    PLattitude also snuck into the same race, only 7 in the race and he got two of the names wrong, an embarrassment. No laughing matter, it is awful.

    Ritchies biggest problem as a caller - is he is a punter - and thus you can make mistakes 

    I like the Qld caller Chris Barsby - he calls each race with plenty of excitement - and it is totally unbiased in the call - re every horse in the race 

    That race in question - where the 2 mistakes have been mentioned - the biggest  knock on that call to me is when the winner Star of Willoughby hit the line and won 

    That Qld caller would have called that with full of excitement and deservedly so - where as Ritchie he nearly cried when they hit the line - might have knocked him out of the jackpot  4 and quaddies

    If you owned Star of Willoughby - given that it has come with a sensational run - spotted the leaders 40 metres at the 400 - probably its career best win - well youd probably want to watch the replay  ( especially the last 400 ) 20 plus times - it deserved an exhilarating call - especially when it hit the line and won - deserved a crescendo for its performance - but in my opinion didnt receive it

    I honestly thought the first time he called the horse “Cowboys and Indians” it was a bit of a bad joke. But it went for the whole race, was half expecting an apology at the end.
    The horse has good country form and is not an unknown so really no excuse.

    Race 4 when he said and Hampton banner has won with wild west was crossing the line in front.
