HOST presenter, specialist broadcaster. Bloodhorse illiterate.
GUESS STAR RUBY WALSH, BLOODHORSE LITERATE PROFESSIONAL JUMP JOCKEY. SEVEN TIMES IRISH JUMP JOCKEY CHAMPION. OUT AT PRESENT WITH A BROKEN LEG. HOPES TO RETURN IN MID TO LATE FEBRUARY 2011.
RUBY sitting it out on the sidelines today with C4 team to watch TONY (AP) Mc COY take his ride on KAUTO STAR AT 3.00pm IN THE THREE MILE KING GEORGE VI CHASE.
Ruby Walsh (born Rupert Walsh on 14 May 1979 in Kill, County Kildare, Ireland) is the reigning Irish National Hunt champion jockey. He is the second child, and eldest son, of former champion amateur jockey Ted Walsh and his wife Helen.
Like many jump jockeys, Walsh has suffered a number of serious injuries, the worst of which was a broken leg sustained in 1999 at Pardubice in the Czech Republic, a course he was visiting in order to compete in the famous Great Pardubice Steeplechase. He later broke the same leg while schooling a horse and was out of action for a total of five months that season, but recovered in time to partner Papillon to win his first Grand National.
Walsh has also fractured his wrist twice, dislocated one hip and fractured the other, cracked his elbow, dislocated both shoulders and suffered cracked and badly bruised vertebrae. A fall at the Paddy Power meeting at Cheltenham in November 2008 resulted in Walsh having his spleen removed in an emergency operation. He returned to the saddle 27 days later.
Walsh fractured his left ankle during a fall from the ill-fated Imperial Hills, trained by Willie Mullins at Killarney in May 2009. During his time off he was present to saddle Sesenta for Willie Mullins in the Ascot Stakes at Royal Ascot.
During the run-up to the 2010 Grand National he broke his left arm after a fall from Celestial Halo. His horse fell and they both seemed to have got away unscathed, but a horse racing behind them landed on his arm while he was on the floor, breaking it in two places.
TEMPAREMENT calm, quick, grounded, in tune with his horses.

LIVE LINK, GUEST STAR NIGEL TWISTON-DAVIES , BLOODHORSE LITERATE
The Nigel Twiston-Davies website, National Hunt Trainer of the Year, 2010!
We meet up with Nigel Twiston-Davies at his home. He brings to light some key issues that are of great concern to all those who work at the dangerous sharp end of horseracing without whom there would be no British horseracing. All those who have achieved Bloodhorse Literacy, something that money cannot buy. Issues that the British Horseracing Authority need to improve upon, to move forward on ... to re-tune and improve upon, especially in this Bloodhorse Literate Zone.
The present man in charge at BHA Nic Coward, he is Bloodhorse Illiterate. This poses the question, Should a Bloodhorse Illiterate person be holding a position such as this in the first place? Coward may have several talents in other key areas. But if he is not truly Bloodhorse Literate he has no place holding this particular position.
The other key problem with the BHA, they take such offence if anyone attempts to suggest a better way forward, or points out errors of judgement that need adjusting, correcting.
EG: AIDAN O’BRIEN CAPE BLANCO SAGA http://turfcall2.blogspot.com/
A very recent glaring example hit the headlines before Christmas, showing just how wrong the BHA get things, and how long they take in getting things so wrong. Wasting their own time and huge mounts of money, not only their own, but many many other people's as well. Above all else a licensed trainer's responsibilities are to tend and mind the horses placed in his care by owners. More than ever when a horse comes in after racing with an injury. The BHA people should do all they can to uphold all rights and needs of the horses, not barge in and hinder first aid treatement, as was the case in CAPE BLANCO'S case.
Has Aidan O’ Brien been refunded the £10,000 BHA parties stung him with unjustly, before Christmas, for carrying out his duties to CAPE BLANCO properly? Have BHA parties put their hands up and admitted that they got this so wrong? If not, why not? Have BHA parties made a public apology to Aidan O’Brien and connections? Have they admitted that they got this issue so dreadfully wrong ? If not, why not?
The BHA attitude appears to be “ Put up and shut up ...... Chop of their heads style”
