Sad day at the races.

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.

Yes that's great news aye, It didn't sound to good did it, I think landing on the vans roof probably cushioned the blow, It will be interesting to see what exactly happened,

changing the subject.
I changed this weeks race from the Eclipse to the The CORAL DISTAFF as there was only a maximum of 7 runners in the Eclipse. would have been good for me as it meant the odds was only 7/1 i got a winner LOL

Only 4 Runners now. (thursday)
