Tough going last week, I think my losses during the week at the Newmarket festival clouded my judgement on betting so heavily on Ramonti.
I didn't see the race live but on the replays on ATR Ramonti just didn't get going, Bin Surror said he'd need the race but to come 5th in a Group 2 when he;d won 6 group 1's last year is a shock to say the least....still take it on the chin I suppose.
14.00 -Cape Vale €50 win @ 15 - €50
Victorian Bounty €25 place @ 5 - €25
14.35 -Lucky Leigh €50 win @ 4.6 - €50
15.10 -Heaven Sent €50 win @ 6 - €50
14.55 - Ramonti €500 @ 3.23 - €500 ouch......
15.35 - Rio De La Plata €100 win @ 5.2 - €100
14.45 - Master Plaster €50 win @ 8.2 + €460
End of Week Balance - €4009
A very tough week all in all.....a race horse is very much like a beautiful woman.....Stunning, brings joy....good times a plenty but you need to know if the relationship has peaked and it's time to let go.
Ramonti & myself enjoyed our Summer of love last year but has he peaked and is it time to move on? It'll be make or break at Goodwood!!
