Oops – apology


It shows how careful you have to be on the internet. You never know who’s watching.

A few month’s ago, I wrote about Tarpins’ first start and included the comment, ‘our boy will be ridden by talented country hoop Daniel Moor’.

Daniel must have been doing a little self-googling, because he came across my site and left the comment, ‘Country jockey. Nice.’

Turns out Daniel is a talented jockey, full stop. So far this season he’s booted home 26 winners and 52 minor placings, and his rides have earned prizemoney in excess of $400,000.

To rub my nose in it, I saw Daniel ride the first metropolitan winner of the New Year at Flemington on Tuesday (Oval Affair), and then he saluted on Jenolan in the race before Tarpins at Seymour on Tuesday (photo above).

Sorry about that Daniel, I will be following your career with much interest in future.

    Do you reckon when ‘Country Hoop, Daniel Moor’ won at Flemington the other day and flipped the bird at the owner’s troph, he may have had one particlular owner in mind?

    I note Daniel had just finished his Christmas lunch when self-googling at 2.16 Christmas Day. Given I pigged out like a mad man, it made me wonder what those guys allow themselves to eat and drink over the festive season. I imagine it would be difficult.

    Scott, there was an interesting article on Michael Rodd yesterday in the Herald-Sun:


    The newspaper edition of the artcile included a sidebar which showed Michael’s diet:

    Breakfast = fruit
    Lunch = nothing
    Dinner = steamed vegetables
    Water intake = minimal

    Sounds great. That’s why I’m not a jockey. (That and the fact I’m 60kg too heavy).

    I see your mate Daniel has got a bit of time on his hands after a big suspension yesterday.

  5. Daniel says:

    Col Gray, when or where did i flip the bird???!

    And Bruce it was all in jest, well done with the recent efforts of Tarpins, who really seems to be improving each start!

    It’s all just fun on this site Daniel.

    Col Gray wouldn’t know one end of a horse from the other.

    It all stems back to when his grandfather lost the money he’d been saving for a house on a nag back in the 1920’s…

    Keep your eye out for Tarpins at the Tas Derby on 9 Feb.
