Tuesday Open Thread: Nobody Beats Jane Edition


Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Open Thread, where we share links that didn’t quite make the cut for a full blog post but we think will be of interest to our readers.

Alert Janeite Maria L. noticed an interesting item in the racing scores

Punters found the going as tough as the horses and jockeys at a blustery Fairyhouse yesterday as a series of surprise results culminated in a hard-fought success for Jane Austen in the Finale Stakes.

On just the third outing of her career, the daughter of Galileo responded to a particularly strong drive from Johnny Murtagh to foil the Harley family’s veteran Muskatsturm and Suailce in the Presidential colours.

Daughter of Galileo? Better than Godmother of Chick Lit, we suppose. So what’s new in your patch of Janeiteville? As always, feel free to pimp your projects/links in this open thread.
