Southwell Sou’westers

southwellJust the one winner for the blog last night on the beach at Laytown when Saratoga Baby (Miss J M Mangan, 11/4 joint-fav) won by an impressive 2¾ lengths. @PollyRogers on twitter was particularly happy with the result as she had visited Saratoga racetrack the day before and I emailed her to back it.

135 entries were revealed today for the Melbourne Cup on the 5th November. Do you have an ante-post fancy at this stage?
