Pick of Geegeez 2021

The Pick of the Posts 2021

It's the end of another year: 2021 wasn't quite as tumultuous as 2020, but it was nearly! As we close out the year with further uncertainty hanging in the air, thank the deities for that supreme inconsequence, horse racing.

Here at geegeez.co.uk we continue to support our industry-leading data service, Geegeez Gold, with thought-provoking editorial from a very talented group of writers, all of whom are racing fans. Because the next few days are bereft of a race or six to bet on, I've reprised the pick of the posts from these twelve months for your edification.

This seems a great opportunity to thank those who have contributed in 2021: Chris Worrall, Sam Darby, Nige Dove, Dave Mosley, Andrey Yatsyk, Dave Renham, Tony Stafford, Andy Newton, and Jon Shenton. I'm personally hugely grateful and not a little bit proud of what we've continued to achieve this year, punching above our weight against some very large media players.

Anyway, back to the good stuff, and I hope you'll find plenty of interest in the below!

Finally, here's wishing you and all those you care about a happy, and healthy, Christmas and New Year.

    Hi Matt,
    Many thanks for yet another year of great service and a Merry Christmas to you and Chris and the entire Geegeez team!
    Just a wee poser for you – I fully understand why there is no racing in the UK on Christmas Day (although they do race now on Good Friday which surprises me) but why on earth is there no racing on the 23rd and 24th December? Most other countries continue as normal on these days and I for one being organised early for Christmas, would love to be watching a bit of racing today!
    I can’t find any mention of the subject online, do you know if it is something historic or otherwise?

      Hi Jethro

      Thanks for the seasonal greetings – much appreciated!

      Re no racing in the days before Christmas, I guess everyone needs a rest sometimes..!! Personally I quite like it because it doesn’t sometimes feel like we’re “always on”, and a little escape time – even 72 hours or so – is very welcome.

      Back with a bang on Boxing/St Stephen’s Day: TEN meetings.

    Thanks a lot Matt and yes there is certainly no shortage of racing on Boxing Day, although I would much rather they spread it out from a personal perspective! All the best to you and yours…
