Social Discourse: Monday 20th May

The late spring has been spoiling racing fans and, with group racing on four consecutive days, flat aficionados really got their fill as we head to a summer of blockbuster racing. For the jumps boys and girls, there was arguably the biggest shock of the year so far – and it came off the track […]

Social Discourse: 13th May 2019

We are into the thick of the flat season now, and that means taking some international trips for what is a big recap edition of Social Discourse. There's plenty to look forward to this week, but in case you were gripped by the weekend's football - and let's be honest, there's no shame in that […]

Social Discourse: 7th May 2019

It was a week with just about everything that racing can give, writes William Kedjanyi. But there's really just one place to start for this Special Edition of Social Discourse. To the land of the Free and The Home of The Brave, because where else would we go?   Maximum Disqualification It all looked so […]

So here we go again, as the dust settles on the 2018/19 UK jump season, writes William Kedjanyi.

Social Discourse: Monday 1st April 2019

Welcome to April and the first Social Discourse of the Spring and, consequently, the flat turf season. I'm William Kedjanyi, and here is my perspective of the past week (and the coming days) through the eye of the tweet machine... First things first: today is the first day of the reduced FOBT Maximum Stake, which […]

Social Discourse, 25th March 2019

Another week, another SD to keep you in the loop on all things racing via the occasionally wonderful medium of tweetie, writes William Kedjanyi. We kick off with a familiar gripe related to race clashes... Do The Splits Oh, what a glorious Sunday to be an Irish racing fan. The flat was back at Naas […]
