Sport. The very fine margins. The difference between winning and losing. The moments that define a career. The moments that define a life.

There has been an awful lot of talk recently about FOBT’s. About levels of prize money. About fighting in the bars, and fighting on the lawns. About a crisis within BHA Towers. About housing reviews in Newmarket and Kempton. At times, it would be easy to forget that horse racing is not about petty politics and in-fighting, but is actually about sport. A brilliant, wonderful, enriching sport that pulls at the heart strings, and drags the emotions hither and thither.
