The last two weeks of December were very quiet for me, as I was able to ‘finish with Christmas celebrations’ by about December 17th. I was then able to catch up with the latest news about Czech racing, and to spend Christmas day translating some items that I thought you might want to click on to.

The 2018 Velka Pardubicka was run on a remarkably sunny, pleasantly warm mid-October afternoon. The bright weather had brought out the largest crowd, by some margin, that I have seen at Pardubice racecourse over a period of 25 years. The course had been affected by a long, very hot and very dry summer, but it had been watered quite extensively.
