    Harness Racing Names

    sorry to the rest of you guys, yes im not 100% on the spelling , but im sure you get my drift, i say it as it is, just i no who this guy is, born in cobden helps, and knowing hes got this small guy syndrome ,. and doesnt like when other people have a say over and above what he does.seems to think what ever he says is correct, but he always talks from his pocket, in other words backs the wrong horse.

    he wasnt quite as good as the previous two, but i no he did beat them at some stage,the three had some real battles, when i said hall of famers, i mean those three in the day were famous, two of them had cult following.

    Harness Racing Names

    i hear what you are saying , my point was harness horses like noodlum , commissionaire , and olga korbet were three horses in the 70s maybe early eighties who were pacing hall of famers in there own right, not as today, but some names today are not very original, and im dam sure the guys who name these new ones today no of the previous ones that were famous , thats my view anyway, might be wrong.

    learnt from very young age with the butts / jones stables that they seem to target the $8 / $10 marks mid week , at least you can loose 7 times and then get your money back.

    make a good point , frustrating when you punt on them or others you think should do better , ive had experience and history with them, prefer to see them on big days to be fair, same old old, go again next time
