A RUNNING joke among my sons is I just sit behind a computer and type “Blah, blah horse, blah, blah horse…” it’s that simple!
The little turds think it’s quite hilarious.
Given the results of this season’s Victorian country cups it is beginning to feel like the brats have a point…with a slight difference.
Instead of ‘horse’ it’s Emma Stewart.
Stewart has dominated the provincial features in recent months, including two Cups in the past 24 hours.
Stewart’s recent raids on the rich circuit have netted wins in the Maryborough, Yarra Valley, Geelong and Cranbourne Cups.
In the latter Group Two Stewart’s runners were the first five across the line.
Stewart’s haul also includes the trifecta in the Geelong Cup and placings in the Stawell and Bendigo Cups.
Last night Stewart added the Shepparton Gold Cup to her ever-growing tally thanks to the Kate Gath-driven Phoenix Prince.
Earlier today Stewart’s silverware collection expanded after Hurricane Harley captured the Hamilton Cup.
With Kima Frenning holding the reins, Hurricane Harley outstayed his rivals to account for Duke Of Wellington and Idealsomemagic in 1:53 over 1660 metres.
“That was a terrific run and will top him off for the main races ahead,” Stewart said. “He will go in the Four-Year-Old Bonanza in Melton in a fortnight before he heads up to Sydney for the Chariots of Fire.
“Ideally he could gain automatic entry to the Chariots of Fire if the wins the Bonanza otherwise we will take him up for the lead-up races.”
