My turn.

Shoot towards the bar…

.. was the big question asked back when we first looked this room, which they call the Media Puzzle Lounge.

Media Puzzle (May 7, 1997 – June 22, 2006), foaled in the United States was an Irish horse best known for his win in the 2002 Melbourne Cup.
Bred by Walter Haefner’s Moyglare Stud Farm and owned by Dr. M. W. Smurfit. He was sired by Theatrical, the 1987 U.S. Champion Male Turf Horse, and out of the mare Market Slide by Gulch, the 1988U.S. Champion Sprint Horse. Media Puzzle is the half-brother of Refuse to Bend, a four-time group 1 winning entire by Sadler’s Wells.

Anyway, bright and early the following morning – after having spent quite some time in this room the night before – the team made a start…

Seriously though, with Ivan’s help…

.. the two of them had all the lights up outside the 3 large windows…

.. in no time at all – so now it was starting to look pretty good…

Which also gave Claudio plenty of time to take lots of behind the scenes shots…

He’s very good at this – but by far the best shot he took was still to come – after the Denise and her husband, Ciarán, arrive…

Because as good as that was, it wasn’t until Claudio took this image of this absolutely amazing looking guy…

.. because yes, it was my turn to make an appearance in an image that had been well and truly amped smile

Which just leave me to thank everyone involved, including Denise & Ciarán here, who was about to appear in a few more images before the end of the day – but more on that to follow.

And so that’s the story behind this image that you can now see on their website…
