Big kudos to Joe for getting this up and running! Great place to be where members help each other, and there are no keyboard-warrior-type-balloons to be bothered with!!

Always had a 'glancing' interest in racing due to spending most Saturdays in front of the TV with my Grandad watching it. Sadly, not as idyllic as it sounds. The old bastard would rarely give me one of his Pick n' Mix.

Being born in Cheltenham may also have something to do with it! More recently, but a while ago, real interest was ignited by getting involved with one with a work colleague and some friends. Whilst she was rubbish, it was amazing fun, and she did have the impressive stat of never coming last (FIRST MAID | Horse | Form, Results and Ratings | Timeform)!

Even more recently, moved over to Ireland in October 2016 (yes, because of that....the only positive I've yet to evidence of Brexit). We live in the mountains in a part of the country (Carlow/Wexford border) where you are never far away from NH racing. It's a second language here;

"You OK? Kids/Wife OK? No one died? Good! Have you seen Willie has one out at..........".

Enjoying life here, many P2P's locally, touching distance to some big tracks, and invariably being a taxi to the stables for my eldest to go riding!

Promise to try and make an effort and actually participate rather than lurk!
