    True there is a lot of armchair critics, but also must be many owners that get frustrated with paying for poor rides, and let's face it even the best have them,

    Off to Flemington

    I know they have the big screen on feature days, I find it a bit blurry to watch, the tackside coverage from your armchair is very good, but I guess you can't have it always.

    Our Flying Ace

    Certainly won well, never easy to win any race these days, so great start to its career, have to win a few more yet to reward it's owners for the purchase price, with the preparations as well.Then again it's all about the passion for most owners.

    RIP Chris Brown

    Was that horse called beechers brook, can remember that horse winning down there paying 90s, a long time ago in the days when trackside only broadcast races from one meeting, that day it happened to be a north island one, to this day an old friend still talks about missing out on backing him.

    Whatever it does it will improve on

    That old chestnut eh, just as bad as the mirror police, who are always looking into it.
  7. Yep, good call, the owner more confident than the trainer, who i thought said the 1000m may find her out, very good run, and the good thing about it is she sat out the back done her own thing, and ran on well, certainly better than being caught wide on the speed, and having a gutbuster first up, maybe today's tactics suit her better. Good luck for her future races cubes, looks like this may be her year.

    My only bet for today.......

    How far ahead can you have a bet for instance the nz galloping cup in November, and where will find the odds.

    Fly To The Moon

    Rider reported feeling the effects of recent racing, a wise man told me never condemn a horse till it's dead.

    Chautauqua....has he had enough....???

    I say let him start, if punters want to risk him either way, pay your money and take the chance, don't call it gambling for nothing, some of those trotters break week in and week out and get many chances before anything is done, but i guess they don't have the same profile of this champ. What a horse he has been.

    Passing of Monty Baker

    Those memories, are gold, no one can take them away, and you will take them to the grave, memories and moments that money can't buy.

    Dangerous life of a Jockey

    You want to try cycling to work, all that traffic, going through narrow gaps, thats not for the faint hearted either, and that's just getting there, not to mention work place hazards as well.

    Do you mean the race replays you purchase from nzhra of your horse wins. If this so you would expect good quality.
