Thoroughbreds are so crazy that the groom can drop the shank on an active breeding stallion and he does absolutely nothing.

That is just... a REALLY inelegant, unfortunate name. :roll:
Its the name of a National Park in Australia. It doesn't sound bad with proper pronunciation.
That's a relief! (assuming the race callers/commentators do say it properly :mrgreen: )

Re: Racing in Japan

I was up late and watched it, great finish! Although I wonder if Danon Smash had been able to get off the rail and clear a little bit earlier, what might have been a fantastic stretch duel... What you can't see in the finish photo is good ol' Let's Go Donki - she's seven now and was absolutely FLYIN...

Of course not. Koalas are slow; he thinks he's a big, long-legged kangaroo.
With the angle of that photo, he could pass for one! :lol:
