MUSINGS FROM A RETIRED RACING ENTHUSIAST
 
"Crosse's winter of discontent deserves to come to an end. "
Pic: "John Upson: quiet spell since Zeta's Lad and Nick The Brief. "
EDNA O'BRIEN once wrote a book called August is a Wicked Month. She obviously hadn't been paying enough attention in November, or December.
"If O'Brien had been at Wincanton on November 21 she could have watched a cruel incident. As Foxcub, approached the final hurdle it was all that stood  between jockey Dave Crosse  and victory, Crosse went for it and Foxcub, veering right, came down.

 
"Nothing so unusual in that, A  horse falls at the last obstacle , the sufferers groan and count the cost, the beneficiaries donate commiserations, and time moves heedlessly on. Yet it was a bit more painful than usual, because it was Crosse's only ride of the day and made it 242 days and 80 rides since his last winner. Another drive home, more thinking, perhaps a soupcon of depression, and I hadn't even backed it.

 
"Crosse, champion amateur jump jockey  in 2001-02, is a positive, resilient character, someone with the great gift of being able to look on the bright side. In the lively blog he writes for lovetheraces, he wrote: "These things happen and I was absolutely gutted but you can't let it get you down. " "I don't know why not. I think I would have.

 
"As the end of December approached, Cross was still waiting for his luck to change. At Doncaster on December 29th, Haatefina, at 20-1, approached the final hurdle clear of her rivals and still galloping strongly. This was surely it;  the day had finally come. Haatefina made a hash of the last and was caught near the line by Red Four Again, it was Crosse's only ride. An even longer drive home to Lambourn.

 
"To look on the bright side, there were no broken bones, unlike 2009, when Cross managed to break two in the same leg at the same time. Things perked up on Christmas Day when Crosse's girlfriend Rebecca Greaves agreed to marry him.

 
"Today, Crosse goes to Warwick for one ride for Zoe Davison, who has a long drought of her own to contend with. Please, please, someone, put him on a winner.


 
"Crosse isn't alone. A lot of jockeys and trainers make long journeys for one ride, one runner. Some of them have been waiting a very long time for a winner. When Bruslini and Ravens Secret were unplaced at Doncaster on Wednesday, it took trainer Tracey Barfoot-Saint's wait for a winner under rules to  2,797 days  and 163 runners. Jockey Mr Geoff Barfoot-Saint's equally long famine embraced 98 rides. Their last success under rules was when Mixsterthexstrixter won a chase at Worcester in May 2006.

 
"Theirs isn't the longest wait by a current trainer. Nicholas  Pomfret  also had a runner at Doncaster. First Lad was tailed off in a novice hurdle, at 200-1, to provide Pomfret with his 99th successive loser. His last winner was in March 2005, when Cool Chilli sprang a surprise in a maiden chase at Catterick.

 
"AT DONCASTER, John Upson, who once enjoyed some glorious days with Nick The Brief and Zeta's Lad, watched  Oak Wood become his 88th successive loser.  Upson's last winner was when Wishes Or Watches won a three-runner chase at Plimpton in April 2011.

 
"There are plenty of other trainers in a similar situation and they can all take heart from Total Assets' plucky victory at Newcastle last Saturday, which provided Simon Waugh with his first winner since Sleeping Night won a hunter chase at Kelso in February 2008.

 
"Trainers with long losing runs often have few horses and few runners and they are certainly not training as a route to riches. Nor are the many jockeys who battle on through thick and thin (thin, mainly)  living in hope, enjoying the excitement and camaraderie if not the prizes.


 
"It's been over a year, although only 68 rides, since Mattie Batchelor, who won the 2011 Hennessy Gold Cup on Carruthers, last rode a winner. At least it was a good one when Carruthers' half- brother Coneygree won the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham in December 2012.
 
 
 
"Hopefully, relief will soon be on its way, as it was for Jimmy Quinn on Wednesday when Costa Filey's victory at Kempton ended an untypical two-month, 98-ride drought.


 
"Few trainers or jockeys are totally immune from frustrating losing runs. Even the prolific Tim Vaughan  is enduring a mini-famine,  not having had a winner since Oscars Den's success at Carlisle on December 15, 35 runners ago.


 
"Training and riding racehorses involves an awful lot of fruitless journeys defeats and disappointments, I look at some trainers and jockeys and wonder how they survive, and what keeps them going. For many, the answer lies in the horses and the people, a passion and a way of life.


 
"Let's hope that some of those who have been waiting for so long have a winner this week. "

You have to think with your horse always. Not just for yourself.

Every horse is different,  just the same,  as every person is
different. You have to compete as one in a horserace.

Where are the True Equus Horseracing Rules for British Horseracing, both in Theory and in Practice?

How can the British governments possibly expect British Horseracing to be run  without any True Equus Rules? How are all the true horseman who have achieved bloodhorse literacy in their own right expected to cope with there horses at home and on the racetracks around the world without any True Equus Rules of Horseracing?


How can the British governments possibly expect Global and British Horseracing to be run without any True Global Equus Rules? How are all the true global horseman who have achieved  true bloodhorse literacy in their own right expected to cope with there horses at home and on the racetracks around the world without any True Global Equus Rules?


How are true Home and Global Horsemen supposed to cope without any True Equus Rules in Britain? Or around the world?

THE SPORT OF GLOBAL HORSERACING BEING RUN WITHOUT TRUE EQUUS RULES. How can these governments possibly expect British and  Global Horsemen who work at the dangerous sharp end of British and Global Horseracing know how to ride a thoroughbred racehorse in training?
