I love jumps racing (Steeplechasing to you guys) as year in year out the same horses return. Some try their hand at bigger obstacles, some move up from the breeding ground of the flat and some constantly win the big prizes. Kauto Star goes for his 5th King George VI in less than 10 days. My American first love was Santa Anita where I used to wager on every Rafael Bejerano ride (not a bad way to start!) until the love affair with the rest of the US Racing scene became stronger. I've been fortunate to see horses that so many in the UK will never see or understand and I hope that Uncle Mo will add his name to that ever growing list.
First track attended:
Ascot (Regular at Ascot, Newmarket every summer)
