Must Follow On Twitter – @thethoroughbred

June 3, 2011

Well, I did say I would write it yesterday, but I’m sorry, I got lazy!

So instead, I’ll write it today.

To be honest, the original inspiration for this segment was a single tweet from Danny Power from The Thoroughbred. Discussing Americain’s likely return bid for the Melbourne Cup yesterday, he produced one snippet of information that I haven’t heard anywhere else – yet to me, it is a bigger story than the fact he’s returning (part owner Gerry Ryan confirmed that he would return in February).

Danny tweeted yesterday that Americain is likely to have his final Melbourne Cup lead up in the Cox Plate rather than the Caulfield Cup. Considering the horse will have two 3000m runs at Deauville in France before he comes to Australia, that is incredibly ambitious. However, it adds some intrigue to the race, which is a fantastic thing.

Danny has also produced some of the most fantastic previews for big races I have seen – and I have gained access to his knowledge and thoughts through Twitter. Just check out his preview of the Queensland Oaks – it puts every other one (including mine which will be out later today) to shame.

Taking that all into account, I think it would only be right if I made Danny my first person you must follow on Twitter.

To follow Danny, go to his Twitter profile:
