    wierd names of horses and dogs.

    Didn't get my first choice in Arcadia but came up with Lycaon (a King or General from a Greek Myth who was from Arcadia who tried the have Zeus eat human flesh and was punished by being turned into a wolf/warewolf). Lycaon is pronounced lie-cay-on . Went with New York General for the other colt.

    Speeding Spur @Meadowlands on TV

    Sounds like it's a really good field as remember Manchego was unbeaten in its first handful + starts. Pity you need to subscibe to the USA site to get the racelines of horses past performances.

    Breeding trotters

    Think trotting dominance at the Sales in recent times have been the "Love You's" and lesser extent " Majestic Son's" .Not much else has had a look in but hoping newbies in "Father Patrick" will spread the joy for breeders.

    American Ideal

    Will be standing in Goulburn this season as higher number of bookings in Aussie. Still available to NZ breeders but is this a trend with racing stronger in Aussie and bigger market ?

    Names of horses within race results

    My mate bets with neds, all the time. TAB needs to clean up their act. None of the issues I have mentioned over two months ago are not fixed. They obviously DON'T want to fix anything. Aside from that I have to go and verify my account. No forms available at the local agency. This was actually done when I opened it many moons ago. They reckon the odd person have used TAB accounts to launder money.

    Racing Act

    I heard that the sports bet take out will be distributed by the ministers discretion , not the percentage taken. Other sports opposed this as they say it props up racing and racing clubs. Is this part of the legislation?

    Stunin Cullen for Sale

    I hear through the grapevine he is for sale , maybe lease. Who out there has one by him? How is it going?
  18. 2Piper


    I've heard that shortcuts were made during construction and some of it will have to be re-done . But again thats second hand or perhaps rumours flying. Time will tell when that meeting is held on the 19th.

    Couldn't happen here

    There will be a claim series of races at Forbury this winter I hear. Once in a blue moon a horse has listed with a claim in a regular race but not sure how it works as in the case of Art Union. (Think there was 20 + claims for him , ballot won by John Hay)

    Couldn't happen here

    And there was no claims tonight. No Apachemee claim price is $15K , was around $8k when in Sydney, can't recall his claim price .in Tassie. Here is his little half brother in Photo .

    Interesting drive

    Noting comments here above I would have to add that Blair was driving his horse the way it feels right to him. He can not determine how well the other horse is going because he is not holding its reins .

    box seat ,debate on blood spinning

    I heard some athletes were using it (in particular an American Football star whose name was mentioned but I can't recall the name as I do not follow that game ). It has the same effect on human recovery as equine athletes (in comparison ). Can be as deadly as well. Wonder if the crisis at Santa Anita racecourse is caused be using this technique on the horses (possibly opposite ).
