Turf Deli Dud Of The Week
Hire 10/01/01

Definitely not talking through the hip pocket with this one, as can safely say we have never backed Hire, and seriously doubt we ever will.

A horse that was spruiked and deemed a super star by the babbling media that never really delivered. With the impressive statistics of 14 runs for 5 wins, but an even more impressive 5 times beaten favourite and never starting longer than 4-1 at the jump, meaning Hire fans were living off slim pickings indeed. Hereby dubbed the Anna Kournikova of the race track - touted as potentially the best miler in the land, talked about everywhere- but definitely deserves the title 'Best Miler in the Land (Never to have run a place over 1600M)' (just like Anna has the title of 'Tennis Superstar, who has never won a major title')
