Hadn't heard about the human horse JeFa - was he a streaker too or just a runner?
Crazy person. A former co-worker had that newspaper story on his wall or something. It was a funny pic. Dude looked like he thought he could win.

Of course, any small thing will disqualify the race.

I went to Pimlico a couple of times. That place is just plain nuts. Nothing like having 100,000 people all drunk at the same time, in the same place. Most of them forget all about the races.

The racetrack for the Melbourne Cup has had 130000 people. A lot of people go just to drink. There are also a lot of fashion shows. Fashion & Horse Racing are closely linked in Australia.

Sydney's big races are during Autumn. My TAFE was right across the road from the track last year. I like horse racing. Horses seem to have personality.

It's fun to watch, but I'd never gamble on it.

And horses do have personalities. Every one I've ever had definitely had his own personality.

Was in Louisville once for the Derby. Went to the Louisville Slugger museum instead.

I only bet on the Melbourne Cup and it's my dad's money anyway. My Uncle has a horse in NZ. It answers to it's name. Pretty cool.

Quoting yourself CTom, you're losing it.

That ain't me, that's vBulletin. Remember the other day when it put Dekal's name on your post?

Just a hiccup in the software, I reckon.
