Steve Theodore is making every post a winner with his galloper Don't Get Excited. Steve has had the horse for just three starts and they've all been Sandown wins. This horse is owned by a great group of owners that live in Swan Hill and they when they travel down they don't celebrate the wins with cups of tea and lamingtons. After his last win his jockey Glen Boss declared that he thought the horse was stakes class. Let's hope he's right. I think we can all agree that Don't Get Excited is a poorly named horse.

Everybody at kniGGhts likes to call our client Brad Norman Witt "Naughty Brad". We partially do it just to stir him but we also do it because..... well..... he's got a cheeky naughty streak. It's never anything serious but a quiet beer with Brad is more than likely to end up as more than one beer. Every time he rings the office the girls always giggle at the stories he tells with his self efacing humour. Don't let his gregarious nature fool you though – Brad can train like crazy. He had a double the other day at Narrandera with Pointing Gold and Flaming Aces both returning to scale as chicken dinners.

Normally when Chris Calthorpe tells you a horse is flying you tend to pay little attention. Not because Chris is a bad judge but because normally it means the horse is literally flying. In addition to training horses Chris flies horses around Australia with his business Air Horse Transport. So when he told us his horse Businessman was flying nobody at kniGGhts paid it enough attention. After it got the chocolates at Geelong and paid $26 we were all seriously regretting not asking the question – Flying in a plane or flying on the track?

If it’s all the same with you we will get excited. Steve Theodore has had an incredible July with his horse Don’t Get Excited making it his sixth July win when it took out the 1000m Sportingbet handicap on July 24th at Sandown. With a week left in July you’d be brave to bet against him adding to his tally of July wins.

Don’t Get Excited won the first race of the day and when I left the track at Race 7 Steve was still at the bar telling his winning owners that they “must” take a share in a new yearling he has that he thinks will be better than the horse they already have. As Steve loves to say – get around him.


Neil Walsh has trained a staggering 9 winners and 17 placed horses from his last 50 runners. He is currently in the middle of a hot streak that is showing no signs of abating.

The highlight of Neil’s streak was when stable favourite Zuma Roc was able to win at Flemington on a Saturday. It was Neil’s first Flemington winner and a massive thrill for him. The win was made all the more special by the fact that Zuma is owned by some of Neil’s most loyal clients.

The day after Neil won with Zuma Roc he had to travel to Casterton with another galloper. He was a fraction late arriving on course. Neil blamed his navigator. There are suspicions Neil nodded off in the front passenger seat on the way to the races leaving his navigator without a second opinion on the best way to get there. Hero to zero in 18 hours.
