    A fair whack of it quite possibly left the state in the back pockets of M Purdon x 2 & D Aiken x 1

    Yes its sad what happened to Richmond Raceway - many fond memories - the betting ring had a real buzz to it i thought 

    Dont know how many entrance points there were - but i used to enter - about 50 metres further back from the corner of the home straight - and it was a lovely walk down towards the grandstand - with the birdcage - and all that lovely grassed area - and stabling area to the right . Right at that top of that grassed area - there was a guy with a freezer selling ice creams in the warmer months 

    The dissappointing thing is and its just not RR - but anything with character from the past - well today it is just one thing - and we all know what that is 

    Different topic - but same result - but when i was in Sydney - there was this beautiful old  building on 3-4 levels - full of antique dealers/- they  all had about 7-8 pieces - like say a bookcase or desk or lithograph - bit of Royal Doulton perhaps - and it was one of lifes pleasures to go their

    Have a guess what it is today - blooody units - anything which had character - is now either houses or units

    If G.P was sold what do you think would happen ?
    You can’t have it both ways complaining of track dimensions and racing style .
    Meanwhile appreciating History , Chatacter & Location .
    HAROLD PARK V MENANGLE no contest ! on which one most people would prefer.
    Most Harness Racing Juristictions committed a crime to the sport in there short sighted
    desicions .
    in some instances in Sport it can’t always be about money because if that was
    the case a handful of Olympic Gold Medals for the Australian Swimming Programme is a
    Bad return on Investment nothing against the Olympic Swimming Organisation.

    Ya gotta laugh. The "PACING WA SUPPORTS WA BRED MS PACE" has 8 starters, 6 of which have NZ as a suffix.

    Its going for 10 in a row - which is a blooody good effort Thursday night at Penrith- Race 3

    NR up to 60 - ideally drawn - gate 2 - over 1700 

    If you can believe those early estimated prices on HRA - its $3 second fave behind an ex Kiwi of McCarthys

    However Lukes horse - 2 wins in OZ - its beaten nothing and its run slow time 

    I think Dibaba might start $1.50 and lead and win

    Hard to miss the run of PTT’s own trained Just Barney last start. Soft run along the pegs today, bit of daylight late will have to be playing a big part in the finish of R6 at around the double figure mark.

    Some great work from all involved in getting Mollidor off the track at Bunbury last night after it unfortunately fell with a lap to go. They had less than a minute to unhook the cart, untangle the gear and stand her up to clear the track. Trust she is okay but Bailey's cart copped a hammering once again. Aiden DeCampo's hurdling skills need brushing up.....can smile about it now but some anxious moments before a brilliant outcome.
