He&#39;s married, right. Well, that&#39;s okay. I&#39;m not bothered. It&#39;s completely normal. I&#39;m very, very, very happy for the guy.

As Sting would say "I&#39;m so happy, I could cry"

A couple of years ago I read an article from a magazine in Kentucky that was about the sheikhs interest in racing. The article was quite good giving a few personal insights into the brothers. Nothing about the boys, though. I will try to locate it-it was titled something like &#39;Sport of Sheikhs&#39;. It essentially reinforced what I already felt-that they have no interest in US racing outside of the TC-which is quite a pity.

Nope, she isn&#39;t. Her fullname is Sheikha Mooza bint Mohammed bin Butti Al Hamed. Here&#39;s the link.

"Laughing through my tears"

........

I&#39;m never going to get that song out of my head.

And Hamed isn&#39;t a royal name, I don&#39;t think. And she&#39;s a &#39;sheikha&#39;&#33;?&#33;?&#33; Where is Layla?

Now I&#39;m really laughing. Where is Layla ha? As if I am the in-house expert....lol.

Well, I have heard of the name Al-Hamed. There are a few Sheikhs with that name.... wait....I&#39;ll just check.....

Sheikh Mohammed bin Butti al Hamed (Sheikha Mozah&#39;s daddy), Abu Dhabi Ruler&#39;s Representative in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Municipality and Town Planning Department.

Then there&#39;s Sheikh Ahmed bin Hamed (but this could be Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed&#39;s son), President&#39;s Personal Advisor.

Some of the Sheikh titles are not necessarily of the ruling families. There a few families in Dubai (and for the life of me I cannot remember any of them right now) who are Sheikhs (because they represent their tribes) and not necessarily Princes as such. Maybe this is one of them... Another thing: the King of Saudi Arabia can bestow the title of Sheikh on whoever they choose. Something along the same lines as Queen Elizabeth and Sirs/Knights etc. One such person is the Lebanese prime minister, Rafiq Hariri. He was "knighted" as a Sheikh by the Saudi King.

I think the Dubaian non-Maktoum sheikh is a Bin-Bah (?.... not sure of the name). Everytime he gets called anywhere, even when in the presence of the ruling sheikhs, he gets called as Sheikh so-and-so Bin Bah. He was also a Saudi knighted Sheikh. I have heard that this ticks SM off.

Coca cola probably knows better. Can you please shed some light on the Al-Hamed deal? My assumptions are done based on analysis & logic.

Everything ticks off SM....

My favorite is the monthly meetings with Baba Zayed, Shk Khalifa and SM. I&#39;ve never seen grown men give each other dirtier looks. And the whole while Baba Zayed is looking pleased as punch.

Bin Bah-never heard of the name. But the Hamed name is well known.

Oh man, what&#39;s wrong with Sheikh Zayed? Aren&#39;t 14 wives enough for him? And what about Mo? "It does not matter what your title is, it&#39;s about what you do. One should not look at titles, but rather at achievements."..... "Rank is unimportant." Oh, yeah&#33;

Are you talking about the majlis, Silver Charm? How often do they have them? Can anyone attend it (them), can I? And where can I catch a glimpse of those Sheikhas? Anyone? Do they have teaparties like the Saudi Princesses? Do you think they&#39;d let me in?

hey guys
the al hameds are distantly related from the al nayhans and are from the tribe of bani yas like baba zayed. Moza papa is basically the ruler of al ain, even though al ain isnt an emirate i suppose it needs some royalty to be there&#33;&#33;&#33; I heard he is supposed to be a good guy&#33;

Okay, it&#39;s Shk Hamdan bin Rashid (the old guy-not hottie). A couple of years ago Dettori was having a good run of bad luck. Everytime he saddled a horse in a race it seemed to run straight up the butt of the horse in front of it. I was starting to question Dettori&#39;s abilities as a rider. And as I&#39;m sure you are aware no one really asked me my opinion. Well, anyways, I was flipping through the local newspaper in Dubai and Shk Hamdan was attending some dhow race. He was blabbing on and on about football and dhow racing and then a journalist asked him about Dettori and Godolphin&#39;s campaign for the summer. I don&#39;t remember the exact quote but it was something to the effect &#39;I&#39;m glad he&#39;s not riding for me&#39;.

This just adds to my already over inflated view of Shk Hamdan as a racehorse owner. A jockey can&#39;t win a race a horse can&#39;t run but a jockey can easily lose a race a horse can run.

Dettori is Godolphin&#39;s retained rider he is having a big weekend right now. Keep an eye on racingpost.co.uk for the latest.

the Mak brothers lost today at epsom. have yet to see the photos of the race or brothers. keiran fallon won the race by 7 lengths. k. fallon IMO is one of the best riders on the circuit today. he&#39;s brillant. i wish for everything the Mak brothers would dump frankie and give fallon whatever he wants-he&#39;s absolutely worth it.

oh...royalty....yeah....will get to discussing that soon.

No worries. I know it is not Hamdan da hottie (or amongst the hotties) I&#39;m sure that Mo must have noticed there was no fire in that guy. How come he let him ride his favorite horse then? I remember I saw one such event. In one of the photos Dettori was kissing Mo; Sheikh Hamdan was not looking that way. I can&#39;t find that picture right now. Well, here it is. You&#39;ve probably seen it before.

Kinda cute

One helluva happy family

Why does the sun not shine at night?
Why does the rain not fall in the desert?
Why does Shk Hazza not respond to my email?

Our job on this earth is not to ask why but accept the way it is.

I have absolutely no friggin&#39; clue what is going on with the Shk Mo/Dettori love fest. Those two guys would name their kids after each other if their wives would allow it. I don&#39;t understand why such a powerful stable would sink so much into a guy who is good but not great.

The whole concept just gives me a headache.
