    OBESITY.

    Must be careful Aquaman. You thought it was Caitlyn Jenner's hand you were holding... but it wasn't Nice.

    OBESITY.

    I see what you mean with the KFC comparison GONSTA but would an advertising agency use fat Albert in a KFC TV advertising campaign? They probably should as that would be a fair representation but they would never do so as it sends out all the wrong messages. Same with Coco Cola advertising. They routinely show lots of young trim people jumping around at the beach but when you look at the amount of sugar in Coke a more accurate reflection would be fat Albert eating KFC and drinking coke.

    Glad you didn't show the front view of the individual to the left of fat Albert. It's actually Caitlyn Jenner. I need a bucket quickly.

    OBESITY.

    I agree with the thread starter. Not only are a fair proportion obese,they also invariably walk with a limp favouring one leg. Belly out to here is not a good look in any sport....except sumo. If you can't look after yourself,how can you look after a racing dog with all it's requirements? It's an unprofessional look. Surely another handler can be used until Mr Blob measures up? I see some venues have handlers wearing coloured coats etc to match the race number of their charge. Very professional look. The issue here is not helped either by a "security guard" limping alongside the handlers who looks like he lives by the counter at Valentines. Guy looks like he'd have a heart attack if he had to walk further than the letterbox. What will the guard do if any offender decides to walk away briskly? "please bad guy,wait for me to catch up". Greyhound racing is increasing each year. If you want to sell it to non greyhound people,you need to improve the image. If you had fat Albert on the gate puffing away on his fag with HATE tattooed on his knuckles,you will have sold an image,but is it the image you want to sell?

    Thoughts on M.M market?

    If bookies have set the fixed odds market with five or six paying under even money for a place then hows the tote looking? If you won't use the tote as your bet will kill the pool then surely you need to look at the better races with bigger pools? Most trackside presenters wouldn't know value if it jumped up and bit them on the bum. As Crucible says,they invariably describe anything that is not favourite as "value"..even if it's not.

    Is Methven a grass track Brodie?

    Thoughts on M.M market?

    If your logic works for you with your betting Brodie then more power to you. I've seen you say it is extremely difficult to consistently win off the gallops. I personally find it extremely difficult to win consistently off low grade low value harness races. So many question marks over fitness and motivation etc etc etc. At least with the All Stars you know they will be 100% nailed down for the big one's and with no question marks about motivation. If the All Stars winning is as predictable as you say then surely there is a way of winning on the punt with them? I personally thought the $3.80 Piccadilly Princess paid to beat Golden Goddess was nice. Did you see Piccadilly Princess beat GG at their previous start?. Can you see a horse to beat Lazarus in the Derby? The All Stars all can't be paying $1.10

    You shoot your own acquirement down in flames. Talk about contradicting. The races are predictable but there are no such things as guaranteed winners. What does that mean Brodie? I can only speak for myself but I get a buzz from winning money off any bloody thing. If I won $1000 off a $10 bet it still has the same monetary profit value as winning $1090 off a $100 bet. Still spends the same. I try not to get emotional about money. I also haven't had many certificates from the TAB for picking $20 winners etc. I honestly thought you knew a thing or two about betting. Don't you like money? If you did you'd be all over All Stars runners like a fly on brown stuff. You don't like the All Stars and you don't like predictable winners so as a punter you don't bet and just whine instead. Hows that working for you? I can tell you this. I can watch a group one race without betting on it and really enjoy what unfolds. If the winner pays sod all it does not detract from the quality of the race. I just don't get that same feel in a low value low class unpredictable race elsewhere. If you do,then good luck to you. With respect Brodie,you need to examine your own logic.

    Why would you expect more from the tooth fairy than me Brodie? Are you a narcissist? Is that $1.10 a guaranteed winner? If so,why not put the house on it? Why not anchor it in trifecta's,first four's and quaddies etc? If I was a $50 win punter I would never put that on a $1.10 shot but I would look for value elsewhere in the race. Perhaps a place bet. It's not that I enjoy the All Stars. What I do enjoy is seeing great horses and big races and I especially enjoy the fact I can back them with confidence. The $1.20 on Hughie Green was looking a bit sick as soon as M.M handed up to it's main opposition on Friday. Can you imagine the All Stars doing that especially in a G1? Yes,it's your prerogative not to bet. Save your money for the very exciting and oh so predictable elite races at Otaki. So you're not going to bet on Derby night? So no more bitching about the All Stars winning more group one's a few hours later?

