The Gold Cup Conclusion from the original blog with history
by meoldmate on 01 Mar at 21:34
THE GOLD CUP I have written a blog on the runners for this race with history to go with each runner as they appeared which many people have read and placed a mention at the bottom of the page. You can find this blog by typing http://www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=407857 As the link will not work. At least twenty five horses came to be mentioned for this Blue Ribbon race and now the numbers would have dwindled somewhat to possibly twelve or maybe more. I started out thinking SILVINIACO CONTI would be the key player to this race and at 8/1 in October looked to be the best way to play. He has strengthen up since last season, as his trainer Paul Nicholls has highlighted and has been finishing his races off, as he has shown when winning at Haydock and Kempton. The twice he..

WGC Cadillac Championship
by beepee1984 on 04 Mar at 05:38
The Course suited long-hitters and since making it bigger it will benefit the big hitters even more. Recent winners of the WGC Cadillac have shown form in several previous tournaments including the PGA Championship, Humana, Quicken National Links and Wyndham. Before the redesign of the course T Woods won here 7 times, the only tournaments that he has won more is the WTC Bridgestone and Arnold Palmer Invitation. The majority of winners have also already had a top 10 finish. My selection isn't bad of the tee only 14 yards of the Top Driver, has won at the PGA and WGC Bridgestone as well as coming a 2nd in last years Arnold Palmer Invitation. He finished 4th in his penultimate event as well as 2 3rd places earlier in the season in December. Keegan Bradley 50/1..

Cheltenham 2015 - A win and each way lucky 31 for 5 major races As I sit writing this, I excitedly tell myself "just 9 days to go now until it all starts again, brilliant, can't wait" - no I'm not talking about Christmas day, or my birthday, I'm talking about the start of the Cheltenham Festival and all of you reading this who are jump racing fans will share those thoughts, I just know you will. Now I've been a fan of horse racing as a whole sport since I was a kid, trips with my family to Doncaster for the St Leger aged 10, maybe slightly younger, so I've been a fan of horse racing for a very long time indeed, getting on for 30 years now. Flat turf racing was what I was brought upon, that's what my dad..

Old flames die hard: the Red Wings are enjoying their games against the Western Conference
by Epic on 01 Mar at 15:10
Before the start of last season we saw a realignment in the NHL, which, among other moves, saw the Detroit Red Wings moved from the Western Conference to the East. Judging by the fact that the Wings made it through to the playoffs as the last team in the East and with just a three point edge over the Washington Capitals, we can say the team had trouble adjusting with the change. It's often said the Western Conference teams play a much more physical style of hockey. To their credit, they did have a decent record against their new Conference foes going 26-18-10. The record against the West was 13-10-5. This season though, the Red Wings have proved that old flames die hard and they are enjoying matchups against the Western Conference. Yesterday the team finished off a road trip consisting..
