Quick Note...

Well, what a day. The Grand National still captures the imagination of young and old alike. Well done to Donald  McCain Jnr and his team. Ballabriggs was a gallant winner.

I would like to thank Ian of Wayward Lad Blog for his superb post about this year's race. It has been a great success and hugely popular.

With only one two-year-old race, it was a quiet afternoon for HCE. There are no juvenile races tomorrow so I will focus on completing the Racing Ahead submission for May's issue. It is coming on well.

Another winner for Patient Speculation. Mark's blog is well worth a read and he has really made an impact since he started blogging only a short time ago. He is a great asset to our blogging community. I would like to say that our little blogging community has such a great spirit with people looking out for each other. That is such an important factor because it is sometimes so easy to lose site of the person behind the blog.

Also, it is great to see HCE's Tipping Competition 2011 hitting the heights today with Neil showing everyone how it is done tipping Joseph Henry to bag an 18/1 winner. I think we are going to struggle to catch him after that success - but we can certainly try. Well done, Neil. That was a superb win.

Thanks for supporting HCE. We have passed the 1000th post this week. Not bad for a little blog.
