Ran 56.3 on a dead track and demolished what I thought was a handy sprinter in Azzaland  :/

I remember the incident Leo, just thought it was Black Pill, and the one after it was Blue Pill .... most probably I am incorrect and it is the other way around ;)

edit: you certainly are correct, Black Pill was the slow one

Gee you are getting old Leo.  Time marches on and I forgot you were getting on in years.

Seriously do you have much trouble with all those injuries that you had, such as arthritis and the like?

Not according to Baldwin a few days ago.....

Quote
Trainer Barry Baldwin is praying forecast rain won't eventuate ahead of Burdekin Blue's test to confirm a Melbourne trip at Eagle Farm.

"He's won in the wet but he's half the horse when he's not on top of the ground," Baldwin said.

Blue pill won 8 from 11 and was by blazing saddles, in his last 2 starts he beat Juggler by 1.5 out of barrier 18 at 8/1 and the (Chief )Chief de Beers by 2.8.
It was jan 1999.
time will tell how good Burdekin Blues  is.
Comparing horses is a load of crock. imo

Snapped his leg on the crossing after the post at the Gold Coast after winning the race, the Gold Market was it  ?  :tears:

We had a nice mare also by Blazing Saddles called Lady Blaze at the time, and I backed Blue Pill every start he had just because of his breeding, was a real tragedy for connections and the racing public  :(
