MOST INTERESTING OPENING SENTENCE OF A HORSE-RACING STORY SO FAR THIS WEEK

The mystery of the missing testicle finally had a happy ending yesterday as the Tony Cruz-trained California Memory broke through to win his first race but sadly too late for his owner, Dr Thomas Liang Ting-sen, who passed away earlier this year.

I wouldn't run much either if I lost a testicle.

Was it a lopsided race? I suppose that condition would help a bit on the turns.

It's always in the last place you looked.

Now he has been able to show his ability

Is that what they call it in Hong Kong?

forming an opinion was great for that horse.. what was wrong with it being up out of sight? nothing.

people (dumb)

"It was a dark and stormy night..."
But at least I have two.

So the Happy Ending in this case was that the owner died before the race. Presumably in the saddle.

♬ "A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And no one can beat my horse, of course,
Unless, of course, the horse, of course,
has a famous missing egg!" ♬

hope it wasn't the vacuum...

Since he won, the jockey wasn't sacked.

girl horses would have liked to bat the eyes at that horse'

...when we did try to start him, twice he was scratched at the gates...
Apparently they were not scratching in the right place.

Apparently, Caster Semenya has the same problem. Fortunately, she has a different trainer.

I've been to the races on a horse with one ball,
It felt good to be back in the racing game.
At the races, you can remember your horse's name,
Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.

*This last refrain is the actual lyric from
A Horse With No Name, no doubt the lamest rhyme ever committed to paper.

Marc, it's a grammarian's nightmare, but I've always thought "oh, what a feeling, dancing on the ceiling" was more worser.

he has a Ferrari engine.
Something about the cost of the car being inversely proportional to the size of the package.

I haven't rode a horse, nor race it. But then I am interested to bet during horse racing event. I just hope someone can teach me ride it and will try to race it...:)

The Case of the Missing Testicle. A new Hardy Boys book?

Ball one, high and inside.

Suzy, that would have to be Hardy Boys Mystery Story No. 3, The Secret of the Old Mule

*snork*@ Steve - I made the same connection.

(And, um, I'm happy for you that the count is correct.)

I'd have given my right nut to watch that race.

When I saw the words "testicle" and "happy ending" I was expecting a different story.

I heard that California Memory now wants to compete in the LPGA.

I'm confused. What's the count now?

we have a numbnut

...... or two.

one's high & away

Don't get teste, Sandy.

♫ 'Sometimes you feel like a nut...'

And, they're off!

High and tight, it's a full count....

foul ball!

Loudmouth: "More worser"? I believe you mean
"morether worse". Any time I can help...

I think y'all have covered every possible nut joke. I can't think of anything except:
♫ Dashing through the snow
in a one nut horse open sleigh.♫
Yes, I know the rhythm is off but it's all I could think of.

Didn't Undescended Horse Testicle open for Justin Bieber?
