Is Bob Peters a Dockers fan?

West Australian Racing
Looks like he's done Hayden Ballantyne a few favours.

    Don’t think we can question Grant and Alana’s ability on recent form but what’s Hayden doing? Nothing untoward implied just saying he could be on the rise with these performances

    Bob would go another level if so.

    I think more the case he was given a massive leg up with Mankind and the winner of the last yesterday. Why else would someone as astute as Bob move those horses on when they still had their best in front of them.

    Bob is West Coast fan , he had a corporate box at Subi, but I don't know if he has one at Optus

    Pretty sure he just got them at a sale that anyone could have chimed in didn’t he?

    If that is the case, he has done his homework very well because he has picked up Bob's best. Maybe Grant Williams is a Dockers fan?

    I can recall he had horses with George at the same time as Yossie Golderg.

    Yes, probably right. I know George trained for him at one stage.

    Bob like everyone else has to move some horses on. Think of it like this, sellers on e-bay, positive feedback (or results as this case may be) from buyers is paramount. You cant just sell the shite ones, you need to move on some good ones as well otherwise there will be no buyers of any kind in the future.

    Yes but the best of the ones he moves on have been going to H.Ballantyne!

    Probably does more homework than anyone else

    Probably does more homework than anyone else

    If it's just homework then the astute purchases should come from multiple sources. So far they all seem to be ex Peters that can gallop. I suspect he may be privy to some inside info.

    George Way was his 1st trainer followed by Roy Edwards

    Bob has sold many winners at his sale, Old Cobber probably being the best, if he can sell a horse with a few wins to come people will keep coming back to buy the next group

    well before Yosse, Dave Golding was Georges owner at the time, Bob worked for Dave at Premier Motors. 1st horse was a horse called Cagney by Todman. was no good, so George went to Singapore to try and sell it, he lost the horse playing cards up there,  my late father was the winner, was sold on at a handy profit but it never won a race

    nice to see you pop up again piston_broke. what you do not know about perth racing in years gone by is not worth writing home about. you certainly must have listened to and drove your Dad mad...and picked up a lot along the way.
    i heard a bit from my dad, but nothing like you.
    we are going up to kal. on june 1st mainly to catch up with the Fernies....my cousin has some great big b&w photos.
