Update news on brave Sprinter Sacra

 "Heart scare similar to Denman"

"TRAINER  Nicky Henderson and Owner Caroline Mould will be hopeful Sprinter Sacre can emulate fellow chasing superstar Denman by overcoming a heart problem and returning as good as ever .... a must read in Racing Post on Sacred Sunday.
http://www.racingpost.com/news/live.sd 


Team Henderson are having to cope with tricky, tough times in the sideline department at present. With Sprinter Sacra sidelined, and Simonsig out for the season with physical injury. As Nicky explaines :  "Racehorses are accidents waiting to happen. " Training and minding racehorses in training an amazing feat, that few ever come to realise.

MUSINGS FROM A RETIRED RACING ENTHUSIAST 

 
"Good luck not needed if you follow my plan"
Pic:  "Well Refreshed blundering at the last"

"HAPPY 2014, everyone! I say that but, obviously, for some of you, it won't be happy at all. It will be a miserable year. If you don't die, your cat will. If you haven't got a cat, count yourself lucky. Have you got a hamster? In 2014, the hamster is  probably a goner, Whatever you do, don't get a pet mayfly. It won't last a week.


GOOD LUCK PERSPECTIVE

HAPPY 2014 everyone!  All punters who like a bet, need good luck. Due to the fact that British horseracing has no true Interference  Rules, and no true Whip Rules either.  There are no True Global Rules of Horseracing whatsoever. Pot luck there then needed as well. Making horseracing anywhere in the world far more dangerous than it should ever be. Equus communication's are the same anywhere in the world. From the horses point of view, that is.

 
 


"Happy New Year is a doomed expression of hope, like wishing every trainer interviewed before today's Coral Welsh Grand National good luck. "Thank you, Jim. Good luck." "Thank you Gary. Good luck. " "Thank you, Jim. Good luck. "Thank you,  Paul. ... Rebecca ... Nigel ... Emma ... Jonjo ... Good luck. " 
Yes, yes, yes David very funny indeed! Yes truly funny.  I mean that being funny more like 

being Absurd!
   

"It's like going up to Winston Churchill before the D-day landings and saying, "Good  luck Winston, " then phoning Adolf Hitler and saying, "Good luck, Adolph. " They can't both win, can they? You've got to make up your mind. Do you want Winston to win, or Adolf? "
Yes, yes, yes David very funny indeed! Yes truly funny.  I mean that being funny more like 

being Absurd!


"A better approach might be to say. "Good luck, Gary. I hope Well Refreshed comes second to Goonyella, because that's what I've backed. Lets hope Well Refreshed puts in one of those cracking blunders of his at the last fence. " Yes, yes, yes David very funny indeed! Yes truly funny.  I mean that being funny more like 
being Absurd!

 

"Paul, good luck with Hawkes Point. I've laid Tidal Bay for a place so I hope he goes a bit strange like he used to in the old days, and comes fifth. Did you know that no horse has won the Welsh National carrying 11st 12lbs since Carvill's Hill in 1991? Still, he'll win a few bob for coming fifth, won't he? " I'll take your word for it David.

 

"Not that it matters whether you wish anyone good luck or not. Someone has a bet and you say, "Good luck. " what's the point of that? Who's listening? I suppose  it's better than saying, I've never liked you much. I hope it gets stuffed. "
Yes, yes, yes David very funny indeed! Yes truly funny.  I mean that being funny more like 

being Absurd!


"But, no, a jockey's about to get mounted and you say, "Good luck. " It might be better to say, "try not to fall off at the last, like you did last time, " or, my preference, "Try not to cock it up". Yes, yes, yes David very funny indeed! Yes truly funny.  I mean that being funny more like being Absurd!

 

"If I was a trainer (I'm not), I'd have a set of standard instructions plus specific ones for particular races. The standard instructions would be:

"1. Do not sit a long way off a slow pace. It makes people think you are either stupid or not off. Graham Lee's change over from Jumps to Flat. Graham a brilliant Jumps rider. Has achieved so much more now riding on the Flat, without the dreaded falls and injuries he had to put up with so often over the jumps.

 

"2. Do not set or chase a blatantly too-fast pace. It makes people think you are either stupid or not off. People have got it wrong then, including the political, horseracing, legal and financial governments. Steeple chasing the most dangerous of all horse races. Needing the very best riders of all to compete at this level, the need for accurate jumping is vital. The pitfalls can be what the other competitors are doing all around you, the mistakes that they may suddenly make, that can change a race in an instant.  Unexpected mistakes

 

3. Do bear in mind that, if the going is heavy, making up ground  is likely to be the same.
Yes, yes, yes.
 

"4. As you approach the final obstacle, remind yourself that, if you don't finish, you can't win. As Mark Winstanley memorably put it, when a jockey was criticized for being too careful at a fence, "I'd rather that than see him lying on his ******* back, staring up at the ******* stars. " Arm chair rider assumptions are out of place, out of tune with this sport along with unbelievable dark age government error out of the Ark.

