Are Claimers on the WA Agenda?

Harness & Greyhounds
JayJayJayJay    5,190 posts
Another Ayjay, pretty much uncompetitive in WA, placed 2nd in a claimer in SA today. Smackwater Jack also now domiciled over there. Are there any plans or thoughts to revive Claimers within the new handicap system and if so, what might the conditions look like? As I read things, it may be an opportunity to keep horses within the WA horse population and keep them racing. The exodus to the USA of the likes of Lady Del A Renta, Luis Alberto etc is a different issue...but claimers may offer something to owners of battling horses if the conditions were structured correctly, they seem to work over East.....or maybe I continue to" live in the past".

    I like the idea of barrier draws based on claiming price.

    The owners can then handicap their own horses if they are fair dinkum.

    I think it is a no brainer - they are in every other state - Tassie Vic NSW - creates a market - can get new people involved - their pretty popular - there was one the other day and i read Dean Cernovkis - handy trainer - Canberra way - takes a team up to Albion Park- he won the ballot - because there was multiple claims for one horse

    Ian Gurney had the horse he claimed - won a stack of money

    What ive noticed with claimers - every now and again - there will be a horse in a claimer way under the price its worth - the connections are probably saying we are a certainty  to win the race - and theve got their fingers crossed it wont be claimed - but it is their to be claimed

    I know two of them are out of Classic Garry mares (Whiz and Demoraliser), so I'll take the punt and say all of them say "Grandma" to Classic Garry??

    Looking at the claimer at Globe Derby this weekend, with Another Ayjay drawn gate 1, it looks like the draw is determined by their claim price ...as suggested by Chariots a few posts back.

    Interesting mobile claimer at Launceston on Friday

    2k to 12k - with pref draw - cheapies off the front

    But the most expensive  horse Remember Joe in at 12k - and probably with the best forms - 3 recents 2nds and won a race a couple of months back  - and Betfair have got it equal fave at $3.50  but it is only 1st emergency

    I  wonder why its only an emergency
