Racing interest:
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)
Location:
Hornchurch
About me/racing interests:
An international handicapper and horse racing lover from Meydan to Mountaineer, Sha Tin to Santa Anita, Ascot to Aqueduct - no track is too small for me to enjoy the sport I love.

How did I get into racing?
A friend invited me to a birthday function at a race track where in my very first 'live' race I fell in love with a horse called Spanish Moon who happened to be my first winner. Since then I have been hooked and have developed a world wide love for the 'sport of kings'

Favorite racing moment?
Tough choice....When Spanish Moon won his first G1 at Saint-Cloud after I'd followed him up from handicaps was special but so was Zenyatta (finally) racing the boys and winning in the 2009 BCC and Rachel's incredible Haskell domination and who can forget the incredible Kauto Star (Still in training)!
