Just wondering what the syndicate "makeup" is for this horse for Veitch to clear 60k, or does someone have to sit Tony down and explain things??.
The after race and presentation scenes were great and I can see a newbie to racing may have heard $600k to the winner of the million dollar dash and 10% in the same sentence and that is what he has worked on....or have I got this wrong or perhaps better to pose the question/s like this.
A) What is the winners purse for the KM?.
B)What is the share of A that goes to Jockey,Trainer,Syndicate Administration?.
C)How many shares were allotted on this filly & at what fee?
D)Answer to C) would have to be less than 10 for this $60k to be remotely possible?
E) Someone has put Tony crook on the figures?
I am not having a go at TA or Veitchy, just this Headline does not add up for me, and if I am correct and there has been a mistake, we do need new blood (as Veitchy says in last paragraph) but not at the risk of misleading them that the asphalt of Ellerslie is paved with gold.

Veitch bought into the horse last year.
In October, Veitch told horsebetting.com.au he didn't have a "clue" about how the horse racing industry prior to buying in.
"I think I'm symbolic of a new breed that are coming on board because it's something different, something new.
"I wanted some different stuff in life. I was getting bored with the work/life balance and so I decided to buy in.
"It's not about the money, it's just about having that fun knowing you have a stake in the run."
