Did Faugheen “hack up” in the first race? I used the term in The 51 due to the way he left the field for dead after the last. Was this a valid use of it?

I thought Red Sherlock jumped to his right a few times - at least he did until he got a bump from that Gigginstown horse. I think they should switch him to a right handed course for his next outing.

‘I am pleased for the horse’

@Mac laid Annie Power today. Not for a lot of money, mind. Fair play to him, it seems to have cheered him right up anyway.

Paul Nicholls ( well known horse “trainer”) just said one of his horses who “retired” today was " a very, very honest fella"…now all jokes aside , this is fucking insane, eerie in fact.
