Two blogs in one day. I'm spoiling you. Amateur psychiatrists among you will spot my avoidance tactics. Two features still to write, foals to identify and burn onto a CD and packing to do and, guess what, I'm arseing around on the internet. Oh, and I also pulled Milly's mane ahead of her first run tomorrow. Let's hope she's as bossy with Aidan O'Brien's four runners as she was with me this morning. Little monkey.
Anyway, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I was inspired by something Dickie posted on John's blog. He mentioned the fabulous Sunline. So sorry never to have seen her in the flesh but a feature in her prime when I was still at Pacemaker was enough to secure her a special place in my heart. What a brilliant racemare she was, let's hope she turns out to be a great broodmare, too.
So I am, herewith (War 'n' Place will like that word), starting a list of mighty mares. For personal reasons Desiree (pictured) is at the top and I would have to include this year's Burghley winner Headley Britannia but as for the good racing girls, here goes:

Come on you bloggers and posters, let's have some more suggestions...
