    horse of the year

    Imelda Mary was NOT a nomination for Horse of the Year. She is listed among the HOY awards winners as joint winner (with Queen of Diamonds) of the NZ Bloodstock Filly of the Year which is points based award. She was a dual Group 2 winner of the Royal Stakes & Sir Tristram Fillies Classic & ran third in the Lowland.

    CongratsTeam Melody Belle

    the field around Starcraft wasn't exactly full of WFA stars either...the winner was a good handicapper only…..and the depth around some of those Melbourne WFA races this spring hasn't been great either...looking at the Turnbull Finche will win the big handicap according to P4P, Hartnell is 9, Mystic Journey was given the kiss of death by CT & a couple of the imports look overated…..hopefully the best of the best will be around for the Cox Plate & Mackinnon

    don't care if he does.....as long as it has nothing to do with our industry

    John Allen

    have to disagree here P4P......read his statements in the last 3 years of annual reports....full of bulls**t and wet dreams.....I don't know but would hope it has been suggested to him, probably at a cost to the industry, that he move on.....and I would think there is very little of his reputation left

    why would she have left it all out there but Crystal Ocean be a massive chance in the Arc.....Frankie never touched her with the whip and she was going away at the finish.....nothing in that field will get close to her at Paris Longchamp

    RITA's Rolling

    if you got your head out of Allen's arse for a second you would know that RITA is a reconstitution of the RB so therefore I would think all contracts of RB employees would roll over as well - who do you think is going to pretend to be running racing if this was not the case? Do you think the RITA board has replaced the hundreds previously employed by the RB?

    How y’all looking now

    30 races run over the 5 days at the Royal meeting - 16 run on the straight course up to 1 mile including 2 28 runners miles and the best 5 days of racing of the year. huge crowds every day, even on the wet days. As Berri says most of those on course, on any course anywhere, watch either the big screens or on tv's spread around the course. If this greenfields project gets off the ground of course a straight course should be part of it...along with some sort of all weather or I guess we could just continue to watch horses circling the outside fence at some of our current tracks - binoculars not required
