    TAB Free Bets

    Not sure if this issue has been covered off before.... but anyway. Didn't realise I had a "$30 FREE BET" in my account until I accidently hit on the button (hope you know which one I mean). So earlier in the day I put the $30 on Grand Ariana FF PLC at $3.90 in the last at Ruakaka…. and it ran on nicely to finish 3rd. Well $30 x $3.90 = $117.00 but my account was credited with only $87 so if you happen to be a winner they obviously deduct the amount of the Free Bet off the winning total.?? (just glad I didn't put the $30 for a place on Aalaalune on the tote in the first, paid $1.10 so I would have been credited a whopping $3)..

    I'm definitely in the 93% of people, and because I have always taken "roughies", that's why I'll have a few $$ on Malambo at $6.75 FFPLC.

    Think if you were able to give the horses names that would help everyone to start searching.

    Went to an exhibition match in Wellington about 1997, Gabriela Sabitini vs Lindsay Davenport..... okay I admit it, I really just went to look at Lindsay Davenport.

    Good Luck....

    35 mins since the announcement, he is still listed in the TAB as a runner!!!.... but then if you try and put a bet on him it then shows SUSPENDED which is really frustrating because if you weren't aware he was scratched and continued trying to put a bet on him you'd be pretty pissed off by now.

    Sad News... a late Scratching on Vets advice.... Hope comes good quickly

    Name for my horse please.

    Congratulations HS... when I didn't make the short list Voltaire's Secret became my favourite name... Are you based in the North so will be able to make it to the races when he lines up.?

    Name for my horse please.

    I'm gutted too... CAFERS CALL didn't even make the short-list either. Thought it was a good name as whenever he ran everyone on RaceCafe would recognise the name straight away and feel as if they were all part of the ownership group too. Oh well, Good Luck to all those who made the short-list..

    Remember Greatness well... first thing to pop into my head was Earl Harrison. Looked back on the NZR website and yeah was always there or thereabouts. Wasn't scared to travel him or back him up. You would have had a few fun trips to OZ.

    ah gotca… sorry, just thought you were referring to the previous race... I shouldn't make assumptions.!! So what was your horse that won the Manawatu Cup, might have to try and find a replay of it.?
