after an apparent attack by a fox, a street cat named bob was found injured and curled up in the hallway outside of a support housing flat in tottenham were james bowen, a recovering heroin addict and homeless busker, was staying. james took the cat in, got him to the rspca, and nursed him back to health using what little drug money he had for antibiotics.
but in the process, bob helped to nurse james back to health as well, giving him a reason to get up in the morning and get clean. since his recovery, bob has refused to leave james side, following him everywhere for the last six years.
thanks to a literary agent who passed him on the streets, james has since written an international bestselling book about his hardships and friendship with bob. “we’re two injured souls looking for someone we can trust,” james says. done in collaboration with the writer garry jenkins from an islington café, the book also attempts to dispel some of the social stigma that goes with homelessness.

Twice Over and Tom Queally.
Never underestimate the reigning King of California!!
Game On Dude, the first horse to three-peat in the G1 Santa Anita Handicap, in the fastest running ever at 1:58.17 - faster even than greats like Spectacular Bid, Affirmed, Seabiscuit, or John Henry. (Spectacular Bid still holds the Track Record at Santa Anita for 1 1/4 miles, but earned it in the Strub Stakes)
A very happy birthday to one of my favorites, John Henry. You are missed dearly, big boy.
Favorite Horses: Gio Ponti
The three-time Eclipse Champion Turf Male was an extremely special racehorse. He ran 5 years, contended 3 different races on 2 different surfaces over 4 years and didn’t embarrass himself on either of his 2 trips to Dubai. His 10 graded stakes wins (7 G1) helped earn him over $6 million and in 29 starts he finished on the board 23 times.
On top of the eye-popping numbers, Gio Ponti was an incredibly classy runner. Watching him in the paddock, he was a total professional with a very graceful, gentlemanly air. Though he didn’t win any of his 4 Breeders’ Cup starts - he became the first horse in history to finish second in the G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic and G1 Breeders’ Cup Mile, and Iit took the likes of Zenyatta and Goldikova to keep him from those winners circles.
