Interview with Ahmed and Justin Zayat, Owners of American Pharoah

American Pharoah has now beaten Golden Horn for the title of world’s best horse.

American Pharoah one is now the first horse in almost 40 years to win the US triple Crown and subsequently tack on the Breeders Cup Classic. With that, American Pharaoh has topped the Longines World’s Best Rachorse rankings, sitting now at 134, beating Golden Horn by 4 lbs.

American Pharoah’s history is certainly impressive. There was only one defeat for the successful horse, last year at the Travers Stakes at Saratoga.

The new award for American Pharoah comes just three days after he got all the required votes to win the US Horse of the Year award.

His trainer, Bob Baffert said “I’ve had a lot of talented horses but he just kept bringing it. He was that type of horse.”

Now, American Pharoah is retired at Ashford Stud in Kentucky with his fee set at US$200,000

If one thing is for sure, “American Pharoah is a horse of a lifetime” as  Ahmed Zayat stated. This is probably the most fitting description for one of the most successful racehorses in recent history.

The Totally Thames Art Festival in London

thames-underwater sculptures

London’s river Thames will come to life at this year’s Totally Thames festival!

The art festival in the city will go on all throughout the month of September.

One of the festival highlights this year is the The Rising Tide underwater art exhibition by world renowned sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor.

What makes this exhibition stand out is that the sculptures are concealed and revealed by the daily ebb and flow of the tide. At low waters, the river is revealing four horses and riders.

The sculptures intend to highlight the role of the Thames as the lifeblood of the British capital.

Along with many art exhibitions and galleries, The Totally Thames Festival also features music, boat rides and plenty of opportunities to sample great food and drink along the river.

Great Musical Entertainment with the Singing Waiters

If you haven’t heard of The Singing Waiters yet, I think it’s time you should!

Maybe you know that surprise entertainers, such as singers and dancers that disguise themselves as waiters or performances such as flash mobs are currently very popular in the UK, especially in the bigger cities including London.

singing waitersI had the fortune to see the singing waiters a couple of times now and I can definitely see why they are so popular.

What impressed me most about the singing waiters was that they can do excellent performances with all sorts of musical styles.

There was one wedding reception which was very “fancy”, where the singing waiters made an excellent addition to the entire event. The other reception I attended was a lot more casual, this is where the singing waiters really got the crowd going.

Both times the guys appeared out of nowhere about late afternoon right after toasts. And of course, every time the singing waiters started with their performance, all the guests were entirely floored and had been cheering and clapping. And would you believe it or not, at both wedding receptions the singing waiters got standing ovations and it seemed to me as that the guests really didn’t want them to leave at the end :)

If you ask me, I know from experience that some folks spend a lot of money on their weddings and wedding receptions. And if you’re already worrying about so many things to make your wedding reception perfect you should definitely not ignore the musical entertainment. Don’t just book some average guys for your wedding reception.

You should Hire Singing Waiters – it will be more than worth it because they will turn your reception into an unforgettable event for everyone, take my word for this!