    Clearly comprehension is an issue with you Brodie as several others have pointed out. Where exactly did I attack Robert Dunn? I described him as a magnificent trainer. Is that your definition of "attacking?" I merely pointed out the difference between the two top trainers in regard to targeting the big money races. Yes some punters will not bet in races where there is a raging hot fav All Star or otherwise. Others will just put more on. If the All Stars withdrew all the runners on Derby night do you honestly believe betting turnover would increase? If you believe that then the chances are you are still putting teeth under your pillow hoping for a visit and $2 from the tooth fairy.

    So Mark Purdon is selfish now? Human beings have lots of emotions when they win a Group one classic elite race. I didn't know guilt should now be added to the list of emotions. Robert Dunn gives more support to clubs than Mark Purdon? Sorry I didn't realize Robert was running a charity. Last time I looked Robert Dunn was doing very well out of harness racing. What the ##*^# has Maria Sharapova got to do with this topic? More of your slurs totally devoid of merit. So should everyone avoid Derby night because it won't be exciting. Why? Because some of the All Stars big names will be racing and likely winning. Great logic. I thought you had something to debate with. All you have is bullshit and anonymous attacks and slurs. You attack those with poor UDR's and great UDR's. Best you stick to betting at Manawatu and Otaki.

    Thoughts on M.M market?

    I think what I've been harping on about with the All Stars targeting specific high value races is illustrated with premier night at Auckland on Friday. Race 1. 20k trot. No All Stars runners Race 2. 20k pace. No All Stars runners Race 3. 80k G2 Delightful Lady Classic for the 2yr old fillies. Three All Stars runners. Probably first three favs. Race 4. 30k trot. No All Stars runners. Race 5. 100k G1 Cardigan Bay Stakes. Two All Stars runners. Clear top two favs just like last year. Race 6. 40k mares race. No All Stars runners. Race 7. 250k G1 Great Northern Derby. Three All Stars runners. Clear top two favs. Race 8. 50k Auckland FFA. One All Star runner. Likely favourite. Race 9. 20k pace. No All Stars runners. Race 10. 20k pace. No All Stars runners. Those numbers highlight the targeting of high value elite races. There is no accident about these figures. Just for the record. Robert Dunn is our leading trainer at the moment. His runners below. Spot the difference. R1. 20k trot. One runner. R2. 20k pace. No runners. R3. 80k G2 pace. One runner. R4. 30k trot. One runner. R5. 100k G1 pace. One runner. R6. 40k pace. Two runners. R7. 250k G1 Derby. No Dunn runners. R8. 50k race. No runners. R9. 20k trot. No runners. R10. 20k pace. Two runners. Both are magnificent trainers. One is set up to take all the cream off the cake. One is not.

    Yonkers Harness

    I understand the small amounts being wagered but what comes first? The chicken or the egg. If the races are that pointless,then why have them at all? I've watched a fair bit of exciting American harness racing over the years. Not much of that involved veterans going around for peanuts at Yonkers. If you're going to deliver a crap product the chances are punters won't bet. Why don't they offer good quality American harness instead? There is plenty available at Saratoga,The Meadowlands,Balmoral Park etc, It would also be helpful if the NZ presenters actually had a better understanding of the betting odds. They seem to know that 1-9 equals a very hot favourite but quickly drown after that.They are relatively new to the game and are only familiar with parimutuel betting. Their limited knowledge of the horses racing is also not helpful. Not sure why you'd say "interesting to note" etc as if it's a conspiracy or I'm being less than honest . Fact is I'd rather bet on the NZ TAB mostly because it's much easier and faster to withdraw funds. I'm not a big punter in terms of bet amounts so the poor fixed odds offerings of the NZ TAB don't come into play for me. The NZ TAB does not offer fixed odds betting on the American racing anyway. As a harness racing fan I also have a preference for wanting to see more harness racing on TV. We are not competing with the greyhounds very well in my opinion. They are increasing. We are decreasing.

    Failed Breath Tests

    I have a nice memory of meeting a beautiful young lady at a place called Blackball. Not to be confused with Blueball which was also present at the time. The Blackball Hilton even seemed like a five star hotel after a few pints of home brew and a delicious possum casserole. She went on to make a lovely horse trainers wife but just for a brief moment she was fortunate enough to have a brutally handsome man to play spin the bottle with. I told her how lucky she was at the time. I feel confident she still looks back with fondness reminiscing about those 52 seconds.
