FYI there is a horse running in the Kentucky Derby this year named Action This Day. Named after the "Hot Space" song?

'Action this day' is a common phrase which was used by Queen. I would get suspicous if other horses were called Under Pressure, Cool Cat, and Dancer

I can't say that I've ever heard the phrase 'Action This Day' used outside of the rancid excuse for a Queen song, so I wouldn't say it was a common phrase.

I am just computer illiterate enough to not know how to put the link in this message, but more info can be found at:

horseracing.about.com/library/bltc-actionthisday.htm

Hope it works. At any rate, I think if you go to ABOUT.COM and look up horse racing you should be able to find the info. If nothing else, do a GOOGLE search.

More like Roger was influenced by Churchill ...

Which is what Lester was trying to say I suppose ...


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!

Winston Churchill signed all of his letters to the people with whom he worked with "Action This Day" as a way to encourage decisiveness and leadership.


Oh wow... who would have guessed Winston Chruchill himeslf was a Queen fan o_0
Especially considering the group formed over five years after his death...

Bollocks.

Ok, I know nothing about anything, although the fact that Winston Churchill (famously?) used the expression 'Action this day' doesn't mean it's a common phrase, which I still maintain it isn't.

There's a beautiful beautiful picture of Action This Day in the New York Post. Simply beautiful. I stared at it for 5 minutes and I want him to win like right now.

"Update: so much for Action This Day..."

He came in 6th! And he had one of the worst odds haha... but the horse that I figured was going to win, Smarty Jones, won. Yay! I secretly wanted the horse that was blind in one eye to win. How sad! :-(
