I have spent many years going to the Racetrack to see my favourite show. I never thought that I would live an experience like this morning. A gate without an audience, a paddock without atmosphere, without stakes and a recite of winning without the delivery of trophies, might have been the most striking images. The most emotional moment of the day has been the minute of silence between the fourth and fifth race, in remembrance to all the victims of the COVID-19 .
