The wooden spoon prize was having to meow out loud everytime someone a person came to look through the cattery (instead of the bell which had broken just 2 days earlier). All of us put our names in a hat. I was drawn out 10th meaning I had a horse called Franklins Gardens. Not the favourite but an outside chance at a place.

And well guess which horse came last by about 200-300 metres....mine

Although meowing for the day was reasonable exciting, thankfully not many people through the cattery and a nice old lady even gave me 10 bucks for doing such a nice job of it

(P.S. I've told heaps of you this story before, but I just thought I better say it again here)

What city are you in

For anyone in Christchurch just letting you know Addington Raceway is having a day of celebration for this. At 2pm the doors open, then at 5pm (local time) the race starts and it will be on live on a MASSIVE screen with great surround sound. Then at 7pm the Addington Raceway will run its schedule as usual.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

I'll be in it if I get Purple Moon or Sarrera. (Just joking - you could give me Eskimo Queen or Gallic too).
