28 Years Of Hurt Never Stopped Him Dreaming

This story cheered me up last night (and God knows we all need a bit of that right now).

An amateur jockey has finally won a race, after 28 years of trying – 28 years in fact, of never coming better than fifth.

I loved his interview on the radio last night, especially the bit when he said he was in the lead and nearly fell off waving to the crowd.

I’m glad he stayed on board. To have fallen off at that point would have demonstrated such incompetence he’d probably have been drafted into the Cabinet.
