    That's rich coming ..if i wanted to do the typical stereotyping .. from a nation of ex-convicts.

    Perhaps the writer should have confined his comments to the culinary pages, but surely if he was dissing the Irish if knew anything about racing and commenting on the Melbourne cup
    he must or should have know that the most successful current International thoroughbred trainer is one Aiden O'Brien which just happens to include a victory in the Cox's Plate (one of Australia most prestigious races) run just two weeks ago.

    Added to which many of us race-fans believed the winner would have easily won the Melbourne Cup, the irony of horse's name, Adelaide is surely not missed by some.:)

    I suppose its no comfort to realize humans by their very nature are a xenophobic lot.:rolleyes:

    What about the drunkards though? Surely they have those too.