 

" 5. Before deciding to stick on the inside rail at Wolverhampton or Southwell, satisfy yourself that this isn't an approach popular with non-triers.

 

"6. If you have to decide whether to go inside or outside, go outside. Watching you get beaten because you can't get a run.


"7. Follow my instructions,

 
"8. Good luck, "


"Quiz of the year

"Since this is the season for end-of-year quizzes, I'd better give you one. it's a quotations quiz. Who said?

1. "No-one ever killed himself while holding an anti-post voucher for the Derby. "

 
2. "On his death bed- "That's life. "
Welcome to Embalming 101
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cTVn30XSeE
Ashes to Ashes  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stVvCeVy3Sw


3. "Upon watching a horse fall at the final fence. "A fool and his horse are easily parted. "
Or how about a punter and his money are easily parted? AND  how is a punter to understand the true Equus Rules of horseracing when the British Stewards don't know what they are themselves?

 

4. "A chef may create puddings all his life yet never surpass the humble apple pie. "
Another one of the government slaves.
 

5. "The gambler represents the triumph of hope over experience in its purest form. "

 

6. "There is no music I prefer to the sound of silence. "



7. "I keep training because it has always been my ambition for a jockey to  follow my instruction. " No,  a jockey guides his horse throughout a race according to that horses needs, during that race. Purpose to win that race together intact.  No one else can do that. A suitable jockey to partner a specific racehorse is arranged beforehand. eg: The care taken by trainer Colin Tizzard over a suitable jockey for Cue Card. His son Jo always partner Cue Card. Cue Card and Jo Tizzard know each other well. Cue Card does not have a whole lot of different riders to listen to every day to confuse him.  Same as Torvill and Dean the ice dancers

8. "The trouble with philosophers, is too much thinking, not enough knowing.

 

9. "It is often said that a horse loves jumping, yet I have never seen one jump a fence in its own paddock. "

 

10. "On hearing that a friend intended to marry a large lady- "marry her? Impossible! You mean a part of her. He could not marry her all himself. You might people a colony with her, or take your morning's walk around her, always providing there were frequent resting places. But marry her!"

 

"Happy New Year, and Good Luck" .

What is really going on behind the scenes of the British Government's National Health System?

The Government's NHS sickening communication problem.
 That is causing horrific death to billion's of British people.


People left to die in hospital beds alone in shocking pain, with perhaps a couple of  Paracetamol  thrown in for Good Luck maybe ....


BILLIONS OF PEOPLE FACING THE TRAUMER OF PAIN AND SUFFERING UNTIL DEATH.

DESMOND CULLEN GLOBAL HORSERACING PIONEER IN THE SADDLE.
 
  AND AFTERWARDS HIS JOURNEY INTO DAILY SUFFERANCE.THROUGH THE LOSS OF HIS RIDING CAREER.
 
Finding himself removed from his loyal daily working environment. Misunderstood
and tossed aside as of no further use to all bloodhorse illiterate governments.  
  

A top global professional horseracing rider handler pioneer,  a lightweight Flat Turf jockey
of the highest calibre who thrilled global racecourse crowds for over 20 years.
Riding through ten bad falls and the concussions that followed . Cutting his race riding career short. A situation that finally ended his career in the saddle for good.
 
 Desmond still has his racing brain mindset as sharp as ever in theory, intact.
Badly misunderstood by 95 percent of the people near him since, and ongoing throughout to this very day. racing talent wasted within a British Horseracing government environment who couldn't care less about the people or  the horses who create horseracing every day at the dangerous sharp end.

 

Throughout DESMOND'S riding career he found that he had a gift and feel for the racehorses he partnered. Desmond found that all the racehorses responded to his gestures of gentle kindness and understanding.
 
The week after the Breeders Cup 2013 Des went back into Basingstoke hospital. Just before Christmas Day, Des was taken from the Basingstoke hospital to the invisible fortress that is Pemberley House,  Basingstoke. Taken from poverty and hardship left ongoing over decades. Into the fortress luxury found within Pemberley House with every comfort provided within a peaceful environment inside. The inside of Pemberley House  found to be a fortress.

 


INVISIBLE FORTRESS FROM THE OUTSIDE THAT IS PEMBERLEY HOUSE
BASINGSTOKE.  A FORTRESS ON THE INSIDE.

The rise and fall of the workhouse
For many, the word ‘workhouse’ conjures up the image of an orphaned Oliver Twist begging for food from a cruel master. The reality, however, was somewhat different, and Britain’s system of poor relief arguably saved thousands of people from starvation over the course of its 300-year history.

