Has T. Lee had a stroke??....

44 posts in this topic

Just listened to the old man’s horse Jennifer Eccles win the Lowland and T. Lee sounded quite obviously slurred in his call. 

Have I missed something here? Hope he’s ok.

Bizarre. Nothing wrong with that call at all. I thought Jennifer had about 100 owners, so stretching it a bit to say your old man owns it. I suppose he's an arab with a string of oil wells as well. I bet the other 99 owners are glad you never tipped it.

More nonsense from yourself.:rcf-clown:

Oh really? I’ve just listened to the call again now. He slurs his words from start to finish and can’t even pronounce “home stretch”.

His speech is definitely affected and if it’s not by a stroke then it’s definitely by something else. :ph34r:

He slurs his words from start to finish. Can’t even pronounce the word “home stretch” properly. 

I bet you wish you owned the tail of one half as good as Jennifer Eccles. ;)

You could only ever dream to be as good a caller as he is....

I thought it was decent commentary , iam not big fan of his commentary at times when he goes a bit OTT over some bog standard race  but he is good  , I am confused as to why he didn't bust out WAAAAAAAAAAAAY 2 GOOD ,as  that was a shut the gate brained them job . What a fantastic horse , 5k price well done the buyer . It's not the horses the issue with racing at the moment . So many good ones about . Cannot wait to see Levante go again .

I rate Tony Lee the best race caller in NZ. I always have done.

My observation was regarding the slurring of his words from the start to the finish of calling the Lowland. It’s obvious that his speech was clearly affected and if it’s not from a stroke then maybe it was from something else.

As for his father owning Jennifer Eccles......fuck me....you’ve got history in exaggerating your families involvement in anything you spotty prick so stop lying ( again), next minute you’ll be claiming your old man has raced 90 horses 

Go and ask Adrian Clark short stuff. He owns shares in a few at the moment and was at Karaka with Adrian recently. 

Jennifer Eccles, now she’s a decent race horse. ;)

Next thing he will be claiming his old man is some sort of champion sire.

Didn’t say he didn’t own a hair or two but as is your way it was “your father’s horse”

I’m going to start awarding you Pinocchio’s for lying or fabricating your version of the truth ( once you’ve scored 50 Pinocchio’s you can get a job at NZTR or the Racing Incompetence Unit )

Today I’m giving you four Pinocchio’s for suggesting your father owned Jennifer Eccles and two Pinocchio’s for suggesting T. Lee was pissed at work.

If Tony had a few and called the card at Hastings good on him:rcfe-like:

Not sure if you’re being serious or whether this is a tongue n cheek comment from you Gruffy but under no circumstances is drinking alcohol on the job acceptable in any occupation yet alone calling a race worth $100K. 
 

Can you imagine Matt Hill having a few frothies before calling the Guineas this weekend? Would never happen and to do so would be extremely unprofessional. 
 

Not a good look from T. Lee if in fact that was the case.

Its not health and safety related unless he falls out of his box CT :rcfe-like:

It’s not the health & safety I’m concerned about Gruffy although you do bring up a very important point. It’s more the professional look for NZ racing as a whole. T. Lee has a responsibility to call the races without slurring his words and he didn’t do that yesterday. For those who heard the race live like myself some would no doubt have been shocked. It’s not a good look any which way you look at it. 
 

Gripper Harrison hits the release button prematurely with one horse to load recently, T. Lee possibly drinking on the job, slurring his words and you wonder why NZ racing has been and will continue going on it’s continual downward spiral. :ph34r:

Tonys commentary was very good, he had a very slight lisp but nothing suggesting he was 1/2 way through  a crate of waikato CT ?  Let it go and enjoy the guineas Saturday , Mad Mark and Critter are on course at Ellerslie so the turnovers through the roof :rcfe-like:

You suggesting gripper was half cut :rcf-sad-1:

Not at all.

He released the field prematurely with one horse to load. It was unprofessional and he’d be the first one to put his hand up and admit that which he has.

T. Lee called the feature race yesterday from start to finish slurring his words.  It clearly affected his performance and was unprofessional.
