only a few here. It is a great advantage to a trainer and to the horses such a trainer has in training for the owners, to have upsides him/her a rider who knows the horses. Can and often does make all the difference in the world, between winning and loosing a race.
