The Draw: Worked out in action in practice, split the field in two, one bunch racing on the far side rail, and the other bunch racing on the near side stands rail. Kieren Fallon racing on the far side rail switched late on.
IN EQUUS CONTEXT
Taken in context here, and applied to Saturday’s 2,000
we saw the winner Night of Thunder partner Kieren Fallon racing on the far side
rail for the early part of this race. It was not until later on
that Night of Thunder drifted across the middle of the track towards the bunch
of colts racing on the stands side rail. Guineas
Kieren said afterwards that Night Of Thunder remembering where he had first come out onto the racetrack, and
had it in his mind to get back there as soon as he possibly could, and in his haste to go home Night Of Thunder won this race. It would be interesting to know who rides Night of Thunder out every day at home.
It is interesting to notice also how quickly Clive Brittain’s little dancing gig gesture first performed when one of his horses won, Clive finding himself in the winner’s enclosure did his little dancing gig gesture to show his winner how pleased he was with him, Clive believed his winner would understand his dancing gestures. In the media now Clive’s little dancing gig has been taken out of context.
