I got hooked and addicted by Illustrador, Roland Song, Senor Santa, Aqaunaut... those were the days locally... wow!

International interest begun around Oath winning the Derby and then Montjieu, that’s when I was over there working and saw these horses live and in flesh. Dubai Millennium winning at Doncaster was my first live race I watched as I walked on to my first racecourse in the UK...and then I was lucky enough to see him win at Ascot again and was lucky enough to work with the Dewhurst winner a year later, Distant Music. Great memories..

Locally it’s not the same but I still get a thrill for the UK racing. They just seem to keep tradition, which is what keeps interest.

A day we will never forget, Divine Act won its maiden by 16 lenghts

......and named as such because of his size.....as his mother was a squib in fact a twin bought and imported by unsuspecting top breeders ....who sold her off with Teal in the belly....:whistle:
