Rick Hore-Lacy breathes life into punters' post-mortem
Legendary appearance by Rick Hore-Lacy on TVN's Racing Review this morning after Toorak Toff's Group 1 win at Caulfield yesterday: admits to penury and debt, to "buying horses and never having enough money to pay for them", to "living on dreams" chasing big paydays with unlikely champions; phone rings on air, flicks it to voicemail then checks his messages(!), all while conducting the interview. "I once ran a successful business - boring as all hell!" Training, however, is "an exciting business, you never know when you're next good horse is coming from." To finish off "RHL" picked a fight with Richard Callendar before confiding he got "80s" about his 11-1 chance for the G1 Caulfield Guineas, Chase the Rainbow.
