Hero of the day

Sam Waley-Cohen had an absolute triumph on Saturday when he rode Long Run to victory in the King George VI at Kempton, beating the favourite Kauto Star. Sam's father Robert owns the horse and it's the first time for 28 years that the race has been won by an amateur jockey. Sam's day job is dentistry.

One should never give up trying! I don't think he should give up his day job though!
