  1. The Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale 2019 after two days has been extraordinary. Their Live Coverage web site is Yearling focused, with huge screen back ground footage of the yearling in its own environment. The video footage of the lot in the ring focuses on the horse. It may encourage off site bidders. NOT on who is bidding. I truly appreciate Dave Ellis's sponsorship of the last 6 years of the Karaka Sales on line coverage. Will our Karaka yearling Sales next month 2019 match the investment into a vibrant Australian Racing environment ? 2018 was a record sale per Average sale For Gerry and GCMM and god knows what percentage increase will happen this year 2019. Steve Davis has unique auctioneering skills .He has the lowest" pass in rate "of any Thoroughbred auctioneer since 2014. Those stats are for Karaka, Gold Coast, South Africa. His voice modulation and pitch , verbal frequency, bullshit and knowledge and sheer charisma My vote for the best Auctioneer we have ever had. Steve Davis Peter Kelly, Jo Walls ,Rev Somervell Stu Hale rated 2233rd in Australasia. Rate your auctioneers here on this post . Rev

    Manawatu Cup - Previous Winners to reminisce

    Great list of some very handy Gallopers ! Thanks for that. Look at the 1999 winning jockey's weight.
  3. My recent experience in a Melbourne TAB appalled me. Virtual Racing. Dont let it happen here. Races with virtual Dogs and Horses. Eight starters per virtual race with pathetic names like " SunLined, FarLap, MainBrach, Makabedevil: Unsaintly: Think Bigger: Oaks Day loomed the next day and I wanted a bet on Graysful Glamour at fixed odds . As you do I observed the clients, surroundings. Terrific staff. High definition screens. 12 or so 20 to 40 year olds watching sports betting screens. 15 or so seniors backing Virtual Races .I think Keyton races were on that day with a decent Quaddie Pool. The Lovely manager of the TAB told me her weekly turn over was at least 15 % on quick bets on Virtual Races. Her percentage advantage per Virtual Racing bet was 0.25% better than Actual Racing . This is terrifying for NZ Racing.
  4. Terrific footage from Racenet !! https://www.racenet.com.au/news/emotional-reunion-as-darren-beadman-legged-back-aboard-the-champ-lonhro-20181212

    Saddle Trots Derek Balle Stables R8 tonight.

    Chevy I was very lucky to own a champion Hurdler that Pete Henley Trained. He used to beat Coruba Cruise. We took him to Aussie. He was an amazing athlete over the hurdles.His winning sequence was 12 in a row over sticks.Bob Bond trained him as well when Pete and Louis went to Sydney.
  7. I Never thought I would promote Trotting at Alex Park on a Friday night in a Galloping forum ! We fought for years to get legalised betting on Amateur Thoroughbred Riders events and they are such a welcome addition to supporting our industry.(Lower grade horses and bloody hard working riders.) Tonight we see another Saddle Trot. R 8 @ 9:44pm. I am sure this series will be very very popular in the industry. Quite a spectacle they are and some one reminded me the other week that I won two of them in the good old days of Car boot Bookies and Equalisators back in the 70's.

    Tab , Japan Cup form

    Good form for Japan available from: http://japanracing.jp/en/racing/result/ Worth 574 million Yen.That site gives odds too. Only one Deep Impact in the field of just 14 this year. I Seem to remember Horlicks beat a field of 18. The Japs are so very lucky we didn't take Soroc over for their Japan Cup. The boat trip would have taken 5 weeks and we couldn't afford a Boeing 788 -777 Almond Eye is the Oaks winner who is favourite for the Japan Cup http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0001203363/record/
