    M purdon is a champion trainer.the equipment they showed he is using is amazing.an innovator.must be very expensive.all those who think he has an un natural advantage I hope u saw it. Treadmill that gai warehouse uses and resistance sulkies from Finland.most couldn't afford it or have the horses to justify it but it is all above board.and of course great staff great young horses and above all a world class trainer. Amazing.

    Cup Day Fields

    Didn't a lot of northerners come for support races.i seem to recall support races were 20 kwhen I had born again Christian.now 25k. Not enough to entice many obviously.costs pretty high to go down.

    A legend retiring.

    I hear Richard brosnan last runners Friday. A man of high integrity who never took a backward step.on a personal note a man who stood by me in tough times and I have never forgotten.who could forget no response and bonnies chance. I hope all in the industry recognize hs achievements.I know he don't want a fuss but I hope the atc has plans to recognize his career.

    Another irrational decision by handicapping sub committee.horse with more than 2 wins can't go below 45.why.if you are a 75 year old golfer and u were once on 2 should they make your max 20.really its another in th he long list of decisions that really make no sense.i would like to get them face to face and take them on.also no discretion conti he's but there is discretion if you read on.bugger me.

    Handicapper actually handicaps.mr carpenter announces the winner of the Caulfield cup gets one kilo.he gave a lot of reasons.very refreshing.not black and white which is how a rating system should work.

    Stop it Gary shell think she is John Campbell.the good thing is the sport has a place for amateurs.the pros would make a mess of her. We need to cater for all levels of ability horse driver owner.its not all about the champs.mind you we should celebrate our champs Dexter Oscar bonavena etc they will bring people to track.

    Why not give a maiden that wins the rating they win off.say 48 and they stay at 48 in the non maiden class.stops them getting too high too quick.

    All they are doing is creating a class within a class.they are admitting their own system is flawed.whoever had this idea should go back to rating system school.trouble is they never went in the fist place.skipped first 15 years.
