Standing Starts.

6 posts in this topic

I didn't hear or see the race and I think it was Oamaru last weekend. Just heard Pete Early and Dave Mac lamenting the start of a trot race. Abysmal said Pete (being nice) and said he would be asking serious questions in his show tomorrow morning. I hope he adds race 2  at Alex Park tonight to that discussion as well. What a bloody shambles. (never had a bet). There's got to be a better way. No wonder turnovers are dropping.

Here we go again - and again- and again - back to the poor old standing starts.      Amazing how there is never any trouble with mobile starts!

There are quite a few false starts with mobiles eljay. I think many are caused by the mobile going too fast before horses have settled into their stride properly. I may be wrong however.

That surely is one of the reasons, but horses being animals are unpredictable.     Every meeting there is usually one example of a re-start, but because the offending horse(s) get another chance the punter overlooks these indiscretions.
