  1. what brasses me off most is that between them the two health 'authorities' had sent the non-responding 'close contacts' a letter - so they had a PHYSICAL ADDRESS - but nobody thought it a good idea under these urgent circumstances to knock on their flocking door!
  2. looks to me like they've already decided the venue for Sunday!
  3. yes, spare a thought for everyone in the industry affected by this Gummit decision ..its not just one race! ...lots of business gets done over the carnival. Is it viable to run the Derby on Cup Day instead?
  4. yes, well done well deserved, Jacob.
  5. definite chance and very game in the Guineas, Gruff.. my query on him is whether he has enough 'miles' in his legs for 2400m next week ...only 1 start beyond 1600m - Milford is already a winner over 2100m at Ellerslie in Jan (Gingernuts Salver)
  6. I'm keen on Milford in Derby ..a bit one=paced in Avondale Guineas but ground away, only 1.5L from winner at post over 2100m without threatening the winner ...reckon 2400 Ellerslie next weekend will be spot on! hopefully will be the superior stayer on the day .close relative of Sacred Falls
  7. perfectly said, Jacob. Many of us who watch the industry quite closely (but dont / cant know all the ins and outs) could see what was going on with her placement. It must be quite difficult for you to see the way her career has unfolded thus far after she showed such potential as a youngster. Good luck for the future. You have the right attitude.
  8. If memory serves, she was quickly removed from Jacob's stable straight after the surprise narrow loss fresh-up at Ruakaka ($1.40) and sent to Team Rogerson. Failure in the Tarzino was the first of many unplaced starts ad she has only won one race - a maiden at Te Rapa. And here she is rattling round R65 fields in the summertime of her 5yo season. Wouldnt surprise me if Team Rogerson put her over the sticks before she retires. And I'm only half joking...
  9. Anyone with half a racing brain can see that Aalalune has been poorly placed and over-raced ever since she surprised everyone by placing in a Grp 1 as a 2yo. Rogie had dollar signs coming out of his eyes and the horse got wrecked as a result of impatience to get more black type and 3yo glory....but why so early in the Spring? Beaten in a maiden sprint at Ruakaka, straight into the Tarzino early Spring with a horse whose racing style screamed for more ground and wetter tracks and just a bit of time to grow into herself. She is a shadow of what she might have been if they'd just waited for the

  11. I'm no expert but I think VE is a big chance Tuesday. Classy multiple Grp 1 winner,, well weighted, in-form, handles all tracks (rain no problem) and has the 'will to win' written all over her, if you watch the Caulfield Cup replay the last 50m she had every right to cough it up but dug deep. Could she possibly be another Maybe Diva in the making? Capable of winning over 1600m-2000m at wfa early in a prep and just gets better and better.. The thing I like most aout her is the ability to put in a very fast 200m sectional -that destructive 'turn of foot' that we saw in the CC. If she can 'go to
  12. Have to say this year's Cox Plate is underwhelming. Would have preferred to see Verry Ellegant tackle this race rather than Caulfield Cup. Her turn of foot and ability to make ground while cornering would have been dynamite at MV.
  13. how about giving some credit to VE for that incredible turn of foot to get to the front and sheer guts to hold out a big strong challenger
  14. yes, and all of them display more personal courage (not to mention understanding, affection for and appreciation of horses), than the 'animal welfare' loonies
  15. are the onion and potato growers allowed to water their land? Surely irrigatio of a racetrack when necessary should be OK ...sue the Council for unfair restraint of trade!
