    Yes I've owned a few myself and know the feeling! The price and regularity of the dentist was the one that always took me by surprise the most...
    Dentist, massages, ..... If only people from outside of racing could realise how well they get treated. If every little issue was reported publicly you wouldnt be able to have an antepost bet. It's very eye opening.

    Yeh , it's good fun his marks a little high over fences possibly but hes still got room to improve physically. He's done well since they put him back out to grass after his bumper where he was tailed off and paul said he was very weak and needed to strengthen up.

    And how hard it is to make the game pay!

    Good luck with him. At least he knows how to win, which is a pretty good start.

    Really like the Sao shout for this race Rowebot

    Without wanting to derail the thread too much - Scooby & CCM - for horses you have been involved in - have they been through syndicates / part/full ownership? From the little i've heard and from the snippets you guys have posted it sounds like you need a hell of a lot of luck and patience but is it worth it even with all the fees and setbacks? One of my dreams one day to be involved with a horse(s)

    I've always been in a group of 3, 4 or 5 myself Jono. Small enough to feel like you have a say, but big enough to spread the horrendous costs! Last year was the first for a long time that I haven't been involved as an owner, but the price of a decent horse appears increasingly ridiculous to me now. We were incredibly lucky to get some decent horses at decent prices and don't think we would have the same success again. But always got one ear open for an opportunity.

    I'd say 100% it's worth it though. If you love the game, like you clearly do, it's the biggest buzz in the world. And just being the other side of the fence, so to speak, is such a great experience.

    Wonder if they'd give him a Mark right now, and no idea what it would be. 1 win obviously we have a dream behind and classy animals infront of him. but they won't take that mark literally through we have a dreams current mark id have thought even thought that form should stand up.
    If be pretty confident the plan would be triumph at this stage. But depends what he goes and does. There's some very good horses that have the potential to be given a silly mark without running over here.

    I would LOVE to be wrong, but with literally every single runner Frankel has had on the flat, they're priced based on reputation before they do anything.... so I'd be amazed, albeit it was a nice debut.

    Fat Jockey Horse?

    Was torn between the two..... but Act of Valour trimmed to 33/1, so 25/1 NRNB wins for me

    and scooby, which horse did I mention on the other thread?

    I was kind of thinking the same, I am really not into flat racing at all, but everyone knows about frankel. I own a pub in Scottish Borders and this horse has been mentioned by some of the race punters. Having said that they do love flat racing too!

    Solo Saxophone beat a horse called Outcrop 4 lengths. Act of Valour beat the same horse 59 lengths. May have been reasons for that but I know who i'd rather take a punt on

    Cheers Rob. Probably in short backs up my theory that the 25/1 is priced on the Sire rather than the horses ability.
