Horse racing is much more than an excuse for gambling. It is a love for the beauty, grace and speed of the horse. It can also be an intellectual battle of examining competing facts and trying to formulate the future from results of the past. In some ways it is an investigation, as performed by an eager detective. And in other ways it can be the thrill of a crossword puzzle, with multiple possible responses, but ultimately only one correct answer. It is a thing of beauty as much as it is a matter of commerce. I have been involved with horse racing in both practical and intellectual ways. From time spent as an apprentice jockey, to later the research of bloodlines in the multimillion dollar world of thoroughbred breeding and sales. And for the past twelve years I have provided speedrating information to the racing industry and public through my company: Speedratings - Leonard Marlborough.

The Black Caviar Lightning Stakes

February 17th 2013 03:36
First faced with fears that she might never race again - then confronting the possibility that this may be her last race start - Black Caviar returned to the racetrack for the first time since her Royal Ascot triumph (yes, under the difficulties faced, it was a triumph) and broke a long standing track record to demolish her rivals and win The Black Caviar Lightning Stakes.
