Skiathos Horse race ...

What may be the last Skiathos Horse race took place this morning.

The Mayor announced at the race today, the road round the lake is to be tarmaced, and they are looking for another location. Lets hope the search does not take too long, after all the island is only 12km long, and there is a mountain in the middle, and if you are Mayor you should know where to look.

Likewise why waste money and tarmac a road next to no-one uses, when the road to Asselinos looks like the Americans have bombed it. Craters everywhere but no collateral damage unless you disappear down one of the pot holes in your hire car ...

Its a tradition here that there is a horse race round the lake, on St Georges day - Yorgos name day in Greece. Except when it falls at Pasca, in which case its the Monday after = Today ...

It also tradition here that Flogger wins and he did so again in style today






Like all racehorses they take some stopping, here are two on their way back from town ...
