  2. I hope you have a great day. You have good fields and, with a smidgen of luck, some good weather. Chers Tony
  3. My thoughts are with you Cubes. My deepest condolences. Tony
  4. Des was on radio to drive turnover for the TAB. By talking to trainers and other tipsters he was able to provide people with some knowledge which was an incentive to bet. He wasn't there as a conduit of change. In my opinion he is a loss to racing, as is radio coverage.

  6. Take note Cubes - no lights on in the Woolston TAB
  7. I agree nomates. Surely there must be some algorithm they have used to make their decisions including such things as turnover, disposal value of property, cost to run meetings, upkeep cost and use for trials and training. I can think of no reason that such algorithm would not be publicised to industry participants.
  8. Scratching r1 please put in number 3 for number 5 Thanks

  11. Wow. Not being prepared to answer wether or not they are solvent. Both the RITA directors and the whole racing industry must be on thin ice. Watch out for the relocations to Australia.

  13. Extract from article in the Telegraph about Former trainer, Giles Bravery As a trainer, Bravery enjoyed his biggest moment when Torgau won the Cherry Hinton and was Cartier two-year-old of the year in 1999. He picked up the award the night his daughter Lily, now a singing student at the Royal Academy of Music, was born, making it quite a day. He was a regular subject of this racing diary, most notably on the occasion when he and his wife Fiona decided they needed to join a gym in Newmarket. Like the ducks in Paris, they were a bit out of water, it not being their natural habitat. Fiona was on a bike on one side of the gym while Giles was on a treadmill the other side when, beginning to glow, he decided to take off his sweater – without taking the practical precaution of stopping the machine. The jumper was halfway over his head when he lost his balance and the treadmill, ticking along at an impressive 10 kilometres per hour, spat him out like a human cannonball into the wall of the wall of gym where he lay, crumpled and struggling. Not only could he not see because the jumper was over his head, his arms were such that what was not blinding him had him trussed up like a straitjacket. Meanwhile, the woman peddling next to Fiona passed the observation that “the poor man over there has had a heart attack”. Despite having taken vows involving “in sickness and in health” (and this situation could have been construed as a bit of both), Fiona’s loyalty did not extend, on this occasion, even to admitting that she knew the “victim”.
