Put some of that famed German efficiency to work and get your website working! Almost without fail these days, the equine website is down on every race day, which is a bit like a polling station shutting its doors on election day, i.e. no earthly use.
EB, as he is known (or has he restyled himself “E” since his divorce from the daughter of one of Germany’s top stud farmers, Astrid Bregses? – yes, he really adopted his wife’s name when they got married), is a stickler for high standards with a reputedly short fuse, so heaven help those IT guys when der Boss finds out that one of the club’s major promotional tools – which also hosts his blog – has become something of a joke.
