    It is usual to treat a group one event with more attention than one would pay to an Omakau maiden race. I believe the problem is that TAB staff do not know the difference between a group 2 race and an Omoto maiden. Their response will be an ambivalent; "shit happens". Shit doesn't just happen; it is caused by arseholes.

    The Tab had a bad day at the office yesterday In the herbie Dyke Levante was listed as LIFT At riccarton Camino Rocco was listed as Rocky Road At Riccarton race 10 number 13 was listed as Tanks when it was actually Panza They did how ever change to Panza about 30 seconds before the jump. With the amount spent on the TAB website in the last couple of years and the contract with developers to maintain the site surely we can expect better tha this. How often does this go on ???

    Was a good sales with a very good average but compared to the average stakes the horses will race for probably abit over priced for 90% of them

  4. Never seen this before - greyhound disqualified from 3rd in R10 at Invercargill today after jumping from wrong box. It was dog #10 and should have jumped from box 8 as listed, but jumped from box 5. Head on replay of the start shows the #10 board had been put over the 5 box, so not just a case of handler loading into wrong box. Not great for those who backed this dog to place or in trifectas & first 4s. Not great for those who backed the favourite thinking it has an empty box on its inside.

    Shocking

    Hasn't Shocking turned the corner. Looked likely to fall into that awful tag of being classed as non commercial a couple of years ago. He's batting 5.6% SW to runners which is a decent strike rate. Done it off significantly smaller books which is interesting. He adds nicely to Rich Hill's diverse roster.

    Riverton Race 2

    Driver T Larsen fined 500 for whip offence yet no mention on the drive of M.Williamson on Netherton Franco . He attacked for nearly a round giving his horse no chance of winning. Could have pulled back as huge gap to 4th horse. Suggest if this had been a junior or amateur driver they would have got a holiday! Consistent stipendary stewarding out the door here.

    Big Bad Bolt

    Well I for one absolutely enjoyed the viewin from AlexPark and cheered my ass off in the first when Bolt For Brilliance and his mate TonyH made the front and won it fair and square, Sundee tried hard, but when Bolt is in that mood, in his house, yeh nah, he's guna hand out a beatin every time, shame the South never saw the best of him, but last night that was the best of him (BFB) he's a big boy now, not that big gangly teenager anymore....High Grove, geez the Dunn's got summit there my my my, TrueFantasy easy as yuh like, Merlin and Seve won't be the last time these 2 draw swords, MagicFour

    Auckland noms

    The low noms at Auckland this week signal bigger problems over winter. Is it about time that apart from 2yo races, in run-of-the-mill meetings pacers are treated like the trotters: noms for maidens and the rest split according to ratings? Then mix types of races and hcps up for both gaits e.g. hcp 2700 stand one week then the next 2200 mobiles with prefential draw based on money won in last 4 starts. It would mix up who were the favorites.

    It will have been caused by an auto-translation - Camino Rocoso is Italian for Rocky Road, Levante could e translated to Lift in Spanish, and so on.

    Big Bad Bolt

    I think Herlihy knew he was going to win before he went onto track. No doubt a private run Friday and tender care during the week convinced him of this. He is very skilled at getting a horse right for the big occasion.

    Auckland T.C

    The Auckland Trotting Club have a huge problem. What should have been a showpiece of harness racing developed into a sick joke. When the fourth worst winner was at 5 to 2 ON, anybody with a room temperature intelligence quotient would know that this is uncompetitive racing.

    Sorry to spout the facts Martin, your the one who sees nothing wrong with the sport whilst it implodes dues to impropriety at many levels. Defend that if you like and make a bigger dick of yourself or take your head out of the sand and observe what many see

  17. Its pretty obvious I think you're a fool stopper. Why on earth would I enter into a bet with you? I have no interest in betting for or against odds on shots in a race in a few weeks time. I will study that race about 10 minutes before it jumps. I'm just as happy backing a $10 winner in a maiden at Cessnock as a $1.50 shot in a fillies race. I don't bet enough to be able to make any money off $1.50 shots; I will happily leave that game to you, and look on and smile like others on here.

    Sales

    Thought prices held up pretty well all things considering (some passed in lots already sold) but trotting vendors probably disappointed with 11/23 passed in.

    Big Bad Bolt

    Yes, there was some great racing during the weekend. Bolt For Brilliance won easy, no excuses for the rest. Highgrove is class but I like the look of the Nairn trained El Conqueror, a powerful gelding by Sebastian K. He is green and didn't handle the track but never gave up. Watch for him next season! True Fantasy, too easy. She's the next Amazing Dream. Merlin class, huge runs from Seve and Son of Mac Good to see the Reid man win a big one again. Again there were some amazing runs from the beaten horses especially Franco Mac that was miles back at one stage. Se

    Agree, as usual a bit of patience for our distance stallions is crucial.

  24. Flight booked. Lookin forward to seeing Espiona win the Surround. Since I’m feeling generous let’s give this We’re Doomed an option of making some easy money. $1000 (AUD) he pays me if Espiona wins the Surround. $1000 (AUD) I pay him if Espiona loses the Surround. She’s currently paying $2 even money. I’d rather you have my money than the TAB. Let’s see whether whether this We’re Doomed is all talk and no action. After all I stop every horse I ever bet on don’t I? Surely he won’t miss this opportunity? What say you We’re Doomed? Let’s see you put your money where your mouth is. Pe
