Farewell to the Queen......

65 posts in this topic

When Black Caviar retired in 2013 I never thought I’d see one better then along came Winx. After getting towelled up early on in her career by First Seal who could imagine the horse that she would become?!

My favourite memory of her will be seeing how she keeps her head carriage so balanced when she knuckles down. You can see a switch flick in her brain and that undeniable determination is impenetrable to the other mere mortals. 

I’ll be interested to hear what Darren Flindell has orchestrated once she crosses the finish line one final time.

Farewell to the Queen. Thanks for the memories. I will savour every second of today and will cherish the experience forever.

First Seal I think finished in front of her 4 out 5 meetings .

Are you catching up with Leo at Randwick Chris?

Have a beer and a pie together

I was at Randwick last Saturday - magic course and saw the mare have a hit out a great day and had a good win in the last too

Spare me Tom ... that’s the last thing I want ... can’t I have an enjoyable day with my high rolling mates rather than have the STD loitering around & trying to sit on my knee

It depends whether he’s remembered to pack his telephone books Tom. I won’t see him otherwise! :lol:

Haven’t decided yet....I’ll see what my stylist advises 

I hope you’ve got a new one short stuff as I think your previous one forgot to wear his glasses. :)

Cloud has burned off. Track should be perfect. Good luck for today. B)

Very tacky this one. Melbourne would’ve given her a proper “Banksy type” send off. This is quite embarrassing and doesn’t do the Queen justice. :ph34r:

What a poorly designed city this is. I can’t believe I lived here for 6 months. Scrambled eggs are better designed than this city. 

Melbourne - one train direct from Flinders to Flemington. One train direct from Flinders to Caulfield. One train direct from Flinders to Moonee Ponds (with a short 5 min walk to the Valley).

In Sydney you have to deal with this! :wacko: (Train to Central, then queue for a bus that takes forever through the Eastern Suburbs)

Sydney will always be Melbourne’s poorer cousin.

I think your stylist has gone a bit overboard this time short stuff. I prefer the Moonee Valley “Salvo’s number”. B)

Peter Tighe looking very dapper today is a striking pin stripe suit. 

When I asked this guy below if he has something rehearsed he replied “if she wins....He’s Eminent is a big chance of spoiling the party. :ph34r:

Gamble responsibly warning under horse that's won 33 straight , investing money on her has been safer than having money in low interest  current account of major bank, no bail outs required.

Put that warning up on big  pic of South Island maiden horse, but not her.

Ends in tears today , Eminent will claim the crown.

Good luck Red Rum. I would love him to give her a real contest today.

A day that will live in memory what ever the result . Every way I look at it Dubhe wins Cup , which with me normally means they dont win. Draw jock prep weight going trip all plus against a poorish  field although SCR ran with credit , Gallic Chiefton a difficult one to line up at times .

Have a top day.
