    GONSTA got a reaction from Tauhei Notts in Trump written off   
    $5 min bet, the blue column is if you want to 'back' Clinton, the Red is if you want to bet against her. ( someone else wants to 'back' her ) The amount underneath the price is how much you can put on. Eg if you wanted to back her currently you could only get $15 at $1.94 and $199 at $1.93.
    If you wanted to lay Clinton at $1.95 for the $90 available you would make $94.74 and betfair take 5% of your WINNING's only. 
    It's an ever changing market and you have the ability to lock in a profit if the prices change in your favour. Eg if you backed her at $2.5 you could now lay off at 1.95 and you have made a profit regardless of the outcome. There's been close to 6 mill matched on the next president market alone, after trump lost the first state he got out to $10+.
    Betfair is friggen awesome, even if your only betting $50 a week, your chances of coming out with a profit is far far greater than taking NZ tab prices. Live betting on sports is awesome, the markets aren't suspended 80% of the time like our monopoly, just be careful with the tv delay! Betfair is always one step ahead.
     
    Hope that isn't to confusing!! They have some great videos to learn about it on their website, I highly recommend it.

    "Made contact with another runner" seems to be a common phrase, why don't they name the other runner? I agree today's stipes report is a very hard read. 
     
    Never read 'contact' so much in my life in one report!!

    I don't have an issue with anyone having their say.  It's the almost 2 pages of back and forth, back and forth... "my dick is bigger than yours..."... "no it isn't" that is my issue. 
    The greyhound industry could be doing so well if people would just respect each other's differences, move forward, and just get on with it.  The pettiness is a constant and is holding the sport back.

    GONSTA reacted to chelseacol in Kaikoura Drivers Challenge Dexter at $1.05?   
    Well actually if you are talking true odds it's not double your money - bearing in mind the green 0 (and 00 on a non european roulette wheel)
    So the $1.05 might well be value depending on the probability. But let's not introduce reality huh ??

    After seeing todays attempt at writing the stipes report, I'm going to give up. It's as if someone at the helm allows the stipes only to use a few words.  What was wrong with the "old" ones. It's not even literate.  Please you can do better.

    Did I think that 1.05 was too short?  Of course not but at those odds how many took him at 1.05. Thats a bit perplexing to me given what you indicated prior.
    If he was actually a dead cert would he have not been paying $1.00 ?

    Congratulations to Mike and Linda on their quinella yesterday at Auckland it was great to see these long serving participants back with a couple of dogs that I am sure will give them quite a few wins between them. I have always held Mike and Linda in high regard as trainers their dogs are always well presented and look the part their strike isnt to bad either.The word round the traps is that this litter is their swansong sad if true. But I am sure Mike will keep tote turn over ticking over

    It is a poor service.....so much so that i don't even bother with it as they're rarely up there till nearly a week after. Example Cambridge Thursday....many dogs back up on Sunday at Auckland..........Hmmmm I wonder what hapened to that dog in the run on Thursday...I'll watch the replay....well I would if i could....only to find it hasn't been upoaded.....and generally isn't till around Tuesday two days after Auckland is over. 
    You can watch the replays of every race at any meeting in Australia on track, straight after every race is run. 
    Why should anyone have to wait till they get home to see what happened to their charges in the run.
    It's something I can't get over here in NZ.......it's such a simple task to undertake. Just one or two TV screens linked to a contiuous loop from the Trackside van or a recording device.

    I must have missed the flogging you're referring to.  He made some statements about Winx which have been quoted on here, word for word.  He was blatantly off the mark but won't admit he's wrong, instead resorting to a load of misdirection and abuse.   If you think that's a flogging, you and I clearly have a different interpretation of that word.
    And yes you're right - he will continue to abuse people on here with his very caustic wit, because that is just his nature.

    Here's the facts without the "short stuff spin"
    Short stuff comes out and boldly declares Winx has "trained off, having a bad day or she's had a gutsful running through pain".
    He then went on to say "best you run a mile and don't stop running because based on her last run the show is over."
    I then called him out on his bold declaration and offered him an even money bet for a couple of grand and the flea ran a mile and started talking up the chances of the import in the race.
    Winx comes out and bolts in hard held by 8 lengths (lucky I found a bookie game enough to offer $1.90) and short stuff tries to make up some nonsense story that he never doubted the great mare.
    Take of that what you will but those are the facts. 
    He's a sore loser. Just ask him about Weekend Hussler.

    Everyone gets things wrong from time to time, admittedly you were probably the only gnome in all of Australasia to say the Winx show was over but then again some bloke once said Kingston Town couldn't win but look what happened. I do appreciate though that things most blokes would take on the chin may go straight over your head. Do try at least  every now and again to admit when you may have been wrong

    Exactly. At least Leigh was a big enough person to admit he got it wrong regarding her. 
    Short stuff would never do that even when presented with black and white evidence of what he wrote! 
    "based on the last run the show is over"  
    You can see why short stuff is a Donald Trump supporter.  
    A bad bad loser indeed.
