    I tend to agree with your comments regarding far reaching tentacles and they aren't the only ones. The sad part is that the people at the coal face of this industry don't appear to have any tentacles at all and i refer to trainers and jockey. I write this from my recovery bed under the influence of tramadol and other assorted drugs ,so i might be wrong. Now back to watching replay o fCoro st.
  2. Melbourne Cup thoughts

    Haven't given it much thought but i will be a contrarian and pick U S Army Ranger to win followed by Marmelo and Rekindling. Gallante and Bondi Beach to have a race for last. Now off for what has been described as minor surgery,however whenever a man in a mask with a scalpel in his hand comes near me i reckon it becomes major. Adios for a while.

    Jacinda already backing away from her hard line on foreign buyers. In fact Robertson and Parker are said to be looking at ways of blocking foreign ownership. After 9 years on the back benches this should already have been known. Poor effort.

    Hard to believe that those 2 dairies by Fraser both do enough trade to survive.

    I recall ex jock Fred Blackburn operating a dairy near me.Always met with a smile and a story,now you are met with the smell of food and a non speaker of English as a first language. As years have gone buy a lot of people got out of dairies and immigrants have taken over. I bet they didn't think that they would become targets of low life scumbags. Something should be done and quickly.

    They may just turn out alright but to be fair they have been in power for about 24hrs so i would say they are having bob each way. Based on rhetoric they should do well however the proof will be in the pudding.

    Never been an owner,trainer or breeder,just carried a bucket and spade.No longer bet,don't have trackside and haven't been on a raceourse for many many years,but heres my opinion why trainers don't speak out. A majority of trainers in our main training centres depend on Race clubs for stables and land so obviously getting offside with these guys with a contary opinion could be disastorous. A lot of trainers rely on the support of horses from big studs and big owners for for a living. Now if breeders,owners,trainers and studs aren't all on the same page it's a big ask for a trainer to come out with a differing opinion. Could be wrong and don't mind being ridiculed.Being married with children teaches you that.

    Just read an article written by Stephen Franks that implies that Chinese investors must be treated in the same manner as Australian investors. If thats correct then troubled times may lay ahead. Article was written in 2013 and was based on what the Labour was saying then and what the FTA signed by Goff said.

    Obviously i am not well educated so if possible could you put that into words that a 2nd year fifth former can digest easily.Thank you.

    I am pretty sure that you are correct . I think it was put in by the Clarke Govt. Don't mind being corrected if i am wrong.
