New (Shit) Football Kits

It’s that time of the year when the Premier League clubs release yet another football kit. And this year is no different… except the fact that the kits appear to be getting worse!

Race 2 (3:05) – Hardwicke Stakes (Group 2)

The Hardwicke is a Group 2 for horses of either sex, aged four years or older. The race is run over a mile and a half.

10 runners go to post in this year’s renewal and again Aiden O’Brien saddles the favourite. Await The Dawn (4/5) is held in high regard by connections but is yet to race over 1m 4f.

An interesting stat is that nine of the last ten winners of the Harwicke [Read full article »]
