  1. I don’t think Opie was really missed tonight. Do you? The stand-ins did a super job I thought, led by Johnathon Parkes. Liz
  2. There be a good chance then to get “overs” on the ones that they don’t back...LOL
  3. In my lifetime of inspecting some of the greats, Mill Reef, Brigadier Gerard, Frankel etc "The Prince's" youngest star on the horizon KINGMAN is the best specimen that I have ever seen. The man was a genius when it came to breeding thoroughbreds or upgrading them or he assembled the greatest brains in the industry to make it happen. I remember James Dellahook [way back then!] and wondered where, why and how. All these years later as I look back on "The Princes" thoroughbred empire, I am in amazement and oh so envious.
  4. I think that the previous broadcasts might have had something to do with TRACKSIDE, their presenters etc, so probably not. I am only guessing though. Personally I hope that it is, as it's much better than the podcast, if that the right word. Liz P.S Given Karen F-E a call and find out for sure, as she will know.
  5. It will be super racing, on a great surface. The two Group Ones are run at equal weights so 12 in each is pretty good. If the Telegraph was still a handicap, there would be 18 in it, but it wouldn't still be rated as a Group One...as simple as that! Liz
  6. Good God, I wouldn't admit to that, given the paralyse state that it's in. I must admit, that I once tried to do the same and failed, so I admire your tenacity. Liz
  7. Gee whiz, I wish that they had run the Railway that way the year we ran 4th to Loader. We might have even run 2nd or 3rd! There again CWJ on Loader, may still have produced his magic and got the great sprinter home.
  8. NZTR is saying that if they don’t get more nominations the meeting won’t go ahead. How many more do they need for it to proceed? It reminds me of the Health Inspector arriving at Bart Cummings training establishment, then proceeding to tell Bart that he had too many flies at which Bart asked; “how many am I allowed?” With regard to HB I guess we wait until tomorrow.
  9. My predictions for 2021 1) Mark Walker to leave Singapore and head up a new training stable in Australia for Te Akau. 2) The TAB will make the same mistake (as racing can only do) and appoint an Australian to head it up. (Hopefully because of COVID-19, it won’t happen for sometime, lessening the risk or saving the day)
  10. Contributer is certainly kicking a few goals here and in Australia. Two starters and two winners at Matamata two days ago. Good class winners in Australia too. As three year olds they seem to like 1400m + but not always.
  11. It's correct, as all mares 4 years or older, carry the same weight at this time of the year, for a race of that distance. Google WFA for more information.
  12. Wait until you get to Trentham on 5 December! [Subject to weather of course, as a cloud burst on the Friday night would stuff my prediction!]
  13. Well guys, I too have looked at replay [head-on] a number of times. he first horse past the post should have "stayed" the winner as, to me it came from behind, half way down the straight, to win. Normally it is the Chief Stipe who leads these bad decisions, but he was in Christchurch!
