100 yards isn’t exactly what we would call a decent run, at least not when it comes to horses. When it comes to ourselves that’s a marathon.
The 4/1 favourite in today’s 1.30 at York, Flag Officer, pulled up after just 100 yards of the race. That’s as good as not running at all. You didn’t get a run for your money and we’d feel a little dirty keeping hold of it, so Paddy Power has refunded all losing bets on Flag Officer in this race.
Now that’s what we call justice.
