  1. A final thanks to Scooby, Pondy and substitute scorer John (saved me from the task ), for a fantastic job putting this together. As mentioned, I think this was a great tonic in lockdown and has rekindled my interest in the site so job well done guys. Congratulations to the Sunline Team and the Top 3 individual place getters. Some pretty solid form by all 3, and I come away happy to have secured a Top 10 at least, but somewhat lucky to hang on with after freefalling down the leaderboard on the last day. Despite erratic behavior and a tongue tie on for the last race causing him
  2. I remember in the old days at Ellerslie outside enclosure (cheap seats),you used to bet out the front and the collect window was around the back. When the field went past us there was probably still 300 to run, but remember the odd occasion of my Dad heading off to the payout window because it was obvious his horse was going that well it was all over at that point. I think this might be one of those occasions

  5. Hi Gruff - Not sure what went on there? I thought by 'liking' Memphis's comment, I was giving you my support . I get distracted a thousand times per day trying to juggle work and home life, and tried to steal a moment to get back to you about your very kind offer , but seems I have only managed to tip the cart upside down by possibly not understanding my actions ?? To be honest, after a fair time away from the site I am still struggling a bit here and there to catch up on the formats for posting etc I've enjoyed our banter back and forth throughout and rest assured I will be cheeri
  6. Thanks to Scooby, Pondy and Say no More for the effort that has gone in to this fantastic comp! Lockdown has been challenging in this household and I've looked forward to this on a weekly basis. The last time I won something was a $20 Meatpack pub raffle in 1989 so it's nice to have that winning feeling again today. Looking for a big day on Saturday to keep it going Cheers, Phil

  11. Gust of Wind, or somebody verbally farting perhaps Gruff That was an amazing win though! Thanks for sharing.
  12. Enjoy your dessert John - I hope it's something decadent and rewarding. I enjoyed the day and cast my memory back to my only on track Cox Plate experience. Queued up about 50 deep to pay $65 AUD for ground only admittance and the only spot I could grab was on the rail close to the 2000m start. I was lucky enough to see So You Think (amazing animal 'in the flesh'), Black Caviar & More Joyous that day. Worth every cent of the entry fee for that day out. Cheers, Phil
  13. Awesome job John - thanks for your efforts in keeping the updates / entertainment going with Paul away.
