Sgt Reckless 5.15 Wednesday Cheltenham Festival

I’ve been struggling to get post out in recent weeks. Too much travelling. I’m back in the office today. More meetings! Back in London tomorrow. Meetings. I might get a chance to stick a word or two down.

In the meantime I’m in a meeting. However I have just taken time out to put a bet on a horse. Our CEO Tim owns a few gee gees and every now and again comes in very excitedly telling us we must put a bet on one particular horse or another.

The first time he did this we were quite a small business. His horse Racing Demon was running somewhere and the whole office bet on it – we brought in a TV especially to watch the race. I won a few hundred quid.

Since then he has given me a few tips and one way or another I’ve not been able to get a bet on. When that happens the horse has usually been just out of the money. Phew.

Today Tim came in to the meeting oozing excitement. He has a horse running. Sgt Reckless 5.15 Wednesday, Cheltenham. That’s it in the pic. No idea who the others are. Tim can probably tell us if he feels like leaving a comment.

I’ve opened an account with William Hill and made a bet. Won’t mention how much. I got 13/2. It was 15/2 when I started to look. Tim got in early and got 33s.

Not told Mrs Davies. She will find out soon enough when she looks at the bank balance.  All will be well, when it wins…

Watch the race and join in the fun:)

That’s all folks.

PS racing is like the stock market – horses can win and lose – I take no responsibility for your losses but am happy to be welcomed to the champagne party if it wins.

I also opened a Billy Hill account, to have a reckless flutter;….. without getting prior sign off from Management, and the bloody bank imediately phoned home to report the fact that a few hundred quid had just left the family debit card for an “out of character” transaction. Sometimes a bank can just be too helpful!.

The horse didn’t manage a place,and so I have double explaining to do now!.


What can I say? Thirteenth! I got home and Anne asked me what the chunk of money for WHO Internet was for. I told her it was an investment in a joint venture with Tim. Then I came clean. There are no secrets between us:)

All I can really add is that Tim needs to check the market value for horsemeat or turn it into a family pet. Also it is the last time I listen to a tip from Tim:)
