Race 1 was not a great look for juvenile trotters and the industry in general.

    It looked that way.

    Especially when the 1 horse ("qualified" beaten 80 metres in a trial at Bunbury in NTT) spent half the race pacing.

    The fav only got caught by the strand because junior hit it as it was released, driver error.
    I don’t mind the idea of these races, a little more education needed

    Why was that horse standing sideways and not against the fence?

    What about the leader pacing for a lap and a half?
    Shouldnt the driver get suspended like they do in Victoria?

    Don't think it would have looked any worse if the drivers were blindfolded, pretty hand bunch of drivers lewis ,hall jnr,turvey ,voak,;

    No problem with trotters, but same as the pacers if there isn't eight runners at acceptance time bar it;;, the race should be deleted...understand if its a classic race it has to be run ..

    Only race chicargo bulls race on fri, re turnover on tabtouch held its own with was the last a trot race with regards win place figures on local tab. chicargo bull w. 8,326,p.3.673, the trot race.. 7,719, p.4.240.these 5&6 horse fields are on the nose with punters, irrespective if the best horse is racing,,,,,,,,, a c2-c4 westbred would have had a bigger turnover, and it was for 25k.

    Invalid comparison...one was a prime time Friday metro race and probably boosted interest wise because it included the horse that most consider the best FFAll pacer in Australia currently. The Northam meeting was held in what is increasingly the WA harness wagering graveyard... Saturday night...no matter where the meeting is held. That has been the case for decades now and will not change.
