    Got the bully from Capalaba last Sunday a dog called Barbaresco was a past the post cert, first starter from Box 7 with the fav yeah what drawn 1 .... now If I know this how many others ? Before the race Barb was $2.80 with yeah what at $2, commentary team was saying solid late money for the third fav and calling yeah what a ‘good thing’ with the draw..... not a mention of the 7 and I knew of one punter at least ,with four figure bets ? As it turned out the Fav in one didn’t want to be there and ended up on the other side outside the speedy winner Barbaresco .....are these people ‘working ‘ for the betting institutions,? Talk about being lead up the garden path Watch this pooch, been running time .
  6. This week is a recap of the 2007 King's Bishop Stakes (G1) at Saratoga won by Hard Spun. Written by Jeff Scott, the recap ran in the Sept. 1, 2007 magazine under the headline "The Right Spin." View the full article
  7. From memory the total nom fees for a runner in the Melbourne Cup is round about $50k per horse (that starts). God knows how they, or any racing club including the met can justify the costs for nom fees. What's the idea behind nom fees anyway? Is it to try and limit or restrict the total number of horses being nominated for a race, and or is it to cover (and then some) costs associated with the admin? We all know it's an unjustified rip off but just posing the question as to how and why they exist.

    I’m loyal to the bitter end so it’s theNZ TAB for me.
  9. “She is hands down the best 3yo filly in Australia”. She’s never raced as a 3yo so how can you make that statement??? She hasn’t won a G1 as a 2yo either - or have I missed something? Poor Gerry. Spends a fortune on racehorses and now you put the moz on a promising, yet to have her first as a 3yo filly! Will be interesting to see how she measures up.

    Of course but what's wrong with buying information?

    Doesn't that just give them a line on your horse or dog? Nothing comes for free.

    Morning training , then lunch then bookies , pub , or racing . Few nights a week at dogs betting and boozing . Loads of free time and places for those guys to burn through the wage packets in London. Claudio Pizarro more recent Chelsea player owns a fair few racehorses in South America .For reasons that defy logic he went into one with that total complete fxxxwit Joey Barton .
  13. Just think it's wrong. I do know people who have had horses in some of these races. As someone else stated on here they had a horse in the dominion and they would have been better off starting in a supporting race. What's you connection stables. Committee member perhaps. Owners are the most important ingredient in this industry. The last thing we need is Addington doing this to them. To be asking for nominations now before most horse that may start in the cup have hit the race track and ask for a $400 non refundable inital nomination fee is robery imho
  14. I have spoken to a few comittee members, a couple of Met ones & a committee member of the ATC. (The Auckland Cup also has acceptance fees) One on one they all admit they can’t see the sense in acceptance fees, yet no one seems to care about questioning the wisdom of these fees with those that insist on applying them to group races. DKC is right, no one is prepared to give a rational explanation of why we have them.

    Such a good initiative...... our dirty cousins just seem to be able to consistantly offer and deliver on product and initiatives that punters desire and in turn engage with... come on tab! No shame in borrowing some innovative initiatives to help stimulate positive revenue and reputation...

    Kerry's book was an eye opener. Plenty of pros got cleaned out gambling it all away

    So NZ owners race for stakes supplied by TAB turnover/profitability and this post is encouraging owners to bet with Unibet. The slide just got steeper.
  18. What's it to you dkc, it seems very personal, have you a share in a horse that's being nominated?

    Anyone with half eye on Coolmore and Ballydoyle could see a mile off they would have used Hippocratis . A check shows a once raced Hennessy colt out of Ballydoyle yard 16 years ago, 7th under Pat Cosgrove at Naas earning career total zero prizemoney towards his million buck price tag at yearling sales.

    Dixon could be found on cold Monday afternoons at Windsor when they used to race over jumps there round the figure 8 track mid winter ducking and diving round the Tatts enclosure ,an easy drive from West London .Yes old Brazil would take a bit of time to turn on the ball now .

    All great players - Kerry a personal fav with my Blues - did time for a bit of GBH but thankfully back hosting at Stamford Bridge now. Brazil a bit of a loose unit and enormous bloke now - interesting to listen to on Talk Sport though

    with Unibet. John Allen said the new Betting site would make the NZ Industry competitive with overseas so I would expect this to be made available to any Kiwi with a NZ TAB betting account. I know some owners in NZ with NZ TAB bet accounts receive around 20% extra on runners they own as they have told me but unfortunately it needs to be made available to all like it is in Aussie. Unibet Owner Payout: This is one of the most special bonus Unibet has to offer. It is exclusive to horse and greyhound owners in both Australia and New Zealand. The owners register their dogs or horses at Unibet, and they are rewarded with 15% of every bet they make on the animals. Remember to enter the Unibet Bonus Code Australia.
  25. Not sure about Mandela in that hot field weasel. The horse you want to be backing at Randwick on Saturday is Libertini in the Silver Shadow Stakes. She is hands down the best 3 year old filly in Australia. Gerry Harvey has nabbed himself a quality horse with that one. Super star.