SECRETS OF THE WORKHOUSE 3pm this afternoon ITV

Actor Brian Cox is furious: "The injustice of it astonishing ... it's an absolute  outrage. " "He's just learnt that his disabled great-grandfather was officially classed by Victorian society as a "malingerer" .  His is one of a clutch of stories revealed to often  tearful celebrities about their ill-used poverty stricken ancestors in this narrower version of Who  Do You Think You Are?, first shown last June.

 

"TV presenter Fern Britton discovers the ignominy faced by one of her relatives even after his death in the workhouse, while novelist Barbara Taylor-Bradford goes to the forbidden institution that was home to her mother. "

NELSON MANDELLA'S FIGHT FOR FREEDOM

The name Nelson Mandela is synonymous with the universal struggle

for human rights, freedom and democracy. He will go down in

history as one of the world’s great statesmen, not only for the impact

his leadership had on the lives of South Africans, but because

he inspired people across the globe to fight for their own rights.

 

Even as a young man, he showed his mettle by his refusal to compromise his

principles under pressure, and by his willingness to make great personal sacrifices.

 

He spent almost a third of his life in prison, but even behind bars he could

never be ignored, remaining a political force to be reckoned with.

 

During the four difficult years that followed his release from prison, it was

his extraordinary skill at reaching out to his political enemies that brought the

country back from anarchy, violence and hatred.

 

Even in his last years, having left public office, he continued to be an inspiring

advocate for peace and social justice around the world, and – following the

death of his own son – a determined campaigner for AIDS awareness.

 

This e-book, a compilation of photographs, mementos and quotes, is Brand

South Africa’s tribute to the life of a man who, more than anyone else, can be

said to have saved South Africa.

FRIDAY JANUARY 3rd 2014

  British ‘workhouses’ from the 1620s,

"By the end of the 17th century, care under one roof was widely regarded as the most effective way of saving money and, as a result, the early 1700s saw a flurry of workhouses opening.

 

"Yet workhouses only really became part of Britain’s social landscape after 1723, when Sir Edward Knatchbull’s Workhouse Test Act won parliamentary approval. The act embodied the principle that the prospect of the workhouse should act as a deterrent and that relief should only be available to those desperate enough to accept its regime. Its impact on the provision of poor relief was dramatic: by the 1770s the number of parish workhouses in England and Wales had soared to around 2,000.

 

"Conditions during the early 19th century, though, meant the government was forced to reassess the way it helped the most impoverished members of society. The return of unemployed or injured servicemen from the Napoleonic Wars saw the national poor relief bill quadruple between 1795 and 1815, rising from £2 million to £8 million. To make matters worse, new Corn Laws restricted grain imports and pushed up the cost of bread.
 

"The government’s response was to pass a Poor Law Amendment Act in 1834, based on the recommendation of a royal commission. The new system was still funded by rate payers, but was now administered by unions – groupings of parishes – presided over by a locally elected Board of Guardians. Each union was responsible for providing a central workhouse for its member parishes, and out relief was abolished except in special cases. For the able-bodied poor, it was the workhouse or nothing.

 

"Until 1860, medical provision in the workhouses was often dire, with nursing duties generally performed by elderly female inmates, many of whom could not read, were hard of hearing,  and visually impaired,

 

"During the 1840s, to introduce casual blocks, where the homeless could stay for one night per 30-day period. In the 1880s these rules changed, and vagrants could stay two nights, perform one day’s work and be released at dawn on the third day.

 

"The mid-19th century saw many so-called ‘social explorers’ and journalists disguise themselves as vagrants and admit themselves to casual wards to experience this treatment for themselves.

 

"Historians are still debating when exactly the workhouse system came to an
end. Some date its demise to 1930 when the Board of Guardians system was abolished and many workhouses were re designated as Public Assistance Institutions, becoming the responsibility of local councils. Others date it to 1948 and the introduction of the National Health Service, when many former workhouse buildings were turned into public hospitals, many of which still survive today."


FURTHER EVIDENCE
Charles John Huffam Dickens (/ˈtʃɑrlz ˈdɪkɪnz/; 7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period.[1] During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars.

 

BRITISH GOVERNMENT and CHURCH OF ENGLAND IMPOSTORS CALUMNY and CRUELTY

The done thing in a false hypocritical  British Society  in which the Church of England resides to dictate and suppress .  The very worst kind of dictate, colluding with others in secret to take someone else's life and career from them. A corrupt act. Brought to life through Charles Dickens Novels,  Anna Sewells  Black Beauty, and the Workhouse System.

Black Beauty is an 1877 novel by English author Anna Sewell
