The connections of nakeeta were vindicated in taking the horse down under after finishing a creditable fifth & collecting over $150,000 in prize money.

I'll go for ACES HIGH but A PRINCE OF ARRAN has got to be worth a try.
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

Sadly, Cliffs of Moher was injured during the race and had to be put down . Thats the up and downs of horse racing .

Watched it on the ship's big on-deck screen while in the Coral Sea? I had a few Budweiser - 'cause they ran out of Aussie Crown Lagers. Most of the women had packed their fantasizers and dressed up - well they were mostly Melbourne folks and were just doing what they do each year at home. :roll:
