UnderCurrent was amused by some of the Gerry Harvey quotes carried on News Limited websites today. As Harvey prepares for Royal Descent's run in the Caulfield Cup tomorrow, he implored his fellow millionaires to join him in the sport of kings:

“It should be compulsory for every wealthy bloke – anyone who has $5 million – to spend 10 per cent of it owning racehorses, otherwise the money gets taken off you,” Harvey is quoted as saying.

“They get up in the morning with tickets on themselves, thinking how smart they are, but with horses they would get the shit kicked out of them every week and that would soon make them humble.

"It’s good for the character. They would be happier.”

UnderCurrent is quite the horseracing fan and would love nothing more than to see Royal Descent saluting tomorrow in the Cup.
