Trackside

8 posts in this topic

Anyone else nauseated by these Trackside adverts? “equal of any in the word" "world class”. Really? Compared with where? Probably somewhere English isn’t the first language!

Honestly, we are sick of monotone preview shows, amateur-hour “betting strategies”, and talking heads.

Come on Trackside get off your arses and produce something worthwhile. How about some weekly trackwork – and not just 5 strides past the winning post and pointless trainer’s waffle. And then some stewards footage and sectional timing analysis – proper pre and post-race analysis.

And on the day would it be asking too much to see every runner pre-race? And for more than 2 seconds?

Their coverage of preliminaries has slipped to unacceptable

Their overnight coverage of racing is stupid. When it comes to English classic racing there is some interest unlike South Africa, Japan etc.

Now anyone having a bet is going to have the dividends on their phone, computer, tablet or whatever. The TAB's are closed overnight. So why cover up a view of the horses with the dividends. Its not just for a few seconds but the whole time. You would think people in NZ who are not versed in the form  see a neat looking horse then that would encourage a bet.

Would be nice to drop after race interviews, we know whom won. pre race winners would be nicer

They did approach Kloppite but he wanted Rodders and Sweens take home combined :rcf-tongue-2:

probably would improve selections if they paid him then, don't mind Sweeney so much, but they all seem to have 6 picks a race. Interviews with trainers pre race would be great, at least more of them, and stop having a horse and rider chasing a winner for a comment, that to me is stupidity.
