The race which stops half a nation. This isn’t the highest quality Railway Stakes of all time and I don’t really agree with the 4kg swing from top to bottom in the weights, but nonethel...

Yes, of course, that gulf will always be there...as it was when Johnson, Coulson, Schrader, Lindau etc dominated. I think the lay of the land was always Big stables v Small stables.  But there is, from my perspective, things that could be done within this...

The debut win at Narrogin defeated Never On Time and Bar Couture, not sure how their careers have panned out...SP price was $1.90 and the hoop Shaun Meeres. The Pinjarra Cup fourth...hmmmm. Was set upon!

Jay jay I respect everything you say. But the lay of the land now is big stables vs small stables. That was never the case in times gone by. I'm not sure any handicapping ideas will ever fix the gulf between big and small stables

This Nugget is what happens when you don't protect and develop your local breeding industry. It makes the whole on track scenario a farce. Not Bondy's fault ...he has been around a long time and has invested heavily in the industry and is now in a position whe...

With the benefit of hindsight the $9 that was available on Tabtouch for Cruz Bromac to win all three heats and the final was the way to go, especially with the way they seperate the major players in the heats. Having him running at $9 definetly would put th...

Dead heat in the last race but favourites took out every race at Narrogin tonight at pretty short odds for most of them

Stoned Again is a nice flowing type of trotter. Dam was Stoned At Midnight, probably accounts for her getting in foal!!!! Very clever jay jay. Haven't we all been stoned at midnight a few times???????? The "stoned" prefix I think comes from the bill and ...
