Back in the old days when circuses were vastly different to what they are today, there were often acts where a man put his head inside the mouth of a lion.

Does anyone know if anyone ever died after undertaking such activity?

Yes unfortunately.
I believe a few died when the head put into their mouths was the head of an Eastern Suburbs supporter.

The topic of conversation at the dinner table last night was risky occupations.

I ventured "Horse Dentist" as I wouldn't fancy sticking metal objects into the mouth of a horse who is sore in that area.

Someone trumped that with "Circus Act - stick head in Lion's Mouth". I was just wondering if it is really that risky?

There is a web site that lists the 10 worst Circus Accidents but no report of a man having his head bitten off by a lion although a lion tamer was once mauled to death by 3 lions - crowd got their money's worth that night.

A mate of mine once after a bad week on the punt, applied for a job as a lion tamer . .

The circus-owner, stressing the courage required to do the job, called a female attendant who entered the cage, took off her shirt, and placed her left breast into the lion's mouth . .

"Would you be brave enough to do that?" he asked . .

"Too right," said the mate. "Just as soon as you get that bloody lion out!"

Looking through the field for the Roma Cup I notice that Fab's Cowboy has 40 wins to his credit.

Is there a more "winningest" horse going around?

Found one that is close but falls a little short of 40 wins

I can't get 'Racing & Sports' on my desktop . . HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden / The web server is configured not to list the contents of this directory

But I can get it on my laptop

Any ideas for a 'computer pygmy'?

One of life's great mysteries to me has always been "whatever happened to Green Moon"?
Handsome, courageous son of Montjeu just seem to disappear.
Originally sent back to Ireland as a Coolmore Hunt Stallion....or so we were told.....but never served there :what:
Yesterday I found this.
https://www.showmemelbourne.com.au/blog/the-champions-of-flemington-racecourse-part-8-this-decade
Still the question lingers.....Anybody know of any  registered progeny of the horse?

Firm track, staying son of Montjeu should really have been given an opportunity in this country IMO

Nick Williams is pretty active on Twitter, you could innocently ask him?

It was Nick Williams who did provide an update on Green Moon.  emthup

He does still exist although it's hard to work out what happened to him after he left Oz in 2013.
Sold to Luke Comer in 2016 and serves the owner's mares alongside Mourayan at one of Comer's Studs.
This was the only reference I could find for him.....he rates a mention here in an interview with the owner......not sure about the "Green Room" :what:name.

Just can't be siring winners!
Strange that we would export a dry tracker, Sadler's Wells breed.
