    The Argentina v Holland match was a fantastic game of football.
    A veritable chess match, with loads of tension. Two defenses that played for the most part impeccably. It's not always about the...

    RIP Lammtarra

    Tends to get forgotten about, but he was a very brilliant horse. Only ran 4 times in his career, winning a Listed race as a 2yo, then won 3 races as a 3yo in 1995.... But those where the three...

    Why do we have to have a Triple Crown winner?
    There's plenty of great races all year long to watch if you are into racing. I'm thinking most of these people aren't really into racing.

    Verrazano just turned in a solid performance to finish 2nd to Toronado (stable mate of Olympic Glory) in the Queen Anne Stakes G1, the race that kicks off the Royal Ascot meeting.
