Turf Deli Dud Of The Week
Embraceable You Hitch Hikes to Caulfield 28/09/02

An embarrassed and bedraggled Embraceable You turned up too late to race in the first at Caulfield on Dubai Race Day (22/09/02)

"The bloody float left without me" she explained. "I was waving and chasing after it, but the driver was rocking away to the latest Holly Valance song and I just could not get his attention. There I was left like a school kid whose mum had forgotten to pick her up after netball practice. I waited and waited, but they never came back - and then it started to rain and I just got soaked. I walked up to the train station, but I did not have the correct change for the ticket machine, so I ended up just hitch hiking along Flemington Road - fortunately I got a lift with a nice elderly couple who took pity on me."

Unfortunately, she arrived too late to take part in her event and had to go home disappointed for a nice warm shower and a cuppa tea and to forget about the horrible day she just had.

Stewards has since approved a gear change - large oversized Post It Note saying "Please take me to the races" to be added to the head gear.
