|The Paddy Premium|
Well, what a week so far, the power of sport to transcend life has never been as apparent as it has been this summer and sitting here on Thursday afternoon I feel mildly shattered. It started on Tuesday at Perth where after yet another monsoon racing went ahead in extremely wet conditions; The Paddy Premium having his swansong at his local track, just denied by the narrowest of margins in a driving finish by Silver Steel ridden by, guess who, Lucy, bitter sweet doesn't begin to describe the mixture of emotions! And half an hour later Lucy struck again on Spirit of a Nation to record her first double at her local track.
