Wk.6.EPSOM DOWNS,THE DERBY Saturday July 4th 21

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Lucy, its shows how hard it is to win, you picked 2 certain horses to win you some money but we forgot to tell the horses.
was strange how they changed jockeys, i recon it was either a set up to get better odds or Kirby got the hump and rode for revenge.

Any its shows its just luck by who's top. :lol: :lol: :lol:
plus All White chooses her horses by the name of the horse and she's 2nd :?

As they say, there's always next week.

'It's mad, it's crazy' - Adam Kirby revels in breakthrough Classic on Adayar
To be able to ride class horses when you're just a run-of-the-mill jockey, and to then get a chance to deliver on a big day, is a marvellous feeling.

Had he not first been rejected, Adam Kirby would not now be rejoicing.

There are many ups, downs, twists and turns from one end of Epsom racecourse to the other. At the finish of this sun-drenched Cazoo Derby they felt like a metaphor for the week experienced by a long, lean athlete who shrugged off his self-confessed unglamorous reputation to scale the greatest of all Flat racing peaks aboard Adayar.

As Wednesday afternoon began, Kirby was looking forward to having only his second Derby ride aboard one of the leading fancies, John Leeper, a horse he had guided around Epsom's strange contours in a gallop just nine days earlier.

Excitement turned to dejection when Frankie Dettori became available and John Leeper's connections switched riders. Kirby was suddenly without a Derby mount – but not for long.
