Cheltenham blues

One of the FIG world’s most extracurricularly active bankers was devastated last week when he found he was going to have to miss his annual trip to Cheltenham for the races because of work.

Some incredibly insensitive bank hired National Australia Bank for a roadshow last week, causing Nigel Owen to have to miss out on the equine festivities.  Blog knows nothing about horses, as evidenced by a series of ignorant and money losing bets placed on Friday. But we understand this Cheltenham thing is a big deal for enthusiasts.

Which is apparently why Owen was nearly in tears on Friday morning (not really). Owen, a regular source for Blog given his eclectic set of interests, including football refereeing and cricket club house managing, apparently has a horse of his own. We forgot to ask its name, but imagine it’s probably something like It’s All About Yield, or Relative Value Assessment.

Probably should have asked him for betting advice. There goes Monday’s lunch money.
