A donkey is having a drink in a pub when he spots a horse at the bar so goes over for a chat. “What do you do for a living then?” asks the donkey. “I’m a racehorse” comes the reply. “Oh right,” says the donkey, “have you won any races then?”.
“Well”, says the horse, “I’ve won a Guineas & The Derby, and ran third in a Melbourne Cup.” The donkey is impressed and as they have a few more drinks, they eventually arrange to meet at the donkey’s house a week later for a meal.
Before they meet again, the donkey feels a little inferior, what with the horse being so successful & all, so thinks he’ll need to impress him when they meet up again. So after a brainwave, he goes out, buys a huge picture of a zebra & gives it pride of place in his home, hanging over the fireplace.
When the horse calls round to the donkeys house, he says, “It’s a very nice place you have here. Who’s the zebra in the picture?”
The donkey replies “That’s not a zebra mate. That’s me when I played for Juventus”.

BEST BETS – HORSE
The SA Carnival wraps up this week with the Goodwood Sprint the feature, and out of a handy group, our eyes have landed on No.1 Santa Ana Lane. Won this race in 2018 and has some cracking form on the East Coast during the Championships. 1200m is his pet distance, the ground will be firmer and he has been set for this day. Get on board at the real handy $7.00 getting thrown around.
Our value bet of the day is R6, No.14 Wings Of Pastrami. Had a solid run here 2 weeks ago and the prep overall has been promising. Given how the ground will end up Saturday, there is a lot to like at the $8.00 you can get at the moment.
