Bet You Think This Post Is About You

I love the names of racehorses.
Retired Sun editors must be able to have a better off than maybe retirement by making up names for racehorses.

My favourite at the moment is Mister Pointment.
I don’t know if the gee gee is any good but I always have a giggle when I see his name in the paper.

And it was this fascination with racehorses’ names that caused me to come to the conclusion that Carly Simon really did leave a big clue to Who was so vain that they probably thought that song was about them.

In today’s papers it has been revealed that Carly whispers the name David, backwards, about two and a half minutes into the song.

But trust me, that is either an additional clue or a red herring, the answer was there all the time.

All you have to do is find out who had a horse called Naturally back in the late sixties…

I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse Naturally won

  1. I’ll save Naturally for another day. When I was in Mark Kilner’s syndicate we had a horse called Al Reet.

    This wasa fine for syndicate members as we were mostly from Lanacashire and Yorkshire but a lot of people in racing though she was owned by Arabs.

  2. Ah David Geffen eh? I’d heard that rumoured before. But what was Carly, then a nubile young thing with beestung lips in the style if Billie Piper doing grizzling about a gay record producer when at the time she could have had anybody? Me for example.
