Wow , it seems like only a few days ago I posted that envelope . I just looked up the latest feild for the Cup and they still have 50 horses listed ! Only about 25 will actually run . And one of the favourites a British horse has just been put down due to some accident in training . There is always something dramatic happening in the lead up to the race .
One of the most charming tradtions of the Cup is the day before when all the previous winners still in the country parade down the main street , even ones from 25 years ago are still around living in pampered retirement . Thousands of people turn out to cheer the old champions .
I'll have a better idea of the field after the weekend .
See ya , STEVE
