    Three in tomorrow Bendigo, 164 starts between them, no wins . Two drawn the outside gate , the 105 start maiden drawn midfield . Anyone known the OZ or NZ start record for a maiden , I know that old pacer went round for nearly 200 I think, Kelly Evander it's name but 105 for a galloper that's a lot .

    Yeah I know , I got fair belted by huge seagull shit Flemington a year or so back , mopped it off with losing ticket then burnt my hand under tap for five minutes , on the nose though that's bad .

    Those seagulls are deadly late on the Flemington card , big massive dirty dollaps of the crap raining down, the half eaten burgers and hot dogs play havoc with their guts .

    Place 6.....today please T.A.B. 05/04/20

    Captive audience at moment , even the few of us working have some downtime to watch some real live action and have a bet , they ran a virtual Grand National yesterday in UK, by all accounts very popular , on free to air , primetime and all profits to health charities . It just takes a bit of oomph , no oomph nothing going to come out the end of this .

    Kinda agree , get it done hard , put all arrivals in hotel rooms for however many days , NO exceptions then get back to some normality asap for us buggers here paying the taxes or the people who've lost jobs can somehow get moving with theit lives again . We cannot be locked up forever for the dribs and drabs making there way home , some after years away or earning the big coin offshore paying FA tax here .

    Watch for laugh.

    I think the big one is the All American Derby at Ruidoso Downs New Mexico , they have heats over number of days. I read once they bung in some thoroughbred blood every few generations , some kind of equation of thoroughbred to quarter horse blood allowed , think it's how it works . There's thoroughbred v quarter horse races on you tube . The yanks have a bit of mule racing too .

    Anyone for a game...seeing we’re all bored

    No jockeys allowed ? I still enjoy the ones riding a finish a circuit early or the jump jockeys in UK sometimes taking wrong course , the one at the Valley was a cracker a few years back and the one at Hoki who rode the finish celebrated and went round again and horse still ran a cracker , I don't see them as idiots so i suppose that counts them out too , just a we all make errors department part of racings character . Like riding the wrong horse at Bendigo last week.
  9. Iam a Russian Camelot man too, massive BB last time . Shared Ambition in Doncaster , the prep looks a bit odd to me races and 1000 metre trials for horse that looked to be brought with cups in mind , Waller masperplan in place ? . Has a bit of my tight arse ew coin , as does Redzel, a Champs never out till he's out .

    Shown as Active on the RISA website but 12 so has to retire this year . Last raced Nov 2019, 158 starts and over million in prizemoney . Amazing horse and that's some serious care been given by the trainer . Saw it in race card once thought that name reminds me of a horse going round a few years back, it was the horse from a few years back .

    He has loads in at different meetings up to Bendigo next Tuesday he has another ex Te Akau unraced horse in Twilight Zone in at Werribee Saturday . Takahe is due to have its 33rd start since 31st March last year , no wins from 37 . Most of these horses probably keep a bit to themselves but he amazes me how well he keeps these horses going , they must be in good nick because vets would give them a decent look the amount of times they turn out .

    NZTR update

    That's to Paddy Power is that right ? Paddy Power and Betfair got some big mega merger going on been given go ahead by UK authorities , not sure NZ Tab will feature much in considerations however on plus side it's not in their interest at all to let it go to the wall , or i cannot see why they would let it so who knows they might help a bit .Maybe they could let it go belly up and step in .
  14. I'd have a go at Randwick 18th All Aged Stakes and Hawkesbury Cup Day 25th , they have a few group races that day I think .
