  1. And the winner is....... Matt Cameron. Sorry to hear Jason won’t be riding.
  2. Wow! Who wants to ride the best horse in NZ?
  3. Good on him! This is what horse racing is all about. I’ve just read him and 4 of his mates paid US$40 each for a 1/4200 share in a 12.5% share of the winner. Aiden and his 4 mates literally own a hair within the tail of Authenticity but it doesn’t take away the fact that they are owners of the horse and congratulations to them. Not many people can claim they have owned a Kentucky Derby winner. Great story for racing.
  4. Indeed Tauhei. The G is magnificent. In fact, the sporting precinct as a whole is the best in the world and the fact that it’s a 5 minute walk from the heart of the city makes it the best location too. Getting back to the G, it’s steeped in history and the Australians do it so well, honouring their champions with a statue of the greats around the perimeter. Even Warney has his own statue! (he was always going to get one but I love how the Aussies don’t muck around). The Members is just an incredible viewing spectacle with the ultimate experience having everything catered for. And as we all know the Aussies LOVE TO PUNT. Every conceivable opportunity they are downstairs in the TAB having a bet. It’s an incredible atmosphere, whether it’s a cricket or an AFL match and having 70 or 80 thousand at the G week in week out is common place, especially for AGL games. You can’t top 105K screaming fans at an AFL Grand Final. It’s a bucket list item which needs to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
  5. Indeed Uriah! Don’t worry, I’m well overdue and we’ve got plenty of bullets to fire in the coming months. Stick with me.
  6. Don’t feed the trolls Dockers. Your team played well the other night. Was a close game.
  7. Saturday 24th of October is set to become one of the biggest days in Australian sport. First to wet the appetite we have Australasia’s premier WFA race the Cox Plate then in a world first the AFL grand final will be played for the very first time in it’s history interstate at the Gabba and just to top it off it will be the first time ever that it will be played at night under lights!! The TV ratings will be through the roof and could very well set an all time record on the day! Just imagine Jennifer Eccles winning the Cox Plate followed by the Tiges winning the Grand Final to make it 3 out of the last 4?! How good would that be?!! Plenty to look forward to in the next couple of months. Spring racing is here people!
  8. Indeed Ohokaman. She ran a good third in her first trial up at Ruakaka (the old man drove up to see that one) and she looks to have improved with this one. I see Mick Guerin has been very bullish regarding Avantage winning the Tarzino for a long time now but judging by this latest trial it may not be as cut and dried as he thinks. Obviously she’ll be more potent up in distance but I wouldn’t be surprised if she knocks off the favourite with fresh legs. Looking forward to seeing her here in Melbourne for the Cox Plate.
  9. Indeed Ernie. I have developed an “iso addiction” of fine red wine. I’ve always had a penchant for a good red (Church Road Reserve was my fav when I lived in NZ) but lockdown this year has again brought my hobby to the fore. Need to find a faster horse than Mystic Journey though for this new expensive hobby!
  10. Well well well...... That was a bit like watching short stuff v Joseph Parker in a boxing match. No contest. Despite being Jane Ivil’s “pick of the yard” she very quickly started waving the white flag before the home turn had even been reached. The breeding barn awaits and with the Group 1 on the cv as well as the All Star Mile she’ll be a valuable broodmare. Not sure what to make of Rubisaki’s run. She didn’t show her customary turn of foot yesterday and may not have come up this time after a brutal previous campaign winning all those races. To make matters worse the Haselgrove Catkin McLaren Vale Shiraz I drank afterwards to drown my sorrows Very disappointing day indeed!
  11. Track is rated good today after a fair bit of rain yesterday. Stunning day in Melbourne with an even better day forecast tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing what Betty can do with a better draw and a good track. Currently paying $9.50 Fixed. Go you good thing!
  12. Absolutely Tom! Looking forward to seeing Rubisaki’s return tomorrow too. Mystic Journey into Rubisaki looks like a very good bet.
  13. And she draws perfectly at barrier 4 where as this time Savatino will need to come from barrier 11. Track currently rated soft although a bit of rain forecast for tomorrow with fine weather predicted for Friday and Saturday. Should definitely be a better track than they had last time. Go you good thing!
  14. With no rain and warmer weather forecast for the next few days there is an outside chance Caulfield could be racing on a good track come Saturday. With the improved track and a run under her belt, all she needs now is a soft draw to be competitive. Currently paying $9 Fixed the bookies are keeping her safe. Expect a much improved performance second up from Betty. Go you good thing!
