    Default Got bored with racing

    So thought I would spice things up and get amongst it. Bought some shares in a horse, because, well, I was bored with racing. Now I am excited, but still don't know if the ****er can run. Anyway, here is (assuming 100% gets sold), what is keeping me going for the next couple of months until hopefully it starts off its racing career.
    Win or lose, I am getting amongst it.......

    I hope he turns out to be the best horse in Australia. What is his name ?

    Would be good, but I will be happy with just winning a couple of races.

    Unnamed at present, need all shares to be sold then will have names presented to the commission and one chosen.
    Paid up for all the big races, but we will see. Was a cheap horse, but these guys are pretty good at what they do, so just hoping I get a good thrill out of it. Anything more would be a bonus, and likely put straight into another (hopefully others).

    Wouldn't worry about the name, you will all likely be kept up to date, regardless of what happens with it. Will be no aftertiming here. May never see the racetrack of course, but a beautiful horse, at least imho......

    Just turned 2 (Aus all horses 2 at 1/8, foaled mid Sept). Oct 1 sees the start of the 2YO season.

    Fine, but don't forget, if you want some names, I'm your man.

    To be honest, I have some names. Always seems to come up at the pub in the old "if I had a horse I would call it............"...

    Just that mine all seem to have the common theme of "My _enter body part here_".....

    Can just imagine the 2013 Golden Slipper a packed house at Rosehill screaming "Come on... Come on Myface, Myback" etc etc etc

    Doesn't tie in with the old mishmash of SireDam names as per usual, but, well, I don't really claim to have much imagination....

    Frankel II?

    you could call it Chip temujin or make him a more balanced individual and call it it Doublechip (one for each shoulder) .

    If he's even partially successful you'll probably have started an association until your deathbed. I can imagine you dreaming of cox plate success every night now. I just hope he's not so good he scares off the opposition.

    hope the horse does well for you whatever happens.

    Yeah, ideally you would be able to hedge the potential prize money, but I won't go down that route. Won't be touching any of its races unless I am backing it. Will be more than likely on the piss somewhere anyway...
