After I was made redundant from The City in 1993 with a half decent pay off I persuaded my wife that it was the racecourse, rather than the dealing room, for me and amazingly she agreed with the caveat that I ''got my arse back up in The City as soon as I had done my money.'' Fortunately it lasted a good while, and I ended up making a few quid and a bit of a name for myself for the next 17 years, during which I wrote various columns for RFO, The Sun and The Daily Record.
