  1. Im not expert on harness racing but isnt it due diligence to check your actual tyres and wheels before each race. How does a tire crap out at the start of a race ?? $1.20 shop gets pulled up after 300 metres. Didnt lock wheels or hit another runner. Honest WTF is going on - TAB will be laughing first leg of their Super surge as well.
  2. Yes saw that now. Point was they should have been up since last weeks draw. Surely the TAB could do that.
  3. The big dog races are on this Thursday and the TAB still does not have a fixed odds market on the final. Didnt they use to automatically go up after the box draw for the final. Have they got this bad and slack, I could frame a market in 5 minutes. Anyone know what the hell is going on wuth this mpb ?
  4. Cheers SNM . We'll run and good fun. Went from the penthouse in Race 1 to the shithouse. Good luck everyone.

  7. George Pelli innocent. And pigs fly. He had total knowl Cardinal Pell case was a joke. He had full knowledge of what went on in his seedy cult if the church. Very lucky to get off. Catholic Church has a lot of power and money.

    I bow to you Mr Chin. Still training and driving a winner in town. Handle bars down and challenged and fought back for a nose victory. What a marvel of a man. Hope you had a vodka to celebrate. No idea if you do drink or not but would be rude not to considering all your horses have Russian names.
  9. I agree he has been harshly singled out. I remember at the time it was reported there had been quite a few breaches by different people. How was Leo singled out. Maybe for his controversial stance sometimes that decided to make him a scapegoat for everyone. Shit Leo . Law sucks.
  10. Great post TM and Value I must say a wonderful topic. I love hearing stories for the good ole days. I remember only as far back as collecting from the back of the tote and the massive crowds. Were tickets hand written and if so up to what year?. Thanks again.
  11. If a house was 20k wouldnt it be equivalent to a 100k race ?. I'm blown away by the stake money in relative terms.
  12. So you win and then you get paid a premium on top of your winnings wish I was alive in those days.
  13. So given this Chevy what was stopping every man woman and dog owing a horse ?. I mean a 2k first prize would have been a deposit on a house for a lower class Forbury win. Were horse flesh and training fees astronomical or something ? How much do you estimate training fees would have been a month? Say it was $100 and first prize was 2k and now I'm guessing 2k and first prize would be 5k. 20 times your training fees for one win as opposed to 2.5 times now. Wow. What a state of disrepair the industry is in now. Must have been some very happy owners back in the 70s.
  14. Cheers for sharing. Had no idea stakes were so good in those days. Would have been a bit easier to make some money from racing one back then. I wonder what the price of an average standardbred would have been. I think I read at article today that the average wage in 1975 was $125 and a house 20k.
