I bought a racehorse

Friday nights, end of the working week and enjoying a well earned Savvy B with our friends and owners of the pub, the Brougham Arms Hotel in Bendigo. The Broughie is very popular and well renowned for their good food, wine and hospitality.

So here we were talking about anything and everything when one of the guys started to tell us that they had bought shares in a racehorse.

‘Oooh that sounds rather exciting’ I could hear myself say! Did I say that out loud?

‘Are you interested in buying a horse’?  My husband Stephen looked at me rather quizzically!

‘Yes I am interested’, I could hear myself say! I did say that out loud.


A couple of weeks later I received a text message from my friend Pat to say that a beautiful little 1 year old filly was for sale and that a few girls were keen on forming a syndicate to purchase her and was I still interested.

Yes ‘I bought a racehorse’.

She is gorgeous, feisty, bit ‘up herself’ and she needs a name.  Her bloodline is Haradasun (father) and Moondance (mother). We were thinking (hoping) that she’s like a smaller version of Black Caviar, so Stephen said, why not call her Ebony Roe…

I like Harada Rose (after Fighting Harada the Japanese Boxer who fought Lionel Rose), however it was taken. Maybe Harada Belle?  Have you ever named a racehorse? A child? Any ideas?

Yes I bought a racehorse!
