Sometimes it’s because of a name, other times it’s the jockey on board but for a lot of fans, it’s because the runner is a grey horse. Racing fans absolutely love them. And while grey winners are few and far […]

How time flies. One minute we’re eagerly awaiting the entries for the Grand National 2022 and the next Cheltenham has been and gone and we’re at the second scratching stage.
