    Yes thats why its come to prominence again. But its not often you hear about it more recently. Going back years ago I bet a heck of a lot of them would have failed if tested. In fairness to him, by all accounts he has literally had a beer or two and failed as a fail for the BHA is about half that of the driving breathalyser test limit - pretty harsh - he is also apparently not a drinker at all, he rides out a shitload still, obviously at present alongside that he is taking as many rides as possible so he is pretty much working from the crack of dawn until the sun goes down.

    Its been in the news this week about the strict breathalyser tests that the jockeys have to undergo. I recall one of the first jockeys to fail one of these tests when they were introduced about 15 years ago. Not so long after that he retired at a very young age. I don't believe that he has yet to publicly tell this story although I do not believe it is a secret either so I will refrain from naming him directly as he is a friend. But prior to the breathalyser tests, for all of his career, he had drunk heavily most days. Like many jockeys certainly at that time and prior he didn't have dieticians and such to help him maintain a healthy diet while also maintaining the required weights. Thus he would binge eat and then make himself sick. He would then drink vodka or gin the rest of the day/night due to its low calories. The more he drank, the more tolerant he became to it, its effects were less apparent. It was a very frequent thing for him, almost daily. Why did he do it? The sadness of barely being able to eat, constantly being tired and lethargic, feeling ill because of the lack of sustenance, as a young man having a huge income but not many ways to enjoy it (not able to go out with friends all that often etc). Probably many other reasons on top. Nowadays I should imagine that they have easy access to dieticians and such. In days gone by, there are reasons why some of them were taking hard drugs and drinking themselves to death.

    Do casinos ever worry?

    The last time I played slots (I posted about it at the time on the todays selection thread) I think I deposited £500 onto Ladbrokes, played Fishing Frenzy Megaways at £10 a spin. Had 2 bonuses which paid something like 1x and 8x.... like whats the point? I have done virtual horses when I have felt like playing casino games since... (actually had something like £1600 off a Yankee, which is more than I have won on a slot in a long long long time). @Rocknrolla virtual racing stream please.

    I would question if it is an act of having "huge balls" or being a totally irresponsible degenerate, glorifying something incredibly detrimental and harmful. This is now touching on another, different topic, that being just how real is the casino play of affiliates when you take their source of income into consideration. Would he be doing the same thing gambling 10's of thousands on Reel King if he were still having to go work 40hrs a week for £20-200k a year? Probably not.

    If it were that much of a worry they would have just removed the gamble feature as it is from many places?

    The 200/1 horse ran a good race.

    Fair enough, well lets just replace the progressive jackpot comment and replace it with one of the megaways games hits the trillion to one chance and goes nuts.

    No idea to be honest, surely some of the liability must fall on the casino's?

    I do like the Farhh sired horses though, they are usually pretty consistent. 66/1+ ? Sure, why not...

    Pretty sure that would be a stewards inquiry and disqualification in America!

    Shite market at Nottingham. I think the favourite is easily opposable. Bells and Easterbys both look like decent enough horses. Would probably go for Easterbys.... if it weren't terrible value.

    Ran on pretty well at the end, but that Hannon horse won really nicely, the two with runs under their belt (ignoring the Ivory eeyore) both ran far better than anything else.
