A proper job!
I just wanted to get in touch having read the excellent Razor Ashmore story today. Having been proud to represent Boylesports for many years now I’ve obviously been witness to many gambles , some successful and some not so. The gamble on Razor Ashmore by Brendan Matthews and the team is one that even all these years later is vivid in my memory. It would have to go down as one of the most well executed coursing gambles I’ve had chance to witness. We were hit at all rates from 16/1 down to 5/1 before a course had been run. We’d have been concerned regardless but when news broke that the dog had been in the hands of Brendan Matthews , it was enough to send a shiver down your spine. We were hoping for a result to go our way but with each passing round the inevitable conclusion drew ever nearer. The gamble cost the company a fortune but you had to take your hat off to the Newry maestro.
Because of the dearth of any action for 2 months I’m sure that most owners would love to see their pride and joy having their regrading trial(s). Surely it isn’t asking too much for the tracks to show these live and/or recorded on either their own websites or such as Twitter?
Nottingham and Towcester have done this in the past, it can’t be too difficult to do and would make us long suffering owners happy.
