    Probably because jockeys arent able to travel inter-state.???. Isn't thats why JMac picked up the ride on Castelvecchio?

    Mulit issues

    Dont disagree with you. Another way to look at it, say you had $2 fixed odds on each of your 6 horses and they all came in you would have collected $24.65 for the $12 spend.. Taking the same 6 in a Multi with Any 2 (for $1 units), and if they all came in you would have collected $57.60 for the $15 spend.

    Mulit issues

    Reminder to self... read properly and check before sending. Earlier said: "but under the under system you cant take just the Any 2" Supposed to have said: "but under the new system you can take just the ANY 2

    Mulit issues

    Sorry dont agree with you totally. Under the old system yes it forced you to take "All 6" (even if you dont want it), but under the under system you cant take just the Any 2 (without the All 6). BUT, if you're on course it still forces you into an All 6 selection so go figure i.e., it somehow uses a different system from off course to on course.!!! Every single Saturday (off course) I usually take a roughie in each race at the North/Central gallops meeting and take them as Any 2 but got caught out when I tried to do it on course about 6 weeks ago because it said "Dividend too large" as it added in an ALL selection which didnt have a hope in hell of all of them coming in

    Did H Bowman drop his hands

    I noticed that too as the race unfolded near the end. Am sure the Stewards have/will be having words with him.

    Mulit issues

    Because you went for "Any 2" it would be calculated as follows: $1.45 x $2.50 x $0.66 = $2.39 collect $1.45 X $1.55 x $0.66= $1.48 collect $2.50 x $1.55 x $0.66 = $2.55 collect Total collect is $6.42 (give or take a couple of cents depending on roundings up and down etc). If there were any late scratchings in any of the races that you got a collect, then deductions would make your collect even less. FYI, if you'd only picked 5 selections and spent the $10 you would have got $1 units, picking 6 selections you would have had to spend $15 to get $1 units

    opie suspended

    Heres why Opie was suspended. The adjourned inquiry was just part of an unwanted post-script for Bosson, who was hit with a suspension for causing interference to Super Seth near the 1100m when he shifted in aboard Te Akau Shark.

    Cooper 38a

    Yes its still on Trackside, but I think you'll find its now not on until 9am Monday morning. Probably because American racing on Trackside is more important.!!!!

    Michael McNab

    Just noticed this on the Love Racing website. "Michael McNab | Not riding until further notice" So he misses the ride on Loire in the Lowland Stakes at Hastings tomorrow.

    Hi All, I've been in touch with Kingshill. He said he is going to donate his winnings to the Catwalk Trust, so just another example of how great and generous the people of Racing and RaceCafe are. Thank You Kingshill….
