Flashy colt Mighty Boss is seeking to add another Caulfield G1 to his resume in tomorrow’s Futurity Stakes (1400m). Check out our bio link for our comprehensive preview of a stacked Blue Diamond card ☝️
Today, I took a lesson with the woman who taught me how to ride--the woman who was my trainer from the time I was six until I was eleven. It was so much fun!! We talked for over an hour about the local horse world, old riding memories, and horse talk! 🐴🐴🐴🐴🐴 This is Gentleman; he's an OTTB, but after he was taken off the track, we evented for a while; now, he's mainly hunter/jumper/eq oriented. He's older now, 21 I think, but he's such a good old man! He's not spooky, and he was probably the most forgiving horse I've ridden in a while. I rode okay today, but my riding was honestly not even close to my best; as you can see, I had a little bit of trouble keeping my leg tight and beneath me, and I also should be sitting up straighter. But despite my mistakes, Gentleman didn't rush at the fence, chip, run out, or refuse--he just jumped every single fence beautifully and smoothly!!
It's all about pops of colour when it comes to ladies' #festivalofracing fashion. Love @gigi_connolly's hot pink and red look styled by our lovely Fashion Ambassador @lanawilkinson for the Festival of Racing launch a few weeks back. #theracesarecalling
