  1. Quinella-Trifecta betting

    Quinella pools are commingled on Australian races and trifecta pools aren't. As simple as that.
  2. Trackside Radio

  3. pick6

    It's a bet that has had its time. Just there as a sucker bet these days. As long as suckers keep feeding it they might as well keep offering it.
  4. Cheltenham Festival

    The Timeform information on Betfair might help steer you in the right direction. You can check to make sure you are getting a fair price at the same time.

  6. Tab tricks.

    I accidentally submitted a three horse boxed trifecta once for a $100 unit when I meant to take a $10 unit. I phoned up and they changed it without any problems. It came in and paid around $60.
  7. Tab will pays

    You can get them from tab.com.au (awful site) if they aren't showing on NZ TAB. I looked some up the other day. Mark Claydon couldn't get them on the wireless last week. He said he rung the TAB Help Desk and was advised it was beyond their control as the problem was with Australia. I think blaming Australia is one of their common default responses.
  8. Nz tab

    I make that around $2655 per working day. When you take into account the progress that has been made in the three years he has been there, the way things have really turned around and how bright the future looks, it's quite clear that we are getting some really good value for money here.
  9. Nz tab

    Is that number what he actually gets or a guess? Can't be getting that much.
  10. What is Kylie Williams on....???!

    You couldn't do that down South. You would have so many sitting on the sidelines there wouldn't be hardly any left to do any riding.

  12. Caulfield Cup Comp test run for MC

    Oops sorry. Didn't read this first.
  13. Caulfield Cup Comp test run for MC

    I did. Will try and catch him again tomorrow night. Thanks for letting me know he is going to be on, Maybe they can keep everyone happy and put him on both nights every week. Best stuff on Trackside radio by many lengths.
  14. Caulfield Cup Comp test run for MC

    I disagree. I think Wednesday works well. If it was Thursday you wouldn't get much of a show, as he'd have to cross to the dogs and harness every few minutes. He does an excellent job. It would be good if the TAB could get the fixed odds up for some of the New Zealand weekend races by Wednesday evening so we can get an idea of what Ted's scratchings and Neil's selections are paying,. Then get rid of the Queensland harness. etc. and the show would be even better.
  15. Final Field and Futures bets

    12.11 Postponements The Board may allow a period of up to and including three days for a postponed Race to be conducted, before deeming the event to be abandoned. 12.12 Abandonments Final Field and Futures Fixed Odds Race Bets will be refunded in full if the Race in question is abandoned.
