    There was a race to be in a certain place wan time....

    There was a race to be in a certain place wan time and it was to be a great wan. There was wan man and he was a great rider. Thomas Broaders was his name. and he had won hundreds of races. It was to be a point to point race that is the race would go through the fields in a circle a distance of about three miles.
    The night before the race Thomas Broaders did the course. This isn't allowed at all of course for then the horse would have an idea of the journey, and the rider himself would know all the dangerous places.

Thomas swore that he didn't do it at all and wanted to know what they were saying at all.
