Rio at Ludlow
Posted by jolono on Thu, 16 Jan 2014
So much for putting him away for a few months! That was the plan but the stable is in great form so we decided to give him a run out today at Ludlow. Where is Ludlow? I hear you ask. Well, imagine the end of the world and then a bit farther than that!
It's in Shropshire and close to Wales. From London the train takes over 3 hours and then theres a short cab ride. To be honest for a race that lasts a few minutes its not worth it. Even though I love Rio and want to see him run everywhere he goes the thought of over eight hours travelling there and back is just too much.
So I'll be watching it in a bar in the City with a glass of something cold in my hand.
He's favourite today, 2-1. Its not an easy race and once again hes the youngest in the line up.
He's in the 3.10 race so if you get a chance to watch it, give him a cheer please.
I'm staying in the bar for a while afterwards and meeting up with Karl Wiggins. Might have a sore head tomorrow!
