Apparently she wants only a small stable of horses. I expect there may be a few owners looking to send her a few horses when this happens.

I doubt the Taips, Bid Dog and Henry Syndicate will be sending their horse - Grumpy White Bloke - to Michelle

She only finished fourth today. Fame is fleeting.

Also mentioned on the celebrity thread, but Red Cadeaux's reprieve was brief. I don't go much on horse racing at the best of times but this does seem very sad.

Royal Ascot starts in a few hours time. There are three Group Ones today. I'm particularly looking forward to the St James's Palace Stakes featuring the winners of the English, Irish & French 2000 Guineas.

Champion American mare Tepin is too good in the Group1 Queen Anne Stakes.

Profitable makes it three wins on the trot this season with victory in the Group1 King's Stand Stakes over 5 furlongs.

Galileo Gold wins the Group1 St James's Palace Stakes from The Gurkha & Awtaad. Ryan Moore, who rode the second placed horse proves once again that he is the most over-rated jockey in the world. Awful ride.

Just the one Group One today - The Prince Of Wales's Stakes. The odds on favourite is A Shin Hikari, a Japanese horse who looked outstanding when winning the Gp1 Prix d'Ispahan last month having previously won the Hong Kong Cup in December.

My Dream Boat wins the The Prince Of Wales's Stakes in a photo finish from Found. The favourite, A Shin Hikari was the first horse beaten after leading comfortably. It will be interesting to find out if there were any excuses. My Dream Boat finished 14 lengths behind A Shin Hikari at their previous start.

Earlier in the day we saw an amazing win by the US filly Lady Aurelia in the Gp2 Queen Mary Stakes for 2yo fillies. She led in the race & when asked to quicken she just exploded away from her rivals. Lady Aurelia has now been installed an even money favourite to win the Nunthorpe Stakes against the older sprinters at York in August.

Today's highlight is the Ascot Gold Cup over 20 furlongs. The favourite is Order Of St George who won the Gp1 Irish St Leger last year by 11 lengths. He won a Listed Race at his only appearance this season. Melbourne Cup runner-up Max Dynamite also contests the event. A number of these are unproven over the distance. It will be a tough run on the soft going.

As expected Order Of St George was far too good for the opposition in the Gp1 Ascot Gold Cup.

I just put a pineapple on it at 17s for the Melbourne Cup. Lloyd Williams will surely run it, no?

You would think that Lloyd would be keen to run him in the Cup. He looks an ideal type for the race. Stays all day but has the speed to potentially win a Group One over a mile and a half. It probably depends on how he is treated by the handicapper.

Williams & the Coolmore gang also have Bondi Beach who might be aimed for another crack at the Cup. He was still only a Northern Hemisphere 3yo when he competed in it last year.

There are two Group Ones today - the Commonwealth Cup for three year old sprinters over six furlongs & the Coronation Stakes for 3yo fillies over a mile.

The favourite, Quiet Reflection, wins the Commonwealth Cup. She is a very talented filly who has now won 6 races from 7 starts. It was the first Group One success for jockey Dougie Costello.

The second horse, Kachy, might have gone close to winning if he hadn't raced erratically.

Qemah wins the Gp1 Coronation Stakes, another success for Al Shaqab Racing. She had previously run third as favourite in the Gp1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (French 1000 Guineas).

It is the final day at Royal Ascot. Highlight is the Group One Diamond Jubilee Stakes over six furlongs. Australia has a representative in Holler who has won a few stakes races here including the Gp1 Canterbury Stakes at Randwick. However, I am not sure how he will handle the Ascot straight as he never raced on a straight before. There are some good sprinters in the race including last years winner Undrafted as well as Twilight Son, Magical Memory, Gold-Fun & The Tin Man.

The twelve furlong Gp2 Hardwicke Stakes should also be interesting as some of these will be heading toward the Gp1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes next month.

Twilight Son wins the Diamond Jubilee Stakes in a blanket finish. That is his second Group One having previously won the Sprint Cup at Haydock last year. His record now stands at 6 wins from 8 starts.

Earlier Dartmouth won the Hardwicke Stakes for the Queen. He has been in very good form this season winning all 3 starts & taking his overall record to 6 wins from 10 starts.

Not horse racing but the NSW Premier has today banned greyhound racing!

There will now literally be nothing to do in Dapto.

The figures quoted by Mike Baird are EXTREMELY inaccurate. Actually, they were extremely inaccurate 17 months ago & are even more inaccurate now as the industry has done a lot since then to address some of the problems they previously had. One would have to question Baird's motives in misleading the public. If the truth is allowed to come out, he might find that he has made a serious miscalculation.
