    That's not what I read:
     
    "Winx is gone.....didn't you see her last run ? She's either trained off, having a bad day ( females do that in spring ) or she's had a gutsful of running through pain."
    "Watch what Waller says pre race this week, listen very carefully and if or when he starts to talk in riddles and prepares all you blind mastubators for the inevitable let down....then best you run a mile.....and don't stop running because based on her last run the show is over."
    "Because we know, and maybe we see things you don't ( and can't )"
     
    But hey don't let what was said get in the way of your recollection of what was said.

    Remember seeing a post a while back, Someone saying something about "Winx having trained off in their opinion". cant seem to find it anywhere but its stuck fairly firm in my mind since i read it. Have to wander what the poster was looking at or was at least of a sane mind.

    the funny thing is Auckland and Cambridge would be the  weakest  in the country they struggle to get full fields week in and week out 
    and I know what will be said that Wednesday is week at wanganui well that dog races better up north than it did in the wanganui

    It may not be on the line but I've watched lots of close finishes from that venue (on TV) and the angle is always in favour of the outside dog (ie. if it looks like a dead heat then give it to the outside dog.  I backed a loser in that race but definitely thought the outside dog won even before any angle in its favour.

    I guess some people had bet on the Cannington dogs and the Stratford-on-Avon chase and wanted to watch their money run - sounds like the smelly fucker did a good job of fitting in all three (Minding, the chase and the dogs).  
    Admittedly there wasn't much bet in the chase and dog pools, and yes probably by similarly smelly fuckers (or other lesser class citizens than yourself), but the channel is there to provide, where possible, live coverage of the races they're taking bets on.
    If the purists want to watch the Ascot post-race then Trackside (with back-to-back racing) is probably not the right place for that.
    Right, back to my cheap coffee ......

    As a punter and greyhound enthusiast i'd love to see 6 dog fields, doubt it will ever happen as the more starters per race = higher turnover.

    Hi nathanleslie. Endless Gossip is from a great 2yo producing family. She won at 2 as did her dam Chingquillo who won two Listed races in Victoria and run third in the Blue Diamond Stakes. Her grandam also won at 2. If you are wanting to breed a sprinter The Bold One stands for only $2,000 or a sire like Proisir stands at $7,000. If you are looking to breed a stayer have a look at Zed or El Hermano who both stand at $4,000. Endless Gossip is by Towkay out of a Bletchingly mare. This sort of breed are adept on wet tracks. With either Zed or El Hermano you should get a foal that would be a real wet tracker! Good luck in your first breeding venture.

    GONSTA reacted to tonkatime in Agency accepting bets after result   
    I agree with what you are saying and the circumstances are different. Several times I have found odds round the wrong way and to be fair to the tab they have paid out in most cases. There was one case quite a few years back when they open a UK super league game around the wrong way and cancelled all bets. I assume they look at the liability and make a decision on how much it will cost them as to weather they then cancel the bets or let them run.

    You tell us all that the TAB do not set the odds that you want here is the answer.
    1 Cash up all your assets
    2 Contact John Allen (I Brodie will become the TAB Bookie for Harness I will put up my money for 50% of the profits)
    3 I have no doubt that after setting the odds that there will be a flood of racecafers taking the odds you will run out of money and be out of a job within 12 hours.
    4 Then you will go home you will not be restricted because you will be down to $1 each way bets and still will not be able to understand why any business is there to make a profit.
    5 How many years are we going to have to put up with your dumb comments

    I know many don't subscribe to the second-up theory and I know it depends on the horse, but I tend to avoid them second-up when they've had a good hitout first-up.
    I think Saracino is a better value place bet from the draw (will it get the distance?) and I really like the favourite Impending - nice in Golden Rose at second run back and then very impressive last start - has the wizard aboard (watch him in the last in Sydney today) and stable not worried about going the other way round in Melbourne.
    I've got four ahead of Sacred Elixir - Impending, Saracino, Divine P and Seaburge.  Just my opinion and I've been wrong plenty of times before now.

    Like I said I never bagged your selection. With his standing start  manners could possy up close to the speed get a soft trip and use his speed.
    if he's so tough how come John is always looking for a trail/cover then.
    tougher than most........ Give me a spell 
    even ring John an ask him. Bet you he tells you the same thing

    the only race he has ever done it tough in is the jewels at Cambridge but that was only a mile and they were a terrible bunch.

    Joe. I wonder where you are comming from, lottabul has been honest and straightforward and even a simpleton could see that banning a substance that is already illegal in the sport should need no warning period. The only reason behind that must be that it would have been embarrassing to expose people that they thought  were likely to be using it illegally. Other than that it does not make sense.
          You have obviously been around the traps a while Joe seeing you clearly remember Lottabul's ancient accident. Cheap shot bringing that up now when it has absolutely no relevance to the thread. Makes me wonder about your own history.

    But if you can't use touchtone and have the Internet what's the problem? I just don't think anyone who isn't capable of working touchtone would be able to go thru the hassle of signing up offshore.

    I don't know if they're really into writing you a cheque these days, but no problems doing a refund to your eftpos card.  Not always a TAB close by these days, but it's not too bad.  I am happy for them to hold only a small amount of cash for payouts.  I blame that on the scumbags that have robbed them.  I think they should have a sign on the door letting the criminals know that there's no use trying to rob them, as they will have sod all in the till.  If it saves one TAB staff member from the trauma of going through a robbery, then it's worth it.
    If you really need the cash feeling in your pocket, withdraw to your account, go to an ATM and get your cash there.

    Where was that out of interest? All retail outlets should be able to write a cheque & /or refund it straight back onto a debit / credit card. I'd be surprised if they couldn't do an eftpos refund.
